Handpoke tattoos are a style of tattooing which uses needles to create an indelible design on the skin. This technique relies on hand-powered needles to puncture the skin. The punctures create a pigment stain. The artist then continues this process until the drawing is complete. Typically, handpoke tattoos are done in a “dot-work” style.
Handpoke tattoos hurt less than machine tattoos, but the process is not without risk. While handpoke tattoos may take longer to complete, they heal faster and are less invasive. The amount of pain you experience depends on the size and location of the tattoo as well as the artist.
If you’re considering getting a handpoke tattoo, you should know that there are several different types available. The different types are called Stick N Poke tattoos and Hand Poke Tattoos. Handpokes are available in a variety of colors and can be applied to all skin types. Although handpokes are suitable for all skin colours, they’re not the best choice for colour-sensitive skin. Therefore, you should use a tattoo artist who specializes in hand poke tattoos.
A hand poke tattoo is believed to heal faster than a stick and shade tattoo. Although the hand poke needle does not go as deep into the skin, it does still produce a wound. It is essential to clean the wound after the tattooing process to prevent infection. Using a fragrance-free lotion can help.
A handpoke tattoo also requires less aftercare than a stick and poke tattoo. Hand poked tattoos take less time to heal, compared to machine tattoos, and often cause less scabbing and itching. Hand poking also takes much less time, because each individual cell is poked individually.
