World’s First Tattoo Machine Prosthetic Arm

JC Sheitan Tenet has the world’s first prosthetic arm that is actually a functional tattoo gun.


Tenet lost his arm 22 years ago, and feared he would never realize his dream of becoming a tattoo artist. French engineer/artist JL Gonzal constructed the prosthetic, and now Tenet has his artistic medium as a literal extension of his body!



Gonzal has since been working on improvements to the design to give tattooing a more natural feel. Amazing, no?

Such a strange and beautiful combination of manufactured material and otherworldly organic matter.
