Killer Ink Precision Needles (#12)

Killer Ink Precision tattoo needles are made from the finest quality 304 surgical stainless steel and contain lead-free solder for precision grouping.

Our Precision needles are shiny in appearance as they are electropolished prior to being sterilised with EO gas. Other badly configured tattoo needles are usually dull in appearance due to the use of poor quality steel and lead solder.

The Killer Ink Precision needles are 12 gauge and feature microneedles that are 0.35 mm in diameter, with needle sizes ranging from a single Liner to 49 Magnums.

Seven different configurations of Killer Ink Precision needles are available: Round Liner, Round Shader, Large Shader, Curved Magnum, Magnum Weaved, Magnum Stacked, and Flat.

Killer Ink Double Zero Needles (#10)

As with our Precision needles, the Killer Ink Double Zero tattoo needles are produced from top-quality 304 surgical steel and feature lead-free solder.

Our Double Zero needles are 10 gauge, with each microneedle 0.30 mm in diameter. Killer Ink Double Zero tattoo needles are offered in five configurations: Round Liner, Round Shader, Curved Magnum, Magnum Weaved, and Flat.

Killer Ink Bugpin Needles (#08)

Made from high-quality 304 surgical stainless steel and containing lead-free solder, the Killer Ink Bugpin tattoo needles are some of the best needles around!

Our Killer Ink Bugpin needles are 8 gauge and contain microneedles measuring 0.25 mm in diameter.

The Bugpin needles are more suited to portraits and realism tattoos because of their great ink flow and smaller microneedle size, which allows for more detailed work.

Killer Ink Bugpin needles are available in the same five configurations as the Double Zero needles: Round Liner, Round Shader, Curved Magnum, Magnum Weaved, and Flat.
