WARNING: This kit contains items that can be used to tattoo human skin.  This setup is designed for people to learn how to tattoo by practising on mediums like practice skin, pigs skin and thick skinned fruits.  Human skin is NOT a practising medium and tattoos are PERMANENT, so if you do not have any experience or qualifications to do skin work, DO NOT use the items in this kit to perform a tattoo.  If you are serious about becoming a professional tattoo artist, a proper apprenticeship with a professional tattoo studio is the time honoured way of becoming one.  This kit will not make you a professional tattoo artist overnight but it will give you the tools you need to learn and practice to become one.

Hildbrandt .44 Magnum

The .44 Magnum and its twin frame design, the .357 Magnum were standard issue on pre 2008 Hildbrandt Tattoo Supply kits. Versatile and lightweight machine that tunes well for lining. Factory setup as a 10 wrap liner, it is slow hitting and accurate just like the gun cartridge it was named after. Dirty Harry would love this one. Its twin frame design is the .357 Magnum

  • Comes setup as a liner
  • Strong steady strike with compact 10 wrap coils
  • Thermal insulated frame
  • Extremely smooth running
  • Small size – 3.5 inch x 3.5 inch
  • A light and well balanced tattoo machine

Hildbrandt .38 Calibre

Our .38 Calibre has been living in the shadow of its twin frame design, the popular chromed frame .444 Marlin. The .38 Calibre is one of the standard tattoo machines that come with the Hildbrandt Tattoo Supply kits. Factory setup as an 8 wrap shader, meant for quick shading.

  • Comes setup as a shader
  • Strong steady strike with compact 8 wrap coils
  • Thermal insulated frame
  • Extremely smooth running
  • Small size – 3.5 inch x 3.5 inch
  • A light and well balanced tattoo machine

Hildbrandt Beretta Rotary Shader

The Beretta rotary comes with a 2mm bearing installed.  It is better suited for shading than its counterpart, the Silencer, which is for lining.  Previous versions of this popular 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.

Hildbrandt Silencer Rotary Liner

The Silencer rotary has a 1.50mm bearing and is slightly faster running than its counterpart, the Beretta Shader, which is running a 2mm bearing.  The Silencer is better suited for lining due to its smaller motor bearing allowing the machine to run faster.

Hildbrandt Afterlife Power Supply, run 2 machines off one powerful multi functional digital power supply. Output of 1.5V-18V, 2 AMP.  This power unit features multiple session settings, touch screen, multiple liner/shader settings, session timer, duty cycle reading and more.

Tattoo Equipment & Supplies Crash Course 101 is a comprehensive instruction guide to all of the equipment and components that come with this kit.  The guide explains how to set up the equipment, gives you tips on techniques and gives advice on what supplies you may need later on.

Rugged Professional Convention Carrying Case. Rugged touring carrying case with ample room for everything you need in there. Comes in either black or silver.

RCA Conversion Kit, mounts on tattoo machine and converts the machine to be able to use an RCA cord

Radiant Colors 1/2 oz 7 Primary Set. Premium inks that fly right into the skin. 7 colors: Scarlett Red, Lemon Yellow, Medium Green, Navy Blue, Dark Brown, Tribal Black and Super White. Radiant Colors tattoo ink meet the standards of Health Canada’s Cosmetics Regulations.

Pre-sterilized Blister packed Tube Grips & Tubes. 30 in total, 2-3 for every needle type in the kit.  Each one is sterilized with indicator strip, these strips satisfy the sterilization requirements of certain state health codes (the ones that have them that is).  Save these for skin work as they are pre-sterilized.

7 stainless steel tubes, 1 for each needle type. Practice with these. To sterilize, you will need an autoclave. Picture is not accurate on tips you will receive.

    Im going to order this for my son who is an tattoo artist

    • rob

      this a good setup, I have this. The customer service here with Richard is second to none.

  2. manny

    i would like to know if you can ship to the philippines and the united arab emirates

    • newton

      Yes we can ship to both those locations. However, you will need to contact [email protected] to check the shipping costs for United Arab Emirates as shipping costs to there must be calculated.

      • Casey

        I’ve recently have been giving a lot of thought to tattooing for a hobby. Want a really good start up kit that has above avg equipment . Which one would you recommend and what’s the best way to learn the trade ?

