Tattoos − Are you obsessed in getting one?
Enthused by style and fashion trends, a tattoo is the latest style statement to flaunt. With its myriad colors, designs and hues, a tattoo will surely look great on you. At Inkinn, we use state of the art tattoo machines and equipment ’s to create a tattoo, a permanent marking of the skin with indelible ink.
Tattoo Machines: Modern tattoo machines use electromagnetic coils to move an armature bar up and down. Connected to the armature bar is a barred needle grouping that pushes ink into the skin. Tattoo artists generally use the term "machine", or even "iron", to refer to their equipment. The word "gun" is often used but many tattoo professionals dislike it. In addition to "coiled" tattoo machine there are also Rotary Tattoo Machines, which are powered by regulated motors rather than electromagnetic coils.
The basic electrical principle of electromagnetism, discovered in 1819 by the Danish inventor Oersted, has been used in all tattoo machine patents and in most practical applications of tattoo machines. Tattoo machines are a very personalized tool. No two are the same.
There are different types of tattoo machine these days used for different purposes Rotary Tattoo Machine:Rotary tattoo machines use an electric motor that physically drives the needle up and down where a standard two coil machines use magnetism to move the needles. Some advantages a rotary style machine may have over traditional machines are that they often weigh less than standard machines. Because a rotary uses a single motor instead of two coils, and an armature bar assembly, they can weigh as little as half as much as a standard stamped steel frame coil machine.
Rotaries are very simple; with no springs contact posts or armature bars to vibrate loose, weaken or wear out. Because of the rotary action, they are basically free from vibration and run virtually silent. There are No clip cords. Rotary machines use RCA jack inputs to power them, making them easier to plug in and manipulate. Rotary machines run efficiently on the same voltage (about 5.75v to 7v) as a standard coil machine, there is no need to buy another power supply. Rotary Machines also use the same needles and tube combinations as a standard machine and can be used to line or shade a tattoo. Rotary machines are a matter of preference. You’ll never know if one is right for you until you try one and decide for yourself.
Coil tattoo machine: Coil tattoo machines are the most commonly seen and used. These machines use an electromagnetic circuit to move the needle grouping. There are many variations, from single-coiled machines to triple-coiled machines. They can be made from many different materials and in many different sizes and shapes. Dual-coiled machines are considered to be standard. The coils generally range from 8 to 10 wrap. The coils create the impedance, or resistance, used to properly regulate the machine's speed and power. This causes less trauma to the skin.
These machines are basically used for two main purposes
Tattoo Needles: Savor every style moment. If style has always rated high for you, go for Ink Inn tattoos. Prove the distinctiveness in you and let your style do the talking today. If you are a voracious tattoo lover and have always been fascinated by tattoos, here is some interesting information about tattoo needles. The diameter of tattoo needle types can be found by looking at the first two numbers of the packaging. If you look at your pre-made needle packaging, you will notice it will say something like 1207RL. The two numbers, 12, indicate the diameter.
The count indicates the number of needles grouped together at the point of the bar. In the example we used earlier, a 1207RL needle, 12 is the diameter, 7 indicates the count. So a 1207RL needle will have 7 needles soldered to the tip of the bar. The configuration determines the shape or pattern of how the ink will go into the skin. So in the example of 1207RL, where 12 is the diameter, 7 is the count, RL, indicates the configuration.
How to use Tattoo Needles
Rounds are quite straight forward. The larger the area of coverage, the larger count needle you would use. Pigment dispersal using a magnum is smoother than rounds. A good comparison would be a round liner is a pen while a magnum is a magic marker. Proper use of a magnum takes a bit of practice. Color in a circular motion. A magnum, being wider, will cover more area faster than a conventional round. Wipe the skin often so you can pay attention to the texture while you are using a magnum. Getting tattoos done has been a smooth job for us. If a stylish thought has just crossed your mind, come to Ink Inn for creative and colorful tattoo designs. After coming to Ink Inn, your first love will always remain tattoos.
Tips, Tubes and Grips:The parts of a tattoo machine are the frame with attached pieces, the tubes which can be removed for sterilization for each tattoo, and the needles that are inserted into the tubes and stick out the tubes opening at the end. The tubes also have a hand grip on them, which is where the tattoo artist holds the tattoo machine. These tubes are almost always stainless steel, with the hand grips the same, or a hard plastic. These tubes do not actually touch the customer’s skin, but ink and blood do come in contact with them, which is why they can be released from the rest of the machine and autoclaved. The tubes can come in many different sizes in relation to the tip where the needles are held being very small to extremely large. The tube end that connects to the tattoo machine is always the same size so that they are interchangeable.
