When we sat down years ago with a fellow tattooer and discussed what was wrong with the movement into disposable grips we realised it was all in the stem. Moving from metal grips to plastic created flex and made the tattooing process feel unstable. With years of development, research and trial and error we created our premium Original Tuff Tube now made with anodized aluminum back stems that reduce the vibration and have no flex! We have improved our tips and our MAG's which are now an open wash tip but acts like a closed tip. No splatter like conventional open wash tips and a good load of ink every time you dip. These wash out super easy. Our rounds now have a slash cut to better see your needles and draw up ink. You'll be happy to tattoo all day with these! Only available in 30mm grips. 15/box
Why Aluminium over other materials?
- Reduced vibration and noise: We tried many other metals like carbon fibre and by far aluminium created strength without added vibration and noise.
- Light weight: While other material may have strength it often comes with added weight. Added weight means greater shipping costs to us and then to you and harder to travel with.
- No oxidization- Cleanliness: This is the big one, we anodize our aluminum to ensure no rust or oxidizing like materials such as stainless steel. When tattooing we all try to ensure the cleanest setup, it starts with the equipment you use.

These are the best tubes I’ve ever used that are disposable. I wish the grip was a little bit farther back from the vice end of the stem so I could use it on some of my older coils, but other than that they are perfectDisposable tubes.
If you use disposable tubes and don't use these, well sir/madame you are as Will Ferrell would say... and IDIOT!
I always use steel tubes and searched so hard trying to find something that feels the same. I’ve used disposables from pretty much everyone in the industry, and never liked any of them enough to keep buying. Vibration is crazy and feeling like I have no control sucks. Or they're too light and the machine feels like a weight attached to the back of your hand. But these tuff tubes are a different story. They are such a solid tube. So sturdy and just enough weight to make everything feel balanced. They are the closest thing to a steel tube that I’ve found. I love them so much. I’m so happy to use one every chance I get. It’s a shame to throw them away!!
I'm an apprentice, my mentor has me using these tubes because they are awesome!
My Favourite tubes by far. Comfortable. Consistent. Excellent performance.
These are the best disposables I have ever used. They are so comfortable and stable. I usually prefer the larger grip for myself but I’ll go with the smaller grip if there is a sale lol. Either size is still Comfortable. Love the clear tip so I can really see what’s going on. Nothing else compares anymore! Lol
combines the sturdy feel of a metal tube with the peace of mind and convenience of using disposables. Worth every penny.
Best desposibles on the market!
Extremely happy with these tubes! The grip seems longer which helps with precision and comfort, and as always the tube stem is solid and allows for clean and consistent linework. Another thing to mention, they fit perfectly in all of my coil machines! Keep it up!
