If you’re just getting into tattooing, you might be overwhelmed by all the options available when you’re looking for tattoo starter kits for sale. How can you find the best beginner tattoo kits? You can check out our beginner tattoo kit review! We researched some of the bestselling products and top brands to put together a top ten list of great options. Before we get to it, let’s take a look at some of the top features you need to know.
Pieces: We counted guns, bottles of ink, power supplies, and pedals as separate pieces. But, when it came to smaller items, we counted them as 1. For example, if a kit comes with 100 rubber bands, we counted that as 1 item.
Guns: The number of guns in these kits varies a lot, which surprised us a little. You’ll find anywhere from 1 to 9 guns! Don’t worry, though, each kit is equipped with enough equipment for lining and shading.
Materials: Some of the materials you’ll find are cast iron, stainless steel, and aluminum. The biggest thing to consider about materials is that some are much lighter than others. This will affect how heavy your tattoo gun it.
Inks: Some kits don’t include any ink while others have as few as 1 bottle. Get this: some have as many as 54! It’s nice to get ink because then you have everything, but it’s also fun to go out and choose your own colors.
Foot Pedal: When you’re tattooing, your hands should be free so they can focus only on the work at hand. That’s why you need a foot pedal, to make adjustments without having to use your hands to do it.
Power Supply: You can’t use a tattoo gun without a power supply which is why there’s one included in every kit we chose. The right power supply can provide smooth, consistent power to your gun for smooth tattooing.
Now that you know more about the features of a tattoo starter kit, let’s take a look at our best tattoo gun for beginners. Running short on time? Check out our top and budget picks first.
