What constitutes a High End tattoo machine? In an industry that has no standard and still sells "entry level" machines and kits - WHEN THE IS NO ROOM FOR "ENTRY LEVEL" IN ART THAT REQUIRES SKILL AND PRECISION? WHERE HEALTH AND CLIENT SAFETY IS ALSO A MAJOR CONCERN!
FOR ANY SUPPLIER TO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS AN ENTRY LEVEL KIT, MACHINE OR PRODUCT IS AN INSULT TO THE CLIENT AND TO MODERN RESPONSIBLE TATTOOING.
What are the credentials of these builders or suppliers? Maybe they have a fancy french name or the all american name which brings romantic images of nostalgic Americana to mind? maybe it's a long German name... maybe they don't tattoo. Just like most of these suppliers who carry these products and push them as what they're advertised.. yet they don't know what is needed to make that machine a shader or liner and they do not take responsibility for the product's function or lack of function, they have no clue how to diagnose or repair any problem! He sells it and then hopes the builder knows what he's talking about, the builder who has made up his own criteria.
Once there was a quote from a builder that went "tattoo machines are a constant learning experience.." . Constant? if he was an expert, and this one seemed to be considered one by the prestigious magazine which interviewed him, he would have learned that there are specific requirements all electromagnetic machines need to function at their highest potential.
These things, these characteristics (specifications, geometry, material, gauges, spring flexibility, coil permeability) are critical because of the dependence that each component has on another. There can be no deviation on many of these objectives. From the current which causes a magnetic field once it passes from the wall to the power supply, into the binding posts, into the terminals... through the wire saturating the steel core (which IS your magnet) causing an attraction of the armature bar, discharging the circuit and allowing the rear spring to take the armature bar back up to the contact screw... all these components have a function which should not be taken for granted. This is only a brief description of function... never mind the specifications on the frame, gauges and material the wire and springs are made from. Yet, what is considered a "high end" machine has substandard objectives. High End?? There is no validity to their claims.
