Wrong! Use the standard to metric conversion when adjusting length. Remember:length times girth and don't forget to add in the yaw.

Laughing my ass off. You ask a question like this and want answered from something other than random people on the Internet but come to a new forum and ask random people haha. Anyways to answer your question. Every needle is different so you have to test it on your thumb to test depth. If it hurts really bad your too deep. Don't test with ink obviously or you'll have a black thumb.

No problem.

This just isn't a scratcher friendly forum. Learn the right way and everyone here will give you honest feedback.
