Stigma-Rotary® at Milano Tattoo Convention 2018

Check out this video from Stigma-Rotary® of their Pro Artists Uncl Paul Knows, Goran Micic and Robi Pena working with new Stigma® tattoo machines at the 2018 Milano Tattoo Convention.

Our good friends at Stigma® were in Milan to demonstrate their new Hyper V4, Stylist and Spear machines, with the help of Uncl Paul Knows.

Give the video a watch below!


Founded across the pond in the United States, NeoTat has been producing high-quality rotary tattoo machines for 14 years.

NeoTat was founded by American Ray Webb, a man with an extensive background in electrical and mechanical engineering. Ray began building tattoo machine parts in the early ‘90s for a tattoo supply company and would use the experience in his own machines.

Back in 2004, Ray made his first tattoo machine of his own original design, utilising an entirely new mechanism. And so, NeoTat was born.

“I had always, since I was a kid, hoped to develop and sell my own product,” said Ray, speaking about his first machine. “Over the years, I have made many products and designs for other companies and now I had my own.”

It was a rocky start for Ray and NeoTat as the tattoo industry wasn’t quite ready for a linear tattoo machine of a rotary design.

With a lot of graft and persistence, Ray managed to break through the barriers in 2009 with endorsements from popular artists like Joshua Carlton, who called him a “world class machine builder”.

Each and every rotary tattoo machine built by NeoTat is proudly manufactured in the USA from the best materials and components around. All NeoTat machines are hand-fitted and assembled before going through a rigorous testing process.

We stock various rotaries from NeoTat at Killer Ink Tattoo, including the Original, Vivace and the latest Stregato machines.

The NeoTat Original is a consistent, smooth-running rotary tattoo machine that is offered in four colours. It is available with an RCA or Clip Cord connection and three stroke lengths: short (1.8mm), standard (2.5mm) and long (3.5mm).

NeoTat’s Original machines feature a lightweight, ergonomic design that is easy to disassemble and clean.

Following on from the Original is the NeoTat Vivace tattoo machine, a lighter rotary that features a removable, interchangeable motor cartridge. This allows for quick and easy adjustments to the machine’s stroke length.

As with the Original, the Vivace has three stroke lengths: short (2.5mm), medium (3.5mm) and long (4.2mm).

The design is ergonomic and offers a low level of vibration, which helps to cut down on the fatigue associated with long tattoo sessions.

The latest rotary from NeoTat is the Stregato, a dedicated cartridge machine that is smooth-running and has enough power to push even the largest cartridges.

The NeoTat Stregato tattoo machine features the company’s unique EyeLoc locking bar loop system. This allows the artist a choice of soft or hard disposable drive bar cushions, giving you the choice between a softer or harder hit.

As with all NeoTat machines, the Stregato has an ergonomically-shaped body that fits comfortably in your hand and is easy to grip throughout your tattooing session.

The Stregato is also fitted with NeoTat’s Magic Motor – the same used in its Vivace tattoo machines. The Magic Motor provides an even smoother movement of the Stregato’s drive bar.

Although best known for its rotaries, NeoTat has developed a cool new power switch called the MagicRay.

The NeoTat MagicRay Power Switch lets you turn your tattoo machines on and off in a unique way: instead of pressing down on it with your foot, the MagicRay is operated by a flick of your hand.

No, you’re not suddenly the next Harry Potter; an infrared sensor in the MagicRay will detect your hand movement.

Waving your hand over the top of the switch will turn the power on, while a second wave will turn it off again.

It’s also very hygienic: it can be barrier wrapped to keep it clean and it will still work as long as you wrap it tightly over the infrared sensor.

It is clear to see why tattoo artists love NeoTat machines – Ray puts his heart and soul into each one.

“We want every machine to be at peak performance and ready to work before it leaves the shop. It is our pride, our name going out in those boxes.”

You can definitely have pride in your NeoTat machines, Ray.

Inkjecta Flite Nano

Inkjecta Flite Nano rotaries are dedicated cartridge tattoo machines that are suitable for lining, shading and colouring across all styles.

With three versions of the Flite Nano available to order from Killer Ink Tattoo, it can be hard to know which is best for you.

In our latest video, we take a look at the three iterations of the Inkjecta Flite Nano (Lite, Titan and Elite) and go through the similarities and differences between the machines.

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Jenna Kerr

Known for her incredible ornamental tattoos, Jenna Kerr is one of the UK’s top tattoo artists and has been gaining more and more followers each year with her body art.

Since she began tattooing back in 2009, Jenna has worked at Devil in the Detail tattoo studio, based in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent, UK.

Although adept at various styles, Jenna Kerr is best known for her stunning ornamental work, incorporating crystals, gemstones, flowers and filigrees.

Jenna’s popularity grew to new heights last year with numerous art-focused social media pages featuring her work in their videos, gaining her many new fans in the process.

It would also appear that tattoo convention judges love her work too, with Jenna picking up many awards over the last year.

