A tuned machine, is a machine which exhibits smoothness, consistency and versatility in its performance, no matter the use (lining, shading...). To be able to tune or repair a tattoo machine and to make that machine do exactly what you want it to do and NOT have to change your style to accommodate the way the machine runs is essential. Most of the time machines do not arrive pre-tuned and ready to tattoo. Some artists prefer different qualities in their machines and will have no choice but to tune and modify the new or old machine to their own needs. This must be done with knowledge of the machine's function, not haphazardly...this is science and physics, not magic. There is a reason for everything. Maintaining consistent performance standards by trouble shooting, tuning, repairing and servicing the machine itself is what will be covered in this publication. The power supply, foot switch and clip cord be covered briefly.
All these things, combined with the artist's technique are what make a perfect result which will not only be seen in the finished tattoo but during the tattooing process as well.
