London Tattoo Convention 2019 Video

The London Tattoo Convention celebrated its 15th anniversary this year and we were there to capture the festivities!

Our latest video features a host of incredible tattoo artists, some great memories from past conventions, and the debut of ECOTAT, a new plant-based, eco-friendly line of products.

Check it out below!

The 15th edition of the London Tattoo Convention was another exciting event, with artists old and new coming together in a weekend of tattooing that managed to push the bar even further.

We were delighted to see so many Killer Ink sponsored artists on-stage receiving awards for the amazing work that they produced in London.

The most coveted ‘Best of Show’ honour was bestowed on our artists Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith and Rich Harris, who collaborated at the show to create a jaw-dropping full leg sleeve.

Our sponsored artists also managed to complete a clean sweep of the ‘Best of Day’ awards, with third, second and first place going to Damian Gorski, Anrijs Straume, and Sandra Daukshta, respectively.

Carlos Fabra took home ‘Best Black & Grey’ for his killer Peaky Blinders-themed leg sleeve, while Mads Thill won ‘Best Back Piece/Coverage’ for his fantastic work.

Rounding off the awards was Yarson Stahowic who managed to claim ‘3rd Best Realism’ for an awesome Guardians of the Galaxy-themed sleeve.

Cheyenne – Sol Nova New Colours, SOL Grip, PU IV Power Supply

Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment has continued to introduce brilliant new products to the tattooing market in 2019 with the release of the all-new SOL Grip and PU IV power supply, as well as a range of fresh colours for the Sol Nova machine.

Cheyenne's most recent pen-style rotary, the Sol Nova, is now available in various new, eye-catching colours: Red, Gold, Silver, Purple and Orange.

The Cheyenne Sol Nova is a light yet powerful pen-style rotary that runs very quietly with minimum vibration. Thanks to a powerful brushless DC motor within, the Sol Nova packs a punch, resulting in faster ink saturation. However, its quiet and soft operational mode means that it remains gentle on the skin.

The weight of the Sol Nova is shifted to the front, allowing for optimum control and accuracy. The shape of the machine also makes it easy to use and wrap.

A great all-round rotary, the Cheyenne Sol Nova has a 3.5mm stroke length, making it ideal for precise lining, as well as soft shading.

Next up from Cheyenne is the SOL Grip, which has been specially-designed for use with the company’s latest SOL Luna and SOL Terra rotary tattoo machines.

The new Cheyenne SOL Grip is also compatible with the Cheyenne HAWK Spirit and Thunder tattoo machines, as well as rotaries with a collared grip connection.

The ergonomic design of the SOL Grip makes it comfortable to handle during longer tattooing sessions, while also being easy to clean and wrap/cover.

Made in Germany, the Cheyenne SOL Grip is built from aluminium and is available in three sizes: 21 mm, 25 mm and 33 mm.

Cheyenne also added a new addition to its range of PU power supplies recently, the PU IV. The Cheyenne Hawk PU IV has been developed in co-operation with world-renowned tattoo artists and is the recommended power supply to use with the Cheyenne SOL Nova, SOL Luna and SOL Terra rotary machines.

With an operating voltage range from 4.7 to 12.5 Volts DC, the Cheyenne Hawk PU IV is ideal for the low-frequency operation of its SOL family of rotary tattoo machines.

Thanks to its compact size, the Cheyenne Hawk PU IV is the perfect power supply for both tattoo studios and taking on the road to conventions and guest spots.

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Mads Thill

Mads Thill is an incredible Danish tattoo artist who consistently produces some of the biggest and best black and grey work around.

In early 2011, after having no luck with tattoo studios in the Danish cities of Aalborg and Copenhagen, Mads Thillemann Hansen, now known as Mads Thill, managed to bag himself an apprenticeship at Bad Boyz Tattoo in Frederikssund.

Over the years, Mads evolved his style from bright and colourful new school tattoos to large, intricate black and grey pieces – a style he is now perhaps best known for.

Towards the end of 2017, Mads moved to Ink Link Tattoo studio in Roskilde, Denmark, where you can find him tattooing his eye-catching work today.

It’s not just in Denmark where Mads has been turning heads, as he’s managed to pick up a variety of awards over the course of his tattooing career. Most recently, Mads scooped ‘Best Back Piece/Coverage’ at the 2019 London Tattoo Convention for a huge piece that spanned from the back of his client’s neck to his lower legs.

Mads creates his incredible tattoos using various supplies from Killer Ink Tattoo, including Inkjecta machines.

Sunskin Primus Tattoo Machines

Sunskin Primus tattoo machines are highly reliable rotaries that are compatible with both cartridges and standard tattoo needles.

With four rotaries in the range, it can be tough to pick one which fits your needs as a tattooer. Should you go for the Special Hybrid, One, Solid or Easy model?

In our latest video, we run through the features of each machine and what makes them similar or different to the other Primus rotaries from Sunskin.

Make sure to check out our video below!

Silverback Ink® Black Pack

Looking for the best black tattoo inks around? Feast your eyes on the Silverback Ink® Black Pack.

The Black Pack features four bottles of Silverback Ink®'s best-selling black tattoo inks: XXX Black, InstaBlack, Stupid Black, and Black Th1rt3en.

Up first is the latest addition to Silverback Ink®’s range, Black Th1rt3en. The number may be unlucky for some, but this black tattoo ink may just be the one for you as its perfect for any tattooing styles, from dot works to portraits!

