Hi I'm Brandon Pearce with Foolish Pride Tattoo Company in St. Petersburg Florida, I'm here to tell you a little bit about, how to load a tattoo needle, also setting up a tattoo machine, which is basically part of loading the needle. So basically you have your tube right here with the tip, also the needle. When it comes to loading it always make sure the needle is facing away from you at all times. Be very, very careful to make sure you're not hitting sides, you're not hitting anything, you're not bending the needle, you're not bending the actual shaft of the needle. When you're running it through your tube you always want the solder up. And see how the needles coming out of the tip right there. Every needle is different depending on the company you're ordering from. So always the rule of thumb is, you want the solder up, solder is where the needle actually attaches to the shaft which goes into the machines. From there you're just going to load it into your machine and away you go, you just have to set up the rest of the machine and you're ready to start tattooing. So that's a little bit about how to load a tattoo needle. Again, I'm Brandon Pearce from Foolish Pride Tattoo Company. Good luck. Always make sure you're using clean needles.
