Hey guys, its Liam from Killer Ink and today I’m going to be running through the machines offered by NeoTat.

There are three NeoTat machines that we’re going to be looking at today: the Original, the Vivace, and the Stregato, as well as a power switch called the MagicRay.

But first, a quick history lesson…

NeoTat was founded across the pond by an American named Ray Webb in 2004. Ray began building tattoo machine parts in the early ‘90s for a tattoo supply company and would go on to use the experience in his own machines.

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

Although the tattoo industry wasn’t quite ready for a linear tattoo machine of a rotary design, Ray managed to break through the barriers in 2009, thanks to a lot of graft and persistence.

Ray also received endorsements from popular artists like Joshua Carlton, who called him a “world class machine builder”.

Each and every rotary machine built by NeoTat is manufactured in the USA from the best materials around, before being hand-fitted, assembled and put through a rigorous testing process.

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

The NeoTat Original is a consistent, smooth-running rotary that is offered in four colours: Red, Green, Blue, and Black.

The Original is available with either an RCA or Clip Cord connection and three stroke lengths: short (1.8mm), medium (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, which is 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), and is available in two colours: Orange and Black.

The design of the Vivace is ergonomic and offers a low level of vibration, which helps to cut down on the fatigue associated with long 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 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 them the choice between a softer or harder hit.

As with all NeoTat machines, the Stregato has an ergonomically-shaped body that fits comfortable 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 machines. This motor provides an even smoother movement of the machine’s drive bar.

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

The MagicRay lets you turn your tattoo machines on and off in a unique way: instead of pressing down on it with your foot, the Magic Ray is operated with a wave of your hand, like this…

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.

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

Whether you’re looking at tattoo machines or the MagicRay power switch from NeoTat, we have them all in stock via the link in the description below.
