S8 Tattoo Systems bridges art and technology together to reinvent tattoo stenciling. All materials used to develop the S8 Red Series were carefully selected and applied, resulting in three innovative stencil transfer products developed to work perfectly together and aimed to benefit both the tattoo artist and client. These products are vegan-friendly and safe for use on all skin types.
The RED Tattoo Stencil Transfer System features the first ever red-colored transfer paper designed for freehand stencil transfers. This new red wax-colorant blend is compatible with all thermal machines and renders highly visible, long lasting transfers. A single unit is 8.5” by 11” and consists of a backing paper with the red wax-colorant blend, a semi-transparent white transfer sheet, and an interleaving brown tissue sheet.
The RED Stencil Transfer Gel is a unique stencil product that contains a natural surfactant that cleans and removes oils from the skin. This preps the skin to effectively bond to the stencil and works as a transfer medium. It is a specially developed formula that does not contain any oils or long-chain hydrocarbons so that the longevity of the stencil is not compromised.
Once the stencil has been transferred onto skin, the RED Tattooing Gel is used to seal and protect it from wiping. Use during the tattooing process in place of other tattoo glides and ointments for improved needle performance, color penetration, and longevity for the artist, as well as reduced friction, irritation, and inflammation for the client. This innovative gel requires fewer applications than petrolatum and a lower drag coefficient, allowing faster, improved ink saturation with less tissue trauma.
Each kit comes with 25 full sets – 25 units of RED Tattoo Stencil Transfer Paper, 25 packets of RED Stencil Transfer Gel, and 25 packets of RED Tattooing Gel. Kits are packaged in a limited edition box featuring the work of an emerging tattoo artist, established tattooer, or tattoo legend. This Limited Edition RED Tattoo Stencil Transfer System features the work of tattoo artist Russ Abbott.
