what our artists say...

Read below all the great reviews on our Machines so far to date! 

So matey finally got round to using the new machine for a full colour tattoo and all I can say is hats off mate! If I had one of these sooner in my career I'd be much further along! It's a beautiful weight the hit on it for a 3.5 is something else and most of all it slaps in ink outstandingly ! Pushes a 14rs in with ease and same goes with a 23curved mag! I can't wait to use this more down my career and see what art can be made with it honestly mate hats off. 

First time using the valknut for colour, we got through it so fast! Without any difficulty or risk to integrity of the tattoo. There's a little bit of magic in that thing! It's not that I didn't believe the reviews. I'm new to the whole rotary game and still learning but this thing...seems to have made the process a whole lot easier and faster. My poor coils are gonna hate me.

What sort of magic is this machine ? Been 'borrowing' my wife's new machine from you guys ,and l'm trying to make it mine it took me a little while to get used to it compared to what I was used to but after two days back to back on same client , I don't want to ever use anything else. 

THE ONLY MACHINE TO MAKE ME PUT DOWN MY B PACKER! I've been tattooing for almost 15 years, working my way through numerous coils, bar rotaries and pens. When I got a B packer I thought I was set for life... until I got a Valknut! Due to the online hype and reputation of these machines, my expectations were high, and admittedly skeptical. Let me tell you all right now...the rumors are all true! What a beautiful machine to work with! I have the 4mm model, and lining is a pleasure! Colour packing is a dream! Shading is wonderful (although I would recommend a shorter stroke for those that like to layer their tones). Stipple shading is also brilliant with this setup, delivering those spicy whips effortlessly! Besides the operational side of things, the machine is beautifully presented, aesthetically pleasing, and ergonomically perfect. Well balanced, comfortable for long sittings, and testament to the hard work that has clearly gone into the development and redevelopment.

Just gave the new machine a spin! Hats off to you, this thing is sick. I never thought I would be a "pen person". I tried the "top of the line" pen brands and hated every single one of them before swapping back to my old faithfuls. I let out an audible "f****** hell" when I pulled the first line. So good! I can firmly say I'll be retiring my overpriced K*. Can't wait to get stuck in using the valknut again next week

Well what can I say? I'm always sceptical about buying new machines because more often than not, they don't perform how you feel they should That's definitely not the case with Vaulknut, once reading plenty of reviews I decided to take the plunge I opted for the 3mm for soft shades and realistic work and it works exactly how a machine should.

Seriously, this machine is a god send! l've been using the C* machines for years and your machine is overshadowing them by far! Fine lines gliding in with such ease! Used it literally as soon as it arrived and I have no plans on switching back to the C* sol machine. Best machine I've used by far! Going to have to add to the collection now for sure! Thank you!

Maaaaaaate. This machine though. It's my first wireless experience (I'm old, and old school, ok?) and the freedom of that is insane. I ran it for a 15 hour shift yesterday for May the Fourth and one battery nearly lasted me the whole day. I've never been happy lining with cartridges. UNTIL NOW. Fine lines go in clean and crispy. Bigger lines no problem for this machine. I'm converted Shading and colour smooth and consistent. Flipping love it. I'm sold mate.

Let me start with service.Good products can be relatively easy to come by from time to time period. What good service is very rare.l have been treated exceptionally well at every step of the way when ordering any Valknut products! Andrew is a true champion!! Shipping nightmares (not his fault.. between Strikes in the UK and my being in the US) were made right at his expense (unreal by today's standards but true) The timely responses to messages at all hours... the die hard commitment to getting the right to for the job in your hands is EXCEPTIONAL.

Literally the best machine in the universe in my opinion. Never loved a machine so much

Thank you, this machine is just blowing me away. Never thought a 3mm machine would be such a good packer

This machine is next level l've had 3 days tattooing with one battery and it's not even close to dying. The lining is so buttery I had the biggest grin each line I pulled cause of how nice it was it's amazing!!

