Hand Made Tattoo Machines by Tim Hendricks

February 13th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Friends | Videos - (Comments Off)

Here is a great video from you tube, of my dear friend Tim Hendricks in his machine shop.  I am proud to have in my collection a few hand made Tim Hendricks tattoo machines. I use a Tim Hendricks machine at least twice a day.

One of the things about a tattoo machine that I value the most is what I call the “mojo” of the machine (the soul that is put into it by the builder).  Every machine has a little bit of its own; “mojo”, where it came from, the style of the frame, the time it was being built, who was in the room, the engraving on the machine, the wraps of the coils, all these little things give a tattoo machine something special.  If your a tattooer and you don’t have a Tim Hendricks tattoo machine, your kinda missing out on some good shit, seen and unseen.   If you know Tim even half as well as I know Tim, you know that he really knows his shit when it comes to a tattoo machine, also he’s one of the best natured people I know.  Get some of that “mojo” you wont be sorry. Tattoo machines made with intelligence, heart and soul.  website>  SaltwaterTattoo.com twitter> @saltwatertattoo  

Thank you Tim for making some of the tools I can make a living with. And being a true friend. C/S

Ghetto Protected Crew member “Kiku”

GP is Family, a Crew, a Fellowship, and an understanding.

Made up mostly of quiet giants people you may have never heard of people who are constantly pushing independently, artistically and financially …Mostly fellas who have come from very humble beginnings and should never have made it as far as we have, dudes who have made it through the ghettos in which we were raised without being jailed or killed. And have made it beyond the traditional ghetto mentality … And instead of fighting over our blocks were fighting to buy our blocks…becoming owners not renters . Leaders not followers. Through any means… violently, politically, or poetically. Not just survive bit thrive.  And when we roll though hoods we are protected because real recognizes real. Ghetto Protected.  Were out to snatch fame from the lames…and chedder from the haters.  And give game to our youngsters… So they can stop looking up to wanksters.
