Mark Weston Early History With Artistry Concepts

Mark Weston at Age 16
Mark Weston With His First Tattoos at Age 16
Mark Weston received his first tattoos in Hong Kong while in the Navy in the late 1970s at age 16. So enthusiastic about this newfound art, Weston found every chance he could to apprentice part-time under Asian tattoo master Pinkey Lee in Hong Kong. Weston perfected this art for the next 40 years.

A highly unusual combination and the first of it’s kind, the disbelievers insisted this “marriage” of an art studio, custom tattooing, and permanent cosmetics would never survive to service the needs of all three markets. Mark Weston has never been conventional, and the idea took off like wildfire.

Weston once again grabbed the attention of the local media with his unusual combination in March of 2008.
Mark Weston - First Video in 2009
First Video in August of 2009 Before the Development of the ACHM Needle

In March of 2009, Weston was interviewed for a local news segment on SNN Television (Sarasota News Network). This video was taped several months before Weston developed his first custom ACHM needle. At the time of this video, Weston was still using the smallest commercial needle available. As late as 2013, other scalp micropigmentation companies heavily criticized Weston’s hair pigmentation in this video without the regard of the needles that were developed months later.

Weston developed the first ACHM needle in October of 2009 and was promptly followed by the now patented ACHM2 needle in December of 2009 (now The Weston System.)

Weston in fact was the first scalp pigmentation provider in the USA. You may read the informative blog article Who Started Scalp Micropigmentation in the USA?
