Explore deals on hygienic, sterilized traditional needles in various diameters, styles, and groupings from the best-selling brands in tattoo needles and ink: Kwadron, Precision, Revolution, Envy, and more.

Tattoo Cartridge Needles

Cartridge needles sit in a housing mechanism called a cartridge, so the tattoo needle tip is only exposed while you’re actively working. Shop our user-friendly and innovative cartridge needle options from top-of-the-line brands, including Peak, Cheyenne Hawk, Kwadron, Stigma-Rotary, and Precision.

Types of Tattoo Needles

Shop the essential types of traditional tattoo needles and tattoo needle kits at Painful Pleasures. We are your one-stop online shop for all tattoo supply needs, from tattoo machines and tattoo ink to specific products like tattoo needle kits and tattoo gun needles.

Magnum Tattoo Needles

Magnum needles are the preferred tattoo needles for shading because they connect in two rows and pack the most ink. Magnum needles are useful for filling in large areas and blending.

Bugpin Tattoo Needles

Bugpin needles have thinner pins and are tightly connected. Bugpin needles slowly release ink to give you maximum control for intricate details for tattoos like portraits.

Round Tattoo Needles

Round needles are available as round liners or round shaders and are ideal for technical line work, color filling, or basic shading.

Round Liner Tattoo Needles

Round liner needles contain multiple needles closely packed together in a circular shape to form a round tip.

Round Shader Tattoo Needles

Shading needles also have multiple needles on a single bar, but they are placed next to each other in a staggered, straight, or curved line. They have larger spacing between needles compared to round liner tattoo needles.

Flat Tattoo Needles

Flat needles are soldered in a straight line to deliver bold, clear lines in a single stroke. Turn to flat needles when shading geometric shapes with straight lines.
