What makes the Wand special? THE MAGIC IS IN THE MOTOR, 2 custom FAULHABER motors, to be exact.
Franco Vescovi - a tattoo artist & machine builder for over 25 years - had a goal: create the perfect rotary pen for each artist. For over 4 years, he experimented with countless prototypes & motors. Based on feedback from artists all over the world, and his knowledge & experience, Franco created 3 versions of the WAND: SHADER, PACKER, LINER.
Each version takes 1 of 2 custom FAULHABER motors - the right magical blend of torque, RPM, and nominal voltage - and precisely pairs it with the right stroke: 3.5, 4.2, or a crazy 5.0.
Either the SHADER or PACKER WAND will be your perfect all-in-one machine, depending on your style. You need just 1 of these.
The SHADER WAND is perfect for fine lines, smooth black & grey, realistic shading, and more. It’s your all-in-one machine if you’re solely a black & grey realistic artist. It has a softer motor precisely paired with a 3.5 stroke.
The PACKER WAND is perfect for fine or bold lines, realistic colour, traditional style, 3RL work, and more. It’s your all-in-one machine if you’re an artist that does such work. It has a powerful brushless motor precisely paired with a 4.2 stroke.
If you’re the artist that can do black & grey AND colour with 1 rotary machine, the PACKER WAND is perfect for you. It has enough power to do every style (including excellent line work), and is also capable of doing the smoothest black & grey.
Since the PACKER has more power than the SHADER and a 4.2 stroke, we suggest using it for soft, smooth black & grey only if you’re a 1 machine artist.
Many of you also expressed a desire for a specialized liner. We’ve got news…the LINER WAND is the first pen machine with a 5.0 stroke! Plus, it’s paired with our powerful brushless motor - a saturating beast! Be careful with the LINER. It hits so hard, we almost named it “Bruce Lee”!
