About Us

Pulse started as a simple conversation in a tattoo studio. Tim Brewer and Brett Bryan kicked around ideas of how we thought tattoo equipment could be improved. We took our ideas and began the process of learning what worked and what didn’t. It spawned many more questions about the things that didn’t work and why.

In 1998 we set up shop in a basement and got to work. Nights were spent building machines, days were spent in the studio tattooing with that equipment. Through trial and error we began to shape our machines and grow our base of knowledge.

As our small company grew, we kept finding more like-minded artists who were looking for reliable, high quality machines, and parts for the machines they were building. Our reputation for these machines grew and in 2000 we formed Pulse International. The next year we grew out of the basement and moved into a full time workshop and soon expanded our line of equipment.

We have built Pulse for the artist who wants to work with the best machines, equipment and components available. Our philosophy is unchanged since that first conversation. “To produce quality machines and components, that deliver every time you tattoo”.

In 2010 we celebrated our 10 years anniversary. We are very proud of what we have achieved and we care about what we make. One hundred percent of our machines are made here in the United States, from the steel to the packaging. We strive to create tattoo equipment that will perform reliably so you can focus on the art.

We are thankful to those who have believed in us and have supported our ideas. Everyone here at Pulse loves what we do and are focused on creating and carrying the best products we can.

We’ve spent years developing our products, we hope you enjoy years of using them
