Textured needles

I have been working with only textured needles lately, my supplier reassured that they are great, and do not cause more damage, but a have been experiencing issues I didn't have before, every once in a while I feel like my needle is tearing up the skin, I have tried to play with the volts, but usually the only solution was to switch to a bigger grouping. That usually happen in gentle areas like wrists or ankles, but not always. Is it possible that the only reason is the textured needles? Can it really increase the skin trauma that much?
If so what about textured magnums?

RE:Textured needles

Hey James, thanks for the reply, yes they are the same taper, medium standart, having trouble with mostly small groupings, like liner 5,7 or 4. Tried opening the soldering a bit, to make them less tight, that helps a bit but I don't like the fuzzy lines, I want my edges super sharp.

RE:Textured needles

Textured needles are great for saturation due to there ability to hold ink in there texture. I find them not so good for lining with them not being smoth and polished. I found that if I use a low power it compensates for how fast the texture puts the ink in I find that helped with the fuzzyness on single pass lines.

RE:Textured needles

I tryed textured needles for lineing. Used them twice and threw them away, I think tare the skin up a lot for outlineing! Good for colors though. But, I used them on a piece on the front thigh and rear thigh, and the outline is so horrible / destroyed cause of the textured needle. Your supplier will properly say what ever to sell you stuff and make money. So trust what you experience and get your supplies elsewhere. I live in Denmark, and I get my supplies from England and Germany since the suppliers here care more about making money than selling good products.
