There is an older saying that any artist is also only as good as whatever tools are used by them. This is certainly true for tattoo artists, especially since they're doing something that is so personal to people and that requires such detail, precision and skill. Once you find the right equipment, such as a tattoo machine for instance, you'll be able to even further improve upon your skills.
However, if you're a tattoo artist and even if you're able to design an incredible tattoo, the tattoo might not be as incredible if the tattoo machine you're using isn't a good product that delivers favorable results for your customers.
Having tattoo supplies that are well made and durable are essential to any tattoo artist, and even if you have to go through tons of tattooing kits just to figure out what's right for you, it's absolutely worth it, because that's an investment into something that will only bring you a return on your investment and time. Simply compare it to a contractor who has a cheap hammer, and the hammer breaks off after only a few uses or isn't heavy enough to adequately drive nails into something they're building; the same goes for you as a tattoo artist, as you have to have a tool that you can rely on and that won't be able to support your strength and fully meet your expectations and your customers. Experimenting with different tattooing kits will allow you to make the most accurate decision possible.
Also similar a carpenter's tools, not only will you want to make sure you're purchasing a tattoo machine and tattooing kits that live up to your expectations and that get the job done right, you'll also want to consider what kind of work you're going to be doing. Will you be doing tattoos the majority of the time that require a lot of shading, color that is solid, or lots of lining work? Considering what work you are taking on will also determine what tools you should have.
Tattooing is your skill, and to not only get the job done, you confidently tackle the job and finish it well.
