Rotary Tattoo Machines
When we first started out in 2004, Rotary tattoo machines just made their debut. They were first met with skepticism in the industry but that soon changed when artists discovered the potential of them. The very first pioneers in the rotary market were the early Stigma rotaries, the Swiss Stealth and Ink Machines Dragonfly. All of these builders developed a new kind of precision device that contested the dominance of the coil. Today, we have hundreds of builders that use differing variations of the original rotary designs developed by Stigma, Swiss and Ink Machines. Our brands for rotary machines include Stigma, Cheyenne, Helios, Hildbrandt, Sabre, Jack Steel, Dickie Golden, Diablo, Storm and Inkstar. Ranging from the high end of up to $900 for a Cheyenne to the entry level price of $20 for an Inkstar, whatever your budget is, we have you covered.
Tattoo Power Supply
Our various tattoo power supply units have increased in 2015 and we now offer many more brands and models. Our most advanced available is the Critical Tattoo Power Supply, these premium calibrated devices are said to be the best available on the market. Used by professional artists all over the world, Critical devices can be found in shops all over the industry. Our in house Hildbrandt units are designed for everyday usage, reliability and simplicity. On the entry level side, we have the Inkstar, which packs a punch for the price. Most of these power supply units are designed for the North American market and thus use 110V input, they range from as high as 6 amps for the Critical, 2-3 amps for the Hildbrandt's and 1.5 to 2 amps for the Inkstar's.
We offer a wide range of tattoo needles that will cover any job your doing. Sometimes when we have a whack of soon to expire lots, we will have tattoo needles for sale, so look for deals every now and then! When using any grouping, make sure you adjust the proper tattoo needle depth. As with most needles, you should always check the tips for imperfections and improper sterilization. Utilization of an eye loupe will help with this process. Always throw away suspected contamination, losing a few cents is better than the risk of infection!
We carry well recognized brands of tattoo inks and our selection of tattoo ink colors found in our tattoo ink shop is extensive. All of our ink is guaranteed to be authentic and this can be verified with the rights holders of the brands. We are official distributors for Starbrite, MOMs Tattoo Ink, Radiant Colors, Kuro Sumi, Dynamic, Talens, Black Pearl, UV Blacklight inks and more. We recommend all customers to be careful of the fake knockoffs of well known brands being sold on Ebay and other online avenues. For more information regarding knockoffs, please have a read of our blog, we published a long article in regards to contaminated ink a while back. In addition, we are always publishing more articles on this topic as it is a public health concern that affects all of us.
The Tattoo Store
For almost a decade now, Hildbrandt has established itself as the tattoo store for one stop shopping for all things related to the industry. We have been blessed with a strong customer base that includes professionals of the industry of thirty plus years and many talented new school artists that are making a name for themselves. Our dedication to great customer care and service has put our company in the fore front of this great industry. The tattoo store of the past is a part of history, so are the old school ways.
Tattoo Grips & Tubes
We stock all the tattoo grips and tubes for our needles. All of our disposable products come pre-sterilized with a proper expiry date. A lot of artists nowadays are going the disposable route as it is cost effective, easy and quick. The only other alternative is going with an autoclave and stainless steel. While this may save you money in the long run, the cost to get a proper autoclave is extremely expensive. This is why so many people are now going the disposable way. Be sure to check your packaging before you use any pre-sterilized item as this will indicate it may be contaminated. Every now and then packaging can be damaged during shipping so checking the seals are an important step to preventing contamination!
Tattoo Machine Parts
We offer a wide range of tattoo machine parts that will allow a wide range of custom options for your project. You can find any part you need including armature bar, springs, contact screws and other tattoo gun parts. Our threading for most of our screws are standard American threading of #8-32×1″, M4-.7. Our contact screws include a wide variety of metals like brass, stainless steel and silver. Our machine springs range from 0.18 to 0.20 gauge. All of our parts are designed to fit standard size frames and are interchangeable with many different builders and brands.
Tattoo Medical Supplies
Tattoo medical supplies are the core components of this industry and we carry only the best brands. We work hard to screen all potential tattoo medical supply vendors before we engage in any large scale purchase. This makes sense since the whole point of these products is to protect and keep clean, the vendor that sells them better be sure they will sanitize and sterilize as they should. We suggest using barrier methods if your workspace is not easy to sanitize. Examples of barrier methods would be clip cord covers, machine covers and barrier film. Always keep a steady supply of disinfecting wipes for on the go disinfection.
