The materials needed for a stick ‘n’ poke are simple but specific: a sewing needle, a pencil, tattoo or india ink, thread, a lighter, rubbing alcohol and unscented soap and lotion for aftercare. As basic as this process seems, it can be incredibly dangerous if done even a little bit wrong.
Likewise, people ask, what ink is safe for stick and poke?
Moreover, are stick and pokes illegal UK?
It is illegal in Britain to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 except when the tattoo is performed for medical reasons by a duly qualified medical practitioner or by a person working under their direction.
