Tattoo methods for deep and shallow layer of skin
When you begin to learn tattoos, you must first understand the relationship between tattoo needles and tattoo skin. In order to enter the field of tattoo art, the most direct thing we want to know is the relationship between needle and skin. We all know that tattoo is the use of needle to destroy skin to form wounds. Pigments deposit in the skin through the wound and deposit in the skin.
Deep skin pricking:
The tattoo artist who uses this method will stab the skin as deep as possible, with a depth of more than 1 mm or even as fast as 4 mm. The color of the tattoo will be very thick and solid, but the skin will be damaged seriously because of the deeper and greater damage to the skin, resulting in scab formation of the wound later. Skin with scab is metabolic and regenerative, replacing the pigments on this layer of skin will also be removed. The pigments deposited at the bottom of this pricking method are necessary. That is to say, restoring the replaced skin will deplete some of the pigments deposited on the surface. Therefore, the pricking must be deep enough and the pigments must be heavy enough if the depth is not enough or the amount of pigments penetrates into it. Enough, the skin after scab, recovery and skin change, will find that all the light or shallow uneven, so it must be deep enough to penetrate into the paint enough. This deep skin prick is usually applied to color works or monochrome works requiring very dark and heavy colors. But some tattoo artists do the same with light colours, except that they dilute the paint to a very light colour and use it in the same way. The advantages of this method are uniform color, thick and good weight and texture. The disadvantage of this method is that the appearance of color will make it look like a kind of blindness because it is separated by a new layer of skin without pigment precipitation. From touching tattoo art to now, I have seen many different ways of embedding needles and hanging needles, various ways of expression. Slowly through these perceptions and my own experience, I find that there is no absolute depth, but tattoo master's stabbing method can be roughly summed up as the following two forms:
The pricking method of superficial skin layer:
The depth of this needling method is almost less than 3mm. It is characterized by only a thin layer of skin when the wound is healed. Because the skin surface is damaged little, the "brush pressure" feeling of drawing with a pin in a bit of pixels will focus on the touch between the pin and the skin to measure the suitable depth. The pigments mostly deposit in the shallow skin layer. This way must be used. Be careful, if skin damage is too serious and scab formation occurs, after recovery, there may be no advantage of this kind of prick. The advantage of this prick is that the color is very superficial. After recovery, there seems to be little difference between the prick and the prick. There is no blindness of deep skin pricking. The disadvantage is that the color is not thick enough, the weight and texture are poor, and this kind of superficial skin. Skin stabbing is usually used in monochrome works, because black itself has the darkest advantage, does not need to stab too deep, the degree of presentation has been very good, found that tattoo artists of these two kinds of stabbing will become a habit to use one of their own ideas, so if beginners do not understand the situation, see the two kinds of no Of course, each has its own advantages. The key point is to understand its key points. A few senior and excellent tattoo artists will use two different kinds of tattoos, and know their advantages and disadvantages. In fact, they can use their advantages freely. Strictly speaking, their depth is not certain. If we can find out the way we can use from experience and perception, maybe we can create a new way of expression. But if not, we should remember that we must study the reason deeply, instead of making random experiments with precious skin.
