Not something many of us will come across in our everyday life. But it's still intriguing to see how this machine manages to create works of art we either love or loathe.

THE BROKEN PUPPET is a new one for me, looks might fine !!!
Jeff Schuler (4 years ago)
+Sammy Russell hey mate , you dont need a good word but you can tell em Jeff sent ya! Mike works from the start of the frame with heat treating and tender loving care, he builds because its fun he makes vids with no ego, hes just a straight up guy. no numbers on his work like number 147 made by sincity tattooz. what your paying for is time. materials are not a cost when you have the tools to form them the way they should be. theres heaps of tattooist putting videos out that want to make you a machine. look on ebay their fools. it starts with a proper frame and coils. springs to suits the frame and coils, capacitor,,, ect and proper wiring so the frame doesnt magnetize. you can pay 195$ for packer that is only built to last til it gets a nice review and they delete you from their facebook if you want. look out for fakes and listen to reviews. cheers,jeff

Thanks For Posting ! Awesome Video ! undergroundde demagrafix has a cool one as well on how a tattoo machine works: Beginning Liner Shader Tattoo Machine. As for the question regarding rotary tattoo machines. Any rotary motor video will work. Same motors used in hair clippers , Remote Control cars. Bill
