Making your passion a job is always a wonderful thing, especially when you are born with a physical problem that could affect your existence but that you can get around with so much willpower and determination.
This could be a summary of the life of Brian Tagalog, a 27-year-old Hawaiian artist who became the first professional tattoo artist in the world to have no hands. So how does he do the tattoos, you ask? Simple, using your feet!
When Brian moved from Hawaii to Arizona he tried to persuade several tattoo artists to be taught the trade, without success. Thanks to the help of his grandmother, however, he was able to buy his first machine and refine his technique using his feet.
After 11 long years in the mess and a lot of rejections, today Brian finally opened his tattoo shop "Tattoo by foot". The greatest satisfaction of him? The expressions of happy customers when they realize his skill despite the physical limitation.
