Product Description

This is the whole kit. Everything you need to get started except for a pedal;

The famous LACEnano magnetic drive brushless tattoo machine, the power supply, wall wart with international plugs, and power cable.

And as a bonus it’s all packed in a sturdy aluminium flight case so you can throw it in your air luggage when you go to conventions without worries of anything getting damaged.

LACEnano rotary tattoo machine- Technical information

  • 40W long-life proprietary brushless motor
  • Magnetic drive
  • Infinitely adjustable stroke from 0 to 6mm without tools
  • Infinitely adjustable give (softness) without tools
  • Weight: 46g (Including the motor)
  • Machined from a solid block of aircraft aluminum
  • High quality Neutrik (R) connectors
  • Fully autoclavable (Including the motor)
  • Innovative tube clamping system
  • The LACEnano tattoo machine is a rotary machine because it is driven by an electric motor (a brushless one). But it feels much more like a coil machine because the drive system is magnetic like with a coil machine and so it has the same kind of give that a coil machine has. As you know coil machines don’t work very well with cartridge needles because the simulated give mechanism in a cartridge (the rubber or metal spring inside) works against the natural magnetic give of the machine. It is the same with the LACEnano and so we only recommend using classic needles with it, no cartridges!

The LACEnano Rotary Tattoo Machine and Power Supply come with a 1 year limited warranty.

This warranty excludes the motor (the motor is designed to work perfectly for 10 years, but if you take it to the beach and drop it in the sand or bake it in an oven at 300°C it will die, this is why we are excluding it from the warranty – yes, people actually do things like that).

But more importantly it also comes with a no nonsense Lifetime care package. We will repair and replace any parts of the machine. We will do this BELOW COST; not with a big profit margin like others, not at cost, but below cost, that is how much we believe in the quality of our product.
And you don’t even have to be the original buyer or have the original receipt (like other companies demand of you); all you need to do is send us the machine in the original flight case (to protect it in shipping) with the Certificate of authenticity that came with it.


The LACEnano was designed with the no maintenance philosophy in mind. It does not need to be taken apart, lubricated or anything. If you wish you can put a drop of light machine oil on the bearings, but it is not necessary. It is designed to be cleaned in a medical autoclave at up to 135°C; this will not do it any harm. You can also use standard disinfectants and cleaners in spray or wipe off form, that you use for your other tattoo machines.
The important difference to other tattoo machines is that the whole machine including the motor can be cleaned in this way.

Assembly and operation

In this video you can see, just how easy it is to set up our machine. The stroke and hit adjustments really do take just seconds.

The speed adjustment is also really simple, as there is only one knob on the power supply and it adjusts RPM directly. No more guesswork with voltages, amps etc.

Easy, simple, clean and powerful; the LACEnano.

    I recently purchased a LaceNano after saving my pennies for quite a while and can honestly say that it was well worth the wait. It is an amazing machine that performs better than anything I have ever used. From lining and shading to colour packing this machine handles it all with ease. It is super light and just feels precise and quality in the hand. I would highly recommend the LaceNano and have started saving hard for a second machine.

    My supplier in South Africa does a once a year studio visit where he visits all the studios he supplies, and on the last visit he brought the Lace Nano along to promote it. Everything about it caught my attention. I am a 7 year experienced artist owning and working at The Tattoo Lounge Cape Town and have tried various machines right down to cartridge machines. For the first 2 weeks I struggled to get used to the Lace Nano, but now, after working with it for about 6 months, I would hands down recommend it to anyone interested. Incredibly versatile and powerful, perfecting my soft black and grey shading and putting colour in with very little damage to the skin. Tattoos heal better and faster when done with the Lace Nano. A must buy for any artist using standard needles!

    I recently decided to invest in a lace nano. I had been intrigued by the design but was a little skeptical as I had seen some negative reviews.

    After a bit more research I came to believe that most of the bad reviews resulted from people either not understanding the need for tuning or amateurs being unaware of how to set up for the job at hand.

    I received my machine this week and like most tattooist was like a kid at Christmas unboxing my new toy.

    The presentation is top class. A nice, robust box, well padded and all securely packed. You get a certificate of authentication and a straight forward instruction leaflet.

    After removing the power supply, wires and machine I quickly had it set up and running. You get a nice adaptor for different mains points in the box also.

    Over the last few days I have put the machine through its paces on lining, grey shading, colour packing, blending and solid black work.

    First off it is insanely light. I literally don’t feel like I am holding a tattoo machine. With disposable grips it is like holding a solid fountain pen. At first this was a bit strange but as I adjusted I found myself running lines effortlessly with the same feeling as if sketching. For grey shading it felt really intuitive and comfortable during a three hour session. Same for packing solid pigment.

