Tim Hendricks is a second-generation artist. He was taught by his father, Don Hendricks, at a young age. Tim has been tattooing professionally since 1994. He got his start by tattooing local gang members in the neighborhood he grew up in during his mid-teens. Today Tim spends most of his time skateboarding and surfing. He’s also working on a couple of book projects involving pin-ups.

Tim was passed down the art of building hand made tattoo machines from his mentor – Mr. Dan Dringenberg. Each one-off machine is carefully made to fit each artist. Every part on Tim’s machines are custom made. The coils are hand wound and every piece is hand crafted with precision, care and patience.
