Looks like a little swallow a bit small to see .... are you going to colour it in? maybe a hint of blue in there would stand out nicely ;)

Micky Sharpz bro! You cant go wrong, you want to get your self a liner and a shader there about *£150 EACH! yes its alot but i think you can get lower cost ones on his site.
Trust me fella the Quality in his machines are unstoppable, You will get a certificate with his equipment to prove they are the real deal.
I worked like a tropper to save for my equipment, all my tupes, tips, grips, power supply ect from Micky Sharpz.
Don't get me wrong i had a ebay kit to start of with, but as you get more confident with your art and tattooing get yourself a Sharpz.
Alot of people are into these Royal machines, i cant judge as i aint used one before, I just think there ugly to be honest and i just like the feel of an old school machine.
Heres his website

For something cheaper, I recommend Hoodlum machines and they cost around *£40-*£60. A tattooist friend of mine had a go with mine and he loved them, where he usually uses Mickey Sharpz and Mickey Bee machines...... They're handmade by a guy called Steve Baggerz, you tell him exactly what you want and he makes and tunes it all for you......

I've never used any of Supertats' machines, but I hear good things about them too that are around the *£40 mark.....

Also mate keep in mind, *you go cheap your going to get cheap*
It's the same in being a plumber you need the right tools for the job, theres no cheap way about it

John, I did your arm with a Mickey Sharpz. The costs of tattooing spiral as you buy more things and consumables. There's no getting away with it if you want to progress I'm afraid.

I use Glyn Flew machines they are raelly good and around *£85 each. Check out his ebay website. Supertatz sells some good machines for around *£40 or less, for the money they are really good the esil machines are very good almost as good as Glyn Flew. But the cheap chinese machines are usually rubbish. I started out using them and thought they were ok until I used Glyn Flew and the Esil from Supertatz. If moneys tight, for now you could do far worse for *£40

looks like the stencil wasn't to good to start with, if you make a bad job of the stencil the tattoo will turn out bad, good machines or bad, try another tattoo but on this one take your time doing the stencil and tattoo.

Glyn Flew or a Danny Fowler liner will serve you well.

I have a Danny Fowler Time machine punches lines in nice and tight ...... you only get what you pay for, type glyn flew into eBay and see what he has got
