Absolutely Amazing!!

These chairs are super comfy!! We purchased them for our tattoo artist, who often times are sitting for 6+ hours and suffer from really bad back pain. So far my artist have loved them and say it definitely helps with comfortability!

Exceeded Expectations

The price point was high, but I have been nothing but elated with the back relief during long seated sessions (both tattoo and surgical). This is an unbiased, unpaid review, and I do endorse this product without reservation. I’ve had spinal surgery, and it is a Godsend for me.

Thank you. That's truly a reward far greater than any other for us.

Best chair I’ve ever used in over 20 years tattooing!

Great design and extremely comfortable. It’s wonderfully crafted and highly adjustable. Worth every penny!

Love this chair!

I have been using my nuchair for about 2 weeks now and I already can feel a huge improvement in my back pain. I got this chair because my chiropractor recommended sitting on a towel or small pillow to help elongate my spine while tattooing, and this chair is designed to do just that! It is incredibly comfortable and very solid quality. It had a small learning curve with how to sit in it properly and adjust it, but the videos they had on YouTube were very helpful and I had a brief zoom meeting with Mike that helped confirm I was using it correctly. 10/10 customer service and quality, I highly recommend this chair.

NuChair for a dentist

After using a saddle seat for the past 12 years I needed an upgrade. I was almost about to get a new saddle seat then came across this design. After 3 weeks of use working on patients I have no regrets of purchasing this rather than a saddle seat as my core does not get tired as quickly!

Thank you Iain, so glad you NuChair is helping!

Helping save my back while I tattoo

I’ve used my chair for a week and love it. I’m more aware of my posture and my lower back isn’t fatigued like it was. There are plenty adjustment options to customize the position to a perfect fit, and the arm rest helps stabilize my arm while tattooing. The seat is well padded and a generous size but not cumbersome. There was a small tear on the front cushion when I unboxed it and Mike offered right away to replace the piece without any hassle to me of shipping the damage piece back. My only complaint is when I shift my weight (I’m a 125lbs) it makes a creaking sound. This isn’t ideal as my clients often fall asleep and the sound is enough to wake someone. Overall I feel this is a sound investment and very happy with the chair.

Hi Meredith, I'm very glad your NuChair is helping. That's the first I've heard of the creaking sound. Let's see if we can get that fixed for you. We'll reach out to you by email today.

At first I was like hmm, then I was like whoa! I can tattoo all day in this thing

Thanks so much for the rapid response. Honestly, I am extremely impressed with your customer service and wanted you to know it is very much appreciated and it really is great to see a company that works this hard to please its customers. It also is very reassuring seeing a company display confidence in their product and is able to respond with descriptive and educational response, to effectively troubleshoot the potential issues. I feel like you guys deserve a well thought out response for the effort you put into your operation.

Thanks so much Austin, so glad you got the Woah! And thanks for the appreciation. Our goals are the best quality product, the best possible customer service, and a solution that actually works.

Great chair!

Awesome chair that really helps my posture while working. My only criticism would be to possibly make the seat itself a bit more narrow. As a shorter person sometimes getting out of the chair is difficult because of how wide it is. That aside, it’s a well made product and has helped a ton with my hip and lower back pain.

Thanks for the review India, relieving your back and hip pain is what we live for. We're working on a smaller seat option, it should be available 1st or 2nd quarter of 2023. We're going to a make it easy for existing customers to retrofit. Please keep in touch, and keep enjoying your NuChair!

Versatile and comfortable!

I've have this chair for several months now and have truly enjoyed the experience. I love how adjustable it is per person and having the choice to use the front rest or not is great for different positions! It is plush and is not easily worn down and has a nice wide seat that leaves me feeling balanced. After using it vs other chair types, this has helped my back and posture while tattooing tenfold. Big investment for a big gain! Thanks Nuchair, would definitely recommend!

I can definitely tell a difference

I would say a solid 4 out of 5. I sit about 8 hours a day. Saving my back one day at a time. The only reason I'm not throwing a solid 5 ,is a small corner on the back came untucked. It shouldn't be a big deal, but my OCD says otherwise. Love the chair.

