    Cartridge Grip Conundrum
    I'm a professional tattooer, work in a shop, licensed, etc. and Im seeing so many tattooers, many with years more experience than I, using metal cartridge grips and simply wiping them down with Cavicide between clients. Am I missing something or is this totally unacceptable? How far do Cavicide wipes actually go?  3

    Tiny tattoo

    Advice on finger tattoo.
    I've got tattoos, but this tattoo I've had done 5 days ago looks weird in comparison to nearly all the others I've had.  It looks blotchy, faded and generally weird.  The ring finger is the one I've just had done and the corona is one i had done a year ago.  I've had the corona touched up multiple times, but has always ended up looking the same.  I do live in a very hot and humid climate, if that helps determine an awnser.  3
