This is our new “Shift” Grip, and is a multi-function grip designed to act as both a ergonomic concave design for precise control as well as a dual-position grip to allow for use of the top of the grip, further from the needles, as well as the bottom of the grip, the traditional position.
For a looser style of tattooing (for example when doing loose shading and textures, etc.), hold your grip with the top row of traction grooves, away from the needles and similar to the way you would hold a paintbrush. For a more technical, controlled style (for example when lining), hold your grip with the bottom row of traction grooves, near the needles, the way tattoo machines are traditionally held. The concave section of this grip is designed to, alternatively, be a thumb and index finger grip to add a level of comfort and control for those who prefer this type of ergonomics.

Carson Hill of Neuma Device has developed his fourth-generation tattoo machine, Neuma 4, after a few years of research with a particular interest in creating a ‘pen-style’ rotary tattoo machine that would place a strong emphasis on addressing the inherent limitations of traditional rotary mechanisms. The result is a multi-cam rotary mechanism that can line as quickly and effectively as a coil machine; plus shade, blend, and pack color efficiently, predictably, and reliably.
Artists’ first impressions are very positive, and feel they are outstanding liners as well as very efficient with all styles of tattooing. After a bit of experimentation with the various cams Neuma offers, artists quickly realize the high degree of utility the system offers and grow to love them even more for their versatility.
There are a number of Neuma 4 configurations that can appeal to artists of all types with all sorts of preferences. From grip size to weight, varying strike force and stroke length, there is certainly a configuration for anyone who uses Neuma 4 to suit any preference. Let your Neuma 4 conform to your personal preferences, rather than having to conform your tattooing style and approach to the performance of your machine.
