Killer Ink Tattoo stocks various stick and poke tattoo tools for professional artists that are perfect for creating hand poke tattoos.
To create stick and poke tattoos, take a standard tattoo needle and cut off the needle bar loop, leaving about 4 cm of the bar, before inserting it into the stick and poke tool.
Available in aluminium or brass, our stick and poke tattoo tools come with a standard 10 mm diameter tip or a larger fixed tip with a 20 mm diameter.
Professional tattoo needles are the best type to use as stick and poke needles as they are high-quality, safe to use, and offer unmatched control. The correct stick and poke needles to use comes down to preference, but if in doubt, a good place to start when creating hand poke tattoos is with a 3 or 5 round liner.
When it comes to the best stick and poke ink to use, we recommend tattoo ink from Silverback Ink®. In particular, Silverback Ink® Stupid Black is ideal for stick and poke tattoos due to how its consistency sticks to the hand poke needles.
If you’re looking to put together a stick and poke tattoo kit, you’ll need the following supplies: a stick and poke tool, a tattoo needle and a disposable tip. The disposable tip is not needed as part of a stick and poke kit if you’re using a hand poke tool with a fixed tip. We offer bundles that will make it easier for you to select a stick and poke tattoo kit that is right for your tattooing style and preferences!
