One to fourteen needles are grouped and attached to the end of a rod called a needle rod. The other end of the needle rod is attached to the tattoo machine. The needle rod moves up and down through a tube or barrel, which serves two purposes: to prevent the needle rod from moving from side to side and as a handle for the tattoo artist. The needles protrude only a few millimeters from the end of the tube, so they do not penetrate deep into the skin. Learn about the potential risks and talk to your teen about dangers such as infections as well as social consequences.
