.016" Thick Flat Tattoo Back Spring Made of Blue Carbon Steel
Each of these Precision brand tattoo back springs is made from .016"-thick blue carbon steel. The innovative design controls where the spring flexes within a working armature assembly. Both ends are pronged to allow you to easily insert this back spring into your conventional armature assembly and mount it to your tattoo machine frame.
Our Precision .016" thick blue carbon steel tattoo back springs are sold flat to ensure there's no loss of temper in the steel, so you'll get perfect springs every time.
Learn how to insert front and rear/main springs into an armature assembly, what combinations of front and back spring weights to use for different effects and more in our How Coil Tattoo Machine Springs Work article. You can also scroll through the alternate product images above to see our Tips on Tattoo Coil Machine Spring Set-up graphic, or you can view a downloadable PDF version of the springs tip sheet to reference when choosing the best front and back spring size combinations for lining versus shading tattooing work.
