A big thank you is due everyone who has added to the pool of knowledge. I would personally like to thank Shane Enholm for explaining the ins-and-outs of tattoo machines to me, as well as, Eddy Svetich , Jim Hawk , and Nick Wasko for their input. I would additionally like to thank Nick Wasko for proofing this write-up. Digging for information and connecting the dots was a painstaking endeavor. Their feedback helped immensely in formulating ideas and tying the pieces together. Early tattoo machine history is a shaky research subject likely to forever elude definitive documentation. Please bear in mind, this piece is not meant to be conclusive or all-encompassing.

All the evidence suggests that it was a major part of the solution.
Thomas A. Edison, assignee. Thomas Edison paid special attention to the cam mechanism on his rotary pen. The cam was enclosed in a nook at the top of the needle-bar, where the needle bar met the rotating shaft axis.
The rotating shaft axis was positioned through the direct center of the cam and the flywheel. As the fly wheel revolved, and turned the rotating shaft, the cam turned with it, causing the needle-bar follower to move up and down. Perhaps, after some experimentation, Edison determined this particular cam shape best-produced the rapid movement required of his stencil pen. Note: The terms eccentric and cam are often used interchangeably.
It also appears to be of larger proportion. Besides, all evidence indicates that altering the cam was a feasible adaptation; one that also accounts for the existence of straight-handled Edison pen-tattoo machines.
Were additional modifications required? And which came first? Who can say. One thing is certain progression in technology requires ongoing trials —constant tinkering, testing, and sharing of knowledge.
Patents are just one facet of the process. At the same time, there must have been numerous un-patented inventions.
It looks similar to other perforator pens of the era, a good example being the pattern making device patented by British sewing machine manufacturers Wilson, Hansen, and Treinan UK December 7, This device had a wind up mechanism akin to a clock and is said to have been modified for tattooing.
Family lore also says he was the inventor of the modern day electric tattoo machine. Ultimately, they had a falling out. According to documents of the U.
As an aside, Getchell called upon patent expert Octavius Knight to testify in the case. Court documents do not specify whether Knight ever took the stand, but about the time he was expected to appear, the case was dropped. Unfortunately, neither is illustrated in any detail. Elmer Getchell Tattooing. New York Tribune. Oct 26, Elmer Getchell tattooing Otto Schmidt c.
Collection of Tattoo Archive Evidently, Getchell had been using this type of machine for some time. Perhaps even earlier. More specifically, the type with the armature lined up with the coils. Vibrating bell mechanisms were quite powerful, ingeniously streamlined constructions used in various types of alarms, annunciators, indicators, and doorbells from the mids on.
Whether it was actually Getchell or someone else, who once again, made the intuitive leap of transforming a stand alone electromagnetic mechanism into a handheld device, the bell tattoo machine had irrefutably taken hold by the turn of the century.
A number of period photos have turned up depicting quite modern looking machines. Boston tattooer Otto Mason. New England Home Magazine. Nov 18, Interestingly, the catalogs marketed certain types of bells particularly doorbells as outfits, due to lack of electrical wiring in most homes and buildings. They consisted of a battery, wiring, and either a nickel or wood box encasing. In England, on March 24, , Alfred South of England actually received a patent for a tattoo machine based on a doorbell mechanism UK 13, However tinkering tattoo artists were introduced to bells, the discovery led the way to a whole new world of innovation.
With so much variety in bells and the versatility of their movable parts, tattoo artists could experiment with countless inventive combinations, all set to operate on an excpetionally reliable mechanism. Bell mechanisms were typically mounted on a wood or metal base, so they could be hung on a wall. Not all, but some, were also fitted in a frame that was intended to keep working parts properly aligned despite the constant jarring of the bell.
With minor modification a bell mechanism, especially those with a frame, could be removed from the wood or metal base and converted into a tattoo machine; i. Later, as tattoo machines evolved, frames were cast from customized intact molds, then assembled by adding the adjustable parts; i. Electrical Anunciator.

Karlavagn had retired from tattooing by the end of Photo courtesy of Kelly Collection. Machines with right-side uprights are referred to as right-handed machines. It has nothing to do with whether the tattoo artist is left-handed or right-handed. Right-handed machines, which eventually won out over left-handed machines, are thought to have come along around or after the s.
However, as evidenced by the Getchell photo, right-handed tattoo machines were made at a significantly early date. October 13, at 8: October 13, at 9: January 28, at 5: October 18, at 9: October 19, at 7: October 20, at 4: January 14, at You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
