  1. Hey Ann
    I really love your course and your tool too (which ich have)…
    I have one question: on the fake skin there is always a lot of ink while you’re tattooing… is it also on real skin?
    Would be so awesome to see this on real skin… not particularly the colorfading… just how ink and needle reacts on real human skin done by a pro (so you 😏)
    Thanks so much 😍✌️

      Thank you and happy to hear you love the tool and the course πŸ™‚
      Tattooing on real human skin is much cleaner. The ink does not stick to the skin as much as to artificial skin. This is soemthing that is really annoying πŸ˜‰
      I have a few videos of me handpoking on my IG ( there is a longer one that I posted on may 25th for example) πŸ˜‰

  2. Hi Ann,

    when changing colors, you mention washing the needle in your water cup. How do you make sure there’s no ink stuck in between the pins? Do you kind of wiggle it in the water cup or how do make sure not to muddy up the colors with ink residue on the needle?

      That is actually a little tricky, because there is always a little ink left between the needles. If I use a wide range of colors I will use two needles and two water cups, one for light shades and one for darker shades. If the hues are not too different you won’t see it even if there is a little bit of ink left. If I use white too, for highlights for example, I will also use a third needle. White always gets it’s own πŸ˜‰ If this is not enough for your purpose because you are using a lot of colors you can use a little thing called “dipcap”. From the shops I buy from it is available at “killerink” and “tattoosafe”. That’s basically a sponge to clean your needles. You can just poke ypour needle in to clean it. If you want to properly clean your needle with it. First clean your needle in your water cup, poke it into the dipcap again, then apply the new color you want to use to your needle and poke it into the dipcap again. Do so until you don’t see any leftovers of the previous color anymore. In my experience you need the fresh color to completely clean your needle, it works better with the new ink than with just water πŸ˜‰