        • Nancy L.


          Thank you for your inquiry. We do have two house hold brands that are tailored to different stage of the art for customers looking to either learn the art or use the kit for professional use. So if you are looking for a kit where you can learn and practice on, we strongly suggest our Inkstar Kits, for they are tailored made to provide you with many hours of practice material.

          But if you are in advance stage of learning and would like a kit that you will be able to use on yourself or others, then any of our Hildbrandt kits will suit your need. So the one you selected with this question for example, is the best kit we offer. And if you are looking for quality material and will be tattoo humans instead of practice skins, then this kit would be your best bet.

          Thank you

      • Corvus

        Hi – Is shipping to (Namibia) possible and how can I be sure that I will receive the goods intact and in a good condition.Is there any guarantee?

        • Nancy L.


          Thank you for your inquiry. I do apologize due to a large amount of our package shipped to Namibia has gotten lost due to customs confiscation and thief, we no longer ship there.

          Sorry about that
          Thank you

        • Anthony

          I was actually looking for the review section, as I bought the pro kit. The machines are definitely of good quality, although I took the coils and springs off of the frame and replaced it with iron frames. I was a bit confused when I opened it and there was a ball of black gloves that were not packaged, and unusable on humans, and you may want to rethink putting them in the kit so people dont think you can use them in the tattoo process. Secondly before you use any metal parts in the kit AUTOCLAVE THEM. Also, in the case I was expecting a place to put the machines as so they don’t get bumped around. The book was great, but the teach me to tattoo website was lacking and also was the video that came with the kit. All in all I would recommend this for a starter above any other kit out there. Just remember, customization is key to becoming a great artist, and finding your style of tattooing. Get some parts, experiment with coils springs and different tuning, and always keep learning.

  3. jan

    i would like to buy this kit via western union.. pls help..

    • newton

  4. penn

    Would you be able to ship to Guam? I would really like to order this in time for christmas..

    • newton

      Yes we can ship to Guam, please contact our [email protected] for quicker responses for shipping and costs.

  5. DM

    Please excuse my ignorance. Does one need to purchase an autoclave to go with this kit in order to clean the machines or is needle disposal sufficient?

    • newton

      If you want to do it the old school method, yes autoclave is the way to go. However, there are many new barrier methods like tattoo machine bags, clip cord covers, wash bottle covers, etc.. that when applied properly to your equipment will keep your workspace clean and sterile just as good as autoclaved equipment. The key here is to sterilize the outside of the barrier method so that you do not have to go through the pain staking task of autoclaving everything.

  6. karp

    Is it possible to substitute inks? I would pay the difference, cheers!

    • newton

      Sorry but the kits are pre-packaged and we cannot substitute the inks.

  7. Cory

    I’m looking to upgrade and was trying to find some reviews about this kit. I can’t really find any, if you could just give me more information about it that’d be cool.

  8. Alfredo Guzman

  13. Rock

    Hola, me gustaría comprar este Kit, es posible que lo envien a México? y otra cosa, el personal de soporte habla español?
    Saludos y Gracias

    • newton

      Sorry we do not understand Spanish however from our online translation service it appears you are requesting shipping information for Mexico. We can ship our products to Mexico, however please note that Mexico customs requires an importer of tattoo equipment to have a special medical license in order to import these products. We have encountered problems with shipments going to Mexico for customers that do not have this license. If you do not have this, 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. We will not be responsible for any problems that occur from a transaction where the customer did not have the proper documentation to receive their order.

  14. Armando

We can only accept Western Union wire transfer or bank transfer from South Africa due to security concerns over credit cards from that region.

  15. Armando

    good day sir! i just want to inquire about shipping here in saudi arabia…have you encountered any problems shipping tattoo supplies here?if all will be fine i’d like to order some tattoo kits…please enlighten me…i would love to hear from you soon..thanks

    • newton

      We have shipped to Saudi Arabia in the past, some shipments get through with no problem but some get stopped by customs so if you would like to be safe, I would check with your countries customs agency if there are restrictions to tattoo supplies and if you will require any additional paperwork to get it through customs.

