Short Taper #12 Standard 1000 Loose Tattoo Needles
Tattoo artists make their own needles because they want a very specific type of needle for a specific task, such as packing color, creating softer tones, or tight lines. The Loose Tattoo Needles are already shaped and waiting for you to create the layout you desire. The #12 Standard Short Taper Needles have a diameter of 0.35mm and a length of 30mm. The taper of a tattoo needle is the length of the point on the end of the needle. The short taper on these needles measures 1.4mm-1.5mm. Make sure to also get the needle bars you need; we offer the Flat or Round.
