EGO Rotary

EGO Rotary tattoo machines are super-lightweight models with wrist-friendly designs. The original idea from UK tattoo artist Bez was to create a machine that could be held like a pen, offering perfect balance and needle control.

The most recent offering from Bez and EGO Rotary is the EGO Switch pen-style tattoo machine, the world’s first to feature an in-built ON/OFF switch and now available with adjustable give!

The EGO Switch V2 is a cartridge-dedicated rotary tattoo machine that is lightweight, reliable, consistent and quiet.  It features an exceptional ergonomic design, with a 28 mm diameter that fits into your hand well and feels great when tattooing.

EGO Rotary’s Switch V2 has two operating modes. Mode one is constant power on, meaning that tattoo artists control the power of the machine via their power supply with a foot switch. Mode two is Switch mode, which allows artists to turn the power on and off via the switch at the top of the rotary. One press engages the power, and it will stay on until the switch is pressed again.

The perfect accompaniment to the Switch V2 is the EGO Micro-Lite RCA cord, which is available in straight and right-angle configurations.

The EGO Micro-Lite RCA cables weigh just 20 grams, making them the lightest cords available. With a diameter of 2 mm, the cords are very thin and more flexible than other RCA cords.

The gold-plated jack and RCA plug ensure a clean connection between your tattoo machine and power supply.

Bez's popular EGO V2 Plus is also available in three of the latest eye-catching Crystal colours!

The EGO V2 Plus is a super-lightweight rotary tattoo machine with a wrist-friendly design. With all of the weight shifted to create a more pen-like feeling and eliminate wrist pain, the EGO V2 Plus is perfectly balanced for maximum needle control and balance.

Features EGO's patented 'Power Triangle' system, which efficiently replicates the front and back spring system from coil machines.

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Silvano Fiato

Italian artist Silvano Fiato is a world-renowned tattooist that is revered for jaw-dropping black and grey and colour realism.

As with many tattoo artists today, Silvano began his artistic journey at an early age and could always be found with a paper and pencil in hand.

After buying his first tattoo magazine at 18 and taking inspiration from the realistic work of Robert Hernandez, Silvano made the decision to pursue a career in body art.

Fast forward to the present day and Silvano Fiato is now a household name in tattooing, with his hyper-realism work taking plaudits from artists and non-artists alike over the years, as well as multiple awards from conventions around Europe.

Since 2006, Silvano has been the owner of Eternal Tattoo Studio in his home town of Genoa, Italy, which was among the first shops in the world to use graphic design to show customers a preview of how their tattoo will look on the skin. He has also recently opened up a second shop in Italy’s capital city of Rome.

Perhaps one of Silvano’s finest achievements to-date was being recognised as a ‘Contemporary Artist’ by the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, also known as MACRO, and having his work featured in the museum’s catalogue.

To create his incredible realistic black and grey and colour tattoos, Silvano uses various supplies from Killer Ink Tattoo, including World Famous Tattoo Ink, Flux and Xion machines from Spektra Rotary, and KWADRON Cartridges.

Keep up to date with Silvano Fiato’s latest tattoos, seminars, guest spots, conventions, and more by following him on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

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.
