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 itâs that kind of DIY aesthetic thatâs 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 itâs done, we think it's pretty cool.
