Everything You Need to Know About Stick and Poke Tattooing, According to a Pro
Fine line tattoos have been a major trend over the past two years, Instagram is awash with them, and everyone seems to either have one or want one, myself included. Only when I decided to get mine, I decided to do it a little differently than your traditional machine tattoo. I opted for a stick and poke.
This tattoo technique is exactly what it sounds like: it involves ink, a single needle, and a skilled tattooist using a dotting motion to press the ink into your skin. To be honest, it sounds kinda savage, but it’s a process that’s basically been around since the dawn of time, and it’s pretty rare to find a tattooist who actually prefers and exclusively practices the technique.