    The nano is super easy to tune if you are used to setting up a coil machine. You can balance stoke length, strike softness/firmness on the go with the two adjustable nuts. Speed can be adjusted from super slow to very fast on the power pack. It is quite amazing to be able to run it real slow but with no power loss due to how the brushless motor and power supply works together.

    I can honestly say my work rate has increased using this machine and hand fatigue decreased.

    Lines are sharp and defined. Colour goes in smooth. You can set it super soft, short throw, run a little faster and get nice smooth shades and blends. No loss of torque on larger needle groups.

    All in all I am incredibly pleased with the Lace Nano.

    My only niggle would be that the vibration is quite noticeable through the frame. It is no big problem but took me a little getting used to. If this could get dampened a bit it would be an advantage.

    For any tattooist that is confident in tuning a machine and understands how to adjust for different requirements I would recommend the lace nano without hesitation. For beginners or those only used to standard rotary machines I would still recommend it but would suggest either getting a bit of help setting up initially or read up properly on how the adjustment works and how to set up for specific requirements.

    All in all a great product and a pleasure to use. It’s nice not to be disappointed when you take a chance on something new and different.

    As a 4th year professional artist, I was looking to upgrade from the direct drive rotaries that I, like a growing number of other new generation artists, started with. I was looking for something with a much wider range of capabilities and fine tuning. I wanted a machine that would push virtually any size needle set I wanted, as fast or slow, hard or soft as I wanted.. After much research I decided to go with a LACEnano.
    I was a bit afraid of the unfamiliar technology, but I figured I’de take a gamble and I am GLAD I did. If you’re considering buying one, here are a few things you should know.
    The LACEnano has to be run with the unique LACEnano power supply and cord because frankly, it couldn’t do what it does without it. It is a new wave of technology.
    Your machine speed is independent from your voltage, as is your hit, and the power supply self-adjusts as needed for different tasks.
    The stroke and hit are independently controlled by two small nuts at the base of the armature bar. They both have a very wide range..
    This means you can set it to do virtually anything you want and back again in a matter of seconds.
    In my search for a rotary AS tuneable as a coil, I found one that may very well be MORE tuneable.
    It is essentially the next level coil machine – acoil machine that is almost completely weightless. The magnetic drive means no parts are rubbing and wearing on each other, which means it requires NO MAINTENANCE. You can autoclave it and/or clean it with whatever your favorite germ killer is (Madacide etc) without worry of gunking it up, and no over-oiling. No oiling at all..

    I highly suggest Coil users give it a try, if you haven’t yet found a rotary you like.
    I highly suggest it to rotary users, constantly searching for a true, fully tuneable all-purpose machine..LACEnano is it.

    (P.S. – I have seen a few negative reviews, and they were all people who clearly did not read the manual, and were unaware they needed to TUNE this machine with the stroke and give nuts, unlike the direct drives they are clearly used to. The tuning is what makes this machine so amazing, and if you are aware of this, it is extremely self-explanatory, easy and rewarding to do).

    The lacenano has been on my wish list for about two years, ever since I discovered it. So I finally treated myself. And…….. I am Not disappointed! It is everything I hoped for. Believe it, everything is true. They are light, will line beautifully, will pack color fast, and will shade like no other! Yes, everyone will have a cretique, I do, but they are minimal compared to what this machine is! Hands down the best all around! I will be ordering a couple more only because I use multiple machines for very detailed pieces. Also, I will haven’t used any other machine since my Nanos arrived!
    Thank you laceRotarty!

    The best machine on the market hands down! Powerful ,pragmatic, light, every thing I was looking for .that being said I’m going to start with the few minor issues. I love the audio jacks for power cord I’ve been converting all of my machines to that for years now you don’t get verying speeds like clip cords lighter they snap in place unlike VGA cord that or often taped to the machine…. But some times you can get a poor connection I solve this with conductive jelly ( bulb grease ) I’m not sure how autoclaving would affect that but it solves the problem I think some types of simple locking device would solve this like a set screw or screwed in jack .the other issue is some times the stroke adjustment nut will vibrate out of place a simple locking nut would solve this issue I’ve just been rapping my rubber band under it seams to solve the issue. I’ve even considered using using a spot of lock tight. and the only other thing I would love as an option would be a direct drive version or conversion that could run cartridges but I don’t think they care for carriage systems….now for attributes!!!!! power! The brush less motor should run for ever ( i run my machine constantly with toggle Bose foot switch for rediculous hours)brushes are going to let you down plus you get moor tourk in a lighter package Only rotary strong enough to push 18rl and 24mag soft enough to effortlessly run super title 5 RL with out blowout! 1.6oz eliminate s hand fatigue for those 14 hour seasons. And gives you enough feeling you know how that line lays before you wipe. No plastic hear this is a surgical tool built to title tolerances dry dental bearings forged aluminum. It would be much more convenient if there were more well known vendors to order from (kingpin, icon devices etc.). I would go above and beyond and be a good advocate for the brand if given the opportunity for sponsorship. I take pride in my work and my machines. I only use the best. And overall pleased with the product.

