    Do u have to change the needle all the time?

  12. CarlosMFuentesJr says:

    That ‘bar’? Yes, that’s the armature bar.
    Secondly, this isn’t an EXACT placement for a needle, that’s ridiculous. There are better ways to test needle depth than placing the needle 1/16 of an inch from the tip of your tube. That tells you NOTHING about how far your throw is depending on the stroke of the machine.
    Third, this fool needs to wear gloves when assembling a tattoo machine before he gives someone hepatitis…that should be step ONE in a tutorial.

  16. XOGoldFingerOX says:

    many mistakes .. man just take the tube and a needle and let them fall into the tube….

  18. MrSatanochio says:

    Maybe because he`s being filmed and knows he`s going to be watched by a lot of people. Who knows ? :P

  19. raider2661 says:

  25. ArchShop says:

    is the shaking a result of years of tatoo machine vibration or a red flag saying this is not the guy you want to do your tatoo…
