Please check out the images of the Milton Zeis tattoo machine shown above. Someone recently reached out to ask if anyone knows who may have stamped a “W” into the tattoo machine frames. If you have any idea please comment below.

    Percy Waters….Waters always stamped the W or rather upsidedown “M” on all the machines he casted…the “B” Model or SZ-? We’re both cast by Waters, early, then Zeis or someone casted the others…

    The W is for Waters…Percy Waters…He helped a lot of other people in the supply business get frames cast…So as a way of identification and as a makers mark, he had them marked with a W…
