Need help...

Post by tyler300888 on Tue Jan 10, 2017 9:15 pm

I done a tattoo the other day and everything went wrong..

The first couple of lines went in ok but after about 20 minutes the ink wouldn't stay in. It took 2 or 3 passes just to get lines in.

I tried filling it with a 7mag and the same was happening.

I really don't know what I was doing wrong, I tried everything to solve it but nothing was working.

Is it true that people can reject the ink? If so why? And can this be prevented?

Thanks in advance

Skin can become less receptive but that's usually after quite a while, certainly over 20 minutes,,, were they bleeding excessively??. Some people bleed more than usual, this can bleed the ink out.. if that was the case I find it better to go back over it after its stopped bleeding..

No Merit, not much blood at all really. it was almost like i wasnt going deep enough but i was lol. iv tattooed the same person a couple of times before with no problems. Once its healed ill have another go and try to tidy it up.

Sometimes changing the needle and even the tube can help.

Also check the tips of the needles they can pick up bits of fibre from what you use to wipe down, they get blocked and won't penetrate the skin.

Which Tesco one is that Head? I have certainly had that where the kitchen roll fibres get caught up in the needle. Just change both needle and tube and start again
