Coil Tattoo Machine: A Guide To Start


The coil tattoo machine is the most commonly seen and used. This machine uses an electromagnetic circuit to move the needle grouping. There are many variations of custom coil tattoo machines. Some have single coils, others double coils, and others yet even have triple coils. Although many combinations exist, double coil tattoo machines are considered to be the standard for most tattoo artists who prefer coil machines.

Coil Tattoo Machine How It Works

The best coil tattoo machine utilizes electromagnetic currents to create and break a circuit in a cyclical fashion, moving the needles attached to the machine forward into the skin when the circuit is created and retracting them when the circuit breaks.

When the machine's coils are charged, the electromagnetic current pulls the metal armature bar of the coil tattoo machine down towards the coils, which then pushes the attached tattoo needles into the skin. That downward motion breaks the circuit previously created by the front spring attached to the top of the armature bar touching a neighboring contact screw, which causes the electromagnetic field to collapse, the armature bar to spring back towards the contact screw, and the needles to retract back into the tattoo tube. 

Once the front spring reconnects with the contact screw, the cycle begins again and repeats at a rapid pace (the precise rate of which is set by the tattoo artist) as long as the machine is in use.

Coil Tattoo Machine Parts

The major coil tattoo machine parts include the tattoo machine frame (the core of the machine - all other parts are attached to it), tattoo machine coils, the front binding post, the back binding post, contact screws, the armature bar, armature bar screws, and front & rear springs.

Again, there are other components to a coil tattoo machine, including the various nuts and bolts, washers, and the pieces you attach right before you use your machine (e.g. tattoo grips, tattoo needles, a power cord, etc.). However, the components detailed above are the core components of every tattoo machine.

How to Replace Coils of Coil Tattoo Machine

All frames are different, but there will typically be two holes on the bottom to settle the coils into, a hole on the top left of the frame to attach the left coil connector and front binding post, and a hole on the bottom right to attach the right connector and back binding post.

After settling the coils into the frame with washers in between, screw the coils to the frame loosely by hand. Then, once confirmed that the coil connectors are lined up well with the appropriate holes on the frame, press the coils down against the frame as you tighten the screws underneath with an Allen key to ensure that the coils don't spin.

Note: Sometimes it's best to wait until both coils and armature assembly are attached to the frame before inserting the washers between the bottom of the coils and the machine frame.
