Abstract | Inspiration | Method | Result | Presentation Video


The ergonomic situation amongst tattoo artists is often overlooked when thinking of the tattoo industry, but it is nonetheless a huge problem, where ergonomics primarily results in chronic aches in the back, neck and shoulders. This project has mainly aimed at relieving the tattoo artist’s back while working, thus prolonging the professional career.
