Tattoo needle size and tubes
There are four basic types of needles for tattoos. Some of them are designed for specific use, others can vary depending on how the tattoo-master uses them. Below we give a general explanation of the categories of needles and how you can use different types of needles.
- Round Liner, Round Shader. These are needles brazed by bundles, standard soldering includes from 1 to 18 needles, and visually such soldering is an ideal circle.Round Liner assumes bundled bundles, which are suitable for creating thin, medium or fat lines; with certain skills you can paint small spaces by using them.Round Shader assumes not tightened bundles; it is used for shadows in color and black and white works.There is a special group of beams. It is Tights Round Liners, which assumes needles tightly stapled to the point; they are used exclusively for the lines. Depending on how brave your plans are, you can choose from 3 to 18 needles for these purposes.
- Flats, Double Flats, Stacks are tightly welded to each other needles in one or two rows; they are used for coloring large areas. Such needles are applied in various techniques, for example for the image of clouds and waves. Needle range is from 4 to 15 needles.
- Magnum is the most popular version of needles for shading and shadows; it is used to perform work in different techniques.
Round-Curved Magnum is the Magnum fused with a crescent to avoid incisions which are often left by the usual magnum. There is a possibility of greater maneuverability in hard-to-reach places. Needle range is from 5 to 49 needles.
