Points to consider when buying a tattoo power supply

Every artist loves his art and a tattoo artist is no different from other artists. In order to ensure their artwork comes out best, they have to carefully pick their tattoo equipments. There is no doubt that only a good quality tattoo machine can produce impactful work and hence, one cannot afford to be casual about it. But, apart from a tattoo machine, a good tattoo power supply is also very essential as only this can enhance the performance of a tattoo machine. How to select? A tattoo power supply which can produce higher voltage makes an apt choice for your machine. So, before finalizing just anything, do pay attention to the voltage efficiency. However, choose only that range of voltage level which you can handle well. On market, you will come across two choices in power supplies such as digital and analog. Digital tattoo power supplies are expensive compared to analog choices; but digital ones are considered to be more useful than the latter. When you shop for a tattoo power supply, make sure to check if it is compatible with your tattoo machines. The reason behind this is that some power supplies support coil tattoo machines, some rotary and some are suitable for every type. As most tattoo artists work with both types of machines, it will be better to choose such supplies which are compatible with all of them. Another thing is pay attention to the size and weight factors while purchasing a tattoo power supply. If you have to travel a lot for your work, then it’s better to go with something light weight and small because it will ensure portability. Also, different power supplies come at different prices. Therefore, before picking up anything, make sure that you have checked its price well. In fact, it will be wise to compare prices in advance so that you don’t have to face any confusion later on. Since tattoo power supply items are very crucial, you cannot afford to buy them without checking all the specifications. The ones which can adapt better to voltage fluctuations giving more power to your tattoo machine make an ideal choice. So, be careful with your choice because your customers would not expect anything less than the best from you.

Necessary to Know about Tattoo Kits and Supplies

Tattoo kits are a splendid way to prepare for your first tattooing experience. From beginner’s kits to professional kits, there are plenty of different varieties available in the market lately. A common mistake most of the people do is to search for a provider selling tattoo supplies and purchasing a machine, power supply, and a few needles. However, once after it, they soon will realize that there are pretty much more things required for successful tattooing. It is not just the novices, by many professional tattooing experts also tend to make some mistakes like this. In case of choosing tattooing as your career, it is best to discuss the needs with a competent tattoo supplies company who can recommend you the tools and accessories needed in the tattoo kits for a professional endeavor. Things to consider On purchasing a tattoo kit, even at basic level, you need to check for a good kit, which contains all the needed safety and medical supplies in it. You may need nitrile gloves and the sharps collector, which will collect the tattoo needles and grips for proper disposal. There should also be a surface disinfectant as Cavicide, which is a high-grade cleaner to avoid hepatitis, TB, HIV and herpes. Also note that many of the now available tattoo kits are selling the inferior OEM brand inks, which is of very cheap quality. Always choose the best quality inks, not just to enhance the quality of tattooing, but also in the best interest of the health of your clients. Steel tattoo grips vs. disposable grips The very important aspect to be considered while purchasing tattoo kits is about the grip you are going to use. There is an increasing demand for disposable grips and single-use tattooing needles, in order to cut off the risk of cross-contamination among the users. There are advantages of disadvantages for both steel and disposable grips. Steel grips offer a better balance, cost effectiveness with reusability, and more importantly vibration dampening. As the downside, you have to always take care of the risk of contamination with thoroughly soaking and sterilizing (autoclave) the device. Convenience and safety are the major advantages of disposable grips; however you have to cope up with the vibrations a bit to do the task skillfully. However, disposable is always preferable over the other nowadays.

