Did it my self using Sewing needle and india ink
Just seeing how it turns out, I couldnt clean out the little "groves" in my finger because I didnt want to scrub to much and rub the ink out
never understood the getting a tattoo for the sake of getting a tattoo......gotta couple designs i want related to my heritage and family but rather go without ink and eventually get what i really want than just getting something cheap for the sake of getting one.....
I've got summa those myself, I did them at about 13 years old (20 years ago now) they go from crappy to worse and the blurry pics don't help any either...
cr*** Anok & Peace sigil left forearm:
A silhouette of a skeleton climbing through barbed wire left forearm underside:
Toxic sign left upper arm:
Someday I'd like to either buy a real machine and redo them or have them redone or made into something better, like flowering vines and stuff growing out and over the toxic sign, a child waving the cr*** sign on a flag like on the Feeding of the 5000 LP sleeve, and the skeleton properly filled in with a glowing mushroom cloud behind it.
I had also done one tat in red - the Conflict "N" sign with eagle wings at my left wrist - however within 2 years the entire design "vanished" since red was the only ink I used on that one.
I did a whole design on a pal's shoulderblade in highschool which was a pair of long alien hands holding a human baby. Wish I had a pic of it, since I wasn't doing it on myself (bad angle to work from even with a mirror) it came out really good.
I never understood the reason people like tatoos. Personally I hate having ink on my hands. Though in 6th grade I wasn't paying attention and walk into a beam. I was holding a pencil point to my hand and now 3 years later I have a gray dot in my hand. Also how to tatoos stay in you skin? Why doesn't your body remove it or shed it.
I don't know where the line is drawn between self-expression and self-abuse, but DIY tatoo can't be far away. At least it's a smiley face; that should help avoid calls for physchiatric intervention.

hows that self abuse
That doesnt make sense, a tattoos a tattoo no matter how you do it, I'm doing the most primative way of doing it besides cutting my self and pouring ink in, India Ink is entierly non toxic if it is REAL india ink. If I didnt have India Ink I could use Ash or Berries
Im CRAZY cause i did something I wanted to so what If I had put a >.< face it would mean im crazy? Im not even done, im going to get some color and make it a walmart smiley face
