" 2 things could be causing this.....

Have you made a slight bend in the needle bar?
Have you got the elastic bands in place?

If its just the burning feeling that you are worried about, forget it.
This is what happens when you tattoo yourself. Automatically, when you feel pain you want to stop, but if you are getting a tattoo from someone else, it doesnt even cross your mind that something maybe wrong.

Made slight bend in needle,had 2x12 rubber bands on,had my volts set at 8.9 it was running smooth and crispy,when looking at the needle it was going in and out of the shovel but seemed to be lifting up of the shovel when i pressed the foot pedal to but power on.When i stoped the machine it went back down into the shovel is this right or wrong!...Other wise everything going right and the course is spot on ye...........
