      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

Color packing

Recommended Posts

Just ordered a machine for color packing but it seems to go against what I want in a color packer it has 18 gauge springs front and back and hits really hard? The front spring is almost what you would consider a cut back which is odd to me in the concept of color packing I.e. slow and hard hitting? Any recommendations on slowing this machine down and achieving a softer hit to build layers would be much appreciated. I will try to post a picture of it's initial setup.

.018" springs work well.  May just have too much tension on them.  Post pic's when you can.
