Eikon Green Monster Tattoo Machines are the result of the tattoo machine creation project represented in the first 5 issues of Machinegun Magazine. The whole series is made of two pieces of steel welded together, and machined with numerical control machines for greater precision, the closing and opening for gripping the tube is in two pieces.
Four different types of configurations are available: line with a short stroke, line with a long stroke, for shadows and for color.
The line ones have a light hammer. The gap between the hammer and the coil on the short stroke line model is 1.19mm with an approximate speed of 140 cycles per second. The hammer to spool spacing on the long stroke line model is 1.58mm with an approximate speed of also 140 cycles per second. The stroke in the long stroke machine is less abrupt than in the short stroke machine, depending on the type of line we want to achieve, we will use one type or another.
The shadow machine has a medium weight hammer with a hammer to coil spacing of 1.58mm with a speed of approximately 110 cycles per second.
The color machine has a heavy hammer with a coil to hammer spacing of 1.58mm with a speed of approximately 100 cycles per second.
The Green Monster comes ready to use, but you may have to adjust it to your needs to find the best way of working for you.
