Bavarian Custom Irons

Bavarian Custom Irons is well-known for its high-quality coil machines, foot pedals, cords, power supplies, and accessories.

Each and every product from Bavarian Custom Irons is made in Germany under the direction of Stefan Fischer, who has been hand-building machines since 2006.

Before the inception of Bavarian Custom Irons, Stefan was a tattoo artist in Bavaria, Germany who found that he wasn’t entirely happy with the machines that were on the market.

So, combining his training as an industrial mechanic with a desire for a top-quality tattoo machine, Stefan began to build his own coil machines specifically for his needs as an artist.

After only a few months, other artists recognised the quality of Stefan’s machines and wanted to try them out for themselves, leading Stefan to create Bavarian Custom Irons, the company we all know and love today.

Today Killer Ink Tattoo is a proud stockist of a range of tattoo machines, power supplies, footswitches, cords, and other accessories from Stefan Fischer and Bavarian Custom Irons.

All coil tattoo machines from Bavarian Custom Irons are hand-made using the finest materials and wound coils, ensuring that they are built to last.

Each and every machine comes with a lifetime guarantee on all parts, along with a certificate of authenticity, so artists can buy them with complete confidence.

Not only are the Bavarian Custom Irons machines incredibly good runners, they are also very easy on the eye, with iconic designs like the Antichrist, Knuckle, and Pineapple.

As with the machines, Bavarian Custom Irons’ Transformator 239 power supplies are built to the highest quality and come with a lifetime guarantee.

All Bavarian Custom Irons power supplies feature a frame made from solid aluminium and steel and have been brazed by the German brand’s master electrician.

The Bavarian Custom Irons foot switches are the perfect accompaniment to the Transformator 239 power supplies, and, as you might have guessed, also have a lifetime guarantee.

Not only do they feature eye-catching designs, the Bavarian Custom Irons foot pedals are completely made from metal, so no plastic anywhere!

Killer Ink Tattoo also stocks a range of other supplies from Bavarian Custom Irons, including clip/RCA cords, arm rests, and machine parts.

Do yourself a favour and check out our full range of Bavarian Custom Irons products today!

Stigma-Rotary® Tattoo Machines

Stigma-Rotary® has been revolutionising the tattoo industry ever since its first adjustable rotary machine in 2005. Now it has released its latest, eagerly-anticipated offering, the Thorn.

The Stigma-Rotary® Thorn is a pen-style rotary with the size and shape of a grip. With just 9.3 cm in length and weighing only 115 grams, it literally feels like you’re holding just a grip!

Most of its weight is shifted towards the front of the machine, making it perfectly balanced and comfortable to work with.

The Stigma® Thorn is an all-round master with its fixed 3.5 mm stroke and offers a solid hit. We also offer versions of the rotary with 3 and 4 mm stroke lengths.

Stigma-Rotary®’s latest Thorn machine is powered by a high-quality, Swiss-made motor and features a protected RCA connection, so durability and reliability are a given.

The Stigma® Thorn can be used with cartridges from all major brands thanks to the interchangeable cartridge receivers.

Make sure to also check out Stigma®'s other popular pen-style rotaries, the Stylist and Spear, as well as the versatile Hyper V4!

The Stigma-Rotary® Stylist and Spear are both excellent pen-like machines. The main difference between them is that the Spear offers adjustable give, whereas the Stylist has no give. The Stigma® Spear is completely adjustable on the fly.

The Stigma-Rotary® Hyper V4 is a smooth running and versatile hybrid tattoo machine that pushes standard needles and cartridges, while offering adjustable stroke length and give.

Stigma® also offers a range of high-quality grips, along with its Advanced Needle Cartridges, so check out its full range of products and pick something up for yourself!

Cheyenne Sol Luna & Sol Terra

In our latest video review, we give our first impressions of two new machines from Cheyenne, the Sol Luna and Sol Terra.

The Sol Luna and Sol Terra will be joining Cheyenne’s Sol range, following on from the acclaimed Sol Nova rotary.

Both the Cheyenne Sol Luna and Sol Terra are high-performance machines that are quieter and vibrate less than conventional machines.

Each of these powerful rotaries is fitted with a brushless DC motor that packs a punch and offers better ink saturation. In addition, the smooth and soft running of the machines allow for a faster healing process.

