Now and then I’ll get DMs or emails asking what equipment it is I use for my tattoos. There’s definitely no secret to a perfect set up, it’s whatever works for you! I’ve done my fair share of asking artists but I found these are my favourite few things that I use. -
Machines: • @fkirons Xion - running at around 7.5 volts for lining and colour packing.
• @danselfmade Coil - running at about 5 volts -
• @ghostcartridges - for 90% of what I do. Everything from a 3RL up to a 11RS
• @lockdownneedle - For massive bold solid lines I’ll use my coil and these needles. A lot of the simple work I’ll use these and spread the needle.
Inks: • @eternalink @worldfamousink & Dermaglo - again, there’s loads of brands out there but these are what I really like to use.
Process Butter - • @butterluxe_uk - used during the Tattoo, keeps the redness and swelling down, also amazing for aftercare.
I also use a Butterluxe spray during for pain relief combined with a foam they offer.
I just thought I’d share what I use, many artist don’t like sharing inks, needles etc and I do get it a lot so I just thought it may help! 😊 Theres no right or wrong thing to use, just what works for you.
