Building the lightest and fully adjustable rotary tattoo machine. Best weight to power ration in the world.

We all love the pushing power that comes from the coils of an oldschool tattoo machine and lets us push those wide magnums. But coils are heavy and they vibrate like crazy. On the other hand rotary tattoo machines are light and nimble in our hands and they are great for laying lines. But your typical rotary tattoo machine lacks the clearly defined hit of a coil machine and you can’t change the stroke unless you take the whole thing apart.The brushed motors in them are weak, heavy and outdated and they wear out fast. Both coil and rotary tattoo machines also have to have a spring of some kind to pull the needle back when not in use and that spring is slowing the needle down and takes away from the power and definition of the hit.

But there is a third way, a better way; the LACEnano brushless magnetic drive rotary tattoo machine.

It does away with springs altogether and makes the hit crisper and more adjustable than ever. It uses a brushless motor that just doesn’t wear out and packs loads of power while weighing next to nothing. It uses a classic armature bar but this time the armature bar is made from lightweight aircraft aluminium, so it doesn’t vibrate half as much.

This design also enables full hit and stroke adjustability, while for the first time enabling a complete separation of the RPM to hit relationship. For the first time there is a machine that can hit harder than a coil but weighs less than any rotary ever could.
