Aaron Cain
Born in 1971 in Pacific Grove, California, a young Aaron Cain distinctly remembers having a lot of time on his hands to dabble in art and learn about its mechanics. He was told by all who knew him that he would grow up to be an artist, and by the time he was 18, he embarked on his tattoo journey. Very much influenced by science fiction and the macabre, Cain credits his exposure to work of H.R. Giger as having forever changed him as an artist. Equally influential on Cain's style is Alphonse Mucha. Recognized as a leader in the Biomechanical tattoo movement, the early ink Cain received on his own body by Greg Kulz allowed Cain to see the infinite possibilities of the Biomechnical style. Aside from the art of tattooing itself, Aaron Cain is a name synonymous with craftsmanship. Since he began selling machines in 1995, Cain has been setting the standard by which all other machine builders are forced to adhere, both in visual appeal and performance.
