In this video, Daniel Yuck explains the concept of needle depth in tattooing and its importance. He discusses the three main layers of the skin: the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis.
Tattoo ink should be deposited into the dermis for the best results, as it ensures the tattoo will hold indefinitely. Depositing ink in the epidermis can lead to fading, while going too deep into the hypodermis can cause blowouts and scarring.
Needle depth varies depending on the person and the body part being tattooed, so understanding and adjusting needle depth is essential for a successful tattoo.
Daniel emphasizes that developing the skill to properly deposit ink into the correct skin layer takes practice and experience.
