Advice for Skin 2 settings
Based on the usage of the Skin 2, every artist figures out how to set the machine's softness and the voltage to use. The following suggestions have been compiled by our tattoo friends which use the Skin 2 regularly. The average voltage setting is from 9 to 10.5 Volts. A hard setting is preferable if you use liner or larger Magnum needles. In this case, close the GIVE Cap completely and then turn the GIVE counter-clockwise roughly one full turn. If you use small and medium-sized Magnum needles a softer setting is recommended. The GIVE should be opened 2-3 turns counter-clockwise. Please note that the machine should never be used if the GIVE Cap is completely closed or opened with more than 3 turns. These setting recommendations are purely individual. The machine can also be used at a lower voltage.
Use a GOOD QUALITY POWER UNIT and do not exceed 12 Volts.
SKIN 2 is a new conception rotary machine for tattooing. The main innovations are:
GIVE adjustment of needle hitting intensity
Possibility to adjust the needle hitting strength (GIVE / Softness of the machine). This adjustment allows to set the machine “harder” for lining and “softer” adapted for colouring, filling and shading. The adjustment notches on the cap of the GIVE allow intermediate set ups.
Tightening Needle Bar
With this accessory no more rubber bands are needed to tighten the needle bar.
In addition to the classic clip-cord connection, SKIN 2 is equipped with a RCA connection, which guarantees a constant current flow.
Adjustment of needle excursion
Following replacement excenters for needle excursion adjustment are available: 2,6mm, 3,7mm (serial excenter), 4.5mm and 5,5mm (replacement excenters are available separately).
Lightweight, silent, vibrations are reduced to a minimum

I was thinking of geting the new skin 2 for christmas since i gave the one I got her in London convention already and she loves it. She recon its better than the stigma hyper.
Ordered in advance at Milan tattoo convention, it has arrived today and I have tried it promptly, really lightweight, handy and versatile, the adjustment of needle throw strength and the tightening bar make it a magnificent machine for lining and soft shadings, after 23 years of experience as tattoo artist I think this is the future of tattoo machines… personally I have stopped to use standard coil machines stepwise about one year ago… since a few months I use only the new generation rotary machines… what should I say… who buys it loves it for sure..
