Testimonials

Travis Greenough

"I’ve been doing Black & Grey illustrative realism and dark surrealism tattoos for 10 years now and find that I'm very specific about how I want my machines to run. For the last 1.5 years I have been using Symbeos machines exclusively. I use them because they are easy to set up the way you like them, and once they're set up they're super consistent and don't require tuning. I really appreciate that I can tune them like I would a coil machine. I’ve used other rotaries in the past that gave me no ability to change the way the machine runs and it hampered what I wanted to do with my tattooing. For me, Symbeos is the most versatile rotary on the market!"

"From the beginning of my career, I was trained to use coil machines. Because I am a creature of habit and not big on change, I have never been able to find anything comparable. I was always hesitant to completely switch my setup over to rotaries. I have tinkered with many different brands of rotary tattoo machines and it seems that no one was producing anything that was fully customizable for me.

I was lucky enough to try out the Symbeos rotary when it first hit the market and knowing that Eikon only backs quality products, I was very optimistic. Partnered with HM Tools & Dye, Eikon has managed to create a rotary machine that functions flawlessly for every aspect of tattooing from delicate linework to heavy color packing. Having basically every part interchangeable allows me to build a machine specific to my needs as an individual. The Symbeos has the fundamentals of a coil machine with the low maintenance and quiet hum of a rotary.

I now use the Symbeos Rotary exclusively. Having such a versatile machine at my fingertips makes for an easy setup and I know that I will always have what I need on hand to create a timeless tattoo."

"The biggest difference I find with Symbeos versus other rotaries, is that it’s like a ship smoothly cutting through the waves in the water – it’s a smoother tattooing process. The others just plow through the skin. It’s like you’re rushing through the skin with other rotaries. With Symbeos, I’m much more in control, much more together. It’s much more natural, like the coils I used to use that were customized for me. With Symbeos the line comes out perfect. The other rotaries will never give me that. Symbeos fuckin’ rocks."

Symbeos Rotary Machines

Eikon teamed up with HM Tools & Dye to develop the first ever rotary machine with the adaptability of a coil machine. Symbeos is versatile, lightweight and quiet.

Symbeos is the only truly tunable rotary machine out there, with an available range of slides to control your hit. If you want to change stroke length or the speed of your motor, we have all of the parts you need to fine tune the machine to the way you want to tattoo. No more settling for the way the machine was shipped to you. These changes take minutes - not hours, and if you don’t like the change it’s easy to go back to the way it was. We even include the tools you need - right inside the box.

You have come to trust Eikon’s high quality standards and attention to detail - once you put a Symbeos in your hand you’ll know we haven’t let you down. From the precision Swiss Maxon motors right down to precision machining by HM - we’ve thought of every detail.
