Tattooed Prosthetic LimbThis great company, GTOPI, airbrushes carbon fiber prosthetic limbs with tattoo art. The owner of the company is a trained Orthotic and Prosthetic Technician and was twenty years into wearing a prosthetic when he created his own socket. He applied a tattoo to it, thereby the tattooed prosthetic was born.

He has come up with a unique innovative method for applying artwork to braces and prosthetics.   Horkey’s process vastly expands the options beyond the laminated fabric choices currently available.

The company recently received approval from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), paving the way to become a U.S. government contractor. They said this now allows them to offer their services to veterans at VA hospitals and clinics on a nationwide basis. Visit their site to see more of the artwork they offer.  They also do custom designs.
