RE:t tech

my only experience with ttech was with a thunder and as much as i wanted to like them due to the price i couldn't...

1. i always felt the tension in the needle was slack compared to the official hawk cartridge and it just didnt make me comfortable

2. this was my biggest gripe, ttech simply have no barrier in their cartridge, after bigger pieces of colour and using the lighter water shades in my B&G the ink WOULD travel up the tube and contaminate the grip and in my opinion no matter how miniscule the amount that travelled up the stem i just wasnt prepared to continue using them

RE:t tech

I know exactly what you mean and so does Cheyenne. They now sell the new cord with a jump converter in it to help with start up. Painful pleasures sells them and I think anyone else who sells hawk stuff has them too.

RE:t tech

T-TECH are good quality CARTRIDGE, but yes have the problem about the ink flow up and contaminated the TUBE becouse no BARRIER

i don understand why they done do some barrier same as HAWK, maybe they develop something different but with same effect, in CHINA u can do easy this stupid barrier without any big cost,

RE:t tech

The T-tech system works great, hawk style cartridge system without the hawk prices, it's also nice to beable to use them on any rotary machine of your choice. I did email them recently and word has it they are going to develop a fully disposible system that we may see in about 3 months.

RE:t tech

T-Tech is cheap and dirty. I prefer to support the inventors instead of helping the knock offs. The cost you are saving is pennies when you consider your time here. You're time is why you switched from needles to a hawk in the first place, don't fall back into the same routine of price shopping for minimal savings and less quality. You spent the money on a hawk so you know quality don't regress and use inferior products with your quality machines. It's like hearing you guys bought a Lamborghini and then put 1980 style Cragars on it. In the long run when you burn your hawk out you don't have to try and lie to them when you want them to cover your warranty because you weren't using their cartridges.

RE:t tech

T-tech is not a rip off, their cartridges are compleatly different from what Chyenne makes. T-Tech made it possible to use a cartrige system with any rotary. I agree if you own a Hawk use the hawk needles, they are the needles made for that machine. But if you have a different rotary and want to give the cartridge system a go, then T-Tech is a great option. Thier needles are sterile, so to say they are dirty is just not true.

RE:t tech

I have been using Cheyenne Thunder since April 2012 as well as the TTech needle...though I was really scared while using TTech needle on the Cheyenne while working on a huge toe to buttocks full leg piece one night i just saw the inks is going inside my cheyenne machine to the motordrive...so i stopped using the TTech needles on my cheyenne ...since then I just use original cheyenne needle because I am afraid that the warranty will be void according to cheyenne warning...on using non original needle....now I still use my TTech needles for my Spektra and other FKI coil machines...I am not saying this to promote anything...I just want to share real experiance here...thank you...

RE:t tech

I don't like Ttech needles. The ink creeps up usually and not a fan of their tapers either. I still prefer the cheyenne cartridges over these guys even though it is a little more expensive. I think these ttech tips have some contamination issues. I personally would suggest to avoid them altogether.

RE:t tech

Oh my God...I can't belive this shit, you must be kidding me right?....you're whining about prices of the needles...what the hell is your problem...you get 300$/€ or even more for a tattoo and maybe you waste 3 or 4 cartriges for it...and you still whine like a f*** bit*h how pricey they are...if you're that kind of a person who is a cheap ass mother**** then you should quit with tattooing and start drawing baby drawings with watercolors - couse watercolors are cheap ;)
You pay for Cheyenne Thunder machine for the whole set somewhere around 600€/$ and you're sorry for 10x cartriges for 20-30€/$...you must be kidding me...that's a real fortune there...yep...but hey...so, let's do the math:

Money you get for tattoo: 650€/$
Needle cartriges wasted: 4 (let's say: 5liner, 9 shader, 13mag curved, 27mag curved)
Price for 1 needle cartrige: 30$/€ :10 = 3€/$

So you spent 4 needles for 1 tattoo...that's somewhere between 12-15€/$. But you got 650€/$ for a tattoo.
650 - 15= 635€/$

OK to be fair lets count other stuff you waste for one tattoo...gloves, foil and other shit...maybe everything comes to 50€/$ and you still got clean 600€/$ in your pocket...what the fuck is your problem? I tell you what it is...

That's called being GREEDY!

RE:t tech

Robertsavage, I agree. I have had the same problem with the T-Tech cartriges... I noticed the ink flowed up the grip and I think a tiny bit got in my drive!! I am now wondering how to sterilize the drive! Anyone, any suggestions??? Dry heat? Take it apart?

RE:t tech

BTW, I am using the hawk thunder. And I wiped as much as I could with CaviCide... But I don't want to take a chance...

RE:t tech

after finally getting to use t-tech i found that my hybrids could not run them and that was the reason that i was curious to find out more about them.But since neuma fell off the face of the earth i switched to cheyenne thunder and must say im not a fan of t tech and much rather use the cheyenne needles and pay what they cost besides how much dont u make out of a tattoo if u find the need to bitch on the price then ur no better than the customers people complain about when they are looking for a cheaper price i feel that t tech dose not have the feel of the cheyenne and like the cheyenne way more t tech does not have a good grip on change out aswell

RE:t tech

Inkjecta makes grips for cartridge systems that can be used on any machine and sell for about 30$ they are stainless steel and can be autoclaved and come in various colours and are top quality.

RE:t tech

.

sorry to ask a maybe very stupid question, but what's the point in using a cartridge system on any other machine than a cheyenne or maybe another machine where you just can't avoid it and then have to autoclave a special grip, instead of using way less expensive completely disposable stuff without the hassle of autoclaving? or just sticking to the old completely stainless grip/tip-combos including all the autoclaving job?

i simply don't quite get the point. it would make sense if the cartridges were less expensive than a completely disposable set, but the other way round it sounds like another quite a bit ridiculous attempt to pull a lot more money out of the pockets of hard working people. besides that- a cartridge system wouldn't even save money or time via using less coil machines for a single tattoo, as you have the hassle of readjusting the set points on your power supply with keeping the same machine but using different cartridges. if you got a power supply with presets it is completely useless- then you can use more machines and be way faster than with changing cartridges.

so please enlighten me and tell me wtf for i should buy expensive stuff that will slow me down.

RE:t tech

in my own opinion:
there isn't.

If i were to travel, adn carry one machine that can do it all, then swaping needle groups would be easier, less expensive considering the aseptic bonus of cleaning one machine. Then there is the need to steralive the one grip as you pointed out.
There is a such thing as chemical sterilization, but that may be a regeonal thing.

Sinch some powerful rotaries can do it all, then they are the only likely machine to work for this, again that's my opinion.
I run multipal machines with multipal settings per group intentionaly. So i was really excited about this idea, but instead of investing in a cartrige system, i bought and autoclave.
Later when i have more funds maybe I'll go back to throw aways.

i'm travelling rather often- without car- and i personally think, it doesn't make much difference in weight carrying around at least 5 machines and very light disposals- i wouldn't do that with an autoclave (too heavy even in the smallest versions) and everything else with chemicals is definitely NOT sterilisation but desinfection- and that's not enough.

if you would have only one machine- what would do if it fucks up (murphy's law) seriously on the road?

so i think, even when it sounds like a good idea for your homebase- i still have serious doubts- it is absolutely crap for the road.
