Octagon Direct Drive Rotary Machine

$420.00

WITH A PRECISION ENGINEERED DUAL BEARING MOTOR, AND A MACHINED ALL BILLET ALUMINUM HOUSING, THE OCTAGON DIRECT DRIVE ROTARY MACHINE IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE NOMI GRIP SYSTEM’S UNIQUELY INNOVATIVE FUNCTION. COMBINED WITH THE NOMI GRIP, Z-AXIS PIN, AND CUSTOMIZED NOMI NEEDLES, THE LATEST MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY INNOVATIVE  METHOD FOR THE DELIVERY OF PIGMENT INTO THE SKIN IS NOW AVAILABLE. THOUGH THE SPECIFIC ENGINEERING OF THIS MACHINE’S MOTOR MAKES IT AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE NOMI GRIP MASTER SYSTEM, THE MACHINE MAINTAINS A VERSATILITY THAT ALLOWS FOR VARIOUS APPLICATIONS AND DESIRED RESULTS.

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.
