To create this needle we have truly taken the ‘best of both worlds. The perfect midpoint between our AcuPoint® Whip Shader® and our MicroPoint® Liner. It combines the AcuPoint® acupuncture needle with the stability of the MicroPoint™ liner to create what we call: The Liner Shader.
The bullet shaped tip helps minimise trauma on entry to and exit from the skin and is perfect for shading when a needle with less flex is preferred. The Liner Shader also includes additional support components for a stable smooth and precise oscillation which allows for controlled line and detailed work.
The Liner Shader is a part of the AcuPoint® range due to it containing an acupuncture needle, however, we have created two variations of this specific needle. One is textured, one is polished. This needle is perfect for those who prefer shading with an acupuncture needle but would prefer more stability, or who love lining with a stable needle but prefer a bullet shaped tip. The Liner Shader utilises the same stabilisation components as the MicroPoint® Liner and is the perfect all-rounder for both lining and shading making it an incredibly versatile needle. A textured needle would be recommended when shading due to the larger surface area increasing pigment implantation and the polished finished would be recommended for hair strokes however this combined with diameter is a personal preference.

AcuPoint® Acupuncture Cartridge System:
AcuPoint® Acupuncture Cartridge System has been developed by Leah Richardson – The Cosmetic Tattooist, founder and co-owner of Cosmetic Tattoo Supplies.
Each AcuPoint® needle cartridge is built using only acupuncture needles which are known as the ‘painless needle’ due to the minimal trauma and pain caused by needle insertion. Acupuncture needle tips do not taper to a sharp point like a pencil or traditional tattoo needle, but instead have a rounded profile likened to a pinecone or bullet tip. This is less traumatic, pushing the fibrous tissues apart with each puncture to the skin as opposed to cutting through them.
The AcuPoint® range is further diversified by offering both textured and polished acupuncture needles for specific configurations to create more versatility and offer the middle ground between a true acupuncture needle and a traditional polished tattoo needle.
