How Many Machines Do You Own?

25 posts in this topic

Hi i get the feeling that quite a few members might have a few tattoo machines and i wonder what the numbers may be. I am shamed to say my first 2 machines where chinese crap which i still have lol. I use to twin buzzbrush machines 1 liner and 1 colour packer they are easy to use machines and i love them.

I love my machines and i think a dedicated B&G machine would be the icing on the cake. I would like to know how many machines members have they use and love surely there comes a point when you can only use so many machines for diffrent jobs and then you just become a collector :D

I've got 7 that i use and a couple in bits.

3 mickey bee from starline (the mass produced ones), 1 hand built mickey bee i scored from ebay (great solid colour packer, very powerful) and 3 from buzzbrush (2 liner and a shader).

I'm now looking to get a couple of rotaries, just gotta wait till after xmas.

I got about 14 in my selection box, from Mao thro to D Fowler to J Dodds and two (real) M Bees LOL........and various others which all do what there supposed to....Some tattooists will collect one off machines to be used as talking points, or to be put in a case.....Don't matter how many machines you have, its the quality of what you got.....and that has fuk all to do with how much you paid for it,,,,,Peace,P.
