                                            We have been in this hand poke business for about 15 years. In the early years Hand Poke Sticks were sharpened Bamboo and that is why it is referred to as Thai Bamboo style tattoos. It was very painful and damaged the skin. It was used for many thousands of years at least 5000 years. As metal became available it slowly replaced the Bamboo stick. The stainless-steel sticks have gone through many designs. At first the rod or stick, whatever you want to call it, was sharpened at the tip. So, it could only do a single dot on one stroke in the skin just like the Bamboo stick. That’s why you would see the early days of Thai tattoos were done as dots in a line to make the tattoo design. To join the dots as they are today would take a long time with a single dot. Example below.

The next advance was to cut the end of the Bamboo style stainless steel sticks and make two prongs. This would double the amount of ink put into the skin.

Below is an example of that. These are old and classic sticks. I have not had a tattoo done with this double prong stick but I am sure this would have hurt.

Below is a full picture of the stick/rod. It is made from a single piece of Stainless Steel, as in the early days all masters would only do Thai Sak Yant tattoos in there Sam Nak, and that translates to tattoo office or temple. It did not mater the sticks are so long.

When we first got into this and started to do this, it was very important to get sterilization to the highest level as our customers were all westerners. Also, the stick had to fit in the auto clave. The next generation had to be from multiple pieces. As you can see from the picture below, we made the main stick from 3 pieces and the 4th piece is the tips.

Below is a packet of, 1000 loose needles. These loose needles are tied or glued to the stainless-steel tips. It was time consuming and not accurate.

Loose Tattoo Needles

Tattoo machines have multiple needles and that’s why they do good tattoos. So, we had to try and do the same. Below we developed a system where we had many needles. Watch the video below how we did it.
