About Us

Lineage Needle Co. was formed in the summer of 2018 by Fred Pinckard and Josh Autrey, these like-minded tattooers were dissatisfied with the quality of pre-made tattoo needles on the market. The goal of Lineage Needle Co. is to bring high quality tattoo needles to the trade at an affordable price, making them the true working class tattooer's needle. With over 35 years' experience in tattooing, we understand the finer points required to provide a quality needle. We've spent years learning and honing the craft of tattooing, which included mixing pigments, building/tuning machines, creating sellable tattoo flash as well as the art of needle making. This hands-on experience has allowed us to know exactly what we are looking for when it comes to the materials, construction and performance it takes to make a high quality needle that will hold up throughout a tattoo. With tireless amounts of research, development, and testing we bring to you what we think are the most affordable and high quality tattoo needles on the market today.

Lineage needles are built to our personal specs using what we believe are the safest materials available. We use 316L stainless steel for our pins as well as our bars, and a high quality lead free silver bearing solder to hold it all together. We stand on the shoulders of giants to bring you the quality you deserve at an affordable price.