Hi guys. I just wanted to to thank you for the new machine and the speedy delivery. I wasn't expecting it to arrive the next day so I was made up! I put it through its paces for the first time and I have to say its the best machine I have used so far. I found 7v to be the sweet spot for me and I was getting super smooth shades.The biggest difference I noticed was the super consistent ink flow I was getting. I will most definitely be buying more when your new batch is ready

Mate I have to say Just Wow wow wow the machine is just amazing I just done this whole tattoo with it an I'm literally blown away ,the feed back an feel u get through the machine is amazing , the battery life is unbelievable and the build quality is the very best l've ever seen N to top if off it's number 3 which is my lucky number! Thank u so much mate

Just thought I'd message you after giving the machine another go today. It is amazing tbh! I don't know how you've done it but it is better for me than all of my others. I thought I'd wait to tell you as I wanted to make sure. I used it yesterday for a long session over two tattoos and then for a full session today and the battery still hasn't ran out. It has improved the accuracy of my needles, it has helped the ink flow better and more consistent too. It hits nicely on the skin, minimised the trauma and helped with reducing redness Even on 6 volts I can do super smooth soft shading and textures and then it blasts in the solid black as I wanted!

Ive got to say mate you're an its such absolute wizard a nice machine to use for everything, shades soft aswell as punches the black in with ease Started this for a few hours this morn for a half day sesh and it just flew in with ease very sure my lad at work will be ordering one very soon

I just want to say... wow! What a machine. Honestly it's insane, I've been trying so many other machines the last 12 months and nothing has come close to this machine. You've really cracked the code!

I honestly don't think I'll ever use any other machines, I'm the most settled iv ever felt with these. lv been through countless machines over the last 16 years and these piss on em all! Magic mate

Right I've done one tattoo with the 3mm and I am AMAZED! So smooth practically 0 vibration and I feel like it's so perfectly weighted, it just makes tattooing an absolute dream! Cant wait to try the 4mm! Appreciate the fast delivery also! Thank you so so much!

Dude this machine is incredible. Used coil machines from the day I started my apprenticeship so was always a bit weary in changing my whole set up, but this makes it feel effortless best purchase l've made career wise

That machines blowing my mind. So today I thought I'd trying lining with it too. The 4.0 stroke pushed a 14RS to line with with ease. When it comes to colour it packs colour in effortlessly. I ran the machine a tad lower to get some sweet blending. I'm definitely going to be getting a second machine. Wish I'd made the switch sooner

Ok so first proper tattoo I did today with the Valknut!!! I am literally obsessed!!!! And the battery is amazing! It didn't even get low after 4/5 hours!! Absolutely incredible !! Thankyou so much!!

Just wanted to say having used the machine today, I can honestly say wow what a machine I've used most if not all the big boy machines and this is by far the best machine I've used

I HAVE A HUGE EVER CHANGING COLLECTION OF MACHINES FROM COILS TO ROTARIES. BIG NAME BRANDS I'VE USED THEM ALL. AFTER PURCHASING VAULKNUT ROTARIES (3MM & 4MM) EVERYTHING I OWN SITS IN MY DRAWER. FIRSTLY THE BATTERIES. . . YOU GET 2 PER MACHINE PLUS YOUR STANDARD RCA MOTOR. I HAVE USED THESE ALL DAY 7+ HOURS AND FORGOTTEN TO CHARGE THEM. YET THEY STILL JUST KEEP GOING. THERES NO DIP IN VOLTAGE OR POWER EVEN WHEN THE BATTERIES ARE LOW! PERFORMANCE.. FLAWLESS. 4MM BANGS IN LINES AND COLOUR, RUN IT A LITTLE SLOWER AND SHADES TOO. USING THEM ROUGHLY BETWEEN 7-8V 3MM HAS NOW REPLACED MY BNG SHADER OF 5 YEARS. ITS SMOOTH, CONSISTENT. BUILD QUALITY FOR PRICE IS EXCEPTIONAL, PACKAGING AND ALL THE CHARGERS, CABLES YOULL EVER NEED. CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! HANDS DOWN THE BEST YOULL GET FROM ANYONE. ONE GUY MAKING THE INDUSTRY A BETTER PLACE BY HELPING EVERyONE WITHIN MINUTES OF A QUERY. I AM HOPING TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE MY WORK, MY STYLE SOMETHING IVE ALWAYS WANTED TO ACHIEVE WAS AN AWARD OR RECOGNITION IN A MAGAZINE, AND WITH THESE MACHINES AND THE CREW OF ARTISTS IN THE VAULKNUT CREW I CAN ACHIEVE IT