Both machines have two operating modes, known as HardDrive and SENSIDRIVE. These modes allow you to choose between working at a controlled or regulated speed by altering the motor control.

With the HardDrive function, your machine will run at a controlled speed, with no give and a consistent hard hit.

Turning the SensiSwitch will enable the new SENSIDRIVE function, meaning that the speed of the machine will be adjusted depending on the surface that you’re tattooing. This is due to the motor reacting more sensitively to the resistance of the skin.

The main difference between the two machines is the stroke length. The Sol Luna has a 2.5 mm stroke length, whereas the Sol Terra offers a 4 mm stroke length.

Make sure to watch our video below for more information on the similarities and differences between the Cheyenne Sol Terra and Sol Luna.

Hustle Bubbles Deluxe

From tattoo butters to foam wash, Hustle Butter continues to release game-changing products.

Hustle Bubbles Deluxe is everything you love about the original Hustle Butter Deluxe in an anti-microbial skin cleanser.

The release of Hustle Bubbles Deluxe followed the CBD-infused Hustle Butter C.B.D. Luxe and the original Hustle Butter Deluxe tattoo care.

Upon its release, artists loved Hustle Butter C.B.D. Luxe as it was the same tattoo butter that they all knew and loved, but with the added benefit of 500mg of CBD oil for anti-inflammatory properties.

C.B.D. Luxe brings the same benefits as the original Hustle Butter Deluxe, meaning no clogged tubes, no removed stencils, no overworked highlights, and a noticeable reduction in redness and irritation of the skin.

You can’t knock the hustle!

Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment

World-renowned for its high-quality, innovative tattoo supplies, Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment raised the bar again last year with the release of the incredible Sol Nova machine.

The Sol Nova followed in the footsteps of well-loved rotaries from Cheyenne like the HAWK Pen, Thunder and Spirit, and offered tattooists a small, light yet powerful addition to their tattooing arsenal.

When compared to the widely-acclaimed Cheyenne HAWK Pen, the Sol Nova boasts more power and softer handling, making it a new favourite of many tattoo artists.

The durable and robust Cheyenne Sol Nova has perfect balance, with its weight shifted to the front, allowing for optimum control and accuracy.

The powerful brushless DC motor within packs a punch, resulting in faster ink saturation. However, its quiet and soft operational mode means that it still manages to remain gentle on the skin, allowing for a faster healing process.

A great all-rounder, Cheyenne’s latest rotary tattoo machine features a 3.5mm stroke and is ideal for precise lining, as well as soft shading.

The furore over the release of the Sol Nova didn’t mean that artists forgot about its predecessor though, as the Cheyenne HAWK Pen still remains one of the best-selling and most loved tattoo machines on the market.

From its inception up until today, artists have loved the control and accuracy offered by the Cheyenne HAWK Pen, along with its quiet running, lower vibration than conventional machines, and ergonomic, marker pen-like shape.

Similarly, you can find countless tattoo artists around the globe using Cheyenne’s earlier models to great effect. The Thunder, Spirit and original HAWK models are still some of the best rotary tattoo machines around today and offer high-quality performance, perfect for a variety of styles.

But that's only the beginning of what we have to offer from Cheyenne as we also stock a wide range of the brand's other equipment, including cartridges, cables, power supplies, and more!

One of the most popular offerings from Cheyenne are its HAWK Safety Cartridges, along with the newer HAWK Craft Cartridges.

Cheyenne HAWK Cartridges were a huge hit when first released as they offered artists a quickly interchangeable system that simply made their lives easier when tattooing.

The ability to change between needle configurations in seconds meant that artists would save time and, therefore, money during tattooing sessions.

After the success of the Safety cartridges, Cheyenne introduced HAWK Craft Cartridges to the world. The Cheyenne HAWK Craft Cartridges have all the qualities you’ve come to expect from the brand, but for a lower cost!

What sets the Craft cartridges aside from the standard HAWK Cartridges is the simplified design – the plastic tips are made from a single mould of medical-grade plastic. The ergonomic design of the cartridges also allows artists to work more closely to the skin.

Under its HAWK umbrella, Cheyenne has also launched various other high-quality tattoo supplies and equipment over the years, including the PU power supplies, a foot switch, and various cables.

You can be sure that each and every piece of equipment from Cheyenne will raise your tattooing level, so make sure to try them for yourself!

