HM Team, hanging out with Dmitri Rechnoy

We love the works we receive from the cold Russia as they are not cold at all!! Some designs are so full of color and textures they leave you speachless, so we contacted our colleague Dmitri Rechnoy from XK Tattoo in Moscow to get to know what's behind his relationship with our machines. He started tattooing in 1993 and he has been loyal to Old School style since then. In fact, he's one of the best artists of the traditional tattoo nowadays. He's been working with HM Machines for more than 15 years so he knows our babies very, very well!!

You have been using HM Machines for a long time. Which are your favourites?

I love Franky because of its power, the stroke and the weight. It's quite light and comfortable for my works! I also like the Classic as it's perfect for coloring, shading and lining.

So you use more than just one machine for your designs, right?

Yes, sure! I usually use 2 or 3 liners and 1 or 2 shaders. That's why I like Franky and Classic, as they are what I need.

We are happy to know our babies behave well at your studio! What do you like the most of HM machines, in general?

HM machines are reliable and simple, which means they are easy to use and hard to break. Their motors are excellent and my work is more productive when I use them.