 Tattoo machine debugging skills

 A tattoo machine to get his hand , allowing us to adjust only the following aspects : location before shrapnel, the shrapnel, the spacing, contact screws, damping ring , coil , rubber bands , the armature . The coil, core , racks , capacitors basically we are not moving .  All adjustments are around two factors - the frequency and strength , I will be one of the law in the following 11 years.  Former shrapnel : length width thickness hardness and bending angle will affect the frequency and strength of the machine. Long , narrow , thin, soft , low bending angle will make the machine slow frequency , power becomes larger. Conversely frequency becomes faster , smaller forces .  Damping ring : the thickness of hard and soft , fine , let the soft slow frequency , strength increases. And vice versa. In fact, damping ring is extended before shrapnel , shrapnel can even do a good pre- damping ring, as the power play before the shrapnel to the maximum , maximum strength .  Contact Screw: The closer the position of the contact point of the front edge of the tab , the slower the frequency , the greater the force, and vice versa. Contact screw presses more tightly force smaller , faster frequency . Suggested contacts screws as far forward , touch shrapnel , at most, one or two laps and then the next spin , so shrapnel maximize its power .  After shrapnel : width hardness and bending angle will affect the machine's frequency , strength and length of the needle . Narrow , thin, soft frequencies will allow the machine slows down , the power increases. Conversely frequency becomes faster , smaller forces . The larger the longer the bending angle needle , the greater the power of the machine , the slower the frequency, and vice versa.  After the pitch : refers to the machine from the back seat and armature , in fact, this distance is the length of shrapnel after the change can be achieved in several ways , adjust the length of the armature size platen after shrapnel , shrapnel forward after these three who can change the spacing. The larger the greater the strength of the pitch , the slower the frequency, and vice versa.  Location coil : Front coil ( the coil close to the needle ) the greater the force more forward , the greater the distance the greater the force between the front and rear coil . As far forward before recommending coil , the coil do not move.  Armature : armature material , the length of the severity , the armature is longer, the more severe the greater the force , the slower frequency. I only know the material aspects temporarily better off magnetic armature better.  Rubber band : as little as possible , as long as you can control the beating of the needle , the right way to reduce needle loaded needle beating , so only twelve rubber band can be.  Under normal circumstances stab color , totem need big machine power , frequency, slow , black and white sketches thorn traditional and machine power needs of small , fast frequency.

Tattoo handle what to pay attention

Hold the machine correctly tattoo machine can improve the efficiency of the work . All needles mouth, handle and stainless steel rod should be all stainless steel handles are complete and have knurled . Knurled is a term machining industry , there should be on the handle . Knurled metal handle better than the plastic handle , when the handle grip plastic -type hand seems to be stuck , like the hand can not be flexible manipulation of the machine. Knurled metal provides a fixed grip strength, increased weight of the machine, the machine in the hands of more texture , more easy to operate.     Tattoo machine grip it like a pencil or pen grip posture , but slightly different.     When you first hold the tattoo machine, will feel he has a certain weight, some people say they are very heavy . Do not be confused by this argument , because the period of time you will feel very natural , hand muscles will gradually adapt to the machine work. Tattoo takes time, especially in large pieces tattoo , need a few hours to manipulate these machines do not have much time to rest. This requires that you exercise the muscles of the hand , so that the hand will not cramp or soreness . Before you start to become a tattoo artist , it is necessary to practice as much grip the machine. Hold the machine simultaneously trying to keep the air exercises. You can watch TV , chat or do something else to make this exercise. Night a few hours of exercise will make your hands soon muscles.     Some tattooists like heavy machinery , while others prefer a more light , which is the reason why some manufacturers offer lightweight machine . But it should be remembered that any machine , regardless of one began to feel there are multiple , are accustomed to the last . From a long-term perspective, you want to feel it's very handy , working condition is very stable. Tattoo machine vibration will occur when you use you will soon feel tired. Then the weight of the machine will usually act as shock absorbers. Handle more weight, it will absorb more energy , delivered to your shake smaller. Such tattoo machine work more stable, not easily shake , which is constructed tattoo machine is more wonderful place . You should also keep in mind is based on the weight of the machine is that you can change your preferences by replacing the handle of the model can change the weight of the tattoo machine .     Hold the machine and use the hook wires to practice painting. When the hook wires hanging behind the machine , tattoo machine will bring the resistance movement , which is different from the strange feeling to write . To get used to this feeling and often practice for this position .     Tattoos on the skin when the hand , like writing the same posture as the handle grip to hold a pen , the other part of the machine is naturally behind or above . Hand on the base of the skin or work , which is a stable position , palm down first , then the machine can be a palm support points.     As a fulcrum , the machine moves around on the skin with the palm . By rotating the fulcrum on the palm , it is easy to position the machine should be on . Sometimes rub some medical Vaseline on the little finger on the palm of your hand and will lead to friction between the palm of your hand with the skin decreases . Doing so will make your palms on the skin to move more easily. Do not apply too much attention is caused by slipping and sliding .     The fulcrum for the tattoo palm provides a solid foundation , but it takes practice to perfection , his hand will remain stable , credible route to you .     Disinfected prior to handle system , with a clean paper to wrap the assembled machine . This process before each tattoo ( disinfection, install the needle tip , needle and machine ) have to do . In China , we now use tattoo needles are all disposable.  The key is to be absolutely familiar with the correct installation process , each time the system is installed and the handle of the needle should concentrate. From tattoo equipment dealer to buy a new machine should be installed correctly , but the system did not handle disinfection . They still need to dismantle and disinfection. They should carefully review and learn the correct way to install the machine . Buy two machines at the start is a good idea , so that one can be installed by the manufacturer , you do not need to install another good . When you forget how to assemble them together, that Taiwan has been installed yet another machine is a good guide .