      • magicnoypi

        thanks for answering to my query…i am in riyadh specifically.if the customs would hold the items,is it possible to get them back or at least have them shipped back to you? i would be glad if you could check the customs regulation in here so i could order my first kit with you if all will be fine and safe…thanks again! 🙂

  25. Clement

    Hellow I would like to order ship kits I’m here in R.S.A. At Durban City so how long does it take to be here around R.S.A. And how do I order? How much is the total amount I have to pay?

    • newton

      We normally do not ship to South Africa unfortunately, however, if you pay by Western Union we can. Credit cards are not accepted for orders en route to any part of Africa due to the high level of fraud we received in the past. The shipping cost is quite high as well, expect $70-$120 depending on which kit you are ordering (due to weight). Shipping via UPS takes 3-5 business days.

  26. Pete

    Hi, what is the total weight of this kit?

  30. Marie

    Good Afternoon. I would like to buy the Hildbrandt Professional Tattoo Kit System but I can’t find the shipping option to UK. Also I really like to change the machines with another one you have in the list (Popeye Machine). Is it possible? If not, there is a kit with all the things you need without the machines so I can buy them separately. Thank you in advance for your help. Regards, Marie

    • newton

      Hello, you should be able to get the shipping option to the UK now. Please just choose it among the countries in the drop down menu in the checkout cart. As for changing the machines, because the Popeye machine is not the same price point as the Hildbrandt machines, we would not be able to swap it as the same. You can trade for a same or lesser value machine though.

  31. Kacy

    is this kit suitable to use on people?
    Thank you 🙂

    • newton

      Yes all of our tattoo equipment is suitable for skin work.

  32. c.mauger

Shipping to Greece will take 7-12 business days.

  36. Hiding

    I am looking to purchase this item come the end of November. I stay in the uk and was wondering if it would be delivered to me by Christmas time? Thanks

    • newton

      It takes 7-12 business days to reach the UK using USPS International Priority, I would say if you ordered it before Dec 3rd, you would be okay. This is provided no delays occur due to the holiday season shipping.

  37. john

    • newton

      We have been trying to contact you via the phone number you provided us. Your billing address does not match your shipping address and also it does not match the billing address of the credit card you used and therefore we need further verification from you before we can ship you order. Please call us 1-888-944-8441 to verify your information to prevent further delay for your order.

  39. Cat Ann

    Hi, I am planning on starting an apprentice soon and I plan to buy this kit as a beginning start up so I have a general idea with what to work with. I was wondering, is there anything else besides items in this kit that I should look to buy, please understand that I am not made out of money, I know over time I will definitely need to get more things once things do start to run out. I am just asking if there is anything that you would suggest being mandatory?

    • newton

      You will likely need more ink, needles and tubes in the long run. This also depends on your mentor’s teaching method so I wouldn’t be able to tell you about how to anticipate that. The most obvious are going to be needles, tubes, ink, sterilization supplies and ink cups.

  40. Isaac

    Hi there,
    I noticed that sometimes you sell kits without the textbook. Can I order this kit without the textbook? I already own it.


  41. Joshua

    Very nice kit machines and everything is perfect yall are the best

  42. Martin

    Professional feeling machines had some issues with original power supply couple of emails and had a new one on the way Nancy is awesome wish they would make a new introduction dvd the one with the kit sucks also I really wish they would put nipple grommets instead of the donuts and maybe a couple of various springs for tuning also note all three machines run 22 uf caps so for a slow soft shader may need to change to a 47 or 33 uf to slow it down the 38 calibre makes an awesome color packer though

  43. Ricardo Tadeu

    Hi, I would like to know how I can buy this kit? could you send me a email with the instructions?

Hildbrandt your Company gets a strong A plus.

    Hi, I read the hildbrandt machines are made is Canada. I checked tracking information and it’s apparently being dispatched from the Philippines?

    • newton

      That is impossible, the machines are assembled and packaged in our workshop in Richmond BC, Canada and are shipped via our shipping office in Point Roberts, WA, USA. Can you give me the tracking number you have?

