Tattooing is an art form with an interesting history that has spanned centuries, whilst techniques have evolved, certain parts of its past are experiencing a resurgence in popular culture, most notably stick and poke tattoos. Stick and poke tattoos were once only popular amongst certain groups, but that’s fast changing; even a brief search on social media reveals just how popular these tattoos have become in recent years. The stick and poke tattoos that can now be so often seen go back to the simplicity of more ancient tattooing techniques that formed the roots of tattooing as we know it today.
There is a long list of tattoo supplies that an artist will have to hand and rely on each and every session, but there’s one piece of equipment that they will form a particular bond with; their tattoo machine. Over time, and as they learn to master their craft, a tattoo artist will get to know which supplies suit them. From the needles that they plug into their tattoo machine to the aftercare that they offer their clients before leaving the studio with their new personal artwork, many tattoo supplies have a pretty short lifespan and are designed to be chucked out after being used to keep studios a safe environment. The main part of an artist’s toolkit that will stay by their side – or rather, in their hand – in the long run is their tattoo machine. Compared to their disposable and easily replaceable companions, tattoo machines are a serious investment for a tattoo artist to get right. Just like artists in other disciplines will have a pen, pencil or even brush to act as an extension of their arm and outlet for their creativity, a tattoo artist has their machine.
