Tattoo kits for sale: coil vs rotary kits

If you know anything about the instruments that are used in the craft, you probably know that there are two main types of guns, coil and, rotary ones. Here’s how they differ.


Coil tattoo guns work on electromagnetic coils. The two main disadvantages it brings is that it makes the machine really loud and heavy.


Coil guns buzz like a swarm of angry bees that see you eating their honey. This can frighten some clients who are new to the world of tattoos. Rotary guns do not produce quite that level of noise.


In addition to that, rotary guns are way less heavy than their counterparts. This allows for more movement and less finger cramp when using the machine. They are more versatile as well, as the needles that are provided in a professional tattoo kit that we offer for sale can transform your gun from a liner to a shader in a split of a second.
