  1. Hi Ann, Thank you for this thorough handpoke course, I’m learning so much from it!

    For the third example, do you use grey wash for the whole square? Or do you start with undiluted black ink first?

    Also, when you dilute your ink with water, do you use distilled water?

    Thanks again!

    1. Hey Naomi 🙂
      I use grey wash for the whole square and I use extra ink dilluter that you can buy in any tattoo equipment online shop.
      It’s better than just using water.
      But if you don’t want to buy it you can use water too.
      In gereral I use tab water only in my water cup (and this again I only use to dillute my ink if I don’t need much greywash).
      But the water standards in my country are very high and tab water is safe to use for tattooing.
      If you are not sure how the waterquality in your country is destilled water will be a good solution to be safe.

      I mostly use 3RLs for the dotwork. But I would suggest starting out with a 5RL at the beginning. Its a little easier to use and still fine. So you can get used to the technique first 🙂

  2. Hi Ann,
    Is it possible to use magnum to work faster on a large tattoo or it will just packing the area ?
    Thanks for the videos 🙂

    1. Hey Claire 🙂
      Do you mean for lining for example? Yes it is possible bit it takes some practice and you can’t do narrow curves 😉
