I want to start doing stick n pokes but idk where to start lol!??!!?!?! :(
ahhh i love stick n pokes its so much fun yea well i recommend buying some tattoo needles on amazon (i started with sewing needles but tattoo needles are SO much better and not that expensive) they come in big packs and are individually packed to be sterile and disposable. I usually shave the area where i wanna poke, rub alcohol on skin to sterilize. u wanna pour some ink into a small sterile plastic container so that you can dip the needle in it. You can buy tattoo ink on amazon too, I use india ink which also works p well (you don’t want to use any other type of ink besides tattoo ink or india ink!!). you can either draw on a design with a pen (different color ink) or get tattoo transfer paper to trace and transfer a design or use the method where u put clear deodorant on skin then press a pen drawing on paper onto the skin to transfer the design. then u dip the needle into the ink and poke into the skin where you want to design to be. It takes some getting used to cause you want the ink to go under the skin but not too deep and you’ll have to go back over the same area several times, wiping the excess ink away as you go. at the end either put a bandaid or something to cover it for at least a few hours and dont touch it to make sure it doesnt get infected. thats pretty much it!!! oh also you should probably pick a really simple and small design for your first one and then later you can get more ambitious once you’ve gotten used to it. i have 4 stick n poke tats and i have some experience doing them on myself and others lemme know if u have anymore questions!