So, what is next for Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment? The German brand is expected to add two more machines to their ‘Sol’ rotary range in 2019, so watch this space for further developments!

Critical Tattoo Power Supplies

Critical Tattoo Power Supplies are some of the sleekest and most innovative around, so we wanted to take a look at the range in-depth and show you just why artists can’t get enough of them!

Founded in 2005 across the pond in Nevada, United States, Critical Tattoo Supply has been creating high-quality products for professional tattoo artists ever since.

Critical’s goal has always been “to offer something innovative yet elegant and clean with no gimmicks,” and this goal has been achieved time and time again.

The latest power supplies from the American company are the Critical XR and XR-D models, the spiritual successor to the well-loved CX power station series. These power supplies are great for conventions and general studio use, thanks to their user-friendly designs.

Both the XR and the Critical XR-D tattoo power supplies offer a full colour TFT display with user-selectable colour themes and large easy-to-read fonts. Tattoo artists can operate the power supplies via a touch interface, making it easy to use and also easy to cover for hygiene purposes.

The displays show several different settings, including volts, amps, speed, duty cycle, and settle. It can also record your session time with a user-set hourly rate.

Both the Critical XR and XR-D power supplies can store up to six different voltage presets, making it easy to switch between tattoo machines or between lining and shading. The voltage can be adjusted from 0 to 18 Volts in 0.1 Volt increments.

Unlike previous Critical tattoo power supplies, the housings of the XR and XR-D are made of billet aluminium that has been CNC-machined, making them more durable and hard-wearing.

Each of the power supplies can be operated with or without a foot pedal, thanks to the pedal override button. There is also a jump start mode, which can be used for rotary tattoo machines that need a little extra boost to get started.

Both the jump start feature and maintained pedal modes can now be independently assigned to the preset and output buttons – again, increasing the user-friendliness of the power supplies.

Critical has also included a magnetic mount with both tattoo power supplies, allowing artists to attach them to any magnetic surface, making them easy to reach while tattooing.

Although they share a lot of the same features, the Critical XR and XR-D power supplies do have some differences.

The Critical XR model has a single tattoo machine input, while the Critical XR-D version has a dual input, meaning that artists can connect two machines to the power supply at a time.

In addition, the Critical XR-D also has a built-in oscilloscope that is not featured on the XR. The built-in oscilloscope offers a visual approach to coil machine tuning, making it easier for tattoo artists to tune the coils on their machine.

One power supply that really caught the eye of tattoo artists everywhere upon its release was the quirky Critical Atom, as well as its successor, the AtomX.

When it was first shown to the public, the Critical Atom looked like no other power supply. Not only does the colour change depending on the voltage you’re running your machine on, but it contained just the one button to operate all functions!

To change the voltage of the power supply, artists simply had to just turn the button, which, in turn, also changed the colour of the lights on the Atom. A click of the same button would also switch on your tattoo machine or change settings like maintained mode and jump start.

Expanding on this eye-catching design was the even sleeker Critical AtomX, which removed the button in favour of a digital display that also shows the exact voltage you’re running your machine at.

Losing the control button also made it easier for tattoo artists to use protective film on the Critical AtomX to keep it hygienic.

Both the Critical Atom and AtomX are compatible with all coil and rotary tattoo machines and contain built-in magnets, which allow them to be attached to any magnetic surface – just like the aforementioned Critical XR and XR-D models.

Before the radical design direction of the Atom and AtomX, Critical was best-known for its well-received CX range of power supplies.

The Critical CX-1, CX-2 and CX-2R power stations are still among the best power supplies in the tattooing industry and come jam-packed with more features than you can shake a stick at.

Each of these tattoo power supplies from Critical can handle any coil or rotary machine on the market with solid power, no matter how long your tattooing session lasts.

The entire CX range of power supplies can be easily bagged or wrapped to ensure they remain hygienic.

The Critical CX-2R tattoo power supply also comes with the added benefit of being wireless compatible, meaning that you can use the Critical Wireless Footswitch with it without the need for the universal receiver.

So all in all, if you're looking for your next tattoo power supply, look no further than Critical!

EGO Rotary Tattoo Machines

If you’re looking for a high-quality tattoo machine that is super-lightweight and wrist-friendly, look no further than those offered by EGO Rotary.

Created and designed by tattoo artist Bez from Triple Six Studios in Sunderland, UK, each and every EGO Rotary tattoo machine is incredibly easy to use, thanks to their ergonomic designs and light weight.

