Tattoo machine tuning seminar by Paulo Cruzes

On Sunday 18 of November 2012, I was giving a seminar on coil tattoo machine assembling and tuning at Evolution tattoo shop in Oxford, it was a real great day we were a small group of professional tattoo artists, everyone got the chance to pick up his tattoo machine frame and choose some coils and parts and choose the springs and capacitor needed to build up the desired set up chosen, I was there to explain it all in a clear and transparent way, I explained about all the different parts and functionality and all the problems that can occur to a coil machine and how to spot it and tune it, how to replace the parts and boost it for full efficiency, everyone got to assemble the machine from scratch and all did very well, girls and boys, I was very impressed by the quality of all the builds machines, all the parts were finely adjusted the coils were shimmed professionally, the tension on the springs was excellent.

I am very happy, because I know that all who attended this day have now acquired a lifelong skill that will help them as professional tattoo artists all the time to come, and they will benefit and be able to tune any coil machine to the desired setting such as: Power liner / Cutback liner / Shader / Soft-shader / Color packer, and also be able to change the length of the stroke and to keep some good tension on the spring while doing this task, they will keep the tools of the trade to full efficiency and keep calm and carry on if an unsuspected trouble occurs.
