Hereof, what voltage should I run my rotary tattoo machine at?
Keeping this in consideration, what angle do you tattoo at?
How far should the needle be out on a tattoo gun?
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.

A rotary tattoo machine can create both lines and shades and this can be simply done by selecting a different needle. In this way, the benefits of a rotary coil machine outnumber the benefits of a coil tattoo machine making it a better choice for tattoo artists.
Shader needles can also be used for lining and there is no reason why you shouldn’t use them. If they work for you and you say you get a good line then that’s ok, so I would recommend using what works for you.
The most painful places to get tattooed are those with the least fat, most nerve endings, and thinnest skin. Bony areas usually hurt a lot.
Absolutely this. If u pull the machine backwards the needle becomes loose & jumps around. The reason we bend the needle slightly & put rubber bands on is to keep the needle tight against the tip. If you use diamonds you can pull a line without it jumping all over the place.
Push the needle into your skin.
It’s very difficult to push a tattooing needle in too deeply because of the design of the needle will keep it from happening, but you do need to make sure it goes deep enough, at least a few millimeters. As you do, start moving it along the outline of your design.
