Q: What’s the maintenance on the Whip …. the answer to this one is really simple. Just keep it clean.. that simple. The SwashdriveWhip has a sealed bearing, so you can’t oil it, and that is about it. The Tattoo machine has been designed for reliability. The SwashdriveWhip is a collaboration between a tattoo artist with 25 years in the business and an engineer who has been willing to explore the boundaries, listen to the feedback, then produce an even better machine than the previous model.

A: All Swashdrives are designed with the Artist in mind!
