Precision .016"-Thick Tapered Tattoo Back Spring Made of Blue Carbon Steel
Each of these tapered Precision brand tattoo back springs is made from .016" blue carbon steel and has pronged ends that allow for easy installation and removal. They're designed to work with any conventional armature bar. The innovative design of these blue carbon steel tattoo back springs controls where the spring flexes within a working armature assembly.
Our Precision .016" thick tapered blue carbon steel tattoo back springs are sold flat to ensure that there's no loss of temper in the steel, yielding perfect springs every time.
Learn how to insert front and back springs into an armature assembly, what combinations of front and rear spring weights to use for different effects and more in our How Coil Tattoo Machine Springs Work article. You can also click through the alternate images above to see our Tips on Coil Tattoo Machine Spring Set-up sheet or view a downloadable PDF version here to learn more about the best spring size combinations to use for lining versus shading.
