Hi Devan, to learn more about needle configurations we advise you to read our Advice Hub article “Tattoo Needle Guide“. Round liners (RL) are as the name suggests, mainly for lining. However, with special techniques, shading can also be achieved. Round Magnums (RM) are mainly suitable for filling large areas and for soft shading. Again, it depends on the technique, and lines can also be drawn with magnums. Round Shaders (RS) are recommended for smaller shadings.

Before tattooing human skin, we strongly advise you to train with an experienced professional tattoo artist. Your first tattoos should be done under the eye of an experienced tattoo artist to avoid unpleasant experiences for you and your client.
