Saw Frames & COLLECTIBLES
SOBAONE is a the tattoo machine brand of BJ Johnson. BJ is a tattooer and machine builder from Grand Rapids Michigan who began tattooing in late 1997 and started building machines in 1999. The year 2000 saw the release of the first models: the "Rusto" and the "Phantoms".
Over the years BJ has extensively experimented with surface finishes, frame fabrication processes, frame geometry and component materials. Nearly all of his energy had gone into creating a variety of coil machines. BJ still builds "customs" and "one-offs" on occasion, but these days spends a lot more time tattooing and making mixed media art pieces.
