I use a pencil rig too, and have always been happy with it. Its tedious and fun!
I start w a 3rl to do the first lines, then go over it with a 9rl to darken and thicken it up.
In my experience to get them to come out good you just need the patience to go over the lines a dozen and a half times to get a bunch of ink in your skin.
Cant speak to what ink I used as I havent done any for a few years, usually just go to a tattoo supply shop and buy a little 2 oz bottle.
If you want to up your game, I would look into buying a cheap gun to get better lines.
Lastly, lots of pics in that thread @SlankyLanky linked for you. We showed you ours, now you show us yours. :)

I thought this might be youuuuu.....

Daddy-O @Brodiesel710 Daddy? No way on earth he'd have a NO RUGRATS tattoo!

Of course not! Just the Phoenix Suns logo, a frowning alien, galloping poodles, eye glasses, some weird monster lookin pizza slice things I drew when I was a kid, and lightning bolts that are totally not white sepremecist, I swear.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
