Tattoo machines on planes.

Posted by Liz on 01/26/10

Hey, I saw some old posts about taking tattoo machines on a plane and it seemed to be ok,just wondering if anyone has had any trouble with taking thier machines on carry on lately (i realize i would have to check in my needles and inks).
Also does it make a difference with domestic and international flights?
I have sent machines and ink from Australia before and spent a lot of money on shipping and insurance and when the boxex arrived they were badly damaged...lucky my machines were in hard cases!

I've never had problems. I'd call your airline and ask though, and I always tell the xray scanner people that I have tattoo machines, they'll usually ask you to open the case to see them but I've never had any problems.

I flew to Singapore and Australia with 15 machines in my backpack they just asked me what they were.
The other 15 went in my suitcase that they lost for a day. So def fly with your machines with you.

I just travel with them in my carry-on. I once kept them in my front pocket.

A terrorist could possibly disguise a bomb, disassembled and assembled into tattoo frames. But they dont check them.
