Tattoo artist gets world’s first prosthetic tattoo machine arm

After losing part of his right arm 22 years ago, tattoo artist JC Sheitan Tenet was no longer able to use his right arm to draw tattoos. He didn’t think he’d ever be able to use it again. Well now he can thanks to French artist JL Gonzal who created this arm using an old prosthesis he no longer used, a record player, and sewing machine parts. The tattoo machine is attached to the prosthesis and the controls and cables run the length of the arm so it doesn’t get in the way.

Watch him in action here!
