What are Bugpin Needles?
Answer: Bugpin Needles are just a smaller needle gauge/diameter that are used when making tattoo needles. The industry standard is the #12 Gauge Needle (0.35mm needle diameter). We now offer 2 even smaller size: #10 Bugpin Needle (0.30mm needle diameter) or an even smaller #8 Bugpin Needles (0.25mm needle diameter).
Please Note: because these needles are much thinner in diameter, they will use a smaller TIP SIZE then your standard #12 needle. Please refer to the chart below to know which tube will fit these needles correctly.
