What is the proper tattoo needle depth?

Answer

The proper tattoo needle depth varies depending on the application. Shading and some color techniques do require a deeper penetration of the skin. With the skin having three layers, the needle should not penetrate past the dermis layer. The dermis layer is the second layer. The epidermis is the top layer and the subcutaneous layer is the tissue layer. Some artists are able to practice on cadavers, which makes it easier to get a feel for real skin.
