Why Use Rotary Machines?

If you're looking into buying a new tattooing machine, you may have noticed there are two main types of machines — coil and rotary. Which one should you go with? The answer primarily depends on what art style you work with and what you need from your new machine.

If you associate a buzzing sound with tattooing, you've likely come into contact with a coil machine. An electromagnetic current powers the needles in this machine, producing a strong, hammer-like movement. While coil machines are great for shading, some artists consider their movements to be too choppy and uneven to get the desired smooth lines.

Rotary tattoo machines are quieter and more versatile than coil models. The tattoo machine uses a small motor to power the needles. It is more low maintenance and provides the artist with a smoother, more fluid needle movement. Unlike coils, rotary machines can produce both shading and line work, making them a great all-around choice for beginner artists who aren't ready to invest in multiple machines.

Even experienced professionals will agree there's a lot to love about a rotary machine, especially a high-quality, lightweight, portable pen-style as produced by Kwadron. The Equaliser™ Proton will provide you with everything you need to start your tattooing without breaking the bank.

    Kwadron proton

    The pen seems to be of good quality however I personally am not a fan of it. It seems to have to be run at Damn near full tilt to get results with it. I have a Cheyenne machine so maybe that spoiled me I don't know. I just thought I'd leave my opinion so that others could make an educated purchase before shelling out their money

    The hen I ordered is great a couple of my artist buddies use this and gave me a good review on this so I decided to jump out the window and order it ... I'm extremely happy I did but like my head line said the color that was sent to me was wrong but it still is great

    great for b&g and blending!

    Posted by chad taylor on Nov 7th 2017

    I have recently purchased this pen after trying several different rotary machines and this one is by far my favorite, it feels very ergonomic in the hand and has given me a bit more of an intuitive experience of tattooing, I do several styles of tattooing , this machine I feel is very suited for black and grey , and color blending ( which I do a lot of!). The fit and finish is also top notch! One small gripe you will need to clean the machine with madacide, alcohol or the like because it may be covered in a light greasy film. Otherwise a very good value and experience in tattooing!

    Perfect for tight spots.

    Posted by Luke Morgan on Jun 8th 2017

    This machine works well, as a rotary should. It's well designed and here's the kicker. When you're in a tight spot like a neck, the pen style of it helps out a lot. No more smacking the back of the machine on chins and shoulders. It doesn't have a back to smack, because that would be whack. You may even have time now, between Tattoos to have a snack. I use it mostly when I'm in a tight spot like that, or when I just feel like using it. It is consistent and efficient. Keep in mind to always wrap the pen with barrier control.

    solid machine

    Posted by monnet_tattoo on Mar 10th 2017

    I do a few different styles often at my shop. Small walk ins occasionally, black and grey, and then my usual newscool ish illustrative style. Bold lines bright solid color. This machine has been a breeze thru all of this. New school styles can be hard on a machine. Single pass bold lines with large needle groupings are no problem. The machine is sleek and easy to wrap with barrier film . I'm super happy with it and would recommend it to any artist out there looking to try a pen style machine!!!
