Introducing Hyperdrive
Revolutionizing Tattoo Machines with Advanced Motor Profiles

At Stigma Rotary®, we're thrilled to introduce Hyperdrive, the cutting-edge software that powers Chroma, our latest and most advanced tattoo pen. Designed specifically with tattooing in mind, Hyperdrive offers unprecedented accuracy, responsiveness, and customization, setting a new standard in the industry.

The Evolution of Brushless Motors in Tattooing

Brushless motors are essential in modern tattoo machines, requiring sophisticated electronics and software to control their speed, strength, and timing. Hyperdrive, developed entirely in-house, goes beyond the basics, providing a robust platform that's built for the unique demands of tattooing.

One of the standout features of Hyperdrive is its ability to support different motor profiles, a game-changer for tattoo artists.

A Journey from Rotary Machines to Hyperdrive

In the early days of rotary tattoo machines, we created machine bodies compatible with various motor plugs. This allowed artists to switch motors to achieve different effects, such as using a 10w motor for lining and a 6w motor for shading.

With Hyperdrive, we've taken this concept to the next level. Now, artists can customize motor performance directly within the device, with just a few simple steps.

How to Customize Your Motor Profile

While the motor is running, you can long press the middle button to activate the Hyperdrive menu. The Hyperdrive icon will start blinking, allowing you to select a motor profile by pressing the up or down buttons. Here are the profiles available:

  • Steady: This profile maintains a constant motor speed regardless of pressure or needle size, providing powerful and consistent performance.
  • 0 (Default): A versatile and responsive profile suitable for all-around work. It balances power and softness effectively.
  • -1 to -3: These profiles gradually reduce the motor's strength and softness, with -3 being the weakest. They're perfect for shading, black and grey work, and realistic tattoos.
  • Boost: This profile makes the motor reactive and stronger, increasing speed and power when the needles are pushed further. It's ideal for cover-ups, blackwork, and color packing.
Chroma: The Ultimate Customizable Tattoo Pen

Chroma is the first rotary pen that allows artists to configure it precisely to their needs. Combined with adjustable stroke length, Chroma offers an all-in-one solution that adapts to any tattooing style.