I got this machine since August and this is my daily driver after my F* machine died miserable. I'm smashing lines twice faster and they heal solid! Colour packing is a joke now with this 4.0 bad boi. My apprentice started using my machine when I was away and now I have to fight to get it back! Glad she bought her own now;) Definitely recomend, batteries are solid and holding definitely longer than F* machine ones. Well balanced, all catridges are fitting without a problem, its an awesome punchy gangster,I can even do a smooth shading with 4.0 stroke. Great price for killer machine, also great customer service. 100%!!

Absolutely unreal machine. Never misses a beat. Pushes any size needle like it's butter. Beats any "top brand" machine l've previously used and at a fraction of the price Honestly the best purchase I've made, worth every single penny Don't sleep on this one

Best tattoo machine l've ever used mate honest, 3.5 does it all tbh.. it's shades so soft, it also packs and lines with ease soon as you push the volts up.. absolutely amazing machine .. keep up the good work man

So I ve been a loyal to the coil person for many many years now but age has somewhat weakened my hands and I have been searching for a trusty alternative for years.I have tried some of the big brand quite expensive rotaries and I have not found anything quite as reliable as my valknut 4. I have held off reviewing till I hit a 6 month anniversary and I must say this thing is a very trusty workhorse. T use it all day everyday. It is perfect all rounder. The carts fit nice all brands . The machine has a good balance,no noticeable vibration strong enough for good solid one pass lines. One machine does what I would need 4 coils to do! What a result! The main thing for me is the reliability. I haven't had a non coil that is this reliable ever and it's made in the uk and I can ask the builder anything and I don't have to send it back to Germany/Russia/ USA just to be told fixing costs almost the same as a new machine Thank you to Valknut. You ve made some old hands very happy

Hey!! Just wanted to thank you for the machine, Made me feel so more confident that I can swap from small to larger configurations with ease! The battery..blimey, I was wondering if it was ever going to run out of juice Hoping to purchase the 3.0 soon too!!! Thank you for such awesome customer service too

l've officially been using my machine for 3 months now and all my other machines have become expensive paperweights. lt's well and truly my daily runner now. Use it for absolutely everything, the battery life is impressive too. Lovely machines

Hiya guys just wanted to say after 2 weeks with the machines me and my Co worker would like to thank you for making our job so much more pleasant and efficient after 25+ years of tattooing a machine that just does the job,, Thank you so much

Used my new beauty for the first time today and my god you did not exaggerate how amazing it is. When I first got it out the box I was a bit worried as it's heavier than my f* max machine and I have carpel tunnel but honestly it's not! I don't know if you've done something fancy pants with the balance of it but it didn't feel remotely heavy at all which was a pleasant surprise!!! I used a 9rs to do some lining today and it went in like butter, and my black was FULLY saturated with a single pass no bother. I do often only single pass anyway but I had to do less if that makes sense. I feel like if someone does normally need a second pass they wouldn't with this which is amazing!! I seriously cannot thank you enough for this wizard machine

Hey dude...I've used this machine for everything, lining is awesome straightest lines I can ever produce, colour packing, water colours its so smooth and even smother for shading, the blends are fire...steeple shades, and black work...this machine is gods tire... I've even run it for 3 hours on the last charge bar and it will still see me though too the end of the day... I've been told so much about your machine and all of it was true definatly the best machine on the market.

Hey dude, seen you're posting reviews so thought I'd drop you one since it's from a slightly different perspective due to me not actually being an artist Wanted to get my partner a Valknut as a present and congrats on the opening of her new studio. Seen as I'm not a tattooist I didn't think I'd have much luck purchasing one however I couldn't have been more wrong. Andy helped me massively with this in parts I wasn't aware of and made sure I got the perfect machine for her.

Having used at least one of every evolution of the Valknut brand machines this latest model is a game changer. The new ergonomic grip is great and the attention to detail like the up/down button on the redesigned battery module being the Valknut logo is a nice 8 touch. Receiving the machine in its own branded flight case along with an extra battery, grip, lube and charger is more than generous for an already generous price.

