Artist Who Lost His Arm Now Has World's First Tattoo Machine Prosthetic

Artists who lose the use of their arms or hands often feel like their artistic careers are over, which is totally understandable considering how important hands are to an artist.

So when JC Sheitan Tenet lost his arm in an accident 22 years ago he thought he'd have to give up his dream of being a tattoo artist, but thanks to this incredible prosthetic arm he's now able to ink at will.

JC's amazing prosthetic arm was created by French artist/engineer JL Gonzal, who modified a normal prosthetic to accommodate a tattoo gun, and Gonzal has sworn to improve the design to give JC a more natural feel when he inks.

Gonzal's prosthetic arm may be in the early stages of development but it sure looks sharp!
