A wireless tattoo machine of the highest standard, the FK Irons Flux Max is powered by an improved PowerBolt II, offering tattoo artists a more refined user experience than ever before, thanks to a host of technological advancements.
The PowerBolt II battery pack is, in our opinion, what makes the Flux Max so amazing.

Additionally, tattooists can take advantage of Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, modify the eGive level from 0 to 3, and even change the screen orientation to cater to left-handed artists.
The FK Irons Flux Max is available with one of three stroke lengths: 3.2, 4.0 or 4.5 mm, which the best option for you dependant on your tattooing style and preference.
