This is a quality tattoo machine that delivers high accuracy at a price that could not be beat by the competition, making it a great pick for both beginners and professional tattooers.

There are all sorts of cartridge needles that can be used with this machine. These come in a range of sizes from 2.2mm (.08") all the way up to 1.4mm (.055").

The cartridge needles that come with this machine are of great quality. They work with very thin skin and they are easy to load and change.

Tattoo needles come in a wide range of styles and brands. As I've stated before, there is some variation when it comes to cartridge needles. I like to use these needles because they put me at ease—I am confident that the needle I am using is performing up to par. I feel safer using these needles in the tattoo machine compared to generic needle brands.

The pliers and needle holder on this machine are also high quality. These features help the use of this machine last a very long time.

The design of this machine allows for various techniques to be tried. Putting your hand, or paws, on the trigger lets you control the machine much like pushing a real pen would. The grip that the body of the machine comes with, seems to make a great difference here.

The body of the machine is made of aluminum. This is good because it allows for it to be lightweight. This also means that it will be less likely to break.