The latest tattoo machine from Bez and EGO Rotary is the Polygon, a new cartridge-dedicated machine that follows in the footsteps of the EGO R12 and R12 Plus models.

The new EGO Polygon has a fully-aluminium body and is the smallest machine from Bez to-date, topping the scales at just 65 grams – or 55 grams without the vice connector.

Powering the EGO Rotary Polygon is an enclosed Faulhaber brushless motor, while the tattoo machine has no start-up delay. The Polygon is smooth-running and has a perfectly straight, true linear drive motion – meaning no sideway vibration.

Artists can choose the give of the EGO Polygon by selecting one of seven main and nine disposable drive bars, each offering a different level of give (indicated by various colours).

There are main and disposable drive bars that offer soft, medium, and hard give, while an aluminium main drive bar offers a solid hit with no give.

Aside from the Polygon, the EGO Vertex 2 and V2 Plus rotary tattoo machines utilise the company’s ‘Power Triangle’ system. The EGO Rotary power triangles replicate the front and back spring system from a coil tattoo machine.

Thanks to the power triangles, tattoo artists can configure the EGO V2 Plus and Vertex 2 machines exactly how they want it, in terms of give and throw.

The EGO Vertex 2 also includes a direct drive option, giving tattoo artists the ability to harness the full power of the Faulhaber motor. Using the direct drive system over the power triangles means eliminating the machines give, in turn giving it a more aggressive hit behind the needle.

Not content with producing some of the best rotary tattoo machines around, EGO Rotary has also developed various high-quality tattoo grips, including the latest Aluminium Geo Grips and an assortment of Silicone and Disposable grips.

The new EGO Aluminium Geo Grips are cartridge grips with adjustable needle depth by simply turning the grip. The Geos click mechanism will lock the cartridge in the desired depth to prevent any involuntary turning while in use.

EGO Rotary’s latest Geo Grips have been crafted from aircraft aluminium and stainless steel, making them fully autoclavable.

Killer Ink Tattoo offers two versions of the EGO Aluminium Geo Grip in our online shop: Slimline (25mm at its widest point) and Large (35mm at its widest point), with various colours available. The EGO Geo Grips are compatible with all major cartridge brands.

If you prefer to use disposable grips, make sure to check out our range of EGO Disposable Cartridge Grips. We stock boxes of EGO Memory Foam Grip Covers, as well as EGO HAWKFLOW Disposable Cheyenne HAWK Grips and HAWKFLOW/BIOHAWK Disposable Cartridge Tubes.

Our online store also carries Silicone EGO Biogrips, which are autoclavable and ergonomically-designed to give you the utmost comfort while tattooing.

Range of Tattoo Needle Cartridges

We stock some of the best tattoo needle cartridges around, from KWADRON to Magic Moon, Cheyenne HAWK to Stigma-Rotary®, and our own Killer Ink Tattoo range.

No matter what type of tattoo cartridge you're looking for, we stock all configurations, perfect for lining, shading, and colour packing.

Our own Killer Ink Tattoo cartridges are available in two types: Stellar and Precision.

Both are of the highest quality and contain precision soldered needles and a secure membrane, which ensures that no ink or blood can leak through into the grip.

Killer Ink Tattoo Stellar Cartridges are enclosed in a single capsule, which is made from a super strong polycarbonate material and allows the needle to effortlessly glide without causing wear and tear.

The Stellar Cartridges are transparent, offering complete visibility of the needle while tattooing.

Our Precision Needle Cartridges are similar to the Stellar ones in terms of the membrane and high build quality, although they feature a smooth contoured tip which is completely transparent.

Killer Ink Tattoo Precision Needle Cartridges are now available in boxes of 20 at an even better price!

HAWK cartridges from Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment are some of the most recognisable in the industry, offering artists a quickly interchangeable system that makes their life easier.

Tattoo artists can change between needle configurations in seconds, helping them to save time and, therefore, money.

After the success of the Cheyenne HAWK Cartridges, the German company introduced HAWK Craft Cartridges to the world.

Cheyenne HAWK Craft Cartridges have all the qualities you’ve come to expect from the brand, but for a lower cost.

What sets the Cheyenne Craft Cartridges apart is the simplified design – the plastic tips are made from a single mould of medical grade plastic.

