      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

dont got a clue mate. i think it is from russia i think that may have been what the builder called himself. it was a long time ago i was just starting to earn money tattooing and this guy came into the studio i worked at, he had some really nice machines i saw the shiney gold heart and being a young man i had to have it. my boss at the time said "i'll by it for you and you can pay me back at the end of the day when youve earnt it. i worked my tits off all that day and when i went to give him the money he took it and threw half back with the machine. that was a good day i felt like such a gangster using it for a day or two then realised pretty quick that it weighs a fucking ton and really isnt practical.

if you look at my other machines i think you can see i learnt my lesson. lol

yep,saveira's builds are decently made,good price,but the coils are lacking the pull,ya may find a decent set o coils from a custom maker or if ya make yer own,will get her running on lower volts with more powerful pull,like the machines,just not the coils,at least on mine,and mine are like 2 years old so he may have changed them or the way he makes em,but i couldn't get mine to run decent on less than 8-9 volts,just my opinion though
