When you're learning the art of tattooing, it's natural to adopt the tattoo supplies your mentor uses as your own preferred brands. As you continue to grow as an artist, though, it's worthwhile to branch out and try new brands to further develop your craft. Exploring the diverse types of tattoo ink, needles, machines, and other tattoo supplies available will do two things for you: Changing up your routine and trying new things will help you figure out which tattoo supplies yield the best results in your hands, and it will also teach you to be flexible, resourceful and able to create stunning tattoos with whatever tattoo supplies are available to you.
Where should you start if you're ready to try some new tattoo supplies? Why not begin your exploration with some of the top brands in the tattoo industry--brands like Cheyenne, Intenze, and Painful Pleasures' own Precision tattoo supplies.
Cheyenne Tattoo Supplies
Cheyenne is a German-based tattoo supply company who's main claim to fame is the notorious Cheyenne Hawk tattoo machine. The Cheyenne Hawk is a precision rotary tattoo machine that offers the same quality feedback response found in coil machines. It was carefully designed by Cheyenne to meet tattoo artists' shared needs while also allowing them to express their unique, individual design styles.
The Cheyenne Hawk is a pinnacle of German engineering that has many benefits. The Hawk is lightweight, compact and user friendly. It utilizes disposable needle cartridges that can be changed out quickly and that support health-conscious tattooing with their anti-contamination integrated membranes and needles that retract when the machine is turned off. Cheyenne Hawk tattoo machines also allow artists to work with greater control and response by automatically adjusting to artists' movements.
Cheyenne makes a variety of accessories for tattoo artists to use along with their Cheyenne Hawk tattoo machines. Choose from two Cheyenne power supply units, motors in a variety of colors, tattoo needles in a range of configurations, colorful grips, disposable Hawk cartridges, and accessories like phono cords.

Intenze Tattoo Ink
Intenze has been paving the way for tattoo artists to create beautiful tattoos safely for more than two decades. The company's founder, world-renowned tattoo artist Mario Barth, has always looked to the future and worked to keep his company's products one step ahead of the trend. He knew that as tattoos grew in popularity, safety would become an increasingly bigger concern for consumers, which is why Intenze was one of the first tattoo ink brands to manufacture sterile ink. Intenze tattoo ink meets cosmetic regulations, it's vegan and organic, it goes into the skin smoothly, and tattoos inked with Intenze heal well and stay vibrant for many years.
Even though most reputable tattoo ink brands can now claim that their inks are also organic and sterile, Intenze has remained an industry leader. There's a multifaceted reason for that. For one, Intenze relies on the experience and work of a number of acclaimed tattoo artists to help them develop new lines of tattoo ink. Artists like Mark Mahoney and Bob Tyrrell have helped Intenze create special lines of tattoo ink that allow other artists to draw on their experience and create stunning tattoos in styles similar to their own.
Another thing Intenze has going for it is its focus on making "tools that make your work easier and the outcome of your labor better.” The company's customer-centric focus has lead it to stay on the cutting edge of tattoo technology and manufacture tattoo supplies that artists can rely on consistently. They also offer more colors and types of tattoo ink than any other ink manufacturer. Bottom line: Intenze is known for its innovativeness, reliability and variety--three factors that helped the company corner the tattoo ink market and that continue to make Intenze a leader in the tattoo industry.
