One side of the coils is connected to the power supply, the other end to the point on the screw on the bunny ear, which is insulated from the base. When you press the foot pedal and make a complete circuit the current flows to the coils of the machine. This causes the coils to become electromagnetic. The electro-magnet pulls down the bar, which pulls down the tattoo needles and opens the points at the same time. When the points open. The circuit is broken and the current stops flowing. The magnetic field collapses and the spring forces the points to close and raise the tattoo needles at the same time. The whole cycle starts again as the points make contact.

Most machines have a large capacitor across the coils/points, which keep the points from arcing and pitting, and wearing out so quickly. A capacitor is a device that holds energy kind of like a battery, but charges and discharges much faster, parts of a second. The capacitor charges while the points are open, so when they close, the difference in voltage across them is nil. The points are really an automatic switch controlled by the spring to turn the thing off and on quickly.

The difference between 10 wrap coils and 8 wrap coils is the 10 wrap is more powerful and creates a bigger and stronger magnetic field. 8 wraps are used to do line work and on small areas. Normally up to 5 needles. 10 wraps are used for coloring, shading on large areas. There is 12 wraps which are used with large magnums etc.

The sanitary tube sucks up the ink in capillary fashion, and the needles load up as long as there’s ink in the small portion of the tube. It’s called “sanitary” because of the cut out at the bottom of the tube, which can be rinsed out.

Tattoo Machine Foot Pedal

The pedals are a simple switch, on and off. When the button is depressed with the foot, two contact points meet. This makes a circuit and allows the electrical current to flow, D.C which stands for (direct current) instead of A.C. (alternating current, current flows forward and then reverses 50,000 times a second).  The power supply unit is plugged in to the mains supply from the building you are in. That is A.C. normally 110 to 240 volts depending on which country you live in. The p

ower supply unit converts it into D.C. through transformer.