The viscosity and surface tension of Black Th1rt3en is completely different to what Silverback Ink® has made in the past. Black Th1rt3en has a good body to it, just a bit thicker than water, and fully coats the needle when tattooing.

If you’re looking for a thinner black ink than Black Th1rt3en, check out Silverback Ink® Stupid Black, which has an increased surface tension when compared to the brand’s other thin inks, InstaBlack and XXX Black.

As with Silverback Ink® Black Th1rt3en, Stupid Black goes into the skin at a normal speed, so it’s great for a range of tattooing styles.

Silverback Ink® InstaBlack is another black ink with a thin viscosity and was developed when trying to scale-up production of Stupid Black.

InstaBlack contains the exact same ingredients as Stupid Black, but just mixed in a different way. The result of this means that InstaBlack goes into the skin more velvety than Stupid Black, with the latter having more of a sticky consistency.

The thinnest black ink in the Silverback Ink® range is XXX Black, which goes into the skin super fast and easy, making it ideal for both outlining and shading.

Formulated and manufactured by tattoo artist Randy Scott Howell, all tattoo inks from Silverback Ink® are vegan-friendly and comply with EU Resolution ResAP(2008)1.

Not sure which black tattoo ink from Silverback Ink® is best for you? Get your hands on the Black Pack and try them all out for yourself!

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Lena Diamanti

Colour realism specialist Lena Diamanti is a Greek-born tattoo artist with a flair for detailed, eye-catching work.

After spending countless childhood hours drawing anything and everything around her, Lena took her art one step further about three years ago by becoming a professional tattoo artist.

Taking inspiration from world-class artists like Nikko Hurtado and Dmitriy Samohin, Lena has developed her style to be colour realism-focused, although you will also find her dabbling in black and grey.

Such is the high level of detail in her work, you would be forgiven for thinking that her tattoos are photographs and not body art!

Although originally from Greece, you’ll find Lena mostly on the road these days at guest spots and conventions around the globe. No matter what studio across Europe and the rest of the world she finds herself in, you can be sure that Lena’s work is as incredible as ever!

Lena uses various supplies from Killer Ink Tattoo to create her realistic colour tattoos, including Hustle Butter Deluxe tattoo care, World Famous Tattoo Ink, and Dermalize Pro.

To see more of her stunning work, make sure to follow Lena Diamanti on Facebook and Instagram!

Range of Brother Printers

We offer a range of Brother PocketJet printers for tattoo artists that are looking for a rugged, durable yet compact mobile printing solution.

Whether it’s the latest PJ-763 printer, the Wi-Fi-operating PJ-773, the PJ-723 predecessor, or even the DS-820W document scanner, you can be sure that Brother has a solution for you.

The Brother PocketJet PJ-763MFI comes with Bluetooth and USB connections that will conveniently link to your tablet, smartphone, PC or laptop.

Thanks to its integrated iAP(MFi) Bluetooth profile, this thermal mobile printer can also be connected easily to Apple iOS devices.

In addition, the Bluetooth protocol allows for a fast and secure connection, letting you print up to eight pages per minute. Simply connect and begin printing!

The Brother PocketJet PJ-773 is similar to the PJ-763MFI, but it focuses on Wi-FI connectivity, rather than Bluetooth.

Brother’s PJ-773 simply connects to your devices via Wi-Fi and allows you to begin printing quickly! Not only is Wi-Fi data transmission fast and secure, the availability of Wireless Direct support ensures that you can send your design directly to the printer without needing to be connected to a Wi-Fi router.

We also stock the Brother PocketJet PJ-723, which offers the same great portable solution as the PJ-773, but without the Wi-Fi connectivity.

Instead of using Wi-Fi, you can connect the PJ-723 to your laptop or computer using a USB connection.

All PocketJet printers from Brother are portable and will fit neatly in a drawer or travel case, making them perfect for use in your studio or taking on the road to conventions and guest spots.

The direct thermal printing technology of Brother’s range of PocketJet printers ensures reliability quality, whatever the conditions or environment.

While printing your stencil, the Brother PocketJet printers recognise the change of tones on your design. This means that you will be able to clearly see the areas of your design that change tone or shade during tattooing, instead of just the outline.

Don’t forget to check out the Brother DS-820W Portable Wireless Document Scanner to go along with your PocketJet printer! Brother’s DS-820W scanner is perfect for scanning in your design prior to printing it out as a stencil.

ECOTAT to Debut at London Tattoo Convention

Killer Ink Tattoo will be debuting ECOTAT's new range of eco-friendly products at the 2019 London Tattoo Convention!

The London Tattoo Convention is perhaps the biggest and best convention around, so what better time for the debut of ECOTAT’s plant-based tattoo products?

For those who don’t know, ECOTAT are the providers of plant-based alternatives to conventional single-used plastic products that are used during tattooing.

ECOTAT products consist of a range of compostable and biodegradable bioplastics that are made with materials that are naturally-derived, plant-based and sustainable.

The primary material used in ECOTAT’s products is Cornstarch PLA (Polylactic Acid). Compared to conventional plastics, the production of PLA uses 65% less energy and generates 68% fewer greenhouse gases.

When ECOTAT products are incinerated, significantly fewer greenhouse gases are emitted and they don’t emit toxic fumes like their oil-based counterparts.

Make sure to keep up to date with ECOTAT’s developments by following them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! And if you’re at the 2019 London Tattoo Convention, make sure to come and say hi!
