  • Economical enough for single use, saving time and money
  • Doesn’t flex like plastic tubes
  • 1/2mm thin wall design provides unmatched precision, feels like the needle is directly connected to your hand
  • We have designed the tubes to err on the larger side of fitting the corresponding grouping as we feel ink flow is paramount.
  • Please sterilize before placing in your recycling bin
Like them...don’t love them.

Overall...I really enjoy your tubes. Especially when using my Dan Kubin sidewinder V5. But, half of them get separated from the cork as I am doing my set-up. The tube starts slipping out of its position as I slide it through the machine. As you can imagine, that can cause some minor and major issues if I try to still use it. I obviously don’t know if y’all have heard this complaint before...but, finding a better way for the tube to be connected to the cork grip, would be ideal...cause when one stay intact, MAN do I love your tubes. It just happens too frequently for me to really rely on them.

Great tubes

Feel of steel, but much lighter. Plus you can fit the 18rl needles in them.

Love these tubes!

Love these tubes! Feels great in the hand, my machines run a volt lower compared to the plastic ones, definitely buying again! The only negative I noticed was my machine seemed twice as loud, which is a positive if you have an annoying client,

Worth the money.

Really great tubes, incredibly consistent. Feels very good in my hand and ink flow is super smooth. Highly recommend.

Nice thick needle bar ensures accuracy and precision lines. Nice solder, never got a bad one. Black Claw forever!

These tubes are great!! No complaints at all. Now just to figure out how we can recycle these after disposing them.

Comfortable and sturdy. They help make tattooing a little bit easier

Dope but squishy grip and a bit “vibratey”

Posted by Jesse O. on Nov 1st 2018

I use steel tubes at the shop but tried these for conventions. They’re fuckin awesome! The needles lick the pigment from the reservoir to skin so buttery! No spitting. Only reason it’s not five stars is because they vibrate just a bit when you’re running nonstop for long sessions and the grip is way too squishy. But overall, def recommend at least conventions when real steel isn’t an option!
