Tattoo machines require DC or direct current. Direct current is
the unidirectional flow of current. This is opposite the AC type of
current, which means alternating. Alternating current is typically
found in the wall outlets of your home. Since the electronic components
in a tattoo machine work off of the DC type of current it
is imperative that you use the proper power source.

      You need a tattoo power supply! They are A/C plug – and produce DC voltage. Check out PULSE tattoo Power supplies! Do Google search.
