Hand Made Tattoo Machines

  • 2 min read

Californian Tim Hendricks is an artist and a polymath: he skateboards, surfs, works on motorcycles and also puts in a good amount of time as a tattoo artist. You may also recognize him from the DMAX shows "Miami Ink" and "New York Ink".

He developed his craft as a teenager by tattooing local Hispanic gang members, and it’s that kind of DIY aesthetic that’s propelled Tim toward his latest venture - custom building tattoo machines.

Every aspect of the machine is custom made. Coils are hand wound, parts are hand crafted, which enables Tim to construct special one-off machines to order.

Check out this video of Tim hard at work and showing how it’s done, we think it's pretty cool.
