What is the difference between Flat, Magnum, Stack and
Micro Blading needles?
A Flat tattoo needle is a single horizontal row of any number of needles.
The smallest Flat is a 3 Needle Flat and the largest in commercial production
(by Unimax) is a 49 needle single row Flat.
What is a Magnum tattoo needle?
A Magnum tattoo needle is a single row of an odd number of needles the
tail
soldered together so that each even number needle, for example, the 2nd, 4th,
6th etc can be bent upwards
about the diameter of the needle that functions to more easily fill solid and
shaed areas without
slicing the skin as happens with a single row of unbent needles called a flat.
A Stack is any number of needles together in a row
with another
row of needles minus one needle solder together, one row on top of the larger
row.
What are Micro Blading Needles?
Unimax has been manufacturing "Micro Blading" cluster needle "heads"
(without the bar) for decades consisting of an equal number of needle flats
one on top of the other in as many as 6 rows high of 6 needle flats
with the needle rows assembly slanting at a 45 degree angle.
Magnums ARE MADE LIKE THIS.  Stack is like pancakes.
