WARNING: These tattoos, although light, are PERMANENT! Think about what you want on your body before you go through with it. ALSO it does hurt, and depending on your pain level it may hurt too much. Test without ink first to see if you want to spend 30 minutes poking your skin to get some cool stuff.
Lets get on with it.
Step 1: Suppiles
1 sewing needle of medium size
1 jar lid
A bottle of black ink, this instructable uses higgins waterproof ink
A stove or other fire producing device.
Anti bacterial soap
Step 2: Disinfecting Your Skin
Step 3: Drawing Your Image
Step 4: Disinfecting Needle and Prep
Then use fire to disinfect the needle, the once the needle cools wrap the needle with string only leaving a bit of the needle at the tip exposed.
Step 5: Inking The Needle
Step 6: Start Pokin'
Yes, it will hurt, yes it will take a while.
Poke into the skin just enough where the dermis sticks a little to the needle. It may take a few tries to get it right. Pull the skin tight to make it easier and follow the lines your drew in the last step.
Keep some paper towels on hand in case you start bleeding.
Step 7: Pokin' Part 2
The area you poke will become a bit raised and swell, this is normal.
Step 8: Aftercare
After a few hours you should be able to take the saran wrap off and use regular unscented lotion for a few days. Keep the tattoo out of sunlight for the first 2 days as well.