Countless artists around the globe are using Cheyenne HAWK Cartridges, and that many artists can’t be wrong!

KWADRON has established a reputation for manufacturing some of the best tattoo needles around, so it comes as no surprise that its tattoo cartridges are just as well received.

All KWADRON cartridges are fitted with razor-sharp, flexible needles, grouped together with the highest possible precision.

The cartridges also feature a needle stabilising system, which ensures optimal performance of your needles.

The tips of the needles are made from a medical-grade plastic, ensuring minimal friction and keeping your needles sharper for longer.

Heading back to Germany, Magic Moon is renowned as one of the best producers of tattoo cartridges around, with artists worldwide using its products.

Killer Ink Tattoo stocks the complete collection of Magic Moon cartridges, which are of the highest quality and go through the same rigorous quality control checks.

Magic Moon’s range of cartridges are colour-coded, so you can tell the different configurations apart quickly and easily.

We offer Magic Moon cartridges in a large range of configurations, tapers and sizes, so you’ll definitely find the right equipment for your needs!

The Stigma-Rotary® Advanced Cartridge System was designed with safety in mind.

All tattoo cartridges from Stigma-Rotary® feature an external sealing cap to prevent any leak through to the grip and tattoo machine.

Furthermore, when a Stigma® cartridge is connected to a Stigma® grip, this forms a dual seal, meaning that the cartridge seals completely with the grip at the connecting spot.

Stigma-Rotary® cartridges allow artists to comfortable grip them for ultimate control, thanks to their ergonomic shape and textured design.

While tattooing, the cartridges feel like an extension of the grip, making for a more comfortable experience.

The Stigma® cartridges are compatible with all Stigma-Rotary® tattoo machines that are currently available on our website.

TattooSnap is a fully-integrated disposable cartridge grip system – the needle cartridge is attached to the grip, making it very stable and secure.

TattooSnap Sterile Cartridges can be used on any tattoo machine with the use of the TattooSnap Vice Adapter.

Due to the magnetic connector on the adapter, the cartridge will simply snap into place, meaning that the needle will be perfectly centred.

Available in various configurations, the cartridges will also run on a lower voltage compared to other brands.

Before you go, make sure to check out our Killer Ink Disposable Tattoo Cartridge Trays.

Holding up to five cartridges, our Disposable Cartridge Trays will keep your cartridges in place while you’re not using them.

This won’t just keep your workplace tidy, it will also keep the cartridges from getting contaminated or dripping ink over your work surface.

The reservoirs at the front of the trays can also be filled with water to keep your needle cartridges from drying out.

Best Rotary Tattoo Machines

With so many rotary tattoo machines to choose from, it can be hard to know which is the best fit for you.

We’re going to run through the best rotary tattoo machines that are available to order from Killer Ink Tattoo and help you find your next machine.

There are a number of benefits to working with rotary machines, with many tattoo artists enjoying the low maintenance and ease of use.

No matter which rotary tattoo machine you choose to order from our online shop, you can be sure that it will serve you for years to come!

Killer Ink Tattoo is the global distributor for Stigma-Rotary® tattoo machines, which has designed some of the best rotary machines on the market today.

It’s been a very busy year for Stigma-Rotary®, with the brand releasing three incredible tattoo machines – two pen-style rotaries and one hybrid machine.

Artists who prefer using a pen-style rotary tattoo machine have the choice between Stigma-Rotary® Stylist and Spear models.

Both machines are compatible with all brands of cartridges, including Stigma®’s advanced cartridges and convention cartridges – like Cheyenne or our own brand of Stellar Cartridges.

The Stigma-Rotary® Stylist features a long ergonomic grip, 6W Swiss motor and an adjustable stroke length, while the Stigma-Rotary® Spear is completely adjustable on the fly – offering both adjustable stroke length AND give.

Following on from the Hyper V3 is the Stigma-Rotary® Hyper V4, a smooth-running and versatile hybrid tattoo machine.

The Hyper V4 features a universal screw-on connection which allows it to be used with cartridge grips from all the major brands.

Stigma®’s Hyper V4 tattoo machine pushes both standard needles and cartridges, while offering adjustable stroke length and give.

More recently, Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment looked to shake up the tattoo market with the release of its new Sol Nova rotary tattoo machine.

As with the much-loved Cheyenne HAWK Pen, the new Cheyenne Sol Nova has an ergonomic, pen-like shape. Compared to the Pen, however, the Sol Nova boasts more power and softer handling.

