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
