My mates (# 1 issue)

This is my favourite one at all... and it's a shader! Builded by MAO ( it's a super smooth machine with a average long soft stroke... shades are more shaded than in reality ;-)
Personally, I use also with big liner needles (9 or +), going slowly, for big lines straight and black as an interstate...
It needs low volts to work properly... but it works great also if you want it more nervous and faster, with a couple of volts more...

HoundDog @ Copenaghen InkExpo, 4/6 November 2011 (


I deal with tattooing since 1997 and I finally decided to open a
blog relating to my work. I'll try to go further, writing about
technique, equipment, artists, and everything about this world.
You can find me on facebook looking for Christian hounddog Porta.
Thank you.
