Tribal time

Post by skulltattoo80 on Mon Feb 20, 2017 10:35 am





I know it's not the cleanest but it's taken 7 or 8 hours so far. How long should something like this take?

I'm sure you were bored out your mind lol. You can get a lot of practice during tribal, get that whip shading down, stretch the skin, leave it lose and just see the different shades you get from doing that. Also practice on angle of entry like the shovel method 45 degree angle pushing forward really packing in the black, then don't stretch the skin so tight and sweep backwards for laying in the light tones. If I'm doing tribal I'm practicing all type of shit, lol

Thanks merit. I used a 5 rs to line and 1st session I used an 11 mag, the 2nd session an 18 rs

I know tribal is time consuming but you recon that's way too long?

I'll have to try and find a way to get the ink in quicker

I'm going to use a 5rl to sharpen the points when finished

I'm afraid of chewing the skin up, as I'm using a direct drive rotary at about 7 volts but might try turning it up to 8 or 9 to see what happens

as far as time i remember doing my first ever tribal and it took about 8 hours and this poor lad sat like a rock , now i can get through a piece of tribal like that in about 4-5 depending on size ,, but it takes as long as it takes , you get more colour packed by working slowly its time consuming. and you wont always get through it all at once sometimes you have to leave it for the day and come back
