Tattooing Machine

Tattooing Machine

Tattooing machines are those machines which are used for creating or designing a tattoo
Tattoo machine is a gun shaped machine that marks skin with ink
With the help of electromagnetic coils the needle bar of the tattoo machine moves up and down in alternation, which drives the pigment or the ink into the skin
In Europe, the tattoo machines are called as tattoo guns but Americans usually call it tattoo machine
The use of the term "tattoo gun" does not go favorably with the tattoo artists in America
Anyone using the term "tattoo gun" is looked down upon
The tattoo machine was invented by Thomas Edison and patented in the United States in the year 1876
It is interesting to note that the machine was patented as an autographic printer and it was only in 1891 that Samuel O'Reilly realized that Edison's invention could be tailored to introduce ink into skin, and patented the tube and needle system
This is the same old system which we use today
The tattoo machines are designed to control the needle depth to almost any degree
It is because of this control, tattooing has become a very accurate art form
