Aaron Cain's biomechanical style is derived from a variety of influences outside traditional tattooing. He looks to architecture, ironwork, sea life and nature. Aaron feels strongly abount never using other tattoos as reference material. He sums it up in one word: cannibalistic.
Most of Aaron's clients commit to sessions of 10 to 12 hours a day. With a block of four days to work within, the first step is to give him some direction with which he creates a sketch. Then, he draws directly on the skin before tattooing the outline, followed by coloring and shade.
When comparing the hand poked designs and punk rock icons of his high school days to the tattoos of today, Aaron finds himself being held to a much higher standard in an industry with a level of quality that is through the roof.
Aaron Cain is a name synonymous with craftsmanship. Since he began selling tattoo machines in 1995, Aaron has been setting the standard by which all other machine builders are forced to adhere, both in visual appeal and performance. Constantly pushing himself with new challenges and projects, Cain keeps his work schedule more than full, with machine building, blacksmithing, sculpture, painting, and tattooing.
When Aaron isnít pursuing his artistic endeavors he enjoys golfing and scuba diving. He currently resides in California with his wife Christine, son Fletcher, and his dog, Soni.
