Watch the Cyborg Tattoo Artist in Action


For an artist, losing an arm could mean not only the end of their career, but also a devastating blow to their natural need to be creative. However, for JC Sheitan Tenet, losing his arm led to him becoming a “cyborg tattoo artist.”

When JC Sheitan Tenet lost his right arm, he didn’t lose his will to make incredible tattoos. In fact, working without an arm gave his work more meaning. Then Tenet met artist Jean-Louis Gonzal, who creates spellbinding “biomechanic” works, and the two brainstormed a remarkable custom prosthetic tattoo machine. The device can pivot 360 degrees and allows Tenet to create abstract designs unlike anyone else.

Check out JC’s incredible cyborg tattooing in the video below.
