Tattoo Artist Gets The World's First Tattoo Arm Prosthesis
on 10 June 2016
Twenty-two years ago, tattoo artist JC Sheitan Tenet lost his lower right arm. This didn't prevent him from continuing with his artistic passion, but recently, compelled by the desire to draw tattoos with his missing limb, he helped to imagine the incredible. Partnering with tattoo artist (and engineer) Gonzal, he offered up an old prosthetic arm, which Gonzal then turned into the world's first prosthetic tattoo arm. The mechanized limb with tattoo machine embedded is light enough to make it highly efficient. Tenet moves it along with his shoulder—and the results are remarkable.
