I'm pretty sure the width of your lines is more about technique than equipment.

I've seen some pretty thick lines cut with a thin scalpel.  It's something about the angle of the blade when you cut the skin... A scarification artist explained it to me once, but I can't really explain it myself.

Indeed. The point isn't having a thicker blade, but how you sculpt your lines. :) Yes, you will have to go back through to widen lines and make lines straight and consistent. You don't do just single passes...and also, that just sounds extremely painful! Haha.

I was thinking of that but i find it really hard to dmage my own body. i couldn't pierce my ear lol. Maybe next time i will get a scalpal and practice getting thicker consistant lines with multiple cuts. I'm alot more calm with the whole procedure now lol
