Thermal Copier & Cleaner
It's very important to know there is two types of 'tattoo copier':
1. Fax machine type - this is the most common
2. Thermal-Copier using IR Heat lamp and rollers (much more expensive but much better) Fax machine types with like the old thermal fax machine, using a thermal head. Problems: Head often is not hot enough so designs are faint/ don't work or
the whole machine is a dud. most are Chinese so that says it all. IR (Infra Red) Thermal-Copiers use a heat lamp inside a reflector and require a carrier to hold the tattoo paper as it passes through the machine - they are MUCH hotter and have a speed dial to adjust the speed/ temperature. This type is much more expensive, but work on all types of tattoo paper and are for studio use. If you buy a cheap fax machine type copier then expect cheap patchy results. You get what you pay for in this field.
