I got the rotating head with the ear release from Caprine Supply. One side is your farm letters, the other the birth numbers. "M" for this year. It comes with numbers, you have to order the letters separately. For the ink, get the green paste (comes in a tube, like a small tube of green toothpaste.)

Get two sets! SO much easier to not have to change it all over for the second ear.

Get a smaller set for lamanchas, and don't get the one with the ear release.
Since you really do not want to use alcohol to get rid of the oils etc. on a Lamancha tail web, clean the area really well with baby wipes, the ones that are unscented and non oily. Then wipe area with plain water and dry with a paper towel. Then do the tattoo and rub that ink in well.
