Tattoo Machine’s Trick


The working principle and debugging method of the machine
The machine goes through the intermediate voltage regulator and transformer to convert the external 220V AC power into DC power with a voltage value between 3-20V. Under the DC voltage of 3-20V, an instantaneous voltage is generated between the two main coils and the electrospray point. The suction and spray functions, with the help of the reciprocating movement of the spring leaf of the tattoo machine, drive the tattoo needle to produce high-speed up and down, reciprocating movements. The biggest advantage of this working method is that since it is not driven by a motor, there is no need to consider the loss of motor or motor power, so it can produce high speed and high torque. When working, the tattoo needle pierces the epidermis at high speed and evenly, and the tattoo pigment is implanted into the basal layer of the epidermis, allowing the pigment to be permanently fixed on the epidermis, forming exquisite patterns and text with various pigment combinations, thereby modifying the skin and covering epidermal scars. .

Detailed steps for debugging the tattoo machine

Step 1: Hold the needle tube of the tattoo machine with your left hand, hold the bottom of the "main base" with your index finger, and press the "needle tube fixing button" with your thumb.
Step 2: Connect the AC power supply and connect the connecting cable to the tattoo machine jack.
Step 3: Use the thumb and index finger of your right hand to pinch the "adjustment fixing button" and adjust it to the "relaxed" state.
Step 4: Hold the "pressure regulating button" with the thumb and index finger of your right hand. While adjusting the "pressure regulating button", step on the "foot pedal" with your right foot.
: Off" to start the tattoo machine.
Step 5: When adjusting the "pressure adjusting button" with the thumb and index finger of your right hand, be careful not to leave or relax the "pressure adjusting button" with your right hand until the tattoo machine produces the best speed and sound. At the same time, touch the front end of the magnetic strip and the bottom of the needle bar fixing button with the thumb of your left hand. Use your left thumb to feel the maximum vibration (until you feel numb or itchy). At this time, the tattoo machine is in the best working condition.
Step 6: When debugging the tattoo machine, we need to pay attention to the stroke of the tattoo machine (the stroke means the distance between the magnetic strip and the magnetic coil of the tattoo machine). The stroke must be at least 2.5MM. This is because this can ensure that the needle has enough telescopic distance to ensure that the needle can penetrate into the bottom layer of the epidermis when it is extended, and can retract into the needle tube to pick up pigment when it is retracted.
Step 7: When the tattoo machine is in the best condition, leave the "foot switch" with your right foot - cut off the power supply. The tattoo machine is in a stopped state. Use the thumb and index finger of your right hand to adjust the "adjustment fixing button" to the tightest state and lock it. "Pressure adjustment button".
Note: After completing the above seven steps, restart the tattoo machine and test it! Best working condition! That is to say, the debugging of the tattoo machine is completed. When the tattoo machine uses a professional voltage regulator, the voltage used for secant is 9-12V, and 12-14V is used when coloring or fogging.
Installation pattern
: body acupuncture
Step 1: Adjust the tattoo machine to the best condition A: The sound is loud, dense and stable; B: High speed and high torque.
Step 2: Check whether the tattoo needle tip is damaged.
Step 3: Use special equipment to remove the "needle tip fixing screw" and remove the needle.
Step 4: Insert the tattoo needle bar from the upper entrance of the needle tube, and hang the upper part of the tattoo needle bar on the "needle bar fixing button" to fix it.

