The one you build yourself! You can hook up 2 nice ones for around 300.00.

It boils down to preference, but a few worth checking out are Infinite irons, Time Machine, and Eikon. I know an artist that uses Green Monsters daily and loves them. As far as building your own goes. Metals for frame under 20 bucks, hardware and coils pre-made from supplier under 50 bucks, time spent designing, cutting, filing, sanding, etc. PRICELESS, but worth it if you get it just right.

I've been using a Pulse (shader) and time machine (Liner) but as posted above, my best machine is a hand made, several hours getting just right, absolutely flawless piece of metal. Most impressed with the Pulse though...

Legion, you have been bitching about your crap Time Machines for months on several forums... Isn't it time to invest in some real tools of the trade? If they suck as bad as we all know they do, why have you not made the effort to upgrade?

I agree with everyone who says build your own. But if you are not a mechanic, I would agree with the Paco Rollins Semi-Mags. They are the only machine I have ever owned that I did not do anything to except re-spring them. Bent and Welded steel Frames have there drawback, but Paco's machines are great. As a Tattoo Artist, I feel you should know your tools intimately, so I myself start with a Paulo Fernando Frame and for under $200 can build a "Bulldog" that will last for ever and outperform the $400 - $500 Supply house Bulldogs. Also. Tyler Mason, Sells Fantastic Bronze Frame, w/coil kits for $100. You get or make your Binders, A-Bar, Springs and for again $200 you have a machine that will last for life. Tyler's Castings are Premium, and his crew is Helpful. I love Brass and Bronze, so Tyler's are the best. Paulo's Castings are for Iron fans, the Best. Perfect Geometry, indestructable.

I wouldn't rule out a Supreme either. They may seem kinda junky but they work well and can be set up for either job. I have some badass machines but I still use a supreme for most of my small needle line work. Workhorse Pilot is also under 300 and it's a great machine.
