From Ellusionist and acclaimed performer Wayne Houchin (creator of Sinful, the signed coin through soda can) comes Stigmata.

The spectator thinks of anything. A name. A number. A memory. With the thought in mind, the spectator squeezes your wrist. Tightly.

Full Overview

When the spectator releases, red marks appear on your arm where they were squeezing. These marks of blood under the skin then slowly, visually, clearly re-arrange themselves into the shape of the spectator's selection. Seeing is believing.

"... beats out any predecessors that came anywhere close to it."
- Banachek, one of the world's foremost mentalists

The unparalleled DVD features in-depth, precise instruction on multiple applications of this ingenious technique. Armed with this knowledge, you will have the power to unleash an effect on your spectators that some of the brightest minds in magic have regarded as a gold-certified gem.

"... blurs the line of illusion and reality."
- Andrew Gerard, Consultant, A&E's Mindfreak Series
  • No gimmicks, props, or setup. No reset.
  • Impromptu-- in every sense
"... it surpasses Sinful."
- Roy Ornelas, TX
  • Everything is taught in complete detail
  • Available in high resolution download and DVD
"... leave spectators speechless."
- Bethea Baker, NC
"... the effect has been fine tuned to a near masterpiece."
- David E. Smith, AZ

    I was really cautious about getting this trick, worrying that it might be a little too complicated for myself or possibly just too easy to make a mistake. Boy, was I wrong. This is a truly stunning effect that has received my best reactions to date. It's beginner friendly, fits well with any routine, and is easily worth the money. Thank you for this brilliant... "ellusion" ;D

    To be quite honest this might be the best trick on E. You can do this anywhere, anytime, any place. I freaked myself out just practicing. You can pick this up in less than 3 minutes. Wayne explains everything in detail. This is truely amazing, and I can't wait to freak my wife out.....

    This was the first time I've seen anything from Wayne, and after reading the reviews I had to get it. By far the best and most entertaining download on this site that I've come across. Not only does he break down every move in great detail, but he also shows you moves to set the trick up(like a card force) for people not familiar with things like that. The trick is easy to do, but my favorite part of it all is how entertaining the video was. Lots of comedy injected into the video by wayne during his performances(he show you many of those with different types of people), but he's also funny when he's teaching one on one. Stop reading these reviews and just buy it.

    A very creepy way to reveal a card. If you wanna go all mindfreak style like Criss Angel, this is the trick for you lol.

    Mr. Wayne Houchin. Congraz, you have just exploded my mind. And then I watched the video and it was restored. only for me to explode some of my friends minds and continuing to destroying strangers minds. Not literally though, but very close. One of my spectators actually got into somewhat of a shock! To anyone who is uncertain wether to buy this, only one thing to say, BUY IT! BUY IT, because if you don't you WILL MISS OUT on something AMAZING!

    This trick is freaky. In numerous ways actually. The first being how scary it is for spectators and the second being how easy it is to do. Wayne is one of my favorite teachers and this is a great DVD.

    This is an amazing trick that plays as real magic. This does not, however, work with all skin types. It does with most light skin and all dark skin.

    You likely don't need another 5 star review for Stigmata - but it's one of the best DVDs in magic that I've ever purchased. HIGHLY recommended and way underpriced for this extremely strong routine. Carry it with me every single day.

    It should go without saying that this trick does not work if you aren't the average Joe. That is if you have a darker skin type or hairy arms (no, not just "Uncle Vitto" style hair, anything above a few hairs makes this hard) you'll find it hard to make this one convincing and visible. If you do, however, it's insanely cool.

    This has to be one of the best tricks that doesnt require tons of sleight of hand practice.

    I had even people cursing like crazy. people crying. wow incredible. All the other tricks on ellusionist are harder at least, in skill wise but this is just so pure and elegant so street magic, voodoo, witchcraft stuff, just great.

    Pure and simple; Stigmata is my favorite effect of all time!

    If you are looking for an easy to do, mind-blowing miracle that is impromtu, cheap, and well-taught, then one would usually tell you there is no trick on the market that ideal. They're wrong.

    Insanely Impromtu
    Different kind of Magic
    Well Taught and Funny DVD
    Amazing Reactions
    Three Versions to choose from

    (1st version Pros):
    Only need a deck of cards

    (2nd version):
    [Best version]
    Gets your business card out there
    No Force
    Audience emotionally connects with the magic
    Fun to do

    (3rd Version):
    Need absolutely nothing
    Best effect if done properly

    1 in 1000 people actually figure it out

    (1st Version):

    (2nd Version):
    [Best Version]
    Need a pen
    Need a business card

    (3rd Version):
    Could possibly make the wrong number appear

    Overall: 10.5/10
    You will perform this because there is no reason not to. And do the second version, that is the full routine that hits the hardest.
