Keeping this in consideration, can u use eyeliner for stick and poke?
A tattoo puts the “ink” into your blood stream and into your skin.. you can only use sterile non toxic ink if you expect a tattoo to not get infected.. … Eyeliner is too thick for it to get in there deep enough to stick in the place it needs to stick.. which is about halfway through your skin.
Moreover, what needles can you use for stick and poke?
The most popular one used for stick and poke tattoos is #12 with a diameter of 0.35mm. You may also want to use #10 or 0.30mm as it is great for finer lines. The smaller the diameter, the less ink flow. That said, smaller needles such as #6 and #8 do provide more control.

For example, a 3RL would be 3 needle points, and a 9MS would be 9 needle points. The smaller the number, the smaller the mark. A 1rl is the smallest needle available, but can be hard to work with. In our kits, 3rl is the smallest needle in our kits.
And try to poke as precise as you can on the line you made. Doing pokes as close as you can. Also, the bigger the needle you use, the easier it is to make a bold line, because it covers more surface area. A 5 or 7round liner, or even a 9 round liner, you’ll notice a huge difference in your progress.
