Pirat offers a range of standard tattoo machines and a series of custom models.

What Coil Types does Pirat offer?

Tattoo machines can be either liners or shaders, and when you choose your Pirat tattoo machine, you can choose the same style in a liner or a shader.

Liners are short-stroke machines that are ideal for creating solid lines. They can also be used to create smooth gradients.
Shaders, on the other hand, are long-stroke and are best for shading and coloring. They are a necessary component if you want your tattoo to be colored in, and they are slightly better for your skin than liners.
