Carbon steel is a softer metal than stainless steel and consequently easier to grind. Speeds of to Hz are common for shaders, and speeds as high as Hz are used for liners.

The Green Monster The planning stages of building the world’s fastest tattoo machine. Shannon Larratt eilon Zentastic The best thing about censorship is it doesn’t work. By making it run at maximum speed, we will learn what the limitations of each part of the machine are.

I’ve also been hearing about carbon plated needles — what are they? If you’re trying to save money, don’t save it on needles, it’s only a few cents and will ultimately affect your work.

We’re not building this machine just to go fast. As the plating starts to wear, it chips and separates from the needles. Any typos in the ghn excerpts are mine.


The most important measurement that can be made on a machine is the speed that it runs at. They could easily fix this, if they could measure and control the speed of their mahcine. Certainly, stainless steel needles are the magaznie needles that should be used for tattooing — but not all stainless steel needles are foing to work well for tattooing.

The quality, or usability of a needle for tattooing cannot be judge solely by what the needle is made of.

Once we know that, we can figure out how to overcome these limitations, and engineer a better running machine… Anyway, Machinegun Magazine is published by Eikon and in theory has a website at machinegunmagazine.

I’ve never seen anything like it… Features include a wild project machine and reader’s machines which reminds me an awful lot of custom car magazines! Its high cost would be its only drawback. As far as getting the magazine, I’m told that this issue is basically all spoken for and has been mailed out to current Eikon customers — contact them for more information.

At a minimum it will encourage them to continue with a second issue. Machine speed determines if a machine will work as a liner or shader.

The process of tattooing causes some wear on the needles. So, a less expensive material that’s eaier to manufacture ends up a lass expensive product. Some are using macchine liner for a shader, and some are trying to outline with a machine that should be a shader.


What’s the difference between carbon steel needles and stainless steel needles? A couple of excerpts: Once we know that, we can figure out how to overcome these limitations, and engineer a better running machine….

Carbon steel has a tendancy to rust very quickly — and would be exposed to liquids during the tattooing process. Stainelss steel is a more expensive product, and very difficult to grind, especially at the diameters and to the tolerances required to make a good needle for tattooing.

The profile and diameter of the needle will determine whether or not a needle will work well for tattooing. No plated needle should ever be used to tattoo.

The website does not appear to be up and running as I write this. Very inexpensive, very low quality. Most tattooers have no idea what speed their machines run at.

But not one that should be used for tattooing. Carbon plated needles are generally nickel or chrome plating over a carbon steel needle — not some kind of machihe plating on a needle.
