Hello PMU Artists,
I thought there was a boom in our needle choices and I was mistaken. There is an explosion!
Isn't is a challenge to keep track of your needle favorites and which companies sell what sizes in the variety of configurations? I love needles and it's quite exciting to see what's coming to market for our PMU industry.
Of course, you could use most standard tattoo needle cartridges labeled for the tattoo industry or for the PMU industry in our procedures, however I must say, Im proud of the PMU industry pushing to the forefront and creating great products and a variety of needle choices for the variety rotary machines we have available to us today.
I decided to start a log sheet of some of the "PMU" needle cartridges available. This is by no way all of them and keep in mind, you could use most cartridges so long as the needles are the size, taper and configuration are you want for your artistry.
There is an abundance of needle...
