    Neotat vivace or spektra halo 2?

    I took 2 years out from Coils a few Years back....I have ran Rots that most folk have not heard of, I was also on a few Rot Prototype teams, lots of Folks trying to replicate a Coil liner...I have ran Dan Kubins, all of them, Francos Bishops, crazy shit like the Action Rotary and Dino Cassarins Builds, as well as all of Dales aka Rotaryworks Builds.Even the Killerbee and the newer Spektra Models....However...To answer your question, it is simple....What is your budget, how do you work and what hit do you like...Simple...
  2. Needle gauge, throw and depth need to be considered as well as other factors to prevent blow-outs or ink migration...All comes down to the tattooists technique and experience tbh...

    I think I was last on here about 18 mos ago, so much has changed, once I get back to the Old Screen we will be good as the Old Screen was easier to navigate, does the Old Screen still exist..?

    I need ideas for new tattoos

    Long time no see....
  6. Hey Nippyneedle,

    Im looking into purchasing a new machine and want to go with cartridges. I currently use a triple conrod Rotaryworks for lining and a bishop capo for shading and color (which i rarely do) with a critical cx2 power supply. Im willing to spend about 600 USD but would want a machine that can line and shade. I would also prefer to use disposable tubes. I see that the spectra X is highly reviewed in other forums but I've also been looking at the Hawk Thunder and Hawk pen.  What do you think about these machines is there another machine you would recommend? Any other useful information on the pros/cons to cartridges?

    Hi From California

    Social Media has had an impact....
  9. There are too many "factors" involved with your question...For instance, how many clients will you have per day, how many tattoos will you complete in a day, what is the "hourly" rate in your area.....End of the day, if it feels right, go for it, if not, then don't....

    Operating The Storm A 100 Rotary Machine

    The Storm is a copy of the Swiss, so, apart from being a cheaper version and not as efficient as the original, you are asking for info on a Coil Forum Bro.Maybe someone has ran one..
