An amputee for 22 years, tattoo artist JC Sheitan has decided to put his prosthetic arm in the hands of Gonzal, a biomechanic sculptor, to create a unique tattooing tool.
"It was a great challenge like I love them"
It's in these terms Gonzal recalls the unique request of tattoo artist JC Sheitan. Specialized in metal sculptures inspired by H.R. Giger and Steampunk, the French sculptor has customized a prosthetic arm with an integrated tattoo machine. His client recently caught the attention of the tattoo community when he used his mechanical arm to tattoo at a French convention. The video soon went viral, as well as the story of JC Sheitan and the art of Gonzal.
