The Stigma Hyper V3 tattoo machine is one of our most popular machines. It’s a semi-rotary (hybrid) with a swash drive system and vertical motor, ergonomically designed to give a balanced feel in your hand. It’s available eight six colors—orange, red, blue, black, silver, pink, purple, or green—and fits all standard needles tubes and grips. This machine is also super lightweight, weighing in at only 4 ounces.
One of the reasons for its popularity is that the V3 is softest hitting rotary on the market, but is completely adjustable via a screw on top of the machine. Turning the screw clockwise will make the machine hit harder for lining, while turning it counter-clockwise will soften the hit so you can shade. It can be adjusted in about 5 seconds, so you adjust quickly and stay focused on your work. Another awesome feature is the needle bar stabilizing system that removes the need for replacing rubber bands.
In The Box
The Stigma Hyper V3 comes with the machine, a small bottle of synthetic super lube, and instructions on how to use the machine. We’d like to take a moment to stress that you should read all of the instructions, even if you are a very experienced tattoo artist. The instructions will outline how to lubricate the machine properly, care for the machine to ensure a long life, and use it safely to protect both you and your clients.
The Stigma Hyper V3 comes with both RCA and clipcord connections. Stigma recommends using an RCA for a solid connection, but either will work for your machine. This machine is polarity protected, but if for any reason you find that your connection isn’t working, you will have to reverse the polarity of the machine by inverting the two wires on the quarter inch end of your clipcord.
The V3 is compatible with any National Tattoo Power Supply. It’s important not to run this particular machine above 13 volts to protect the life of the motor.
