PMU Needle Cartridge Chart

 I thought there was a boom in our needle choices and I was mistaken.  There is an explosion!  

Isn't is a challenge to keep track of your favorites and which companies sell what sizes in the variety of configurations? I love needles and it's quite exciting to see what's coming to market for our PMU industry. Of course you could use most any needle cartridges made for PMU or not, but Im proud of our industry pushing to the forefront and creating great products and a variety of needle choices.

I decided to start a log sheet of some of the needle cartridges available.  This is by no way all of them.  There is an abundance available so this is just a start.  There are some needle cartridges specifically created for the PMU market and I tried to include a few, but feel free to print out and add your own.

New tattoo needle cartridges fit nicely on pen style tattoo machines.

 

The new cartridge tattoo needle by TatSoul has some nice features.  Having used their quality, smooth running needles in the past I had to try this cartridge with a soft silicone finger ledge. It's like a squishy pencil holder. 

What I found a huge plus is the way the Envy finger ledge integration fits into the pen style tattoo machine making it easy for the way I wrap my machine for cross-contamination prevention. 

Another style needle cartridge is the Vertix tattoo needle cartridges.  Both the TatSoul and Vertix tattoo cartridge needles are great quality, have a lip on the cartridge making it fit nicely up to the edge of the machine tip, and they both have a membrane that prevents the backflow of ink into the machine.
