Reliably Safe and Effective
Legend Needle Cartridges and Traditional On-Bar Needles are crafted by industry experts, tested by artists, and backed by some of the world's most renowned tattoo professionals. Since 2002, our focus has and always will be on the quality of our products, but more specifically, on the excellence of our needles.
As one of the first needle manufacturers in the tattoo industry, we dedicated ourselves to researching and developing the sharpest and most effective needles in the market. Through direct sourcing of materials and prototyping processes, we've built the foundational components to allow our needles to consistently deliver exceptional ink flow every time.
The Best Materials Only
Each needle configuration is produced using extremely sharp, flexible needles that are grouped together with the maximum level of precision. All of our needles are produced using 316 medical-grade stainless steel. Conventionally, most needles used for tattooing are manufactured with 304 stainless steel. Instead of following the crowd, we made sure to only use the highest grade of initial materials. In comparison, 316 stainless steel bears a greater resistance to chemical solutions, is more durable, easier to fabricate and to clean than alternative grade steels. Using an intricate process that thoroughly sharpens the 316 stainless steel, Legend Needles are created with the finest taper.
For our cartridges, each needle also contains an outer casing that helps reduce unnecessary friction between the cartridge tip and the needle grouping. All Legend Cartridge Needles are developed with a needle stabilizing system that ensures a fixed position. In addition, each cartridge includes a complete safety membrane system that prevents any backflow of ink into your machine. The safety membrane also offers a soft, effortless rebound and touch that provides a smooth release of ink onto the skin. All Legend Cartridges and Traditional On-Bar Needles are sterilized using EO Gas and certified for use by professionals to ensure the utmost safety and sanitary measures to you and your clients.
Committed at Every Step
Superior Stainless Steel
In developing the perfect needle, we began with sourcing the best materials. Each Legend Needle is manufactured using 316 stainless steel - one of the strongest steel alloys. We make sure that every needle is produced with the finest taper.
All of Legend Needles are manufactured at one of our cutting-edge facilities to maintain a high level of quality assurance. Each needle is sterilized using ethylene oxide (EO) gas, individually sealed and packaged to meet industry health standards.
Trusted to Perform
Legend Needles are the preferred choice by tattoo artists around the world. With two decades of manufacturing experience, we've dedicated ourselves to producing a flawless needle that's not only flexible but also sharp and durable.
