Want to be a tattoo artist? You’ll need the right tools for the job first!

Posted by Tattoo Station on

If you want a career as a tattoo artist, then there are some things you’ll need to get started.

Remember, tattooing someone involves stabbing them repeatedly with a small needle, so when it comes to safety, quality, and reputation, only the best tattoo equipment will do!

Tattoo Needles

Possible the most important weapon in an artists’ arsenal, tattoo needles need to be safe above all else.

Traditional steel tubes need to be cleaned and sterilised after each use, taking up time and money, which is why the tattoo industry, in general, is switching to disposable needles and tubes.

Disposable tubes can simply be thrown out after use, and a new packet opened. This not only makes life easier for everyone, but gives the client peace of mind when it comes to contamination.

We use Botan Premium Tattoo Needles, high-quality needles will always be consistent, sharp and to the highest quality.

Tattoo Ink

Tattoo Station are very proud to be the official New Zealand suppliers of Eternal Ink, a name trusted around the world.

Eternal Ink lead the way in tattoo ink by setting strict standards in product consistency, quality ingredients, and outstanding performance. They take great satisfaction in knowing that artists believe and trust in their product.

If you want to make your work shine, then only the best ink will do!

Tattoo Machines

Mark Sender started tattooing 10 years ago, and from the moment he started his apprenticeship, he tried to build his first tattoo machine.

Ten years later, Mark makes and sells his own machines, made from only the best materials and highest quality parts. These impressive tattoo machines will cover the everyday needs of tattoo artists everywhere, with each one simple, serviceable and ready to use out of the box.

You can feel the difference with these machines, and that’s why we not only sell them, but use them too.

Tattoo Stencils

After years of development and testing, Nikko Hurtado has created the perfect tattoo stencil solution.

Guaranteed to be loved by every tattoo artist in New Zealand, this special tattoo stencil solution provides an even truer representation of your original drawing.

The long-lasting formula will stay clear for hours, allowing you to work from start to finish without having to worry about fading or missing parts of the design.
