small detail shading

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Pretty new to the forum, I have been an apprentice for 5 months now I think and have done only a few tattoo's.

I was wondering about how you guys shade really small detail, my mentor says I cant use a magnum for this or a soft edge and that I should do it with a 3rl.

I have been doing it this way but it does not look like how I want it...

Like you see in the picture im having trouble with the beard, I do it with a whiping motion like I would do dots but really slow...more like scratching.

Do you guys have any tips or insights that could help me?

Thanks in advance!
