Silencer Rotary Tattoo Machine
The Hildbrandt Silencer Shader Rotary features a 2mm bearing and is slightly slower running than its counterpart, the Beretta Liner, which is running a 1.75mm bearing.  Previous versions of this frame design based on the original Swiss Rotary usually featured variations of 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm and 4mm bearings.  Despite the wide selection of bearing sizes, most artists that have used this rotary frame design tended to always go back to the 2mm.  The reason being that the 2mm was the most well rounded, suitable for both lining and shading.  The larger you go, the less stable the machine, the smaller you go, the more likely the machine may cause the needle to snag the skin.  This is because even small variations in the diameter of the bearing resulted into big differences in the way the machine ran.  During the development of the 2nd version of the Beretta and Silencer, we wanted to maintain a difference in speed performance between the two models but did not want to overdo it.  So we created the 1.75mm bearing for the Beretta, this bearing is smaller by the 2mm just enough to increase the speed of the machine without taking away from its usability.

Beretta Rotary Tattoo Machine
The Hildbrandt Beretta Liner Rotary features a 1.75mm bearing and is slightly faster running than its counterpart, the Silencer Shader, which is running a 2mm bearing.

  2. Jason June 30, 2013 REPLY

    How do u put the tattoo light on the rotary machine?

    • newton July 4, 2013 REPLY

      Unfortunately the tattoo machine light is designed to be put on a coil machine more so than rotary machines. However with the Hildbrandt Silencer and Beretta you can put the alligator clip on one end of the clip cord connectors and the eyelet on the other and bend the light around.

  3. Jason July 1, 2013 REPLY

    In how many days make delivery of the kit

    • newton July 4, 2013 REPLY

      2-4 business days via USPS Priority to anywhere in the USA.

  4. Josh July 3, 2013 REPLY

    Are there any reviews on the machines in this kit? Also do they use the same needles as coil machines? Thank you

    • newton July 4, 2013 REPLY

      I am sure there must be reviews online as this is a Hildbrandt, yes the needles are the same as the ones used for coil machines.

  8. rickie bridgers November 17, 2013 REPLY

    does these two top of the line Silencer and Beretta Liner have any give or the bearing work with the give you need?

    • newton November 26, 2013 REPLY

      These rotaries do not have any give, this armature bar style rotary has traditionally not required give. The only thing that is necessary to adjust performance is the size of the bearing.

  9. Corey d December 6, 2013 REPLY

    Is the radiant color legit ink or that fake china bs.?

    • newton December 11, 2013 REPLY

      Radiant Colors tattoo ink is used in professional tattoo shops all over the United States and Canada and in many other countries as well.

  10. joey January 17, 2014 REPLY

    Do the machines in this kit come with a codified warranty certificate??

    • newton January 18, 2014 REPLY

      Yes all Hildbrandt equipment does

  11. Andrew Thompson January 18, 2014 REPLY

    I noticed in the clip for the training video that he was setting up on a coil machine. Is there a section on rotary machines as well? or is it the same for both types?

    • newton January 22, 2014 REPLY

      The rotary is actually quite similar to setup the needle and tube to the coil machines. In fact it is much simpler, so we did not create a 2nd video covering rotary machines as they are so straight forward and everything regarding there setup, if you know how to do it with coil machines, you’ll know how to do it with rotary.

  12. Cockney February 23, 2014 REPLY

    Is it possible to buy from Spain and how soon the product to Spain?

    • newton February 26, 2014 REPLY

      We can ship to Spain, however there have been some customers packages that are stopped by Spain customs. Apparently they have some restrictions on the tattoo ink and needles and therefore you should consult Spanish customs agency before you place your order to double check if there will be any problems to import. Also, there may be import taxes.


    estan disponibles ahora?.. cuanto es el shipping para miami? o es free..? cuando quiero dos productos me sale doble shipping no se puede enviar en uno solo.?

      El costo por este concepto es de $ 139.99 + $ 21 del envío a Miami. El total es de $ 160.99. Si usted compra más de un artículo, podemos combinar los gastos de envío. Sólo tiene que añadir otro elemento a la compra y agregará automáticamente el coste total.

  14. Dominique June 5, 2014 REPLY

    For a beginner, would it be better to buy a kit with coil machines or with rotary machines?

    • newton June 5, 2014 REPLY

      Coil machines allow for fine tuning of the way the machine runs and hits. This does require a bit of a learning curve. Rotary machines are generally plug and play without too much adjustments required, so it is far simpler to use. They both are capable of doing a fine tattoo.

  15. CHRISTOS June 10, 2014 REPLY

    Hi, I am very interested in this item but I live in Cyprus. I checked and currently shipping to my Country is not available. Can you ship it to Cyprus please?
    Thank you in advance.

    • newton June 11, 2014 REPLY

      Yes we can ship to Cyprus, I have edited the shipping settings, you can order now through our website.

  16. Arévalo June 12, 2014 REPLY

    i want this kit, the you guys have in stock right now? you guys send to México right? do you have an estimated time of arrival to this country?

