How Much Does a Tattoo Gun Cost?

A tattoo gun is a hand-held device used to create a permanent mark on the skin using indelible ink.  If you are going to be a tattoo artist, learning how to use a tattoo gun is vital.  No matter what tattoo shop you enter, you will see some sort of tattoo gun.

Modern tattoo machines use electromagnetic coils to move an armature bar up and down.  There are quite a number of tattoo machines, but the liners and shaders are the most common machines from a technical standpoint.  Liners will be used to draw the outline or the words of the tattoo, while a shader will be used to fill in the outline with different colors.
