KWADRON Cartridge System - 0.35mm SEM - Soft Edge Magnum - 1pc
A top quality Kwadron SEM Soft Edge Magnum cartridge with a diameter of 0.35 mm (#12). The curvature of the needles in this cartridge creates what is known as a haze when shading, i.e. a more intense colour in the centre and a shadow cast on the outside. Ideal for creating tonal, smooth transitions, fading effects and the like. Great for filling in black or colour, softer shading (less traumatic to the skin), as in portraits, realism or blurred backgrounds.
Pack of 20, price per piece.

Kwadron Soft Edge Magnum
Due to their 'curved' shape, curved magnums allow the tattooed colours to blend seamlessly without creating a marked edge of colour. This effect is perfect for creating a blurred background, a photographic bokeh-like effect, blending and blending colours with a soft transition. With Kwadron Soft Edge Magnum you will make the edges of the image 'blur' into the skin instead of being outlined.
What size of Soft Edge Magnum cartridge should I choose?
If you are wondering what size Kwadron Cartridge Soft Edge Magnum you should choose, we have a hint for you. Smaller ones (fewer needles in the cartridge, such as 25/7) are great for filling in narrow areas, shading fine details and creating texture. As a general rule, you should use the largest magnum that the tattoo you are doing allows. If you choose to use a small SEM to cover a large area, it will be more difficult to achieve a uniform fill or smooth transition. For example, if you use a size 7 magnum to fill an entire tribal style sleeve, it will take forever and cause unnecessary damage to your client's skin. If you do a coloured background, the application of colour will be uneven and cause the tattoo to heal unevenly. If you're going to fill in large areas of skin, use a larger magnum, such as 21 or 23, or opt for the newcomer from Kwadron, the Kwadron Combat Magnum.These will cover a larger area and produce smoother gradients than smaller sets.
Tattoo needle sizes make a difference.
Not only are the needles marked 0.35(#12) larger than those marked 0.30 (#10), but also the distances between the needles in their configuration are larger. Therefore, while a 0.35/15 Magnum needle, for example, will allow you to quickly fill a large tattoo area with colour, the 0.30/15 magnum configuration will be slightly smaller, despite having the same number of needles, because their spacing is closer together. This will slow you down as the needle will not be as large and will deliver less ink to the skin, Using a cartridgy 0.30 (#10) needle size provides a smoother application of colour to the skin, will allow for softer shading and make smoother transitions between black and grey. The smallest needle size of 0.25 (#08) will allow you to make fine details, for example in portraits It allows for several passes over the skin, which minimises skin damage but will slow down your work. If you need to indent or fill an area with solid colour choose 0.30 (#10) or preferably 0.35 (#12).
