Critical Analysis

Everything is okay with this product. Except for one important detail. All the tattoo machines require needles to draw tattoos. This tattoo machine does not come with needles. How awkward is that? The makers thought about making it suitable for all the standard needles but forgot to put some needles in the machine just to feel more secure.

This is a small mistake. I don’t know if it’s deliberate or not. But they should start providing needles in the box. Just a standard needles machine is not enough. You need needles to fit in first, right?