  47. dawn bigelow aka dawnssong4u

    Are these guns “tuned” and ready to go out of the box?; Spring/s gauged appropriately for shaders and liners, coil height adjusted appropriate: touches front coil first but makes flush contact with back coil as well? And lastly is it aligned? Or will they need those adjustments done? Meaning that armature bar alignment tool, grams spring gauge/ grams force spring gauge and coil adjustments will need to be made before they are ready to run? Oh and same questions for the Inkstar machines too. Thank you for your time! All my best always, dawn bigelow aka dawnssong4u

    • newton

      Our machines are tested prior to shipping so they are setup in a general setting for them to run properly, this will not take into account how “you” the artist would like your machine tuned specifically. The Liner machines will have factory liner springs and the Shader machines will have shader springs. The armature bar, when pulled down will make full contact with the front coil, it will have a very small gap with the back coil. The armature bar/front spring/back spring will be aligned. We will not do the fine tuning due to the many different ways artist like to fine tune their machines.

  48. allebaze

    i really wish you can ship to Hong Kong. Is it possible to add money in order to have better shipping instead of worrying lost sending?

    Hi, pls advise have you send a kits to Poland without problems?

    • newton

      I would check with Polish customs agency as they would be able to tell you if you are allowed to import tattoo products/equipment/ink/etc.. better than we can.

    I was wondering If I Order It From My Apartment Would It Be Dropped Off At My Door Or Would You Guys Try To Fit It Into My Little 4″ x 4″ x 12″ box?

    • newton

      If the item is not able to fit in your mailbox then they would leave a note with instructions on how to pickup your package.

  52. Justin

    Could you please tell me what kind of specific needles come with the Hildbrandt Professional Tattoo Kit? Also could you recommend some needles to get to line, shade and color with?

    • newton

      Comes with 3RL X 5, 5RL X 5, 7RL X 5, 9RL X 5, 3RS X 5, 5RS X 5, 7RS X 5, 9RS X 5, 5F X 5, and 7M1 X 5. Total of 50 needles. The mix of needles represents the most often sold needles we sell on a daily basis.

  53. Hayley

    I live in Vancouver, is it possible to pick this kit up locally in Richmond rather than having it shipped from the USA? I’m looking to get one within the next few weeks.

    • newton

      Yes that is possible, please call us at 18889448841 to arrange time to come pickup.

    Niiiice!! I just ordered the Hildbrandt Pro Kit. Can’t wait to hold another machine after nine years

    • Shaun Ashmead

      Question..I’m in the Kootenays, a few hundred km east of you in BC.
      What would be the chances of ordering COD? .. I just ordered through that PayPal shit and I can walk there and back before the order goes through!!! Paypal clears AUGUST 6..that shit is retarded!!! I won’t get my gear for two fkn weeks????….and I STILL HAD TO PAY IN YANKEEDOODLE CURRENCY!!!! I’M PISSED RIGHT OFF!!!

      • newton

        Sorry about the issues with your payment, when you pay via eCheck through Paypal it is institution to institution that causes the delay, it is the same as a bank holding a check from a bank they do not deal with on a regular basis and so there is a clearing date. Our website is denominated in US dollars because 90% of our customers are from the USA. We will be creating a Canadian version in the future though.

    I was wondering if you can ship to Cape Town ZA. Also can you maybe advice on what kit to buy for someone who’s just beginning to learn?
    Thank you
    Kind regards

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you for your inquiry. We do ship to Cape Town. As for a kit to suggest, we do have quite a few different beginner to apprentice kits on our website. All of our Inkstar line kits are for just that purpose. Depending on if you are looking to start with just lining or to learn both lining and shading, we do have a couple selections for either option.

      Please do see our Inkstar line under “Tattoo kits” then “All kits”, for selection.

      Thank you

  56. Shaun Ashmead

    This is bank account was debited on the 29Th for this kit, for just short of $260, and I still have to wait til it ”clears”on the 6th?… PayPal is a scamming bunch of wanksyanks, no wonder their economy is crumbeled…I’m so pissed off I can kick someone to pieces. I’m in British Columbia (Kootenays)!!!! I ordered another kit yesterday by card,..see how fast it gets here. I’ll be ordering more too if I like what I see. This thread seems impressed.

  57. Chris Tsek


    My son will visit USA soon and I want to know the dimensions and weight of this kit in order to be sure it can fit his bug.

    Thanks in advance,

    • newton

      The dimensions are 12 x 10 x 8″ weight is approx 9 lbs.

  58. Shaun Ashmead

    These Hildbrandt machines are sweet!!! The whole kit was worth it. Only problem is the case. The base panel is separated from the rail in the back so I can’t carry much in it. Other than that, it’s great! Nice smooth running machines. InkStar machines are nice too. Glad I hooked up with those.

