Shallow meaning ??

Hey guys,
I was wondering what shallow really means ?
Thanks in advance


RE:Shallow meaning ??


literal meaning is "of little depth."

in the application of tattooing. shallow means to use use just the tips of the needle in an effort to place "smaller dots" in relation to the taper of the needles in the skin. or to place ink in the upper part of the second layer of skin in the effort to maximize the effect of light penetrating the thickness of the top layer of skin in the effort to see pigment more clearly. in terms of black and grey, it helps with reducing the level of redness to the skin during the tattooing process.

hope that helps

Take care