What size tattoo needle do you use for shading

Tattoo artists may have a preference when it comes to shading tattoo needles. Some may use a round shading needle setup. The most common tip counts used for round shading clusters are 3, 5, 7, and 9. Magnum shading needles are the most common for this application due to the double-stacked construction and flat tips. Using a magnum shading tattoo needle configuration allows the artist to put more ink into the skin without needing multiple passes over the same area of the skin. A variation of the magnum needle is the curved magnum tattoo needle. It is generally used for first timers as the curve causes less tearing to the skin and glides over it in a smoother fashion reducing the pain of getting a tattoo. Selecting the right type of shading tattoo needle makes the dispersion of the ink appropriate for the shading technique used.

About tattoo needles types, which do what, how to use

The diameter of tattoo needle types can be found by looking at the first two numbers of the packaging. The 4 most common diameters are #12, #10, #8 and #6. #12 is a diameter of 0.35mm. #10 is a diameter of 0.30mm. #8 is a diameter of 0.25mm. #6 is a diameter of 0.20mm. #12, 0.35mm diameter is the most common diameter for most needles. #10, 0.30mm is the most common diameter for ones used for lining.
The count indicates the number of needles grouped together at the point of the bar. In the example we used earlier, a 1207RL needle, where 12 is the diameter, 7 indicates the count. So a 1207RL needle will have 7 needles soldered to the tip of the bar.
Tattoo needles types: RL or round liner needles grouped together in a tight round formation. RS or round shaders are grouped together in a loose round formation. F or flats are grouped together in a line formation. M1 or weaved magnum are grouped with 2 rows of needles in a weaved formation

How to use tattoo transfer paper

If you're going to get a tattoo and have picked out the line drawing you want, you may be wondering how the artist transfers the drawing to your skin safely. Luckily, there's a very easy technique involving tattoo transfer paper that is safe and is pain free. Does this Spark an idea?

Notice that tattoo transfer paper has two distinct sides; one is shiny, the other is darker and not shiny. The dark, nonshiny side is the side to lay on the skin.
Trace each line of the picture with the sharp pencil, making sure that the paper doesn't move out of its position. You can tell which lines you have traced and which you haven't by looking at it from the side; you'll be able to see the pencil lines easily.
Dampen the skin where you want to place the tattoo with either soap and water or stick deodorant.
Place the thermographic transfer paper onto the dampened skin and press gently. Do not allow the paper to shift or the drawing won't transfer properly. If it does shift, you'll have to remove the ink and start over.
Peel the paper off the skin, gently. If done correctly, the line drawing is now on the skin in a bluish-purplish ink that will eventually wash off.
Check with your client again to make sure the drawing is in the correct location and is the correct size.

Choose the tattoo equipment and supplies for different level

There are often some beginners come to me and ask how long could he or she master the tattoo art. Actually the tattoo is a hard skill to learn and you should spend long time on it. But in the present, it is a easy thing to do and what you should do is input the energy and money to it. Of cause i am not saying that anyone could tattoo for others. Before you know how to tattoo, you also should pick up some tattoo equipment and supplies for yourself. And you also should know your skill level. Finally decide to buy what kind of tattoo equipment and supplies.
For the beginners there are some beginner tattoo kit in the present market, this equipment have all items you need to make a tattoo, such as tattoo machine, tattoo needles, tattoo ink and others. These things are necessary for the tattoo artist to complete tattoo work.There are even a few kits that come with a training DVD or book that most new artists find invaluable. While professional kits seem to have everything a tattoo artist needs, he or she is still responsible for buying their own supplies to sanitize their tattoo equipment between sessions.Because professional kits contain more tattooing tools than their beginner tattoo kit , the cost is undoubtedly more expensive.
When it comes to tattoo supplies, you must prepare some in stock for the case of you use up the tattoo ink or the tattoo needles. Because someone would like to use the disposable tattoo needle according to customers’ demand. After all during the tattoo process, the tattoo needle must pierce into skin to inject tattoo ink. For the sake of safety, tattoo artist prefer the disposable tattoo needle and throw them after use. So it dose not take long time to running out of it. You should prepare some tattoo supplies in advance. Do not you want to reuse the tattoo needle just because of lacking of it. And i think you do not want to make fun on the safety of the customers. Of cause the tattoo ink is also a kind of fast-moving consumer good, especially when you should create a big tattoo images for the clients. And the black is the most possible one to use up. All you know that the first step to tattoo is outline the images use the tattoo ink, and the black is the mostly common used one.
I just want to give some suggestion to the friends who want to enter the tattoo or who has entered. And i know some beginners must have different problems and questions at the beginning of the tattoo. Maybe this article really offer you some help.

