Check Your Tattoo Needles!

Uncategorized Jun 16, 2019

I can't say how important it is to check your needles.  A jewelers eye loupe gives you an up-close look.  I prefer the ones with a light. Amazon has many to choose from.

You're looking for: 

  • soldering quality
  • bent needles
  • needle burrs

A burr is a hook on the end of the needle and it will cause a lot of skin trauma and bleeding during a procedure.

Check your needles, it only takes a few seconds and will save you time in the end.
