The act of tattooing in modern times now involves using electric tattoo machines. The tattoo machines inset ink into the skin through a group of needles fused onto a bar mounted to an oscillating unit. The needles are rapidly and repeatedly driven in and out of the skin by the unit, usually eighty to one hundred and fifty times a second.
In modern tattooing, a thermal stencil paper or hectograph is used by an artist to place the design print on the skin before the machine and needle are made to work on the skin. Artists are now able to create detailed artworks through this process.
The rotary market has experienced a cordless revolution via the introduction of wireless tattoo machines, as many of the most renowned brands now have their versions. To help you cut the cord and join the wireless revolution, we're going to run through some of the best wireless tattoo machines.
One of the most popular selection options among tattoo artists has been to obtain the best wireless tattoo machine in the past few years. These machines now offer impressive performance as they operate very smoothly and swiftly, with a cordless power supply, which is economical and practical for designing the design tools.
The absence of wires in the tattooing process can feel very liberating as against using wired tattoo machines where wires often get tangled and need to be protected with blockade films. Also, they break easily, making different machine brands have various connectors for power plugs.
At this point, finding the best wireless tattoo machine boils down to your preferences, as different rotaries will provide a variety of adjustment options that will be better for your tattooing style and way of working. Here are the reviews of some of the wireless tattoo machines you can go for. You can get in touch with our team today to help find the best one for you!
Spektra Flux S
The Spektra Flux S marks the first wireless PMU machine from the team behind Microbeau and DarkLab, following the popular Xion S permanent make-up machine. There is a detachable battery called PowerBolt, which is used to power the Spektra Flux S. This allows PMU artists to run the machine wirelessly without the trouble to look for cables or power supplies. It is interchangeable, which means one can swiftly and quickly switch to an auxiliary battery (that is sold separately) when the battery charge runs out to keep the work going without problems.
There is a USB-C connection and Dynamic Power-Path Management, with a lithium-ion battery in the PowerBolt. This is what makes the simultaneous power delivery and battery charging possible. It provides fast charging speeds - a maximum of 1.5 Amps, and a run time lasts for 10 hours, depending on the exact type of voltage and cartridge used. Also, there is stability and reliability provided by the higher energy density of the PowerBolt.
In addition, the PowerBolt has got three buttons - one is used to turn the Spektra Flux S on/off and the other two to adjust the voltage swiftly and efficiently. Then, there is a battery capacity, and voltage LED indicator. To regulate the voltage of the Spektra Flux in 0.5 V increments or decrements from 6 to 12 V, press the up and down arrows with the colour of the LED that corresponds to the voltage chart on the PowerBolt. Also, the PowerBolt offers a bonus ability to 'kill-switch' the machine. This is helpful when you are traveling with the PMU machine by flight, as it stops the Spektra Flux S from being switched on without notice.
You can pair the Spektra Flux S with DarkLab's Hover power supply and app, as it is Bluetooth-enabled. It is future-proof as you can use the DarkLab app to update it with the latest firmware wirelessly.
