WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?


SAY YOU BOUGHT A CAR... BRAND NEW. WOULD YOU DRIVE IT INTO THE GROUND AND NOT CARE ABOUT THE WEAR ON IT'S TIRES, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, MECHANICAL SYSTEM? OR WOULD YOU MAINTAIN IT WITH REGULAR MAINTENANCE WHENEVER NECESSARY WITH OIL CHANGES, SPARK PLUG AND WIRE CHANGES, CHECK FLUIDS... ETC. SO THAT IT WILL GIVE YOU YEARS OF LOYAL SERVICE? 

HOPEFULLY THE LATTER... IN TATTOO MACHINES, THE SAME APPLIES. IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IN THIS IGNORANT INDUSTRY, THE MACHINE IS THE LAST THING PEOPLE WORRY ABOUT. FIRST IS THEIR IMAGE, SECOND - THEIR EGO, THIRD - "THEIR" DRAWING STYLE, THIRD - MAKING MONEY... SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE, THE CLIENT FITS IN, HEALTH AND SAFETY COMPLIANCE AND MAYBE, THEIR MACHINES. THAT IS WHY PEOPLE COMPLAIN. BECAUSE THEY ARE INCAPABLE TO DO ANYTHING THEMSELVES ABOUT ANYTHING. IT'S A SAD STATE TO CONSIDER YOURSELF A PROFESSIONAL AND NOT KNOW HOW TO DIAGNOSE A SIMPLE MALFUNCTION OR PERFORMANCE GLITCH IN YOUR MAIN TOOL!!!

THE TATTOO MACHINE IS THE MAIN TOOL OF THE TRADE. IT IS THE CATALYST BETWEEN CREATIVE MENTAL GENIUS AND IT'S TRANSITION INTO PERMANENT PIECE OF TATTOOED ART . IF YOUR TOOLS ARE NOT TUNED, HOW DO YOU EXPECT TO TRANSLATE YOUR ARTWORK INTO A FINAL TATTOO PRODUCT? THE MACHINE'S PERFORMANCE DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE CLIENT - THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF THIS PUZZLE. IT'S HIS DEMAND FOR TATTOOING WHICH KEEPS ALL OF US IN BUSINESS. WE OWE HIM THE BEST WE CAN GIVE HIM./HER.

 

WE OFTEN GET EMAILS FROM ARTISTS ABOUT THEIR MACHINES 'HEATING UP'.. AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHY... SIMPLE., THEY DON'T MAINTAIN THEIR MACHINES.
A SIMPLE NAIL FILE CAN TAKE THE BUILT UP CARBON OFF THE CONTACT SCREW. THIS WILL ALLOW CURRENT TO FLOW WITHOUT HINDERANCE. USING ONE RUBBER BAND WILL PUT LESS STRESS ON THE REAR SPRING AND ALLOW THE COILS TO PULL THE ARMATURE BAR DOWN WITH LESS RESISTANCE.  STAINLESS STEEL TIPS ALLOW THE NEEDLES TO SLIDE EFFORTLESSLY AS COMPARED A LESS FRICTION RESISTANT PLASTIC TIP - THESE IN EFFECT TURN STICKY AND SLOW DOWN THE MOVEMENT OF THE NEEDLE GROUPINGS. ADDING A DROP OF WATER TO COLORS WHICH HARDEN WILL RETARD THE HARDENING OF THE INK INSIDE THE TIP OF THE TUBE AND KEEP THE MOVEMENT CONSISTENT. ALSO CONSIDER A FINER PIN, WITH A LONGER TAPER. A SHORTER BLUNT TAPER WILL BE HARDER TO  PENETRATE THE SKIN AS OPPOSED TO A LONG SHARP TAPER, THE MACHINE WILL WORK MORE EFFICIENTLY. THESE ARE SOME SIMPLE THINGS WHICH CAN BE DONE.


ANOTHER, IS TO TAKE THE SEMINAR WE OFFER. WE DO NOT TRY AND SELL OUR MACHINES, UNLIKE SOME OF THESE OTHER 'SEMINAR' GIVERS. WE TEACH A HIGHLY IN DEPTH COURSE WHICH IS GUARANTEED TO EDUCATE AND PRODUCE RESULTS. KNOWING THE MACHINE INSIDE AND OUT WILL FOREVER CHANGE THE WAY YOU TATTOO FOR THE BETTER. IT WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR TATTOO ARTIST COSTUME, IT WILL NOT INFLATE YOUR EGO... BUT IT WILL PUT YOUR VALUES IN LINE AND RAISE YOUR STANDARDS AND YOUR VALUE AS AN ARTIST, IT WILL BENEFIT THE CLIENT,  IT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM THE IGNORANT SUPPLIER WHO'S JOB IS ONLY TO SELL PRODUCTS, MOST OF WHICH HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT...  

THINK ABOUT IT... THEN TAKE ACTION.