    I am leaving on Saturday morning.
    I am in Champaign Urbana. How many days do you need to ship it here?

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you for your inquiry. The usual shipping time frame within USA is 2 to 4 business days. Please note that we do need 24 to 48 hours to process a payment and package your goods before shipping. We do also offer rush, if you look into our FAQ section, there will be option for expedited shipping. Please note that your package would be consider Heavy Shipping.

      Thank you

  60. nick

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for the reply.
    So how can we arrange for the package to come this friday?

    • Nancy L.

      Hello Sir,

      Thank you for your response. On our website in the FAQ section, there are options of rush shipping. If you really need it by this Friday, your only option would be the 1 business day delivery. And if your order is under 1KG, you can use the express light shipping, and if your order is over 1Kg, then you will have to use to heavy shipping. Otherwise if you can wait, standard shipping is the cheapest, but it will take 3 to 5 business days for light packages to get to you. And heavy packages can range from 2 to 7 business days.

      Thank you

  61. nick

    Thanks again!!

    I added it to my basket. How can I choose the shipping method?!

    • Nancy L.

      Hello Sir,

      Thank you for your inquiry. There are two options for shipping, if you are looking for standard shipping, simply put in your country and zip code/ postal code and the standard shipping will automatically populate. But otherwise if you are looking for express shipping, see our FAQ section for express shipping options. Shipping light is any packages under 1kg, and shipping heavy is any packages over 1KG. So all of our kits would be consider heavy shipping for example. And under light and heavy, you have options of 3 day shipping or 1 day shipping.

      Thank you

    Hello, can you ship it to Estonia?

    • newton

      We are not familiar with the customs regulations for importation of tattoo equipment there, while we can ship to anywhere, we highly recommend you check with Estonia customs to see if tattoo related products are allowed into the country first.

    Hi, I’m from Brazil and I would like to ask a question.
    I saw an ad for a tattoo kit Hildbrandt to sell on ebay and got interested in it. (I want to start to learn to tattoo)
    My question is if the needles and toes that I buy here will serve to machines that come with the kit? Whether or not universal?
    Excuse me, I do not speak English, so I used google translator. I hope you understood my question.
    please answer me and thank you. and if you have a tip or anything I should know about please let me know.
    thank you very much.

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you for your inquiry, let me answer both of your comments here if that is ok. The needles and tips that do come in the kit as well as the ones sold on our website are universal and will fit any of our machines and most standard tattoo machines.

      The kit you selected is a great kit for learning as well as professionals. The kit does come with alot of information on tattooing and techniques.

      We do ship to Brazil, and the requested quote is as follows:

      No. Item Remove Quantity Amount (USD)
      1. Hildbrandt Professional Tattoo Kit System 189.99
      Shipping: 78.01
      Total: 268.00

      Thank you

  64. Vinicius

    One more question. You sent to my country?
    if yes what would be the freight?

  65. Jason

    The kit has been one of my best investment of money but the only problem that im having is with the front spring of my.44 magnum liner after a couple of hours of use it snaps. Do you have any sugestions? Thanks

    • newton

      It is quite rare for a front spring to snap, are you sure you do not mean the back spring? A snapping spring is due to too much tension, I would consider easing a bit on the voltage and bend the spring so that it will be less tense (forward rather than back).

  66. Frankie

    Hi! I’m interested in buying one of your Hildbrandt kits but they seem to be out of stock. When will they be available again? Will they cost more than the previous price? Will they be available on amazon again? Thanks!

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you for your inquiry. I do apologize for the availability on these kits, we are expecting a restock shipment within the next two weeks. When we have restocked, they will be available on Amazon as well as our website, and the prices for these kits don’t usually change unless we had to swap one of the parts included for a more expensive one.

      Thank you

  67. John

    If I ordered this on the 12th would it arrive before Christmas?

    • newton

      Provided that USPS is not late (as it does happen this time of year), it should arrive on time.

    FANTASTIC SERVICE got my new clip cord fast
    Thanks Guys

    Do you send to Puerto Rico?

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you for your inquiry, we can certainly ship to Puerto Rico for you, it would be consider within USA.

