using cartridges - -1

I have been wanting to switch to cartridges. I see several instances where it would be benificial to switch needles during a tattoo. For instance, I personally like line width variation within pretty much most pieces. I would much rather spend more on setup to have the ability to switch back and forth between a five liner and a seven. Rather than using the five and then bolding out the line with a second pass. its both time consuming, as well as not as clean as using the correct size liner. And so on an so forth. Thats just an example. My question is who uses them and is it worth it?

If you just walk through a convention and take a look at what people are using, and look at peoples set ups on social media, you will notice the cartridges are taking over and it is due to not only the convenience, but they are more precise. So yeah give them a try! You'll spend a few extra dollars for them but its worth it.

Hello mike was wondering using cartridges how many cartridge grips do you need, if your a busy shop that can get quite expensive buying enough to tattoo all day, I go through about 30 tubes a day, I'm not sure if i would like the disposable cartridge grips , do you use disposable or autoclavable hope this makes sense Ty for your time

hey there, Mike is so right. i think the standard needles are a thing of the past, more and more artist are changing the old standards and getting up on the ease of using cartridges. i only run them and have for about four years now and i am so glad i made the change,as for metal or disposable grips make the move to disposable and watch how much time you save. the quality of disposable grips are so much better now. i did miss the feel and weight of the metal ones but you will love the ease more. i use either tat soul or bishop . cant go wrong with either one. i have been using bishop here for the past six months and love the feel of that grip. hope this helps
