I have the same questions about multiple needle tools. Is there one you suggest or is there info in one of your books about making one for dimensional felting? The poking with a single needle thing is what takes so very much time, there are lots of moments when I thought it would be handy to have more than one needle in my hand. I saw a tattoo needle like that actually. Ok, that was scary though, and motivation to Not stab yourself on accident when felting too I guess! Cheesy

heheh....felted tattoos *snort*

The tool I have instructions for (som..e..wh...ere...) is basically a wooden disc with a lip and holes drilled in it for the needles, and a screw going up to screw some kind of a wooden doodad (think end of a curtain rod type thingy) down onto the disc, so you can open and change out the needles.  Maybe an hours worth of work Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

I don't think so...unless you where using some sort of inert material.  Such a chance of infection *shudder*.  But the traditional form of tattooing with a needle and a stick is very close to felting.  The ink is on the surface and it gets pushed in.  Now the needles inject ink under the skin...or at least that is how I understand it Grin
