Step 1 – Arrange the Components
Organize all the parts in front of you. This will give you a better view of everything and help to make sure you assemble it correctly.
Look at the machine first. There should be a contact screw and underneath it a front spring—these should be at a distance similar to the thickness of a coin. The distance between these two points is what controls the line you’re tattooing. If it’s off, this could ruin a tattoo. Correct it by turning the drive of the screw which will increase or decrease the distance.
Step 2 – Prepare the Needles
Check your needles. These should have been pre-sterilized and supplied in an unopened package. Inspect them for any flaws. Bent or dull needles can cause more bleeding, leading to a painful tattoo and, potentially, scarring.
The tube, which is where you hold the machine, should also be inspected. There are two types: disposable and autoclaved. These should be supplied in a sealed package. If the package is opened, discard it. Insert the needle into the tube.
Step 3 – Assembly
Once the needle is in the tube, you need to insert it in the tube slot. Slide it up enough to tighten the wingnut slightly. The wingnut is what connects the tube with the machine.
Make sure the eye loop of the needle is turned to the left when you insert the armature bar nipple ring. This will ensure the needle is inserted correctly, If not correct, it could lead to a very painful skin piercing, with no ink.
Set the correct length of the needle—meaning the distance from the tip of the tube to the needle. Tighten the two screws to secure it. I recommend keeping it at between 0.04 of an inch and 0.07 of an inch.
A useful tip is to place a rubber band around the coils. This will help to stabilize the needles, resulting in a much cleaner line.
