Sunskin Tattoo Equipment – Web Site

Certainly, stainless steel needles are the only needles that should be used for tattooing — but not all stainless steel needles are foing to work well for tattooing. They could easily fix this, if they could measure and control the speed of their machines. The website does not appear to be up and running as I write this.

At a minimum it will encourage them to continue with a second issue. By making it run at maximum speed, we will learn what the limitations of each part of the machine are. Most tattooers have no idea what speed their machines run at.

Its high cost would be its only drawback. Some are using a liner for a shader, and some are trying to outline with a machine that should be a shader.

Carbon steel has a tendancy to rust very quickly — and would be exposed to liquids during the tattooing process. Post a comment or leave a trackback. Carbon plated needles are generally nickel or chrome plating over a carbon steel needle — not some kind of carbon plating on a needle. The Green Monster will break the Hz barrier.


What’s the difference between carbon steel needles and stainless steel needles? As far as getting the magazine, I’m told that this issue is basically all spoken for and has been mailed out to current Eikon customers — contact them for more information.

The Green Monster The planning stages of building the world’s fastest tattoo machine. Any typos in the above excerpts are mine. We’re not building this machine just to go fast.

Carbon steel is a softer metal than stainless steel and consequently easier to grind. As the plating starts to wear, it chips and separates from the needles.

No plated needle should ever be used to tattoo. Post a Comment Your email is never published nor shared. Speeds of to Hz are common for shaders, and speeds as high as Hz are used for liners. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. But not one that should be used for tattooing.

Very inexpensive, very low quality. If you’re trying to save money, don’t save it on needles, it’s only a few cents and will ultimately affect your work. Machine speed determines if a machine will work as a liner or shader. The process of tattooing causes some wear on the needles.

Shannon Larratt is Zentastic The best thing about censorship is it doesn’t work. So, a less expensive material that’s eaier to manufacture ends up a lass expensive product. Once we know that, we can figure out how to overcome these limitations, and engineer a better running machine… Anyway, Machinegun Magazine is published by Eikon and in theory has a website at machinegunmagazine.

I’ve never seen anything like it… Features include a wild project machine and reader’s machines which reminds me an awful lot of custom car magazines! The quality, or usability of a needle for tattooing cannot be judge solely by what the needle is made of.

Stainelss steel is a more expensive product, and very difficult to grind, especially at the diameters eion to the tolerances required to make a good needle for tattooing. I’ve also been hearing about carbon plated needles — what are they?

Once we know that, we can figure out how to overcome these limitations, and engineer a better running machine…. The profile and diameter of the needle will determine whether or not a needle kachine work well for tattooing.

The most important measurement that can be made on a machine is the speed that it runs at. A couple of excerpts:
