    Anyone tried any of the black and grey ink sets?

    I like Silverback washes personally , I have tried the eternal and hated it... and I pre-mixed my own as well

    Alternative to green soap

    Doc Bonners Peppermint soap.. or just a few drops of dial anti bacterial pump soap in yer wash bottle

    Anesthetics?whats Good?

    I will use bactine on my clients around 2.5-3 hour mark when they start to pussy out .. it knocks back the pain a lil ,, and keeps them in the chair longer

    Palmolive Dish Soap

    i just use 91% Alcohol to prep the skin ... and Just Dis tiled water in my rinse bottle... i used to use a few drops of dial pump soap in the mix... but ya dont need it .. and it's one less thing to irritate the skin

    Personal Cleansing Washcloths

    i agree way too much extra stuff in there.. water and a lil bit of dial do the trick for me ..
  19. here s a decent list My link I would stay clear of a "Kit" non of the shit in them is really worth keeping... I would buy a decent power supply and a liner to practice with and save for a shader... Technical Tattoo Supply has decent starter gear. be sure to read up on BBP and CC... maybe hang at the shop and watch yer buds set up and break down routines... it easy to create bad habits read this forum and any thing ya can and learn up I like Eternal ink, Skin Candy , few Mom's and Starbrite for inks

    Recommended Suppliers

    I would avoid buying kit .. just starting out I would buy a decent P/s and a liner and work on piggy till you can save for a decent shader.. most machines and p/s in the kits are junk I bought a kit from Technical and there wasn't any thing that i didn't replace.