Thanks Sean! I'm glad we can help save your back. As for the untucked corner, that should be covered under warranty. I'll send you an email now to get the process started.

Worthwhile Investment

I started my tattoo apprenticeship at the beginning of this year, and ordered a NuChair a couple months in. The difference I noticed in stability and body fatigue were significant enough in the first few days that I knew the benefits were going to make the purchase worth it. I'm happy with this product and look forward to being able to tattoo for years to come without all the pains and aches that generally come along with this career.

Didn’t like at first…

I hated it at first but now I love it! I was sitting in it the wrong way. I thought he sat in it like a regular chair and when I did that it made my legs go numb. Another artist told me to sit on it backwards like in your pictures which I didn’t even think to look at. I only bought the chair from a recommendation from my friends without even seeing how to use it. Then when I learned how to sit on the right way I couldn’t breathe that first the chest plate was jamming me right my diaphragm and I was like… Who the hell can Tattoo with this chair I was gonna really throw it out into the street but then I sat on it the right way and I accidentally pull the lever that allowed the chair to adjust to where the chest pad moved into a much more comfortable position so now it’s a pleasure to sit on LoL definitely worth the money. I’m a big boy 230 pounds so sometimes it’s a little hard for me to get out of the chair but if I put it down low it’s easy to get out of. I’m just lazy but I love the chair thank you so much this blows away anything Tatsoul sells and definitely is better than anything relax the back of sells

Thanks much for sticking with it Malakai. Shortly before shipping, we send out emails with instructions on using your NuChair and how the adjustments work, with links to videos. However not everyone reads all the emails they get, as bombarded as we are with them nowadays. Your comments really drive home the point that we need to put more literature in the boxes that NuChairs ship in. I'm going to make sure it gets done right away. Thanks for the eye opener, and all the best.

Wouldnt be able to tattoo without it

This chair was a game changer for me. Was hesitant for a bit to order cause it seemed a bit pricey. But after using it, i wish i would have ordered it sooner. Great investment for tattoo artists

Thanks Castro, I'm really glad you took the chance with us.

Great chair

As a tattoo artist with an already aching back it sure wasn't going to hurt trying a new chair. What I didn't expect was nearly immediate relief of my lower back pain. This chair is of exceptional quality. The fabric to the levers. Everything is high quality. The worst tattoos for me are on legs. Even with my client chair at its highest I still end up bent over for hours. The way this chair adjusts to support my chest takes all of the strain off of my back. Just feels like I'm laying forward instead of bending over. The chair is very sturdy. Even angled completely forward it never offers to tip or feel off balance. Your legs act as 2 legs of a tripod so it sits well balanced. I've recommended this chair to all of my fellow tattoo artists.

Thanks Danny! People in many fields of work are damaging their backs while sitting, none moreso than artists who lean into and over their work. We're so glad that NuChair is helping to reduce that damage.

Quality that you pay for.

Solid but I won’t buy at that price point. It was steep when I bought at the discounted intro price. If I had extra cash again and was in need I’d buy again, quality is tip top I’m not sure how it could improve other than making the hydraulic shorter so the seat goes lower. Love to have more at the shop for my artists. It’s the last chair I’ll need in my tattooing career as long as the hydraulic holds up.

Thanks very much for the review,, always wonderful to hear. I would love to lower costs and pricing, but we refuse to allow quality to suffer by manufacturing in China. As for the gas piston, it too is covered by our 5 year warranty, please see warranty for terms. Please contact us if you have any issues or questions. If the gas piston were to fail after the warranty is up, it's still relatively easy and inexpensive to replace on NuChair, as well as on most other chairs with similar hydraulics. All the best, and thanks again!.

A very nice chair but may not be for me.

I really want to love this chair, everything about it is great. The problem is I’m short 5’2” so sitting down on it and getting up out of it in the straddling position is a struggle and awkward because the seat it so wide. So unfortunately I spent a ton of money and have only been able to use it as a “normal” chair when I bought it to help my back by using it in the straddling position. I wish there was a different seat available for it.

