The stick and poke style of tattooing has been around for centuries, growing in popularity in the 1970s specifically with the rise of the punk movement. This rebel form of inking is now back at center stage, with many getting their new designs professionally in a studio and from the comforts of home.
Unfortunately, DIY tattoos are often done with household supplies such as pen ink and sewing needles. Both of these fail to provide the same results as specialized equipment plus they are highly toxic and dangerous tools to use.
Luckily, there are now professional stick and poke tattoo kits available to buy online. These come with everything from tattoo needles to ink, and all of the safety supplies you need to ensure you achieve the best results. Let’s take a closer look:
The Real Deal Experience from the Comforts of Home
Stick and poke tattoo kits are specifically designed for those who would like to try their hand at tattooing at home with their friends without having to invest in bulk orders of different supplies. With a professional tattoo kit, you’ll enjoy the same experience as you would in a professional tattoo studio without having to leave your living room.
Many of these kits come with step-by-step guides that allow you to practice tattooing using the stick and poke style while minimizing the risk of infections and the spread of harmful diseases. Assuming you use the kit properly, you’ll be able to create permanent body modifications that are personable and fun.
Materials in the Stick and Poke Tattoo Kit
There are different types of stick and poke tattoo kits available to choose from. The one you choose will depend on the amount of equipment you want and of course, whether or not you want it to include fake skin so you can practice before inking yourself or your friends. Typically, the kits come with the following materials:
Health and Safety Equipment
The stick and poke tattoo kit is specifically designed for those who would like the sensation of getting a safe homemade tattoo using professional equipment in order to achieve the best results. This is the primary reason that our kits include everything you need from a health and safety standpoint. Some health and safety supplies you can expect include:
Moreover, all of the materials in the stick and poke tattoo kit are new and many of them have been sterilized and individually packaged to ensure they are not contaminated.
Needles and Ink
What makes a professional stick and poke tattoo kit stand out from the common methods used to make homemade tattoos is the needles and ink. These kits come with a variety of different sized professional tattoo needles, all of which can be used to provide varying styles when creating your designs. Each and every needle has been sterilized and individually packaged ready for you to use. In our kits, we also offer tattoo grip wrap and tongue depressors so that you have more grip during the tattooing process.
All of our DIY tattoo kits come with a bottle of professional black tattoo ink as well as a selection of sterilized cups. We also offer the option to purchase a number of colored inks including white, red, pink, blue, green, yellow, orange, and brown. All of these inks are free of harmful chemicals and have not been tested on animals.
While practice makes perfect when it comes to tattooing, you also need to be able to transfer the designs you want onto the skin. Stick and poke tattoo kits come with professional stencils as well as transfer lubricant to ensure that the design stays on the skin even after you start wiping off excess tattoo ink. Some of our kits also include practice skin and practice needles so that you can get a feel for your new equipment before you create permanent designs on your body.
Your tattoo can only be as good as the care you provide it with during the healing process which is why we include all of the aftercare supplies you need in each and every one of our kits. We provide Hustle Butter as a form of lubricant during the tattooing process as well as an aftercare balm as it is natural, organic, and vegan. The solution minimizes redness, swelling, and bleeding, and doesn’t remove stencils. We also offer pre-cut protective films that can be applied on the skin instead of saran wrap once your tattoo is complete.
Always Operate With a High Level of Precaution!
One of the main reasons that tattooing at home is seen as taboo is because of the health and safety repercussions of using the wrong equipment. Before you start tattooing from home, make yourself aware of all of the risks, especially the spread of bloodborne pathogens. Also, make sure to operate in a clean and sanitized environment.
