REV23 Development, Inc. (rev twenty-three) is the creator and developer of the popular REV23 Desktop tattoo and body piercing management software. REV23 Desktop (formerly known as Tattoo Management Studio from 2010-2017) is the only tattoo and body piercing shop management software that was specifically, and painstakingly designed for the industry, while every other software package on the market is originally for salons & spas and in fact contain no features specific to a tattooing or body piercing environment.
Developed from the ground up by founder Nate Laff, coding on REV23 Desktop began in the spring of 2007 and v1.0 was released on March 1, 2010.
While not a tattoo artist himself, Nate has a deep appreciation for the industry and the origins of REV23 began as a joint effort between himself and one of his tattoo artists while being tattooed back in 2007.
Since its release, REV23 has been incredibly well received by the industry; being featured in industry magazines and receiving rave reviews from users ranging across the United States and Canada to Australia, United Kingdom, Norway, Italy and Germany.
It’s no mistake or coincidence that REV23 is trusted and relied on by some of the most successful businesses and names in the industry. REV23 was chosen by these businesses, not given away.
On September 13, 2012, REV23 was acquired by Painful Pleasures, who had used the software and worked with Nate for several years beforehand. Nate continues to be the driving force behind REV23. From code, design, mascot, evangelist, interface, media, graphics, lead, tech writer, trainer, booth babe, conference goer and everything in-between.
On March 1st, 2017, the seventh anniversary of version 1.0, Tattoo Management Studio was re-branded as REV23 Desktop.
