Push the edge of what is understood.

The Stained Skin Tattoo Line was created by Ellusionist in 2005. Since the first tattoos (which were used in a promotion and were not available for sale at the time), the line was honed, expanded, and tested hard.

The tricks you will learn in this DVD were conceived by Ray, Wayne Houchin and Brad Christian. They were taken into the street, tested hard, and polished from there.


Full Overview

The DVDs introduce rising close-up star Ray Singson. Ray’s honesty with the camera and intimate knowledge of street magic made him the ideal candidate to teach this style of body magic. His mind disappears around a corner before most people know the corner is there. 

“The final cut looks phenomenal.  It's like a gritty blend between a feature film and magic special.  SO good.  The editing throughout the project is gritty and MTV.  It's everything I wanted to see in E since it first got started.”
- Raymond Singson, PA, USA

The misconception with these tattoos is that it's just a force, and a reveal of the tattoo on your arm. Nothing could be further from the truth. The tattoos will go on almost any object... a plastic milk carton in the fridge, on a see-through water bottle, underneath the stamp on an envelope, on your hand, your body, your clothes. This is your chance to USE your imagination. [For more info, see tabs on right].

“Ellusionist has taken the tattoo concept to a whole other level. There is nothing like this on market! The production is CINEMATIC…”
- Steve Pelligrino, St. Louis, MO.

We Say


So here's the deal.

What you get on the DVD is essentially the product of a week's worth of workshopping with the tattoos. Every morning while I was out there, Brad and I got together and conjured up different ideas, effects, presentations, and performance tips for the project. Because we were so compressed with time, you'll notice that you may get a lot of raw, underdeveloped plots. Despite that-- you'll also notice that these raw ideas still get the hardcore reactions we all strive for.

I point this out to mention that I did not have much time to really analyze and play with the tattoos as thoroughly as I would have liked. There MAY actually be a way to hide the ink while it's on your skin. Merely because Brad and I didn't think of a method doesn't and SHOULDN'T limit what you may potentially think of, yourself.

Some people have speculated that all you can do with the tattoos are card revelations. When I received the tattoos, all I wanted to do was disprove that-- and there's a decent amount of material in the DVD set that shows that. There's material ranging from classic card revelations to mindreading to coin magic and offbeat card magic. It's very versatile and you can tweak and create the material to better suit what you want to express in the magic you perform.

Brad wanted to create a project that would help introduce aspiring magicians to the basics in card magic and mentalism. This DVD set accomplishes that. He also wanted a project to help inspire seasoned performers to think creatively outside the box. Since some of the effects on the DVD are essentially raw thoughts put into action, I believe we set a great foundation for people to find some hidden value all throughout the project.
