I am looking to replace all my tattoo kit.
The kit/s i seem to like (hildbrant etc) are all in the U.S and i dont want to
pay those ridiculas shipping cost.

So my question is Where can i buy a decent resonable priced kit in the U.K?

Buy things seperately that you really want. You will only pay slightly more than the price of a kit, and you will have half decent gear.

What you will get in a kit:


  • 6 inks that are totally useless to you, and possibly dangerous to others.(*£useless)
  • 2 or more machines that will run very hot and eventually die. (*£12 each)
  • Cheap Clipcord and pedal (About *£8 for the pair)
  • Basic power supply (But thats all you need to start)(*£10)
  • 25 needles and tips, (half the sizes you will never use)(*£3.00)
  • Practice skin that costs peanuts. (*£2.00)
  • Back stem and grip. (*£3.00)
  • 25 ink caps (Cost around *£10 per 1000)
  • Odd sheet of tracing and cheapy hecto paper.
  • Ink cap holder (*£2.50)
Hopefully this gives you a bit of an eye opener to what you are getting in a kit imported from China.

Hildebrandt is outta Canada, so you may not get hurt with shipping. Give them a call the number is on the web site.

Oh...........Every machine i have from them is still working and works extremely well. Ive ordered 3 kits from them for a reason......... NO JUNK in this set up.:icon_mrgreen:
