One-Armed Tattoo Artist Builds Tattoo-Drawing Prosthetic That Ultimately Changed His Life


He lost his arm more than two decades ago.

JC Sheitan Tenet lost his arm 22 years ago, making it hard for him, since he had special interest in making tattoos. He could only wish that he would be able to share his art someday. It was until his fellow French artist and engineer Gonzal partnered with him to create not just a prosthetic replacement, but an arm that could tattoo!

What the device has in futurism it lacks in precision. Tenet must guide it with his shoulder, although the creators hope to add finger and wrist-like movements to the arm as soon as possible.

“What started out as a sculpture is now something that I can use,” Tenet tells Motherboard. “[Gonzal and I] understood that we didn’t have to recreate a hand as a prosthetic; we just had to create a tool that is better than a hand.”

Today, after Tenet got used to the said device—and after a few adjustments made by Gonzal—the device works as if it was part of his body! Look at the cyborg tattoo artist’s story below:
