Along with the strong breakthrough rise of the modern tattoo industry in the development of electric tattoo machines, some masters, on the contrary, are following the path of retro-meditation using only hand tools in their work. This way of tattooing, as you probably already know, is called handpoke.

This technique requires the highest concentration, accuracy and hardness of the hand of the master. Every millimeter of work requires close attention and incredible accuracy, or the final work will turn into a banal homemade tattoo.

Brendon, who is known as the "Welfare Dentist" from Toronto (Canada) - one of those who lifts the handpoke tattoo to a new level. Incredible accuracy of each line is simply amazing, and the refinement of his work is a real pleasure for any connoisseur of a tattoo. Looking at each line, it's amazing to realize that all this was done by hand!

In addition to the usual black pigment for the handpoke tattooing, "Welfare Dentist" also uses contrasting pastel shades, adding sensuality and style to his works.

When you look at his portfolio comes the understanding that tattoos made by hand do not must be only simple at all. They can be elegant and creative as any other work done by an electric machine, if a real artist holds a needle in his hands.
