Will a universal tattoo cartridge fit my PMU machine?

Will a universal tattoo cartridge fit my PMU machine?

With so many machines on the market today for Permanent Makeup its hard to know which needles you can purchase for your machine. However, no matter what brand your machine is its generally classified as either a PMU machine or a tattoo machine, as many tattoo machines are now being made and used for permanent makeup procedures. 

PMU MACHINES
These machines were created for PMU only, and include digital machines, such as the Nouveau Contour as well as the many inexpensive machines you'll find on Amazon or that you might receive in your "kit" from your instructor. On these machines, the opening for the cartridge needle is different to a tattoo machine and will not fit universal tattoo cartridges. This opening is often unique to the brand and requires brand specific needles, however many PMU machines will have a similar fitting and will take a common PMU cartridge that is sold under many different brand names. Needle sizes for these machines are often limited and simply referred to by the number of needles in each configuration (1, 3, etc).

TATTOO MACHINES / HYBRID MACHINES
Although some of these machines are now being made specifically for PMU, many are made for general tattooing. Because of this, almost all are designed with a universally sized opening for cartridges so that tattoo artists can continue to use their favourite brands, sizes and configurations of cartridge needles. The sizes and configurations are vast and differences include everything from number of needles, shapes of needle groupings, tightness of groupings, tapers of needles and even whether the needles are polished or textured.


Our Halcyon Cosmetic Professional needles are UNIVERSAL tattoo cartridge needles and will fit most tattoo rotary machines on the market today but they will not fit a PMU specific machine. They have been designed for permanent makeup artists and have a wide variety of needle sizes and configurations to fit most rotary and hybrid rotary tattoo machines on the market today.

We’ve all had that client who surprises us and returns with little to no pigment at all, for no obvious reason. Many artists are quick to blame their pigment brand and jump to another line in attempts to solve the issue, but this is rarely the cause if you're using a reputable brand. So, what can you do?
