So, here are 2 stars, freshly done.. 3rd picture is 2 days after.. all lines gone, shading very light
4th and 5th pictures are my recent healed work
I'm using Intenze Zuper Black for everything, lining and shading.. some tattoos heal great some very poorly and I can't figure out why, can anyone help!?
PS. I'm selftaght since no one in my are wants to teach

At a guess I would say not enough stretch on the skin. Needle is going in but the elasticity of the skin means it’s not going deep enough.

Appreciate it
What about those?

You sure you’re not using a shading machine for lining and vice-versa ? the outline of the swallow looks waaay too thick as does some of your script, looks like it will be almost unreadable in 3-5 years, the little heart looks like you just went too fast and barely scraped the skin. 

I feel maybe the issues could be from your machines and how you are using them, that is to say that maybe your machine speed and hand speed ain’t quite in harmony !

Used Cheyenne Hawk Thunder for every tattoo (shading and lining) except  the stars, on stars I used Spektra Xion

Rotary machines I don’t have a clue about apart from the fact that they usually have different cams  so maybe that’s the problem you’re having , wrong cam for the wrong job which in effect is the same as using the wrong coil machine.

The only rotary I’ve used was a Dan Kubin mini cranker that one of the moderators on here kindly sent me to try.

Get yourself a decent coil liner.  That way you can adjust the force of the hit with the voltage as you work.  The majority of your line work is either falling out or blowing out.  Thunder's got a 4+ mm throw on its cam.  It's a jackhammer.  Not suitable for subtle work unless you've really got a good feel for skin tension and needle depth.

Thank you so much, what should I look for in liner?
