I went to a new artist for some Japanese work. We only did the outline and he was a little heavy handed and I ended up with some ink blow out. It should be able to be fixed when shading is added. I'll tell him to lighten up but can shading cause blowout? I'm not too sure how the needles differ from shading and outline.

I've been worked on from some pretty heavy handed mofo's but I dont think I've seen it from the shading/coloring process. It happens from the outline for a number of reasons..needle groupings, machines running too hard, and some skin is real thin and no matter what you do it'll blow out. One word of advice..if this a new artist to you..dont tell him to 'lighten up', some guys are assholes and will really make it hurt then, lol.

I'll just tell him that I think the needle went too deep in a couple places because I have blowout and hope that he takes the hint lol. Thanks Mario.