    The feel of the machine is astonishing, it feels like I’m using a pen or writing tool because it is so light. The only weight I could actually feel was from my stainless steel FAT grips. It is very easy to change out for different tubes and needles. I finished this 4 leaf clover cover up tattoo using the LACEnano exclusively. The person I was working on had mentioned to me that the quietness of the machine also made a big difference in her pain tolerance level. She said she felt more comfortable and did not once feel annoyed by the sound she was used too by noisy teeth grinding sounds that coils make. Also color layed in on just 1 or 2 passes with no problem pushing a 9 round shader and liner.

    I really love this little machine and it will now be my primary workhorse for all my future tattoos.The simplicity of this machine is genius and I love the fact that there are no fragile parts. Everything is solid, it performs soundly and cleanup was easy.

    After eyeing the Lacenano up for a while I decided to take the plunge and buy one. I wasn’t disappointed, it’s great for lining, colouring with rounds and colour packing/shading with mags. It’s fully adjustable and much lighter than my other machines, meaning my hands aren’t suffering like they had been with coils. The customer service is also fantastic, any query I’ve had has been addressed immediately by the super friendly crew. I’d definitely recommend to others (and have done so already in my studio and to friends).

    We got one around last April and it took a while to step aside from the traditional coil machines and start using it but now… Work is done faster and both lining and shading are better. We want a second one!! One for liners and one for shaders… Maybe!

    Regulating the thing needs listening to its noise and the skin. If you still use coils, it might take some time to get used to it. Once you handle vibration (it is light and vibrates more than traditional machines), LaceNano will become your inseparable friend.

    It’s a huge product. Well done.

    I brought one of these a few months ago and I will definitely say that I’m super happy with it. My work has jumped at least 20% since I started using this machine and I can’t fault it in any way. I use it for lining mostly pushing 7’s-11’s and I would recommend it to any artist. ??

  13. 5 out of 5

    Hands down the best machine I’ve ever had. I was leery at first; the full adjustability, the ability to sterilize, the power, the light weight… all sounded too good to be true. I’ve used plenty of rosaries that claimed “full adjustability” only to be left dissapointed. This machine is everything the advertising said it would be.. I managed to get one of the first run machines through a third-party vendor even after they went on back order through the main site. It can push an 11 liner like a heavy hard coil machine, or a 1 liner like a feather for ultra-fine work. As a lady I have a hard time finding a machine that is small and light enough to not hurt my hands, but powerful enough to punch a 15 mag when needed. I will definitely be buying a second machine, because even though it is fully adjustable from liner to shader, I like to have both set-ups so I can switch back and forth without having to take the time to swap needles and tubes. This machine has sped up my average tattoo time, and I find that the tattoos I have done with it so far have healed very quickly, and clients report less pain when the machine is running, maybe due to how fast and clean it pushes. This machine looks and feels great, it has clean smooth body lines, and the engineering that went into it definitely kept the artist’s needs in mind.
    I’d give it 6 Stars if I could.
    I would definitely purchase this machine again.

    I get a couple the last year, honestly i love the way its feels, the lightest machine with the punch from a rotary. 100% in love…

    Compre dos maquinas el año pasado en el lanzamiento , tuve que esperar varios meses pero valió la pena, la más pequeña maquina que e tenido hasta ahora, pero con una gran potencia para realizar trabajos de varias horas, recomendables al 100% estoy pensando en adquirir otra para tener mi set completo. Atte. Serpico tattoo studio

    So I was one of the first to get one last year in August. I truely love this machine. It has the consistency of a rotary but I you want it can punch like a coil. I had it for a few months and had an issue with the motor. Things happen it was a first run so no worries here. I sent the machine to them to replace the motor and got it back within a week from the us to Slovenia and back. Excellent communication and customer service. I couldn’t be happier with my interactions with the wonderful and polite people at lace. A+++ in every category. Highly recommend this machine. One of the most versatile ever. My two cents.
