How does a tattoo machine work:

Now that you know the background, it is time learn how to use a tattoo machine. If you eventually want to become a great tattoo artist, learning how to use the tattoo machine properly is extremely important.

The first basic step is to learning to hold a tattoo machine. It`s important to make sure you choose a machine you`re comfortable with, because the size and weight of the tattoo machine can make quite a difference.

The proper way to grip a tattoo machine is to grip it around the needle tube. Just hold of the knurled grip much like you would hold a pencil and be sure the open side of the Tattoo Needle tip is facing away from you. It is normal for beginners to take some time to become comfortable with holding the machine as well as to develop the muscles necessary to comfortably hold the machine for hours.

You can start with testing your skills, once you have mastered the endurance required to tattoo and found a comfortable pencil grip.

As in a pencil grip, grab the knurled grip of the tattoo machine and place it comfortably in your hands. Always remember to have the bulk of the tattoo machine over top the back of your hand. Much like the way you would do if you were writing on the customer`s skin with a pen, the palm of your hand should be resting on the surface of the skin then proceed with your art.
