Roses Tattoo Machine Frame by Reklaw280 Roses Tattoo Machine Frame by Reklaw280
This is a walker style tattoo machine frame fabricated by Firehorse Irons, which I engraved and inlayed with Argentium Silver. The finish is chemical blued and brushed.
(edit: updated the photo to a better resolution)

UPDATE:
This machine frame has been sold, but if you are interested in a custom frame like it, send me a note and we can work out a deal.

UPDATE II:
Thanks for the Daily Deviation and thanks for all the great comments! For those wondering what this thingy is, its the frame for a tattoo machine. Its like the chassis on a car. You put all the parts inside and it drives the needle that makes tattoos. If you look through my album you can see a machine built up.

Daily Deviation

Roses Tattoo Machine Frame by ~Reklaw280 is a wonderful example of metal engraving. It's even more impressive because it was all engraved by hand only with basic tools, the patience and detail achieved are stunning. ( Suggested by Okadvent and Featured by Talty )

Hey boss, I'm interested in a nice fully adjustable shading frame. Possibly a 2 piece frame with adjustable rear clamp. What're your prices?

Awesome, Bro. I appreciate it. It doesn't have to have an independent rear saddle I just enjoy being able to fine tune it without having to bend and therefore weaken the rear springs soo much.

That's pretty awesome. Ever since I saw Aaron Cain's and Todd Hlavaty's custom engraved machines, I've always wanted to try it. What did you use to engrave it?

It was in fallowing Aaron Cain's footsteps that I figured out engraving. I started out thinking that I was going to do a bunch of biomechanical machines, but as I got further into studying the art and design of engraving that I was entranced by the scroll. The spiral scroll is the basis for not only scrollwork, but you can see it in a lot of Mr. Cain's biomechanical work. I use a hand engraver to cut these designs into mild steel or brass. There are in-progress shots in my gallery of various techniques.

Perhaps you should consider doing a few pistol grips- I could see a femme fatale shooting from the hip with a gun with roses.

Most tattoo machine builders will tell you that its not so much the number of wraps as the thickness of the wire used. I'm not sure what eventually went into this particular machine, as I sold the frame to someone that built it on their own. Its like building your own lightsaber- you gain a greater understanding of your tools when you build them yourself.

What is a machine frame? It looks more like some engraving you would find on a gun. Either way is is outstanding work.