Waited months for a new batch of the vaulknut to be released as I'd heard great things, it's my first every cart machine and I have to say it's an outstanding piece of equipment Definitely a game changer. l've done about 5 decent sized tattoos with it so far and I'm in love with it. The fact you get 2 batteries with it just makes so much sense to me. l've been forgetting it's got a built in battery and keep pressing random times on the floor thinking it has a pedal. Also can I just say and questions I asked leading up to the buying process were answered promptly and it really put my mind at rest changing to a new type of machine l've never used before. 5 star from me

Bought the 3mm and 4mm stroke machine combo and I would recommend if you're a colour/neo trad artist like me to also buy this combo...the 4mm puts lines in like hot water through snow and the 3mm packs colour exactly to the level you want it no fuss, I was sceptical about these machines at first but after seeing loads of artists using them thought I'd give then a go...first 4 hours of using them and I'lI never own a different machine again...11/10

Sooo after a couple of months using the machines and trying them with different styles I can hands down say these are the best machines l've used to date, not only are they very user friendly but are super comfortable to use. The customer service is top tier, The machine quality is top tier. Any questions you have are answered the same day and you talk to a human being not a sales man who you can clearly tell cares about the product

Hi mate I'm just messaging you to let you know that 1 am in love with your machine I have tattooed for 12 hours so far on this piece and I have never felt so comfortable with a machine keep up the good work and I'll be ordering a different stroke machine soon thank you.

Lad, so I used your machine yesterday and today ! And shocked ain't the word man !!! These are outstanding !! Iv literally just sold my main machine coz these are so good !!! I got the 3mm,3.5mm and 4mm now I want the 4.6mm . Honestly can not get over how good they are !! Thank you for making these machine that honestly make me enjoy tattooing again

What do I say? This machine is the f***ing bees knees! I don't think there's anything this machine can't do! lt'll push a line like a hot knife though butter, saturates black like a dream and is just such fun to use! I'l| be honest it makes all my other machines feel like I got them from a cereal box

Gotta say mate, I think they're awesome. Been running the 4.0 and 3.0 cams and really liking their versatility. My first tattoo with them was a huge 3 day Egyptian thigh piece and it made it so much easier for me. Batteries lasted the entire 3 days and I had the replacement batteries ready to rock for the rest of the week Looking forward to continuing using them and seeing what else they're capable of. Thank you man.

So after switching to B* wands I always thought that was it and I had found the machine I needed and wasn't I oh so WRONG... all I can say wow the 4.0mm mjolnir does everything and I'm more that happy with the beast Customer service...now that is second to none super fast delivery and the main man behind it is always there to answer whatever questions you have Valknut all the way

Well what can I say , I've pretty much used most highend machines available. Got my 4mm stroke Mjolnir and was completely blown away with it. The build quality, accessories that came with it and 2 batteries is an absolute steal at the price I've used machines that are more than double the price tag of the Mjolnir and don't come close to this awesome machine. Customer service is second to none, excellent communication and super speedy delivery (literally the next day). I'm so impressed that l've ordered another today in a different stroke Viva la Valknut

Hey mate, just gotta say... after doing my first tattoo with the 3.0mm Mjolnir today, I've gotta say.. 1/2 Holy shit bro, this thing is just insanely good. It takes the common sense laws of tattooing and kipper slaps them, it's madness, I never thought I'd ever use less than a 3.5mm cam, but this thing is the best machine l've ever used.. and it does everything and more incredible

Held off writing a review until I'd really tested out the Valknut 4.0mm. I'm throughly impressed with it. I've really put it to work and it's handled every task with ease Lining, shading, colour packing, stippling and large blackout work it's been surprising versatile When I first got it I was still seting up my usual machine from one of the most well known companies but at the end of the tattoo that machine never got used. Valknut is now my daily driver.

Your Valknut machines are by far the best l've used. I don't need to be little miss fiddle sticks with it like l've been with other machines l've used. Im happy every time I wrap it up for the next gig because I know it's just gonna help me tattoo better by taking the work out of it. Makes it a fun piece of kit to play with.