Prepare tattoo equipment and supplies for your tattoo career

You must heard such an old saying that “Make bricks without straw”, that means that even you have the perfect tattoo skills, but if you there is no tattoo equipment so you can not work. I just want to emphasis the importance of the tattoo equipment and supplies. Maybe some one have bought the best tattoo equipment after the strict and careful research or the long time use. There are still some people do not know how to choose and prepare them for their tattoo career in the initial stage of the career.
The type of ink that you are going to use is going to have a huge impact on the final quality of the tattoo. The problem is trying to learn the best brands of ink to use is that every artist has a different opinion .The best thing you can do is talk to as many professionals as you can and to read a pile of reviews. You should start to see a pattern emerge. The other thing that you need to consider is that many professionals combine the inks of several different manufactures.
When you are ordering the needles you need for tattooing, you want to buy as many as you possibly can. You are going to go through a lot of needles and most companies offer discounts when you purchase the needles in bulk. You should never feel like you are purchasing too many needles, at some point you will need them.

You can not ink anyone until you have a tattoo power supply. The size of your power supply is going to depend on how much power your tattoo gun is going to use. The best way to make sure that the two are compatible is by purchasing them at the same time.

Rotary tattoo machine:the best suit for starter

In recent years, tattoo has become a hot topic for people,especially teenagers. And People have changed the traditional perception of tattoos that it is a symbol of gangsterdom. It is widely believed that tattoo is a fashion trend. So more and more choose tattoo as their career to make a fortune. Tattoo not only need skilled technology but also good equipment, which i mean is tattoo machine. In my several years experience, i would like to recommend the starter rotary tattoo machine.

There is no doubt that tattoo is a time-consuming work, when the tattoo design is very big tattooist usually spend several hours to complete a work. That means that the weight of the tattoo machine is important for the tattooist. However ,rotary tattoo machine have a lighter weight to handle for a long time tattoo image. In that case your hand won’t get hurt owing to its convenience. But before this i ever used a coil tattoo machine .every time after work my hand is cramping from the weight of the machine and it still feels as if my hand is vibrating when I'm done. Because of this, the weight and low vibration of the rotary machine caught my interest.

In addition, rotary tattoo machine cause less noise comparing with other tattoo machine, it is another advantages of the rotary tattoo machine. So when the tattooist tattooing the customers feel more relieved and less pain due to its low noise. I think maybe no one want tattooist use the loud machines work on their skins.
I think what the starters care most is the price of the rotary tattoo machine. Actually they have no much difference in price. So you should not care such a good rotary tattoo machine is beyond your financial range.

What size tattoo needle do you use for outline

on average a three is used unless you are doing portraits and then id stick to a one. for larger projects a 5 is okay always make sure you are using a round liner for outlines.
I disagree a 3 liner is best for small details. Most novices start of with small tattoo needles just due to being misinformed. When i started i used 5 round tapers and i always found myself going back over lines. in my opinion and what I use know are 7 round liners they lay down a nice semi-bold line that is just right. if you need to accentuate a line a bolder just do your fills with the same tattoo needle. My art improved ten-fold when I switched from a 5 to a 7. point is too they hold more ink too. The trick to good lining is holding your machine upright to the skin , go slow and do as much of your line as comfortably possibly. maintain your confidence.

I agree with the second poster. I am a tattoo artist who never did an apprenticeship anywhere. Just bought a machine from an artist friend of mine and starting plugging away on Pig skin. Lining is the MOST important part of a tattoo. Without a solid outline, there is no reason to color, shade or fill. So get a good line. Make sure your liner machine is well tuned, running well, and not misfiring. Next choose a 7 round or even higher if you are doing large work without alot of details. Then GO SLOW. Remember the machine moves fast, but you cannot move faster or you will end up with a dotted line. Tattoos hurt, don't try to be the nice guy and compromise your work to keep the client comfortable. Go as slow as you need to and allow the machine to do the work. Keep the ink flowing. Do not ever allow your liner to run out of ink. You will end up with line that you will have to go over again causing more pain and potential scar on the tattoo. And lastly, practice. If you are new to tattooing, do NOT try your skill out of a human until you have a handle on how the machine works, etc. Buy some grape fruits, honey dew melons, pig skin (from a butcher) etc and start to practice. The practice skins on eBay are garbage. They do not accept ink nearly the same way as real skin and you will end up frustrated. Plus there are very few places on the human body where you will be working on a "flat" surface so why practice on one? Good luck!
