By James Spooner of Timeless Tattoo in Hollywood, California. You can’t use shading needles on hand tattoos as they can’t get the ink deep enough. He could only use the bigger deeper needle. Hand tattoos fade (and hurt) so they aren’t recommended. Colors fade more than black or brown. This will fade into a solid color in a little bit. In this photo you still see the blue outline from the transfer. That will wash off. It’s a black/brown tattoo.
I rescue coyotes. I also lobby for them. I want to shake politicians’ hands with my coyote paw print tattoo.

*He did not want to do a palm tattoo because they hurt and fade quickly. I convinced him to give it a shot. I told him I’m okay if it hurts or fades. I’ve noticed with palm tattoos that it’s the colors that fade which is why he used no color.