      Thank you

  70. Wisi

    I have noticed that you changed some of the components, im not sure about the rotary machines. A friend of mine told me to start with coil machines. And also which power supply is better, the old one (red one) or this one? I want to know because i’m gonna order one of these kits in about a month.

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you for your inquiry. The kit that we have now, is brand new and revamped. We basically took all of the feedback from our customers and made a brand new kit with what most of our customers would like to see. Now, if you do wish to do any trades, you are welcome to do so. We can definitely change the rotaries for coil machines for you if you like, and if you like the red power supply better, we can do that as well. But both are really good power supplies, the one included in the kit is exclusive to just that kit, and does come with functions that the red one did not have.

      And if you do wish to change anything such as the machines, please simply make the order and email us with what you wish to change and we can definitely help.

      Thank you

  71. Wisi

    Thanks a lot. Your reply was very helpful. I will definitely order one of these kits within a month.

    • Nancy L.


      Thank you very much for your response, and im glad i can help. And thank you in advance for your business. Please feel free to contact us again if we can be of any assistance in the future.

      Thank you

    Decent running machines, cheap clip cord, flimsy footswitch, finicky power supply, ok needles, transfer paper might pass for wiping my ass but that is about it and the ink cup holder cracked. Not sure if it was worth the buy.

  74. Rated 5 out of 5


    The consistency is great with a bit of adjustments on the coils and it doesnt stall when you adjust it properly. The rotaries are just a plug and go, easy stuff. Like the supplies, all useful. Power supply does take a bit to get use to.

  75. Rated 4 out of 5


    I bought this pro kits as it appeared to have all I need to do tattooing and when it got to my house I was more than pleased with it. Pretty good quality machines, power supply, needles, etc.. We are however not pleased with the ink. It is supposed to come with professional ink. I even heard of Radiant ink being a quality brand but upon using the ink we noticed that it was runny and not characteristic of such a quality ink. It still works but its no good if you are used to thick quality stuff like Eternal.

  76. Rated 5 out of 5


    I’m very happy with everything. I just got it yesterday(01/15/2016) and I’m more than happy with it. I’ve already done a tattoo on my boyfriend and I definitly recommend this to anyone who is looking for something like this.

    Foot pedal was useless after being used just a few times. The power supply is just another knock off Critical power supply, I bet the duty cycle isn’t even reading correctly because it doesn’t even read the rotary guns that come with it. Only thing that was good is the coil guns, defnitely good quality and well made. I was probably better off just buying those on their own and the power supply and save myself the $50 bucks to get a better foot pedal, cords, needles, paper, etc..

  78. Rated 2 out of 5


    Not what I was expecting from a “professional” kit. The transfer paper needs to push extra hard with the pen to make it work. I emailed support and they sent me a lame video on youtube teaching me how to use transfer paper, umm HELLO I was talking about how well it worked not how to do it?? The foot pedal feels like it is going to break the next time I press on it, I asked for a replacement and they said that it would have to be broken in order for them to fix it, what if it breaks when I am doing a tattoo on someone? Are they going to fix my tattoo? Everything seems garbage, only thing that works somewhat decent is the tattoo guns but for a professional kit, I am expecting everything to be professional.

    Sir Jinxie

    For the price and the level of the machine and power supply this was a good buy. I started off using a cheapie kit from ebay and decided it was time to move up. I read on a lot of reviews and forums that Hildbrandt makes good machines and I am glad I was not disappointed. The power supply is pretty good too, although I did not like how the display can’t seem to stay at the exact voltage and kind of goes up and down when running. The rest of the stuff in the kit is nothing to write home about but I bought this for the machines mostly.

  80. Rated 4 out of 5


    Decent kit for the money the coil machines are good the rest is about what you would expect.
    The power supply is ok just takes some getting used to and the customer service is outstanding,Nancy is exceptional at her job.

    After using the rotarys for several pieces I have come to really like them.They are smooth easy to use and lay down the Ink exactly the way I want it……….I am pretty much using them exclusively now and have no desire to go back to coil machines.

    Finally purchased this kit after months of procastiniating, and by far the best investment ever tattoo wise, was happy with the kit and the accessories, haven’t had the chane to use the power suplly so it’s going back into the steel box until i can practice with it

    • newton

      Glad you finally took the plunge Jonathan! Hope the equipment serves you well!
