All three types of tips could be: DIAMOND TIPS ROUND TIPS FLAT TIPS DIFFERNCE between ROUND and DIAMOND The difference is in the tips end; Round tips end is shaped as round form and diamond tips end is shaped almost like a small triangle. According to Eddie Tana, a blogger with a tattoo supply company, there is two points here: First, the diamond-end tips hold more ink. Second, they are more stable when tattooing with the needle placed at different angles. However, Ray Webb, author of "Tattoo Needle Primer", says that any stainless steel tip should only be used when tattooing solely in black. Couse the metal from the tips can discolor colored ink.
