Since 1997 we are proud to support you in the more technical aspect of this job. For 20 years we have been showing respect for this form of art manufacturing with passion your tattoo machines.
Since 1997 we have been combining handcraftsmanship and the better solutions offered by technology to manufacture our tattoo machines.
From the beginning we used a frame manufacture process that was rarely employed before and that many other producers considered excessive as it was highly sophisticated and too much expensive to be applied in this field.
The production process requires C.N.C. machines to obtain the frame from a single block. Therefore metal is neither welded nor bent resulting in a more precise frame with reduced vibrations, also thanks to the choice of brass and first quality iron alloys.
The strongly supported choice of C.N.C. machines proved to be the right decision and others started to use the same method.
lso the Coils, entirely manufactured in our workshop, are the result of a steady research and testing.
Instead of the common used plastic we used for the first time the bakelite spool (the best material for this kind of application) and a copper wire (OFC) to wound it. In this way, coils guarantee efficiency increases over time as being designed to work at a lower voltage they don't heat up.
Lower voltage + less heat = Great efficency! Coils can be personalized with thematic illustrations by several artists. It has always been one of our main aims to produce and assemble our tattoo machines with prime quality materials.
Our binding posts and contact screws are made of copper and 825 silver. We chose these metals for their excellent electrical conductivity, a very important feature for devices that work at a lower voltage.
Springs are the result of many years of experience and are made of very high quality carbon steel that makes them more elastic and resistant.
Springs can have different thickness allowing us to perfectly calibrate our tattoo machines according to your needs.
We are among the few to take care of details.The finishes of frames are optained with homemade techniques such as burnishing, polishing and brass ageing to provide custom versions of all models that make each tattoo machine exclusive.
Each SUNSKIN tattoo machines component is manufactured in our workshop floor providing a 100% MADE IN ITALY product.
After every calibration and final test all our tattoo machines are handmade numbered and come with a certificate of originality that is filled and signed to guarantee authenticity. Tattoo machines are sold with their original case. You can find our authorized dealers at www.sunskintattoo.com.