By shifting the weight of the machine to the front, Cheyenne has given the Sol Nova perfect balance, allowing for optimum control and accuracy.

The powerful brushless DC motor within the Cheyenne Sol Nova packs a punch, resulting in faster ink saturation. Even with this powerful motor, the quiet and soft operational mode of the Sol Nova means that it remains gentle on the skin, therefore allowing for a faster healing process.

As previously mentioned, the Cheyenne HAWK Pen is well-loved by tattoo artists around the globe and has been since the debut of the prototype back in 2014.

The Cheyenne HAWK Pen was the first-ever pen-style rotary tattoo machine and is still one of the best in its category today.

The idea of the pen-like shape was to give artists the closest feel to an actual pen that you could with a tattoo machine. For this reason, tattoo artists have found that they have more control and accuracy when using the HAWK Pen.

Before they conceived of a pen-shaped tattoo machine, Cheyenne was well-known for its three HAWK-branded rotary machines: the HAWK, HAWK Spirit, and HAWK Thunder.

The HAWK was Cheyenne’s first rotary tattoo machine and the company has now honoured its legacy with a special edition re-release to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Following on from this iconic machine was the Cheyenne HAWK Spirit, a light and flexible rotary that is great for all aspects of tattooing.

The HAWK Spirit is a true all-rounder machine, delivering fast strokes and quick punctures, while also being incredibly easy to use.

Next up was the Cheyenne HAWK Thunder, another superb all-rounder rotary tattoo machine that excelled at lining, shading and colouring work.

Cheyenne increased the stroke length of the HAWK Thunder tattoo machine up to 4mm, which makes it one of the best rotaries for colour packing and solid black work.

All EGO Rotary tattoo machines are super-lightweight with wrist-friendly designs, created and designed by tattoo artist Bez from Triple Six Studios in Sunderland, UK.

The latest offering from Bez is the brand-new EGO Polygon, a cartridge-dedicated rotary tattoo machine that follows on from the R12 and R12 Plus.

Featuring a fully-aluminium body with a lightweight, ergonomic design, the Polygon is the smallest machine from EGO Rotary to-date, weighing only 65 grams – or 55 grams without the vice connector.

The EGO Polygon is powered by an enclosed Faulhaber brushless motor and has no start-up delay. This smooth-running rotary has a perfectly straight, true linear drive motion, meaning no sideway vibration.

Tattoo artists can choose the give of the Polygon via seven main and nine disposable drive bars, each offering a different level of give indicated by various colours. Artists can use either the main or disposable drive bars to select soft, medium and hard give, while an aluminium main drive bar offers a solid hit with no give.

Unlike the Polygon, the Vertex 2 and V2 Plus tattoo machines from EGO Rotary utilise the company’s infamous ‘Power Triangles’, which replicate the front and back spring system from coil tattoo machines.

By using the power triangle system, tattoo artists can configure the EGO V2 Plus and Vertex 2 rotary tattoo machines exactly how they want it, in terms of give and throw.

The EGO Vertex 2 also includes a direct drive system option, which allows you to harness the full power of the Faulhaber motor. By using the direct drive system over the power triangles, you eliminate the machines give, which in turn gives it a more aggressive punch behind the needle.

Not content with creating some of the world’s best coil tattoo machines, FK Irons owner Gaston Siciliano entered the ‘Rotary Age’ with Spektra, a brand dedicated to the engineering of high-quality rotary tattoo machines.

Most recently, Spektra has been riding a wave of acclaim for its pen-shaped Xion rotary, which quickly took to the hearts and hands of some of the best tattoo artists across the world.

The Spektra Xion is a cartridge-dedicated tattoo machine that is both lightweight and ergonomic, allowing for optimal manoeuvrability – the kind of machine that tattoo artists will be able to use over long sessions.

Spektra Rotary has fitted the Xion with a specially-designed 6W MotorBolt that provides maximum torque throughout the tattooing session and ensures optimal performance of your cartridges.

The Spektra Xion is fully-adjustable, with tattoo artists able to adjust the stroke length, needle depth and give.

Permanent make-up artists can also take advantage of the Spektra Xion S, which has a smaller grip and a shorter stroke length – optimal for smaller needles and higher speeds, both commonly used for permanent make-up.

