Usually, "at home" piercers, "scratcher" as they are know are not very well seen around here, though there are some cases with some success like Tattoobox.
Have you considered applying for an apprenticeship at a tattoo parlor?
It would help you greatly and teach you things you simply cannot "figure out"
Like it seems there is a lot to learn about cross contamination, sterilization and such which are as important as the tattoo gun, specially from the costumer POV.

Something like this is a good basic tattoo machine.

A "kit" is basically a cheap piece of eBay crap a 14 year old can maim their friends with. Professionals buy high quality goods from a wholesaler.

giving people hepatitis
tattooing on people
tattooing on yourself
bragging about doing jailhouse tattoos, nobody cares or is impressed
doing things where you have no clue how to do them properly, ever hear of cross contamination?
seriously. Try learning at least one proper thing about what you are doing.
