I always used the 42g German Forked Needle, I was told you wouldn't see any holes but I swore I did! Then I thought it was my rooting.... hmmmm..... maybe it is the needles After having a very large tumor in my bicep and it did so much damage to my shoulder, I can no longer root. I know a Master Artist & Rooting lady who used only the 1 barb needles.

I have tried the forked needles and hated them!!
I use 42G 1 barb and 3 barb...depending on the amount of hair I want on the head!!

I use ANYTHING that will work!!!
1, 2, 3 sometimes the 6 barb!!!
Forked never worked for me... and yes, I think it leaves a hole too!!!

I have switched so many times from ultra thin which at some point I was actually picking up hair.. Then I wasn't. I don't know if it is the hair or the needle or just me... I have switched now to a 38 crown 3 barb. Again I am having problems. I have used a forked needle. I don't like them..I am frustrated with it..