There are basically two types of tips, tubes and grips. 1. Re-usable 2. Disposable
Re-usable: these are basically made of steel and can be used for many times after cleaning and sterilizing it.
Disposable:these are usually made of plastic and rubber and for one-time use only.
Disposable vs steel tubes
Pair your style with something contemporary like tattoos. Make the style and look of yours a surefire head turner. Nothing can beat an intricately designed gorgeous tattoo that suits your body. A tattoo is all you need to complete the look as you take the stage to the latest style tunes.
On the side of steel, there is sturdiness, stiffness and re-usability, provided they are properly cleaned and sterilized, plus the ability to change out any worn parts or change grip size. Some artists feel that the weight of steel tubes helps to balance out the weight of the tattoo machine and provides the artist with a better view of the needles at the tip of the tube. The negative side of steel tubes starts with their need to be appropriately cleaned and sterilized, which, in most tattoo shops, can be one of the dirtiest and most dangerous jobs we encounter. Already laden with biohazardous fluids, there are chemicals in cleaning solutions that can be harmful to one’s health.
Pros to using pre-sterilized disposabletubes include the lack of added weight and fatigue on your hand and the ability to discard the used tube when you are finished, potentially eliminating the need for ultrasonics, autoclaves and even a sterilization area all together.
The cons to using disposable tubes include inconsistent manufacturing such as bad tips where extra plastic can block the hole or tube stems that don’t fit into the tattoo machine or are weak and flex with the weight of the machine. Some artists feel that the vibration of the machine is increased by the use of plastic tubes. The tips on some disposables can be awkward or thick, making it more difficult to see exactly where the needle is in relation to the skin. There is also the issue of potential harm to the ecosystem, due to the added plastic waste in landfills, from all the discarded tubes, but, with proper disinfection, they can be recycled along with other plastics.
Differences in tattoo Ink
Go contemporary while holding on to the beauty of tattoos. Sometimes people get a tattoo just to enjoy something beautiful on their skin, others may do it to remember a transition or special period in their lives. Whatever the reason might be, people are very fond of expressing themselves and their life ideas through the means of body art. When you choose to get a tattoo done, you're set to start your journey into style and art. Without a doubt, there are many high quality and low quality inks that are being used by tattoo artists. Good quality inks would not contain toxic materials that can cause allergies. Also, tattoos made with good quality inks are long lasting and have a better appeal. In short, good quality inks are safe and cause no harm to the body. Tattoo inks might be alcohol or water based.
Types and methods of tattooing : Professional tattoo artists are restricted to FDA-regulated inks, so you do not have to worry about your safety when you are getting tattooed. Most tattoo inks are made of carbon-based pigments. They are regulated by the FDA and they are colored using a variety of natural and manmade components that make the colors stay in one place under the skin and, to the extent possible, prevent fading, running and blurring over time. Carbon based tattoo inks are generally used for artistic tattoos and they create beautiful and outstanding tattoo designs like butterfly tattoos and other lifelike images. If you are considering cosmetic tattooing, such as permanent lipstick, eyeliner or blush, then your tattoo artist who may also be a cosmetic surgeon will likely use an inorganic dye based in compounds like titanium dioxide or iron oxide. Finally, there are completely unconventional tattoo dyes, such as those used in prison tattoos. These can be made of anything from ashes or clay, such as indigenous tribes have been using for thousands of years. Subtle and stylish, tattoos with the right amount of bling are the 'It' accessory of the moment. All eyes will be surely on you. It looks trendy and transitions your style perfectly. We love tattoos when done right. Blending exoticism with the urbane, these tattoos add an edge to an otherwise simple ensemble. Take your style up a notch with these amazing tattoos and feel the difference right away.
Power Supply: Power Supplies and Variety
Okay so there are a ton of power supplies that you can use to tattoo. Each popular brand and non-popular brands offer the same thing, a controlled flow of electricity from their product to your tattoo machine. This enables the person to tattoo at a much speedier rate than trying it by hand. The one thing to know about your power supply is that it really works like the rest of the others on the market. In order for your power supply to run, you need a source of power yourself, outside of that, they all work similarly just with different physical features. Some power supplies do not display the volts that are being outputted. If you have a power supply that does not have a digital output and simply a dial with numbers, don't worry you will need to make sure that your machine is tuned correctly mechanically, dime's width gap, clip cord connected snugly in its appropriate slots, a needle inserted correctly into tattoo tube. Those factors will make a huge difference in performance of your tattoo machine if these steps are not done correctly.
Clip Cord: Clip Cord is a wire that connects the machine from the power supply
Foot Paddle:Foot Paddle is a device connected to power supply and it controls the machine. Traditionally if you press the foot paddle it will run the machine. If you stop pushing the machine will stop. It works as a control Mechanism while tattooing.
