blinged out coil wraps, chromed frame with skulls and flames??? that's classic??

It just seems too chinese for me. i agree, it's not what it looks like that matters. but that's why most good machines look like old steal traps, not shiny doo-dad's my girlfriends would think is cute.

i guess i just favor a more hardened functional look.

but to each his own

designed by Mike Wilson!!!!!!!!! and hand engraved by Eric Inksmith!!! It's a serious link to the tattoo lineage before us! Coil covers are "fishscales" (not really fishscales) which were the standard in the old spaulding and rogers machines of the 70s and 80s etc. the frame style is completely a nod to the past. "looking" like an old machine and being designed by Mike Wilson and Eric Inksmith are two totally different things!

although im pretty sure the engraving is also a nod to the past, and a pretty tongue in check one at that, the machines look exactly like they are supposed to look, and i am SURE run just as good as anything in the lucky arsenal.

the reason the OLD machines, that ran like lawnmowers and spit and sputtered everywhere looked like they did are because those were made with the tools available at the time, hand tools, metal scraps...etc. people that make machines NOW that look like old buckets of rusty dogs&!t, although probably pretty functional, its purely an aesthetic thing and to me, an easy way out.

well my bad. my whole point was look at soba's, infinites, sharpz, aaron cains, etc.,etc. and u'll see anything like em. i've never ever ran across anything like these other then chinese machines made for scratchers on ebay. i'm still a youngbuck to all this.

And i never doubted how they run.

i still am not a fan of a machine my gf would like though.

its just all part of tattoo history, and it started a great dialogue on why they are and aren't cool. its all personal preference, and cool to see a nod to the past no matter how cheesy.
cheers!

I always wondered.... When was it ever agreed upon that foil fish scale coil wrap was to become a universal standard for the tattoo industry for years? It's like the ugliest, tackiest thing ever invented

Hate anything chrome don't care who built it. That's just me I hate spaulding & Rogers and anything that looks like it. Sure these machines function great no disrespect to the builders of these irons. Yes the coil covers are awsomely bad and super tackey. I think I'd buy one.

It was the beginning of the holographic age, those things were new and cool to look at in those days just like the cheap holograph sticker in Cracker Jacks. Not so much nowadays, but I can still appreciate the old school flare with a twist.
They probably run really well, and that's all that truly matters.
It's better than friction tape when getting water dispersant on it. It's like that s&!t melts and gets nasty as f@#k.
