Just building the lightest rotary tattoo machine :)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

My name is Rok and i'm a tattoo machine designer.

For the last few months we have been developing the lightest tattoo machine called LACEnano, that has lowest vibration and is fully autoclavable.

Any question opinion is welcome.

Hello everyone.

1. Thank you Scott for asking - I love tattoos but i don't make them.

We were called from a few of our local tattoo artists that told us what problems they have with there current tattoo machines (like adjusting stoke and power, cleaning and weight). So we decided to help them and try to make one with all that featured involved to optimize their problems - so we designed and build LACEnano.

2. Thank you Matt, we tried to make it functional, looking good and clean at the same time. Currently we have one and are still testing it with our local tattoo artists (that ask us to build it) and testing it that everything feals and works just right for them.

Pretty lame' date=' if you ask me. Lots of great artists use rotaries these days. Then again, I'm not an artist, so I have no dog in this fight.[/quote']

Ya me either, this thread caught my eye because I has seen that meme.. I did ask him about the new machines once and his thought was folks should master the old machines before trying to learn the new ones, he's a traditional style artist with clearl traditional traditions and method and I dig it personally..

It's not like rotaries are heavy to begin with and already have next to no vibration. I don't see what's so different on this? What's the issue this artist is having with power? Rotaries can run on next to nothing.

I might also add that the purpose of this forum is to talk about good tattooing by both tattooers and 'collectors' alike. A despised term but effective. It's kind of in poor taste to join simply to push your next product, it's not a good look. The best way to start your account is to post in the introduction thread first and include images, tattoos, tattooers that inspire you, tattoos you have of your own, or tattoos that you've done.

It looks like John Clark's system to me. I wonder how he feels about this machine. Did you ask him about how he feels about this machine?

Also have you built any or do you just assume it will be the lightest with no vibration? Also where do the rubberbands go?

Yeah I don't see anything to adjust tension; rubber bands, wheel or otherwise. In fact there's so little bar exposed that all you can do is put them all the way in the back seat thus being rather ineffective.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
