Hand poked tattoos

Recommended Posts

While my next tattoo was supposed to be one of the big pieces I'm planning to get on my arm, I just made a spur-of-the-moment appointment for a small hand poked one. I've followed the artist's (she works in a studio where I've been tattooed twice so far) budding work over the last year or so, and after seeing one of her tattoos live, I just couldn't resist the temptation to get in touch with her to discuss the eventual feasibility of an idea I have. Obviously one thing led to another & I now have an appointment for the 20th :D.

So while I wait and obsess about the upcoming tattoo, I was curious to see what sort of hand poked tattoos do you guys have? Anyone have anything fun and/or useful to share on the subject?

Hand pokers have the advantage, that when the power goes out, they light a candle and do not stop. lol

If we ever go back to the stone age they are our boys and girls...

I have done a bit of hand poke and it is slow... even when designed to be efficient  ....

There are some great artist in that style

I have a friend with one hand poked tattoo and maybe the artist wasn't good, cause if you take a closer look - line consists of a lot of several dots. That's why I think this method is good only for dotwork style. I don't have a photo, sorry.

    • looks normal to me, it will take at least 6 weeks to heal and more to settle in.
    • hi just got this two weeks ago wondering if it’s healing normal or does it look weird 
    • I have a date set to get this design on my forearm. I’ve heard that fine lines and pointillism can sometimes blur easily so I am a bit worried that the grey pointillism leaf will blur out quickly. Any thoughts on if this will happen and how long it would take? Additionally, if this were to happen would it be possible to touch it up and somehow make it more crisp? For instance, by outlining the leaf with a thicker black line in the future if it were to blur? I just don’t want to end up with a grey blob I can’t do anything about on my arm in 5 years!
