I have 18 years of experience in tattooing and only recently became a Stigma® ProArtist. I am the type of person who tries to avoid calling something better or worse, since I believe every single machine works in proper hands. The Shot machine let me work with lines/shading and color without any unnecessary adjustments. It speeds up my work, makes my life easier. It’s also fast and strong, just perfect. I had to say goodbye to a couple machines I used to work with for many years when I started to use the Shot. Since always, the Stigma® brand, was associated with powerful motors in my mind. The Stigma® team really seems to look in the future and invest in innovations.