Aside from the Xion, Spektra Rotary also offers three top-class tattoo machines: the Edge X, Halo 2 Crossover, and Direkt 2.

The Spektra Edge X is a sophisticated and versatile cartridge-dedicated tattoo machine that utilises the Hex Drive motor system and Spektra’s MultiVise system.

The MultiVise system from Spektra allowed tattoo artists to use both conventional cartridge grips with a backstem and screw-on-style cartridge grips with the Edge X – which was a first in the industry upon release.

Thanks to an adjustable stroke with variable options, the Spektra Edge X eliminated the need for interchangeable stroke wheels.

After the release of the Edge X, Spektra brought back its original Halo machine with a bang, resulting in its do-all successor, the Halo 2 Crossover.

The Spektra Halo 2 Crossover is a rotary tattoo machine that handles it all, designed to push cartridges and standard needles.

The Halo 2 Crossover comes with a needle clip-on and stabiliser system, meaning artists could say goodbye to grommets and rubber bands.

Spektra’s Halo 2 rotary machine offers both adjustable stroke and give – the latter of which has been optimised for a flawless response with both cartridges and tattoo needles.

As with the Halo 2 Crossover, the Spektra Direkt 2 Crossover was designed to push both tattoo cartridges and standard needles.

Many of the world’s best tattoo artists have lauded the Direkt 2 Crossover, enjoying its powerful and consistent hit and its silent running at any voltage.

The Direkt 2 Crossover features the aforementioned MultiVise system from Spektra, along with a Hex Drive MotorBolt system that is compatible with Direkt and Edge X motors.

Across the pond in the United States, NeoTat has been producing some of the best quality rotary tattoo machines over the last 14 years.

Killer Ink Tattoo stocks three rotary machines from NeoTat: the Original, Vivace and Stregato.

The NeoTat Original is a consistent, smooth-running rotary tattoo machine that features a lightweight, ergonomic design that is easy to disassemble and clean.

Following on from the Original is the NeoTat Vivace, a lighter rotary machine featuring a removable, interchangeable motor cartridge, allowing for quick and easy adjustments to its stroke length.

The ergonomic design of the Vivace, as well as its low levels of vibration, helps to cut down on the fatigue associated with long tattooing sessions.

The latest offering from NeoTat is the Stregato, a cartridge-dedicated rotary tattoo machine that is smooth-running and powerful enough to push even the largest needle cartridges.

As with all machines from the American brand, the NeoTat Stregato has an ergonomically-shaped body that fits comfortable in your hand and is easy to grip while tattooing.

The Stregato also features NeoTat’s unique EyeLoc locking bar loop system, which allows tattoo artists a choice of soft of hard disposable drive bar cushions. This gives artists the choice between a softer or harder hit.

Rotary machines from Inkjecta are popular with many of the world’s best tattoo artists today, whether it be the Lite, Titan or Elite versions.

All Inkjecta rotaries are cartridge-dedicated tattoo machines that are incredible versatile and suitable for lining, shading and colouring across all styles.

Each Inkjecta tattoo machine comes with a pre-installed 3.25mm excenter, RCA connection, and a custom ‘Nano Technology’ brushless motor with no start-up delay.

The Titan and Elite models are the most versatile Inkjecta rotary machines as they come with soft, medium, and hard torsion bars. These torsion bars offer tattoo artists the ability to set the hardness of their machine just the way they like it.

Both the Lite and Elite versions feature an alloy billet construction, with the Elite also coming equipped with a titanium collar vice. The Titan variant, however, has a carbon fibre frame, making it extremely lightweight and topping the scales at just 47 grams.

Although best known for producing some of the finest tattoo needles and cartridges around, KWADRON also manufactures rotary tattoo machines under the ‘Equaliser’ moniker.

The first machine, the Equaliser Proton, is a pen-style rotary that will run cartridges from all of the major brands.

The Proton is powered by a 5W motor and features an advanced gear system that makes it a very quiet and reliable machine, with a complete lack of vibration when running.

Following on from the Proton was the Equaliser Mikron and Mikron Turbo – both small, cartridge-dedicated rotary tattoo machines that are very comfortable to work with.

The Mikron and Equaliser Mikron Turbo are fitted with a 4.5W Faulhaber motor and have a 3.5mm stroke length.

When it comes down to finding the best rotary tattoo machine for you, it really all comes down to preference.