Hi Howie, thanks very much for the review. There may be help in sight. We've been trying to engineer a smaller seat option for situations like yours, Keep an eye on the website for when that option is available, it should be sometime first quarter of next year. If you'd like to email us, we'll be glad to put you on a reminder list. We hope we can add a couple of stars to your NuChair experience!

Awesome

This chair has saved my back more than ever. I’ve been tattooing over 16 years and have old lifting injuries and this has help so much instead of a regular chair you lean for with. The support and design makes it work. Also looks great in the shop I have 2 other employees who have also ordered them after trying mine out.

Thanks very much Bobby, super glad we can help.

Got rid of my wife’s lower back pain!

We love Nuchair! My wife is an esthetician and is always hovering over her clients faces when doing facials or eye brows. Nuchair got rid of her pain from repetitive posture.

Great to hear that Don, thanks much for the review. And as we say in my household, happy wife, happy life!

Extremely Comfortable!

I am incredibly pleased with my NuChair! Rather than rushing into a review, I decided to take the time to give it a good test run first, so I could deliver an honest review.

First off, it was incredibly easy to assemble due to the fact that it ships in 2 pieces. Only down side, was that it was missing 2 screws on the same side of the plate attaching the chair to the legs (I had two extremely close calls on falling before I realized the issue) But. I don’t feel like this deserves any less stars, people make mistakes.

As for the chair itself, it is extremely comfortable. It took a few minutes to get my brain used to the leaning forward position, but once I was in the tattoo, it was smooth sailing. All of the chair adjustments are great, and the wheels are super smooth. The chair adjustments even make it possible to spin the chair around to a standard position if needed.

All of the ad’s were right! The non back pain after long tattoo sessions, is a WIN WIN for me!!!

I would recommend this chair (and have), to many of my friends within a plethora of careers.

Hi Kevin, thanks much for the review and even more for the info about the bolts. Wish you would have let us know right away. We already emailed you about that for more info, so we can improve our QC process before packaging. We're still fairly young and learning, every bit helps. Enjoy your NuChair and have a long and prosperous career!

Great Chair Great Service

The difference in my back pain is night and day. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia so my back pain has been a huge struggle for me. I no longer groan and whine when I stand after sitting for long periods of time, my bum nor leggies are falling asleep while working, my spine no longer feels like it has lock jaw when I straighten it to stand, and the scootability is smooooth.
The cushion is wide and thick so I feel comfortable and supported while sitting. None of that butt bone on hard surface business here.
Had an issue with my chair when I first got it but let me tell you, dealing with customer service was a breeze. They are very thorough when answering your question so you don’t leave the email with uncertainties. Super professional, cordial, knowledgeable, and responded quickly. They work really hard to find a resolution and make sure you feel like you’re being taken care of. Shout out to Mike for being so dope! You guys really do have a spectacular employee and I just wanted to make sure you knew.
Will recommend to others for sure!

This chair is a life-saver

I finally got my NuChair! It was most definitely worth the wait. I have had back pain from tilting forward while working . Permanent makeup takes hours of sitting in one position pretty much and it’s a lot of stress on the lower back. The NuChair takes it all away, no more back pain for me!🙌😁
It’s very well made, sturdy and comfortable. The angle of the seat and the front rest are a 100% customizable and adjustable. The legs can spread apart if you want, and that is a huge relief for the hips as well.
I highly recommend to get this chair if you have an occupation that requires long periods of seating, it is worth the investment!

Smart Purchase for a Manicurist

My legs and low back were instantly eased. Being able to lean forward and take pressure off of holding my neck out when I need to see some nails at an odd angle.

Best money invested

My husband is a tattoo artist and has been dealing with back pain for most of his career. This chair is one of the best investments we have made to his health! I have seen the difference this chair has made in not just his career life but our everyday family life. He no longer wakes up in pain like he use to! It has made a difference in his/our happiness!
Thank you NuChair!
