Tattoo tools and supplies: Body art and modification

If you are in the market for tattoo or piercing supplies, you’ve come to the right place. We can provide you with all the information you need to use, buy, and sell equipment, piercing supplies, and body jewelry. Beginning with tattoo equipment, it’s important to research the types of equipment that are out there and the pros and cons to using each type. Tattoo guns, needles, tubes, machines, and inks are all key elements to starting a studio, shop, parlor or business. The guns and machines are usually hand crafted or homemade.

Body piercing equipment, needles and body jewelry

As far as piercing supplies go, the selection is unlimited. You can buy gold, silver, or titanium body jewelry in all types of exotic designs and shapes. As a supplier or piercing shop, you will want to carry all types of piercing supplies so your customers have options to choose from. The piercing guns and needles are just as important as the exotic body jewelry because your customers will want their piercing to be as painless and infection-free as possible. Make sure to sterilize   guns and chairs after every use. Piercing needles should be thrown away, assuming they’re disposable.

Tattoo guns, machines, power supplies and pigment inks

When it comes to needles, tubes, and inks for designs, make sure you know what products go together. For tubes and needles, they usually come in disposable forms, a great option for the customer because they know their experience will be hygienic and pleasant. As for the inks, it is crucial to carry a wide variety of colors so you as the artists can create rich and unique designs. Another important piece of equipment to purchase is the thermal image copier. This machine will help create a beautiful and consistent tattoo from any hand drawn design or stencil.

As a tattoo artist, you go through a lot of supplies. One of these supplies is tattoo ink. For tattoo artists of all experience levels, tattoo ink is the lifeblood of your business or hobby, obviously. If tattoo ink is starting to break your budget, then read on for tips on finding cheap tattoo ink.
