MAGI BLACK EDITION - ICON SERIES NIKKO HURTADO X BISHOP ROTARY TATTOO MACHINE// In 2014, Nikko Hurtado and Franco Vescovi

shared a conversation about their ideal machines. Little did they know what had just transpired... Over the next 2 years were countless hours of conversation between the two. Topics ranging from the stroke, torque of the motor, speed, etc. Eventually gave rise to the MAGI Rotary collaboration you see today. To make this more special it was decided that only 4,000 matte black and 1,000 14k gold plated machines would go into production, each one numbered and authenticated. If you have purchased one of these collectibles, please know the value of these limited edition machines will increase, as the MAGI Rotary will never reproduced again. - No lube needed! This machine is a lube/grease free design - Cartridge Machine - Compatible with all Hawk Grips and Cartridge Needles - Aircraft Aluminum - Precision Maxon Motor with dual ball bearings - RCA Connection - Made in the USA - 1 Year Warranty on all parts - Limited Edition Machine - Only 4000 Matte Black Versions and 1000 Gold Versions - 71mm Plunger Bar to use with disposable grips - 80mm plunger bar for use with Click Grips - Run the machine between 6 – 8.5 volts depending on your hand speed and style bishoptattoosupply.com
