A few words from Durb on this machine:

"The Bendu tattoo machine curves in all the right places and packs a punch with smooth consistency! The “Bendu” is a balanced and sophisticated iron tattoo machine that brings the tattoo artist the bonus of a powerful, lightweight liner with a slick frame design that has a soft, curved and comfortable look and feel. The centered force of the “Bendu” Liner machine brings balance to any artists hand with it’s flowing edges and recessed borders. The Bendu’s swing gate tube vise is an added bonus for a snug fit that is easy to get tubes in and out of!"
