This stippling technique stands out for its forgiving nature, enabling tattooers to gradually build texture and values with minimal skin trauma. The method is characterized by its low impact, causing almost no redness or bleeding when executed correctly.
This approach involves a whipped stipple or raking movement, akin to applying a light gray wash, delicately working off the needle's tip and brushing the skin. You can also try scumbling or quickly making little circular movements in small areas to achieve similar effects with a different sort of pattern.
The result is a remarkably consistent stippled look, offering a distinctive texture to the tattoo. The precision of working off the needle's tip allows for meticulous dot work and texture creation without compromising the skin.
