Hawaii/Los Angeles based tattooist and graffiti artist NORM MSK has been creating artworks since 1998 and although he now focuses mostly on tattooing, he is still at heart a graffiti artist.
He has also hand built hundreds of tattooing machines which he has cast from existing machines and then customised them. You can check out a gallery of his amazing creations on his website.
NORM explains that one the most important thing in both graffiti and tattooing is the first smooth line he says, you only get one chance to get the outline right so you have to get it right the first time.
