I just want to say that it isn't a gun...it is a machine...
tattoo machine. never tattoo gun.

although maybe the one that looks like a gun can be called a gun because it technically is a gun. heh.

I have a tatoo that was not done by the best artist in the world. (He had a great store bought tatoo machine though...) Wish someone woulda encouraged me to not be so excited about getting a tatoo that I would just run out and not do my homework! My second tatoo is muuuuch better!

DO YOUR HOMEWORK PEOPLE! Practice on the fruits and veggies like everyone suggests! I love the idea of using this tatoo machine-gun on leather that would be cool! I have a cow skin drum that I have doodled on with a super fine tip sharpie. I could see the possibilities with this gun... like a whole leather jacket! Oooooo!

The 3rd one goes super super fast because it uses a 9 volt battery. So I made a thing so I can use 2 AAAs instead. But it still works to use a 9 volt if I want to.

Whats the difference? 

not knowing what your talking about  Tongue
a professional calls it a machine, because thats what it is.
calling it a gun is like calling someones mother a wh*re, you just don't do it.

I am definitely impressed...knowing and understanding how it works enough to build one? knowing not to ruin yourself but grapefruits and what not, that is a wonderful thing.

I grew up reading every tattoo magazine I could get my hands on...once upon a time I even looked into tattooing but I don't have the patience, I am happy just drawing flash for people. I've been around tattoos most of my life between my dad and my older brothers, and now my own which i planned out for years and took plenty of time to find a reputable shop with artists I trust enough to hand my flesh over to scar me for life...and one thing I have learned is a tattoo machine is just that, a machine. not a gun. except for that one that looks like a gun.

practice practice practice kid. learn every little bit you can. some artists have waiting lists years long and you can have that too someday but you need to be serious if you want people to take you seriously. save your lunch money and buy parts on ebay you can make a real machine for cheap it seems you have the know how. you seem smart, just be safe. knowing is half the battle.
