A wonderful lady showed me a trick a few years back where you use liquid paper (white-out) to do your initial marking and then use a sharpie to go behind and connect the dots a few at a time as you wipe off the gel (we also used an alcohol swab before marking also to remove skin oil so ink sticks better).  The white-out seems to sink through the gel and dries to the skin. 

 

Have a good one all.

P.S.  To my favorite boss, thanks for this and all of the other stuff you taught me over the years.  You know who you are.  Love and miss ya. - T

Subject: Vein Mapping Markers

 

Can someone give me a preferred brand/type of marker for vein mapping (if any)?  I've always had pretty good luck with the Sharpie permanent.

 

Thanks,
