THIS CNC MACHINED SINGLE PIECE TUBE-GRIP IS METICULOUSLY DEIGNED TO HOUSE A UNIQUE CYLINDRICAL Z-AXIS PIN.  FOR THE SOLE PUPOSE OF CHANGING WHAT IS UNDERSTOOD TO BE THE STANDARD OR CORRECT MOTION OF THE NEEDLE BAR, AND THEN ALTERING THE  DIRECTION OF THE NEEDLE BARS MOVEMENT TO ACHIEVE AN ENHANCED RESULT. THE PATENT PENDING DESIGN OF THIS GRIP AND ALL OF ITS INTERACTING PARTS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE SHOULD BE A WELCOME INNOVATIVE CHANGE TO AN UNEXPLORED SIDE OF MECHANICALLY IMPREGNATING THE SKIN WITH INK.

MACHINED OUT OF HIGH QUALITY ALUMINUM AND TREATED WITH A PROPRIETARY HARD COAT ANODIZING PROCESS,  THIS GRIP WILL WITHSTAND ALL MEDICAL INDUSTRY STANDARD AUTOCLAVE PROCEDURES.

THE NOMI GRIP, AND NOMI NEEDLES CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY,  AND WILL FUNCTION WITHIN ITS INTENDED USE WITH MOST DIRECT DRIVE ROTARY MACHINES WITH AN OFF-SET CAM.

Description

FOR THE PAST THIRTY YEARS I HAVE BEEN TRAVELING THE WORLD TATTOOING AND RESEARCHING THE TRADE. AS A VETERAN TATTOOER AND ENTHUSIASTIC TATTOO MACHINE BUILDER, MY NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE TATTOOING PROCESS EVENTUALLY LED ME TO THE PRACTICE OF TEBORI, A HAND METHOD OF TATTOOING PRACTICED BY THE JAPANESE. IT DID NOT TAKE LONG FOR THE INFLUENTIAL INSIGHT OF THIS METHOD, THE TOOLS USED, AND HAND TECHNIQUES BEING APPLIED FOR ME TO PURSUE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROGRESSIVE MECHANIZED VERSION OF THIS LONG ADMIRED METHOD OF TATTOOING. IT IS WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR ALL THE MASTERS AND DEVOTED PURISTS OUT THERE THAT STILL PRACTICE THIS METHOD, THAT I HUMBLY VIEW THE CREATION OF THE NOMI GRIP MASTER SYSTEM NOT AS A REPLACEMENT NOR A SHORT CUT, BUT AS AN HOMAGE TO THE THOUSANDS OF YEARS AND TATTOOERS PRECEDING ME AND THESE TOOLS. SO, AS AN UNDYING NEED TO APPLY MY KNOWLEDGE TECHNICALLY AND MECHANICALLY TO MY TRADE, I CREATED TEKORI SYSTEMS.

THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME TEKORI IS DERIVED FROM THE JAPANESE WORD TEBORI, WHICH IS THE HAND METHOD OF TATTOOING. THIS METHOD HAS NUMEROUS TECHNIQUES INVOLVED, ONE OF WHICH IS CALLED HANEBORI. THE HANEBORI TECHNIQUE IS PERFORMED BY REPEATING A DOWNWARD PUNCTURING MOTION, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY AN UPWARD LIFTING OF THE NEEDLES WHILE STILL IN THE SKIN, THEN RETREATING WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY IMPREGNATING THE SKIN WITH PIGMENT.  BY INTRODUCING MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY TO THIS METHOD THE NAME TEKORI, TEK (TECHNOLOGY) HORI (ENGRAVER), WAS BORN.
THE HANEBORI TECHNIQUE IS THE INSPIRATION FOR THE CREATION OF THE NOMI GRIP MASTER SYSTEM. THIS TOOL THAT I CREATED MECHANIZES THIS HAND TECHNIQUE TO BE PERFORMED BY MECHANICAL DEVICE RATHER THAN BY HAND. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT EFFECT THIS TOOL HAS IS ITS ABILITY TO APPLY RAW PIGMENT THAT HAS MAINTAINED ITS NATURAL PARTICLE SIZE WITH MINIMAL TRAUMA TO THE SKIN.

WHILE THERE ARE OTHER TATTOO INDUSTRY PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET THAT LOOK SIMILAR AND ARE DERIVATIVE IN THEIR CONCEPT OF A SYSTEM, NONE OF THE OTHER SYSTEMS OUT THERE TODAY REPLICATE THE PATENT PENDING FUNCTION OF THE NOMI GRIP TATTOO SYSTEM, NOR CAN THEY ACHIEVE DELIVERY OF AN EQUAL AMOUNT OF RAW PIGMENT SATURATION WITHIN THE SKIN.
