In their latest video, Killer Ink Tattoo gives its first impressions of two brand new machines from Cheyenne, the Sol Luna and Sol Terra.
The Sol Luna and Sol Terra will be joining Cheyenne’s Sol range, following on from the acclaimed Sol Nova rotary.
Both machines have two operating modes, known as HardDrive and SENSIDRIVE. These modes allow you to choose between working at a controlled or regulated speed by altering the motor control.
With the HardDrive function, your machine will run at a controlled speed, with no give and a consistent hard hit.
Turning the SensiSwitch will enable the new SENSIDRIVE function, meaning that the speed of the machine will be adjusted depending on the surface that you’re tattooing. This is due to the motor reacting more sensitively to the resistance of the skin.
The main difference between the two machines is the stroke length. The Sol Luna has a 2.5 mm stroke length, whereas the Sol Terra offers a 4 mm stroke length.