These include ‘Best Collaboration’ and ‘Best Ornamental’ with Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith at the 2017 Cezanne Tattoo Convention and ‘3rd Best of Show’ at the 2017 London Tattoo Convention for a mammoth collaboration that she did with Ryan and Jay Freestyle.

Speaking of collaborations, Jenna Kerr was one of six artists to take part in the first edition of the Kaos Theory Project at NR Studios in London, which was filmed by Killer Ink Tattoo. Fellow sponsored artists Ryan and Jay also took part in the week-long event.

To create her stunning ornamental pieces, Jenna uses a variety of Killer Ink Tattoo supplies, including Inkjecta machines, World Famous Ink, Dermalize PRO, and Stencil Forte.

Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment

A titan of the industry, Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment has consistently developed a range of high-quality devices for tattoo artists over the years.

The most famous of all Cheyenne tattoo equipment is the HAWK, the company’s first rotary machine.

The original Cheyenne HAWK was used and loved by many tattoo artists worldwide, and the company has now honoured its legacy with a special edition re-release to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

It’s hard to follow on from such an iconic machine, but the German-based company managed to do so just fine with the release of the Cheyenne HAWK Spirit.

The HAWK Spirit is a light and flexible machine that is great for any and all aspects of tattooing, delivering fast strokes and quick punctures. As an all-rounder, tattoo artists appreciated the machines ease of use.

Up next was the Cheyenne HAWK Thunder, another great all-rounder rotary that excelled at lining, shading and colouring work. Cheyenne increased the stroke length of the HAWK Thunder up to 4mm, making it a great tattoo machine for colour packing and solid black work.

So where do you go from making three great rotary tattoo machines? For Cheyenne, it was the pen-style machine.

Which brings us to the Cheyenne HAWK Pen, an innovative rotary tattoo machine that is shaped like a marker pen and vibrates less than conventional tattoo devices – without sacrificing puncturing power.

The release of the Cheyenne HAWK Pen was significant in the tattooing world, bringing artists’ attention to pen-style rotaries for the first time.

Even years after its release, the Cheyenne Pen is still a shining light in the pen-style rotary machine category, with many of the world’s best tattooists using the HAWK Pen today. You can see Killer Ink sponsored artists like Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith, Alvin Chong, and Samuel Sancho using the Cheyenne HAWK Pen to create their tattoos.

To go hand-in-hand with its tattoo machines, Cheyenne offers a range of fixed and disposable grips that are easy to attach and comfortable to use. The Cheyenne Flex Grip and Cheyenne Fixed Grip also allow artists to use Cheyenne cartridges with any tattoo machine.

Speaking of cartridges, Cheyenne’s wide selection of needle cartridges are some of the best on the market. This comes as no surprise considering that Cheyenne introduced and pioneered the cartridge system, which was revolutionary to the tattoo industry.

Each and every cartridge is made in Germany and quickly interchangeable, allowing artists to change between needle configurations in seconds.

Recently, Cheyenne launched its new Craft Cartridges, which have all the qualities you’d come to expect from the brand but with a simplified design – the plastic tips are made from a single mould of medical grade plastic.

That’s not all for Cheyenne, as the company also offers artists various foot switches, cables and PU power supplies – including the upcoming PU III power supply, which will feature a touch-less interface.

Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment may be one of the best brands in the industry, but don’t just take our word for it. Make sure to try out some of its top products, whether it be the HAWK Pen, PU power supply or its cartridges. You won’t be sorry!

Killer Ink Tattoo at Milano Tattoo Convention 2018

Killer Ink was back in Milan for another edition of the spectacular Milano Tattoo Convention!

We flew over to Italy at the beginning of February for the 2018 Milano Tattoo Convention, taking place again this year at Fiera Milano City.

The event featured some of the world’s best tattoo artists and jaw-dropping performers, so don’t miss this one!

History repeated itself as our sponsored artists Ryan ‘The Scientist’ Smith and Jay Freestyle won ‘Best of Show’ for the second year running. Ryan and Jay tattooed an incredible leg sleeve that wowed both the public and the judges.

Killer Ink sponsored artist Debora Cherrys picked up ‘Best of Friday’ and ‘2nd Best of Saturday’ for two colourful neo-traditional tattoos, while Sandra Daukshta’s owl portrait claimed ‘2nd Best of Friday’.

That wasn’t all for our sponsored artists as Spanish tattooer Fernando Bisceglia’s work was named ‘Best Colour’. Shout out to our good friend Benjamin Laukis too as he went home with ‘2nd Best of Show’ for his stunning piece.

Away from the awards, there were a couple of killer Pennywise portraits from our artists Silvano Fiato and Adem Senturk (who did his in a collaboration with Russian tattooist Mira Paramonova).

Diego Lanzone also had a convention to remember, finding himself tattooing a black cat onto Lacuna Coil singer Cristina Scabbia.

Our good friends over at Stigma-Rotary® joined us alongside our stand to demonstrate their new Hyper V4, Stylist and Spear machines, with the help of new school artist Uncl Paul Knows.

Well, that’s all for this year! Thanks again to everyone involved in the Milano Tattoo Convention and we can’t wait to get back next year!

Grazie mille!
