The End of Tattooing as we know it.

The End of tattooing as we know it.

These are Modern looking machines, beautiful design, every details is thought about, this is 2014 with a needle retainer, because I believe in Now and in the future, the past is gone and I cannot get back to it.

The end of tattooing as we know it:

You cannot run a “tattoo shop” like in the 70’s because times have changed, technology has changed all the world, tattooing was once underground & only practiced by the initiated, is not anymore, the media the TV shows the Internet as you read this, has changed it all, and this is beyond our control.
Tattoos shops are opening everywhere, and tattoo artists can get information for free in the internet because we are living in the age of the information, we are overloaded with information, and with some practice and a limited amount of time some people can get very very good at tattooing.
New styles of tattooing are born, incorporating many sorts of media, Photoshop, graphic design, realistic drawing, mix media, you name it and that is only the starting of tattooing because much more will appear in the near future.
There are no rules, old rules are buried and new rules are born everyday, we are moving in perpetual movement and fast evolution like a speeding bullet train, like a roller coaster taking us into the future faster than ever and forever, it is not anarchy it is technology & modern times, old things vanish while new ones appear as your ride changes outside view, while it glides you like a neon ray, and you find you don’t have to search for words, for there’s nothing to be said.

Delphine Noiztoy ” French Bird “

Interview about the shotgun.

First of all it’s been requested that I introduce myself.

My name is Delphine noiztoy, 24, from the south of France, I’m working as resident tattoo artist in Divine Canvas, London, UK.


Paulo Cruzes Rotary Tattoo Machine




Usually my work is really refined micro-dots, mainly Art nouveau and realism.. but i really enjoy heavy black work too, maybe due to my french roots and the particularly strong influence of the french tattoo community new style so called “graphik”, i don’t know, or maybe it’s cause I’m surrounded by body piercers that want full black sleeves and body suit! ahaha

Talking about Black sleeve, the other day one of my friend, Paul Morris (founder of Glory holes body- jewellery) asked me to work on his arms, full heavy black, no fucking about! and simultaneously, Paulo came to the shop, all glorious and noisy about his new creation… and that’s the moment where the “Shotgun” appeared in our hands!

At the start we were all dubitative i think, really odd looking rotary machine! “2 motors?! WTF?!”, was the exact words of most of the people present..

Paulo kept mumbling and stammering of excitement about all the goodness of the hybrid monster; so i took his words and asked for trying it out (before anybody else! ahahaha Xed and Matt… that was for Agincourt!)

The first impression, in hands, still fairly light like most of rotaries but with a bit more of consistency, really comfy to hold and move.. i felt straight away something with that machine, like if we were gonna be real friends!

Then i turn the power on and pressed the pedal.. ooooohhhh f***ing lovely thing Mr Cruzes had put between my fingers! he told me to run it quite fast but opted for a low 5.5V and with an extremely light and aerial movement started to ink my dear mad friend with that good ol’ 23 curved mag!

The ink went straight in, without effort or brutality, a black blacker than the night! in about an hour the underarm, shoulder and edge of the armpit were done; swelling was minimal, bleeding as well and the boy was real glad!

I ordered one of those gem straight away to Paulo!!

the day after i received a text from Paul which said exactly : “That machine is a Fucking god send. my arm isn’t as swollen as a coil machine. And i haven’t taken any painkillers and its fine, no need to take them. just a tad tender when i lift my arm up. and my armpit is perfect, no pain or discomfort.. its fucking awesome! thank you so much in so happy. xxx”

He came down Divine about a week later and this black… OH MY DAYS! just perfect! nearly done peeling off, and looking fab!

So if I’ve got to give my humble point of view on the shotgun… i would say, to use with precaution, the baby is gentle but can be a redoubtable monster, for the people that know what they’re doing and definitely not to put in the wrong hands.. a bit like a pit bull.. it can be an amazing softy until it find the wrong owner!