Common problems when getting a tattoo

1. Does the needle skip during tattoo operation?
Answer: Stitch skipping occurs when the needle tip is slightly hung during operation. This is because the machine has not been tested well. One reason is that the stroke of the tattoo machine is too short and the needle tip does not have enough space to expand and contract, causing the needle tip to vibrate in place and cause the needle to fail. Disadvantages: The second is that the needle tip extends too short and the needle is inserted too deep, causing the needle tip to directly contact the skin when retracted, hindering the needle. Second, the speed of the machine is not adjusted fast enough, and the needle is moved too fast, causing the skin to hang. Lines have jump points.
2. What are the causes of discoloration or lack of color?
Answer: First, the acupuncture is too shallow. The needle insertion depth only reaches above the basal layer of the epidermis. The elastic fibers of the skin cannot effectively lock the pigment particles. Due to the metabolism of the skin, the layers fall off, causing the pigment to become lighter. Second, the surface layer of the skin is polished. Too broken, that is, a wound
Yin Liumei: The face is too big, the elastic fibers are too damaged, the wound is not easy to recover, and the pigment particles cannot be effectively locked. Therefore, when tattooing, it is not the number of times of coloring, the brighter the color, but the least number of times, the smallest wound reaches the most saturation. color.
3. Who is not easy to get a tattoo?
Answer: People with severe heart disease, blood infectious diseases, and people with low immunity are not easy to get tattoos. Some people may experience dizziness, nausea, chills, sweating, etc. after receiving tattoos. This is caused by the nervousness of the tattoo recipient. , you can pause the tattooing, take a rest, and relieve the tension.
4. Do some people experience itching on their skin after getting a tattoo?
Answer: Itchy lines are a normal phenomenon. Because new cells grow and the cells merge with pigment granules, itching will naturally occur. It will disappear naturally after a period of time. Do not scratch hard during this period.
5. Why do heavily fogged areas easily fester when getting a tattoo?
Answer: I believe that many people will get ulcers due to excessive tattooing when doing tattoos. Most people find it strange (why I applied it very lightly, but it still rotted). In fact, the reason is very simple. Everything is our fault. You have absorbed wrong ideas when getting a tattoo. Many people who teach tattoos will tell you: "Don't apply the fog too hard, otherwise it will fester..." That's it
: This sentence made us wander on the road to fogging for a long, long time...
Here is a simple example for your reference. In the case of a tattoo machine, under normal circumstances, after the power is turned on, one minute is calculated as 20,000 times. The tattoo machine is equipped with six needles, then it will Exactly 120,000 injections were injected. If we inject back and forth for one minute on a two-centimeter square piece of skin, we have already inflicted a total of 120,000 wounds on this two-centimeter square piece of skin. If this area should be heavily fogged ( Then, it will take at least five back and forth to completely blacken this two centimeter square piece of skin, so 12X5 is exactly 600,000 wounds, and if the force can be appropriately increased, it can be done up to three times. Black injection, 12 It has been (gently) broken by you.
6. Can tattoo wounds be exposed to water?
Answer: Yes. After getting a tattoo, you should rinse the pigment from the wound area with clean water and carefully wash the pigment from the tattoo area to avoid bacterial infection in the wound. However, after each bath and dry the body, the tattoo area should be wiped with tissue or cotton.
: Completely absorb the water, then apply anti-scar cream immediately, wipe off the anti-scar cream and spray antibacterial agent after 20 minutes, and reapply once every 8 hours.
7. How to properly care for the wound after tattooing?
Answer: After getting a tattoo, the skin at the tattooed area has been extremely damaged. The wound needs very careful care. The most important thing is to keep it dry. You can take a normal bath, but if the wound area is stained with soapy water, remember to rinse it with clean water. Clean and dry the tattooed area with tissue paper, and then apply anti-scar ointment (recommended) for about three or four days. You can stop applying the ointment after the wound scabs and hardens, but you still need to take care of it carefully.
8. How long does it take for the wound to heal after tattooing?
Answer: The wound on the tattoo site will fully recover within a week.
9. Is it okay to complete the fogging of a large pattern in one go?
Answer: It’s best not to finish it all at once, because when we cut the lines on a picture, the skin of the entire picture will already be (red). If you fog it immediately, it will be (red on top of red), and then it will be yours. People can't stand it, but your skin can't stand it. In the end, you almost have to endure it, and your body moves like a caterpillar, and the fog can't be played beautifully. In addition, the secant fight The fog is completed once and has no effect on the pattern...
10. The biggest summer tattoo
: what is the problem? What is the solution?
Answer: It is indeed harder to take care of a tattoo in summer than in winter, because it is easier to sweat a lot in summer, but if you can keep one general principle in mind, there will be no problem, that is (keep it dry) if you sweat a lot, you must wash it with water. , and then apply anti-scar cream. The advantage of anti-scar cream is that it is less likely to be infected by bacteria. The role of antibacterial agents is to isolate pathogenic microorganisms from forming conjunctiva on the skin surface.

Reasons why the tattoo machine does not start

serial number
cause of issue

The elastic rod does not touch the contact point of the inclined spring piece
Loosen the screw of the elastic rod, rotate the elastic rod downward until it reaches the contact point, then rotate 180�-360�, and tighten the screw to lock the elastic rod.

The power switch is not on
After connecting to 220V AC power, turn on the power switch and the indicator will light up in red.

The adjustment button (VOLTAGE) is at the zero position, and the V meter pointer is also at the zero position.
Slowly rotate the adjustment button clockwise, and the V meter pointer is also rotating at the same time. The V meter pointer should stop at 10V-12V.

If the elastic rod touches the front spring contact, if the touch is too tight, it will not start, and it is more likely to cause a power short circuit. When the power switch is turned on, the indicator light will turn green and there will be no voltage.
Loosen the elastic rod screw and
Yin Liumei: Loosen the elastic rod upwards from the spring contact, re-adjust the elastic rod to touch the contact, and rotate 180 � -360 �. The power supply is tripped and short-circuited, and the indicator light turns green. Turn the switch off and on again, and the indicator light turns red.

Often when working, I accidentally pull the power cord and leave the joint position.
Check whether the foot switch and the plug of the power cord are in place

After the work was completed, when cleaning and disinfecting the tattoo machine, the thread on the machine was broken (dislocated)
Check whether the wires on the tattoo machine are dislocated (broken). Call an electrician to solder the wires on.

When the power is turned on, the trip indicator light turns green.
Check whether the plug on the power cord and the foot switch are broken. If it is broken, it may touch the wire (short break). If the wire is broken, use a soldering iron to solder it and it will be OK!
