Aloha x VK "Turquoise Matrix" (Liner/Shader/Packer)


 The Aloha x VK "Turquoise Matrix" is now available as a custom peorder! A one-of-a-kind full-frame machine made with a hand-cut steel side plate and the new claw vise. This vise will hold onto anything! The frame geometry is designed to accommodate liner, shader, or color packer configurations. Please leave your preferred machine specifications in the special notes section along with any additional information you feel nesesarry. 


This machine features my most popular material, the Turquoise Matrix. It's a turquoise truestone material made from natural ore, giving it a brilliant color you just can't beat. The contrast with the hammered steel is beautiful. 



Machine details:  Turquoise Matrix Trustone side accent, Brazed Steel Frame, Hammer Peened Sideplate, Decorative File Work, Hand-Stamped Copper Decorative Band, Pure Iron Coil Cores and A-bar, Brass/Copper Hardware and the Aloha Anvil Thumb Screw! Each machine is a one of a kind custom build, engraved and stamped with the signature Aloha markers mark!


About VK and the collab

As some of you may already know, Mike Mertz has recently passed away. May he rest in peace. He was well known in the industry for his precision tools and Tattoo Machine parts. He has literally been the backbone to many builders around the world and his tools make life easy. Together we made some slight modifications to his original claw base design and will be featuring them on my new full-frame machines. Before his passing, I only received a small batch of 25 bases so the Aloha x VK collaboration run will be extremely limited. 


 Please refer to the "preorder expected shipping date" for the build time and estimated delivery. You will receive an email confirmation once payment is made and secondary notification once the build is completed and shipped. Keep an eye out for our Instagram stories and posts. You may see your machine in the works. Aloha!
