Amputee Tattooist Gets The World’s First Tattoo Machine Prosthesis

400

Tattoos are awesome, and each is unique in its own special little way. But you won’t find a tattoo anywhere as unique as the ones done by JC Sheian Tenet. Why, you wonder? Because his tattoos aren’t done by hand. He does them with the coolest prosthetic we ever laid eyes on.

French tattoo artist, Tenet, lost his arm 22 years ago. To help out the amputee tattooist, French designer and artist JL Gonzal, created this steampunk style device by modifying his arm prosthesis to accommodate a tattoo machine. By doing so, Tenet just became the first man in the world with a fully functional, tattooing arm prosthesis.
