IT'S A STANDOFF: ROTARY VS. COIL

As tattooing is an art form that has been in practice for over 5,000 years, the concept of using an electrical machine to apply tattoos is relatively new. In fact, the original patent for the very first electric tattoo machine was only filed in 1891—a mere 125 years ago!
 
The original tattoo machine patented was designed by a New York tattoo artist named Samuel O’Reilly.
