Machine work with I ❤️ INK

Machine work with I ❤️ Ink

When you first start using  I ❤️ Ink, you’ll notice the consistency may be thinner than what you’re used to, but don’t worry, I’m going to share my top tips that will allow you to get up to speed quickly and easily.  Remember, the line is ultra-concentrated and doesn’t have much glycerin (the stuff that makes pigment thicker) and you’ll get very rich and vibrant retention after each use.


  • Needle Tip

First, you want to make sure your microblading needle tip only overhangs about 2 mm from the tube chamber. If it is hanging out too much, it cannot suck up the ink into the tube properly and deposit easily.

  • Fill Tube Chamber with Ink

Next, turn on your machine and dip the needle into the ink and wait for the needle to fill the tube chamber with ink. You don’t want to just quickly dip the needle in, otherwise, it won’t gather enough ink to work into the skin.

  • Allow The Ink to Slide Down Needle

If you look closely you'll see ink has gathered at the tip of the tube. This is what you want. While you are working, this ink will slide down the needle and drop down onto the skin so that you can tattoo with that ink. This is similar to allowing the pigment to drop off of a microblading and then make your stroke. You always want to drop the ink onto the skin first so you are not tattooing with a dry needle.

  • Wipe Needle to Prevent Drying

Make sure you wipe your needle frequently to prevent it from drying up so that it is easy to work with and you make sure ink is deposited into the skin.
