Milano Tattoo Convention 2020 Video

The Milano Tattoo Convention celebrated its 25th anniversary last month, so we were on-hand to capture the show in all of its tattoo-covered glory!

With hundreds of the world's best artists tattooing under one roof, the Milano Tattoo Convention is always one of the highlights of the year - and the 25th edition did not disappoint!

Make sure to click below to watch our latest video!

It was another great weekend for Killer Ink sponsored artists, with four of our tattooists taking home awards for their incredible work.

The first day of the convention saw Debora Cherrys take home ‘3rd Best of Friday’ for a killer neo-traditional tattoo, while Kindamo from Alex De Pase’s Or Noir Tattoo Gallery received ‘2nd Best of Friday’ for a dope black and grey leg piece.

Kindamo also picked up the award for ‘Best Large Black & Grey’ for another ridiculously clean tattoo, with Christos Galiropoulos then topping his category by claiming ‘Best Small Black & Grey’ with a healed portrait of The Rolling Stones’ guitarist, Keith Richards.

The finale of the convention then saw Jay Freestyle crowned ‘3rd Best of Show’ for an incredible BDSM-themed leg sleeve that combined colour realism with pixel art.

We also wanted to give a shout out to our good friend Benjamin Laukis who won ‘2nd Best Medium Colour’ for his sick skull and script piece!

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Amy Edwards

Amy Edwards is a UK-based tattooist that specialises in realistic portraits of celebrities, movie characters, and much more!

An artist with many strings to her bow, Amy started her career by dabbling in various art forms, including illustration, watercolour painting, gig flyers and posters, before ultimately focusing on tattooing.

Alongside being the kickass drummer of a local doom metal band, Amy honed her tattooing skills at a Kettering-based studio, where she particularly enjoyed new school, black and grey realism, and portraits.

A move to Birmingham meant putting down the sticks and picking up the needle cartridges as she took the next step in her tattooing journey by joining our sponsored studio, Dark Horse Collective.

Working alongside such artists as Rich Harris and Jamie Lee Knott proved invaluable for Amy, as she took her skills to a whole new level, with a particular focus on creating realistic colour portraits of your favourite TV and film characters, celebrities, and a horror monster or two.

After leaving Dark Horse Collective last year, Amy undertook various guest spots at studios around the UK, including Kamil Tattoos, Fat Fugu Collective, North of Winter, and Seven Foxes Tattoo before settling down for a residency at Rendition Tattoo Studio in Nuneaton.

To create her colour realism pieces, Amy uses various supplies from Killer Ink, including a Spektra Xion tattoo machine from FK Irons, KWADRON Cartridges, and Stencil Stuff.

ECOTAT - Plant-Based, Eco-Friendly Products

ECOTAT is a provider of plant-based alternatives to conventional single-use plastic products 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 range of ECOTAT products we stock includes barrier grip sleeves, machine covers, clip cord sleeves, surface protection sheets, and more!

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

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

If you want to try out ECOTAT’s plant-based, eco-friendly products for yourself, you can get your hands on a sample pack of sample protection covers. These covers are thinner and lighter than their plastic counterparts, yet just as durable.

Stigma-Rotary® - New Tattoo Machine, Grips & Wireless System

Stigma-Rotary® rounded off a great 2019 with the introduction of its latest tattoo machine, the Shot, as well as various click and disposable grips. The company is set to take things up another level in 2020 with the introduction of a brand new wireless system.

But first, let’s have a look at what was released towards the latter half of last year, starting with the brand’s most recent rotary tattoo machine.

The Stigma-Rotary® Shot is the only direct drive tattoo machine with a stroke length that is quick and easy to adjust without the need to exchange parts or use tools.

By simply twisting the motor of the Stigma® Shot, you can adjust its stroke length from 3.0 mm to 4.0 mm in no time at all.

The Stigma® Shot is also the only direct drive machine with forced stay-up function for standard tattoo needles and cartridges, which means that the needles always stop at the upper position. This function makes the Shot the safest direct drive rotary available.

As well as featuring a protected, gold-plated RCA connection, the Stigma-Rotary® Shot is powered by a high-quality 6 Watt coreless motor with a 2 mm shaft and two preloaded ball bearings.

Thanks to its universal screw-on connection, you can use the Stigma-Rotary® Shot with cartridge grips from all major brands, as well as grips with a backstem for standard tattoo needles.

Speaking of grips, Stigma-Rotary® was busy in 2019 with the development and release of not one, but two types of grips: the Comfy Click Grip and disposable click grips.

The Stigma-Rotary® Comfy click grip has been ergonomically-designed for optimum comfort. The Comfy grip has a 32 mm diameter at its widest point and features horizontal and vertical grooves to eliminate slipping.

The shape of the Stigma® Comfy grip also allows you to get closer to the cartridge to achieve precision while tattooing.

Thanks to its click system, you can adjust the needle depth by simply twisting the grip. The click system also prevents involuntary turning, even when using heavy tattoo machines.

The Stigma® Comfy grip comes with interchangeable cartridge receivers, allowing it to be used with both Stigma-Rotary® cartridges and cartridges from all major brands. Both cartridge receivers are included.

Two versions of the Stigma-Rotary® Comfy click grip are available to order from Killer Ink Tattoo: one with a screw-on vice connection and another featuring a backstem that is cross-ribbed for better grab.

Stigma-Rotary® followed up the success of the Comfy click grip with the release of its disposable click grips, which have been designed for use with Stigma® advanced needle cartridges.

As with the Comfy click grip, the disposable grips have been ergonomically-designed by Stigma® for optimum comfort and feature horizontal and vertical grooves to eliminate slipping.

Available in a box of 12 units, the Stigma® Disposable Click Grips are available with either a screw-on vice connection or a backstem connection (with its own needle plunger bar).

So what will be coming in 2020? Well Stigma-Rotary® has started whetting our appetites early with teaser images of its new Pilot Wireless System.

Although Stigma® hasn’t released much information about the Pilot Wireless System, we do know that it consists of a power supply, foot pedal and battery pack – all of which operate wirelessly.

The battery pack element fits on all Stigma® tattoo machines, as well as most machines that feature an RCA connection. It simply clicks into the RCA connector, allowing you to power your machine without the need for cables. You can also adjust the voltage and turn your machine on/off directly on the battery!

We’ll have more information about the new Stigma-Rotary® Pilot Wireless System soon, so make sure to keep checking out our website and social media channels for updates!
