Some disposable supplies are really poor quality bit there is a supplier that does consistently high standard of these supplies powerline supplies is by far the beat for this type of product they have a huge range and even have tight liners with the extra thin tip so you can see what your doing if your having problems finding decent ones check these guys out anyone else got any good advice about suppliers post a post and tell the world :)

I use powerline for the same reason, there is only one problem with them and that is if you order a small amount the post is dear, the best thing to do for small orders is to buy from them using ebay, it's much cheaper.

I know truetubes.com do disposables with metal tips, but they are an american supplier and they look a little pricey! ($25 for 12) The one thing I have been looking at though is this http://www.ttechtattoo.com/index.ph...cond&caid=28&zenid=3uji7karplc0cd46h7eahfn0n5 they make a grip for standard tattoo machines that take the cheyenne hawk tip/cartridges. Their own brand of cartridges work out about $18 for 20. But as I've not long ordered a load of regular disposables it will probably be a while till I get round to trying these!

i use the hawk machine but i'v also git the ez grip from t-tech to take there own cartridges and hawk cartridges and it works great, also if you can't afford the hawk and want t use that system they are a cheap way to do it.

Cheers yeah had a look at powerline they have gave me good customer service before aswell. Do you recommend trying the pin up brand or powerlines own? The pin up grips look as tho they would be comfortable compared to the white plastic ones

Beppe, i got my ez grip from t-tech, it cost about 15 pound, i don't know of any uk sellers, it would be good if there was because the post is dear from canada so i normaly order about *£150 worth and unlike cheyenne hawks needle cartridges i have not had a bad one yet.
I use mine with another rotary i have got but you can use any machine you like and i promise you that you will notice the difference with your line work.

Couple of questions about the EZ-grip from T-tech:

1. Does the needle driver bar push the needles in the cartridge?

2. Do you need to still use rubber bands with this setup?

3. Do you have to autoclave the grip & the needle driver bar?

4. With the Needle Cartridges are you able to adjust the needle depth? (like how far the needle is sticking out of the tube.) If so how much play do you have with it? (Like is it slightly limited opposed to standard tubes and needles?

you get a special needle bar with the ez grip, and it will depend on the machine you are using wether you need a band or not, i have never had to use one but some people on here use elastic bands to keep the needle bar from slipping off, it seems to be on the lower end of the market machines, you adjust the depth of the needle the same way as you would with any other machine by moving the tube up or down and i use a autoclave to clean mine but really it's the same set up as the hawk so some people use wipes to clean them.
