Pirat Candy Tattoo Machine: Review & Guide

Candy Liner Iron

The Pirat Candy is a small coil tattoo machine (like the Pirat Razor) suitable for all kind of linings. Its compact design makes it perfect for artists who plan to use it on the go. You will even get to choose from two (2) material options.


Pirat is famous for the quality of their coil tattoo machines; the Candy model doesn’t disappoint. This model comes in two (2) variants, made of either iron or aluminum. If you’re aiming for a lightweight device, the latter is perhaps your best option, although the difference between them is negligible.

Nevertheless, the aluminum version weighs only 5.29 ounces, whereas the iron one goes up to almost six (6) ounces.

  • Liner or Shader:

As its name suggests, the Candy Liner is designed to provide smooth, precise lines regardless of what kind of lines you want to achieve.

The Candy Shader, on the other hand, is made for shading and coloring. Like most Pirat machines, this one is handmade in Poland and comes in a range of finishes.

You can also choose from an assortment of coils coming in a rainbow of colors, while the machine operates in the 4.5-6 volts range.

Final Comments

Small, lightweight, and fast, the Pirat Candy boasts a high speed between 138 and 142Hz without a needle and is compatible with all standard needles.

Easy to set up and use by professionals, this machine is also fully customizable, allowing you to choose from different colors, contact type, and either a butterfly or coin screw.

Packing all you could wish from a performing coil tattoo machine, this unit also adapts itself to most tattooing jobs. Made for either lining or shading, the unit performs beautifully no matter your project.

We also like the choice of materials, which allows you to choose between indestructible iron or more lightweight aluminum.

Handmade and able to skyrocket your tattoo artist ego, the Pirat Candy is a great machine to add to your arsenal.
