Soldering Tattoo Needles
By Sarah Freeland
As a tattoo, you are more likely to have found that the cost of tattoo can be. However, some costs can be reduced considerably if you have time and knowledge to do so. Make your own tattoo needles can save money, but is it time? This is something you have to ask. Each artist will develop their own technique for making needles. Although it is more common pre-purchase and pre-sterile tattoo needles.
Tattoo needles are formed by welding of a group of needles on a needle bar or rod to the rear. The length of the needle bars range from 4.5-5 cm in length. All bars for tattooing needles have a loop or eye at one end.
Clusters of needles may be made in several different sizes and shapes, but the most common groups are the towers, apartments, houses, and mags (magnums). Rounds are more commonly used for coating, or portraits. Apartments for shading, and mags to complete the job.
Rounds were made by the needles in a circular weld, the tightening of patrols more frequent line while losing series are better suited to shade. The apartments are welded together in a row, and may be "loose" or "tight" configuration, while most artists prefer a flexible grouping of needles. Mags can be single or double stack of flats as they are welded together, but they are separated at the top and bottom lines, or they are stacked.
Making your own hands is a meticulous process, and you need to have the right set up to do. Remember, just because you make your own needle sterilization there are still steps to be taken. That pre-needles purchased in bulk, or self-made needles, they must be individually packaged and autoclave before use.