    • newton June 14, 2014 REPLY

      Mexico customs requires an importer of tattoo equipment to have a medical license. If you do not have this license, you will not be able to receive, or at least encounter a lot of problems receiving your order. We urge customers from Mexico to clarify with Mexico customs first what kind of license/permit is required before they order from us. Problems that occur from a transaction where the customer did not have the proper documentation to receive their order are not our responsibility.

  17. Greg Dailey June 15, 2014 REPLY

    I was wondering how long your warranty is for the hildbrant two gun tattoo kit is? I recently bought a kit and the adjuster at the top does not work… Can I get just the one machine replaced or would it have to be the entire kit?

    • newton June 17, 2014 REPLY

      There is a 6 month warranty and from the sounds of it, if it is just the top adjuster it is simply a part that you need. Please contact support@tattoomachineequipment.com to provide your first and last name used for the transaction and provide a brief description of the problem you are having and our tech staff will take care of the rest.

  18. Dominique June 22, 2014 REPLY

    Are the wires, tubes, grips and needles the same for both coil and rotaries or are they different?

    • newton June 26, 2014 REPLY

      They are same and are interchangeable for both coil and rotaries.

  19. Alexa August 3, 2014 REPLY

  21. joel September 30, 2014 REPLY

    What’s easiest to use for poly tattooing?? Rotary or coil??!!

    • Nancy L. September 30, 2014 REPLY


      Thank you for your inquiry. To be honest, it is personal preference on rather the Coil machines are easier or the Rotary machines. The rotary machines are easy to use for they do not require any tuning or adjustments. You basically need to plug it into a power supply and it is ready to go. The rotary machines are lighter and quieter as well, if that helps your selection process.

      As for the coil machines, if you are use to the weight and like how it is heavier, as well as the tuning options of the machine, then the coil machines are more for you.

      So i do apologize i would not be able to provide one or the other as answer to your question. But i hope the description would help your selection.

      Thank you

  22. Ian October 4, 2014 REPLY


    I am wondering what the difference is between this kit(standard sized, I assume) and the mini rotary kit? Is it as simple as the physical size of the machines? This site does not clarify the difference, it even uses the exact same picture for both listings, making this very confusing! Thank you for your help.


    • Nancy L. October 6, 2014 REPLY


      Thank you for your inquiry. I do apologize for any confusion caused. The main difference in the two kits is the supplies that it comes with. The machines are the same. So for example, the Mini comes only with 35 needles in the kit, and the starter kit comes with 50 needles. As well, the starter kit comes with the Fundamental Tattoo Basics book, which includes a year of subscription to the tattoo Forum, and the mini does not come with that book or subscription.

      Those are the main two differences between the two kits.

      Thank you

  23. Juan Miguel October 9, 2014 REPLY

    I just just bought this kit and I wanted to know more details on the difference of these machines and the ones in the mini or regular kit. You say top of the line and more power! what exactly is that how mush what are The detail extrass!

    • Nancy L. October 10, 2014 REPLY


      Thank you for your inquiry. The main difference between the Mini kit and the starter kit is the equipment. Both kits do come with the same machines and power supply, but the quantity of equipment do differ. So for example, the Mini only comes with 35 needles, while the Starter kit comes with 50. The Mini only comes with the Tattoo Crash Course 101 book, and the Starter comes with the Fundamental Basics book with 1 year subscription to the most popular tattoo forum for learning.

      Thank you

    Hello, will shipping to Romania be possible for this kit and if so, can you please let me know how much will be? Thanks.

    • newton November 18, 2014 REPLY

      We would not recommend shipping to Romania unless you check with your countries customs agency to ensure it can be imported. We have had cases in the past where tattoo products were not allowed.

  25. Edi November 20, 2014 REPLY

    Can you ship this kit to Belgium? Can i order extra Practice Skin as well?

    • Nancy L. November 20, 2014 REPLY


      Thank you for your inquiry. We can certainly ship to Belgium for you. And we do sell extra practice skins under the tab “tattoo supplies” and then under the first heading “tattoo and stencil supplies”.

      Thank you

  26. jayson December 4, 2014 REPLY


    Im an artist and I have no experience in doing tattoo, I’m interested on buying this kit. my question is do this rotary machines produces good quality tattoos? and also can this machines last long?

    • Nancy L. December 4, 2014 REPLY


      Thank you for your inquiry. You have selected a professional kit, and it does come with professional grade equipment, including the machines. But how good the art turns out will not depend on the machine, but rather on the artist. Think of the machines as a pencil, rather you draw a good picture would not depend on what pencil you use, but how good you are at drawing.

      The machines are quality machines, and as long you take care of them, i have artists that have been using them for years without any issues.

      Thank you

  27. brownfoot December 23, 2014 REPLY

    Is the hit on the gun adjustable? i see some rotary machines have a spring like adjustment to help control depth

    • newton December 25, 2014 REPLY

      No, this machine does not have an adjustable hit

    Hi , I’m interested in the kit, do you ship it to Panamá



    • Nancy L. January 6, 2015 REPLY


      Thank you for your inquiry. We have shipped to Panama before but rarely, so we are unfamiliar with their import laws. So we would suggest before ordering, to contact Panama’s customs agency to inquire if what you are purchasing is allowed into the country.

      Thank you
