What tattoo artists hate?
Tattoo artists hate when clients don’t trust the process, schedule something immediately after their appointment, or go to the beach right away. Showing up intoxicated or not listening to your artist’s suggestions will make the tattooing process unpleasant.

Rotary tattoo machines have needles that move slightly faster than in the coil ones and have the consistent movements that are exceptionally good for laying out the color. Thus, it is generally true that smaller needle groupings produce the nicest work with the rotary machines.
When choosing a tattoo machine, it’s best to ask more experienced tattoo artists and read reviews about different tattoo machine brands. The most important thing to consider is the quality of the tattoo machine. Choose tattoo machines that are made of copper, iron or brass.
Pros and Cons of Rotary and Coil Tattoo Machines
The rotary is loved for being low maintenance and its fast needle movement but shading tends to be easier with a coil machine. The coil is often preferred for its intricate line work but it requires a high skill level to use it.

Use a standard angle between 45 and 60? to put color into the skin. Most people work in small tight circles, but with mags, I have found that a Box Motion works better than circles.
Most modern tattoo parlors and artists use a tattoo machine, or “gun,” to inject the colored inks rapidly into the skin. A conscientious and qualified tattoo artist will work to keep the needle to a consistent depth of about 1/16th of an inch, or no deeper than the third layer of skin.
#12 gauges are highly popular across all needle groupings and tattoo styles. Anyone referring to #12 or 0.35mm needles may also call them Standards. Common in lining and traditional work as they have a faster ink flow. Great for bold lines and colour packing/shading large areas.
