The story and legacy of Pulse Tattoo can now be celebrated with Pulse Gear. From inception to today, we have earned a reputation for excellence in tattoo machines, and now in water based tattoo pigments. About twenty years ago, germ of the business grew as the result of a simple conversation in a tattoo studio. Tim Brewer and Brett Bryan wanted to improve tattoo equipment. Trial and error led to success. Nights were spent building machines and days were spent in the studio tattooing with that equipment. Eventually they began to shape the machines and grow their base of knowledge. As the small company grew, we won over like-minded artists who respected reliable, high quality machines. In September 2017 Jay Kelly and Mark Roberts took over the reins of Pulse. The pair have nearly 50 years

Pulse Professional provides high quality tattoo machines and equipment for tattoo artists who want to use precision tools in their trade. Tim Brewer and Brett Bryan began a quest for improving tattoo equipment in 1998. Through many long nights and trial and error, they built their own machines.  By trial and error, they modified their new tattoo machines.  During the day they tested their innovations in the studio. As the small company grew, they kept finding more like-minded artists who were looking for reliable, high quality machines. The reputation for these machines grew and in 2000 Pulse Tattoo was formed. The next year it grew out of the basement and moved into a full time workshop and soon expanded its line of equipment. In September 2017 Jay Kelly and Mark Roberts took over th

Pulse started as a simple conversation in a tattoo studio. Tim Brewer and Brett Bryan kicked around ideas of how they thought tattoo equipment could be improved. They took their 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 they 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 they began to shape the machines and grow their base of knowledge.   As the small company grew, they kept finding more like-minded artists who were looking for reliable, high quality machines.

Darwin “Huck” Spaulding (1928-2013)

Right away when I heard the news that Huck Spaulding had passed away, I wanted to read the obituary to find out more information on this giant of the tattoo world. I have always had a fasination with Spaulding because he is built into the fabric of tattoo machine builders. I was rewarded with a fasicnating piece of info that has eluded me for my 20 years in the tattoo business. Huck Spaulding's name was Darwin, I had no idea. It is a great name, but I see how Huck and Paul chose to name their company Spaulding & Rogers, I guess Darwin & Franklin doesnt't have the same ring. Spaulding has been a controversial figure since he started ou

Time For A Logo Refresh

Along with our new website we wanted to refresh our logo. We have had the same gear logo for the last 13 years and we wanted to keep the same elements, but we wanted it to reflect our growth.We narrowed it down to a half dozen choices and the winner is above. It feels great to have a new logo, which will appear on some new T-shirts, stickers and hats very soon. Pulse 2.0 is here, all new logo, same great quality.

World Wide Tattoo Conference – BOSTON

We have just signed on to be the sponsor at this years World Wide Tattoo Conference in Boston. This event is new and has had great success in Chicago and Italy. It brings together six of the most forward thinking and talented tattoo artists working today. Over a 2 day workshop you get to participate in each of their seminars. It's nice because you don't have to pick and chose what seminar to go to, or worry about manning your booth on the convention floor. The event is on a Tuesday / Wednesday and is not open to the public, so it allows you to come out, relax and absorb all the information without the hassle of a convention going on. We think this is one of the best ideas to come around in a while. The event will a

Pulse attacked by cyber robots

Over the last couple days the Pulse site has been on and off. We're sorry for the inconvenience. It seems our host had migrated us to another server and we thought that was causing the problem. Turns out that we have been taking on waves of attacks from multiple botnets. Not us personally but our host. Seems a hacker will Trojan a botnet into tons of unwitting systems and then call them up and turn them into an army of dark minions to attack thousands of computers at the hands of a spammer who has paid the hacker. They can be very resistant to anti-mal software. The whole thing sounds pretty cool, but not when it interrupts our site, poi

The New Paul Rogers Book

The Father of American Tattooing by Franklin Paul Rogers is an all new volume based on the original book. The original book was published in 1990 by Don Lucas and Paul. They had worked together on the book and Don had done multiple interviews and taped many conversations with Paul about his life with the intention of publishing his story. While working on the book Paul had a stroke and was in a nursing home for about a year before he passed away. Don was able to finish the book and published a limited edition that sold out in the early 1990's. the new paul rogers book Paul's life in tattooing is the quintessential archetype for the story

Pulse Limited Editions

Back at the beginning of this year we sat down at Pulse and made of list of all the ideas we wanted to develop and experiment with. As we tested some of these ideas in-house we began to think that we should collect up the things that have worked out and do some special edition machines. The idea behind these specials is to learn some new things as we develop new processes and ideas for our machines. We can then integrate these things into our line of machines. At the top of my legal pad was the idea that I wanted to work with a firearms engraver. Someone who was outside of the tattoo world but a similar type of artisan / craftsman. We w

Great reference is only a few steps away.

One of the things I have learned over the years in tattooing is that really great tattoo artists almost never look at tattoo work for reference. They move two, three, four steps away and draw from great painters and sculpturs, cartoonists and photographers, architects and jewelry makers. The further you can move away from your original source material the more you can grow and the better you can become. The most original talents always refer to unique sources and put together a great style from the amalgamation of many places. A painter who personifies this idea is Greg "Craola" Simkins. If you have seen Greg's sketchbook Drawn From the Well, then you are well aware of how talented and creative Greg is. Greg doesn't tattoo, but has used tattooing as influence in his work, along with chi

The Great Customer Bar Has Been Raised

We love our loyal customers here at Pulse and over the years we have had done business with some really great folks. If you ever wondered how you could get yourself to the top of our Christmas card list take a cue from our new favorite customer, Nick Pinto. Nick decided to tattoo the side of his dome with a tattoo machine and made the great choice of our Watson machine. Nick is sending a clear message that he is "loyal to the coil" and is keeping it as real as can be with his new tattoo. Looks good Nick! Alright who is going to raise the bar next?

The Super Seven Sampler

As we were unloading needles a few weeks back Jessica had a great idea to pack up all the great 7's we carry as a Super Seven Sampler. This great collection of needles gives you 7 different styles of 7's. The sampler includes 7 liners, 7 mags, 7 curved mags, 7 round shader, 7 bugpin mag, 7 bugpin curved mag and 7 bugpin liners. You get a 5 strip of each needle for a grand total of 35 needles. The whole shooting match has been priced at $11. So as you can see that is a great deal, but you are going to want to jump on this deal because we only have so many sets. Once we run out of Super Seven Samplers that's it the deal is done.

New Pulse Heritage T-Shirt

Our New Pulse Heritage T-shirt is avalable now. The artwork is incredible and we came to learn about the artist through the magic of Instagram. Like most people, I like to eat my lunch with one hand while broswing the web for new artists and cool things to look at with the other. While browsing one day I came across this really amazing hand drawn logo for a playing card company. It was so intricate that I assumed it had been done a hundred years ago, there was no way it was done on a computer. Upon looking into the account @flatteryleadstoruin on Instagram, I found all this amazing artwork that was being created one line at a time by this awesome artist David Salinas. He was do
