A good Tattooer can do a great tattoo with crap. But if you are starting out then a good machine will only help you. consistancy is where quality parts co
e in. If your machine will hold a tune and not act wackky while you are tattOoing it will save you many hours of frustration. I own some shifty machines and I use them. The tattoos are fine. BUT my daily drivers are machines that I know are well built with quality parts by tattooers. They never give me problems, and that's what I paid for. A good machine costs some bucks but you will get the return on your investment within a few tattoos. You gotta spend money to make money!

Trying to be cheap and get by with paying the least for a tattoo machine is no different than a client trying to bargain you on a tattoo. Quality doesn't come cheap unless you can build a quality machine from scratch then it was never always cheap. You don't build a good machine out of sheer luck, you do it by studying other well built machines that you work with daily that came long before your first hand built.
How would you know what a good tattoo machine should perform like if you've never had one in your hands?
The best liner I have is one I built using a Spaulding Supreme modeled after a Seth C. Walker that was modeled using the geometry of a Rollomatic which initially was a Spaulding Supreme that had been modified.

Here's the situation: You have a lobby full of clients wanting tattooed. You have a coloring tattoo machine(value $149.00-) that would complete a specific tattoo in 4 hours when it's running at it's best, Or you could buy a quality coloring tattoo machine(value $350.00+) that could do that same exact tattoo in half the time(2 hrs.) because it pushes color much smoother and gets full saturation in single passes with the added bonus of healing better and making the client happier resulting in more return customers. Added bonus of less tiring hands on a slower day, or more time to do other things with that saved time like, drawing, painting, reading books, getting reference for future appointments, hanging that shelf that's been in the corner for 2 months, clean and sterilize some tubes, sweep and mop the lobby because your slightly more expensive tattoo machine cleared the room out.
You decided to stick with the cheaper machine because of whatever reason you desire resulting in you not being able to get possibly 1-2 additional clients seated and tattooed resulting in a large loss of money in one single day. Take a few of those days per month and do the math.
Actually, don't think of it as a loss of money think of it as a surplus. Financial stability is what we all strive for, make it easier on yourself.

i agree, athough i have a machine i paid 150 for that is much better and way more eficient than one i paid 400 for. i think the price isnt as much of a factor as the quality of the machine is. cheers!

Suggesting that Sumi is blacker than Talons because it has smaller particles.

Yes, there most definitely are exceptions. Price is usually a good indicator for a quality machine builder.
