I do and my mum does. Oops

Don't get me wrong. They can usually look good, eg. on the singer Tairrie B (http://www.vanishingtattoo.com/tattoo/celeb-b.htm), or as part of a larger design, but on their own they look about as cool as Robbie Williams' patchwork quilt of a canvas.

FUCK THIS lol

from FAQ.org

: Make a Tattoo Gun

I've personally used this so I know it works…
Things you'll need:

* bic pen (this is your tube that houses the needle)
* 4 or 5" section of guitar string ,second one from the smallest. ( this is your needle)
* tooth brush ( this gets bent like a "7" and joins the pen to the motor)
* an eraser from a pencil (this joins the shaft of the motor to the needle/guitar string)
* small battery operated motor (from a "walkman" or a hand held fan)
* some tape (to join everything together)

Putting the pieces together:

1. Take the guitar string and bend a little bit of the end down or up.
2. Take out the ink tube of the pen, and cut it to about a 3 or 4" length, now file down the brass tip of the pen to get the ball out, make the hole big enough to allow passage of the needle.
3. Insert the needle into the pen.
4. Now take the tooth brush and cut off the bristles making it about 4" long. Heat it up in the middle with a lighter and bend it in to a "7" and hold in place untill stiff.
5. Join/tape the pen needle assembly to the tooth brush.
6. Now take the eraser from the pencil and shove it onto the shaft of the motor, try to get it as dead center as possible. Join the pen/needle/tooth brush to the motor/eraser assembly, tape the brush to the motor.
7. Take the bent part of the needle/guitar stirng and stick it into the eraser, IMPORTANT- the needle must be purposely OFF CENTER.
8. Now all that is left to do is find a power source, I used the plug-in adapter frrom a cd player. i guess you could hook up some batteries to a switch and then to the contacts of the motor.

tatoo now = expensive laser removal later! Fine if your in the Navy where they are seen as one of the rights of passage but, ew - on both girls and guys, especially as you get older…

i got a few when i was younger before i knew about them, now im a big tattoo fan and although it sounds poncey appreciate the art of them as ive been studying them for a few years and have seen some beautiful ones. I've been planning a half sleeve for a while now, ill post some pics when its done….

appreciate they're not for everyone, also they dont suit everyone. But thereS is a big difference between 'i luv mum' and a full japanese bodysuit.

Can you reccomend any magazines, web sites etc that could help someone find more information on tattoo designs. Im sill looking for inspiration for my first tattoo!
