Technique Tips

Stretching fingers: thumb, pointer and index finger.

Regardless of variables, always stretch the skin firmly in the direction that you are tattooing. (up, across or down)

Angle
To ensure as much pigment as possible is placed in the dermis your needle angle should be at 90 degrees to the working surface (the face is not flat). The needle must enter the skin straight, otherwise the blade will bend and create undesirable strokes and not penetrate properly creating scar tissue or loss of pigment.

Depth
Your needle should go in 1.2 – 1.4mm into the skin. You will need to take into consideration thicker and thinner skin. It is ok to adjust your pressure depending on skin thickness. If you’re in doubt go in with less pressure and go over the stroke until you find the right pressure with surface bleeding.  Scar tissue usually requires a little more attention to the pressure. Even though it may look like its been pigmented, don’t be surprised to see that it heals lighter than the rest if the tattooed area. Never tattoo directly over a mole. Take the stroke 1 mm up to the mole then continue the stroke 1 mm after the mole to keep some distance. 

Speed
Your speed needs to be very slow and controlled.The needle must stay consistent in the skin through each hair stoke. Put enough pressure onto the skin to create minimal surface bleeding.

Did the zoom course for Nano brows and my instructor was amazing. A very in depth course. Was certified right away after doing my model. So happy with this school. Also Did the online course for Brow lamination and lash lift online and those courses were also thorough and in depth. Will be taking more courses soon :))

Such an amazing experience. Very quick and thorough course. Very laid back and stress-free zone! They are very flexible and understanding. My model was my dad and he fell really ill the day he came over for his brows. They called me right away and reassured me they'd reschedule and work with me to become certified asap! So thankful.
