Machines

Mike, I know you use the hybrid mostly, but my question is when you do switch back to the coils I was wondering what type of spring set-up you have for your color machine. For some reason I am having problems with mine. I can not seem to get it to run as smooth as my liner or Blk-Gry machine.I have bought several books and talked to numerous people.There methods never seem to give me the smooth color blending.I'm using a Seth Ceferri with 18 on front and 20 on back.Am I just missing something because this is really getting on my nerves.Any help would be great.Also who would I contact about the rotary?Thanks again for your time.

I don't use the Neuma or the Neuma Hybrid anymore! As far as your questions pertaining to the springs...I wish I could help,but i don't really know the answer to that one. As far as good rotary machines,look into the Hyper Stigma or Ink Jecta. I've been using the Hyper Stigma lately and have been lovin the results,just got the Ink Jecta in the mail today and it feels good,i Haven't tried it yet,hopefully within a day or two,ill post up my thoughts once i use it.

RE:Machines

Neuma was a great starter tool for me, and I don't regret using them for as long as i did. But the time came when i needed something more. I know how i want a piece to look nowadays and instead of taking 8 hours to get there,i could do it in 5 hours,and the tattoo being more solid looking,which has been most important to me lately.If the same tattoo could be done in less time and more solid without losing quality..I'm Sold!
Issues i had with Neuma is that it was so soft,you would have to layer and layer to get something smooth,but layering and layering takes longer and you have more chances of a rough heal. If i turned up the machine to try and go faster then it didnt work out so good,the Hybrid, i did a few pieces i was happy with,but the healing of them i wasn't to satisfied on. I could go on and on.the bottom line is there is new machines that work better! Hyper Stigmas are great! I also just had the chance to use the rotary Ink Jecta and holy shit,its rad!! So now I'm torn between the two but need to work more with the Ink Jecta to really have an opinion.
