    To whomever uses this. I hope your enjoy the HEP C and MRSA that comes along with scratcher tattoos I know this site has allot of content and they can't always thin out the garbage but this should be common sense. If you are wanting a tattoo get it done buy an artist. Don't try to haggle with them about the price. You get what you pay for and a $50 is going to look like a $50 tattoo. So I leave you all with this image and hope it makes you think

    i would advise against using a guitar string as a needle. they simply arent sanitary, Ive gotten an infection twice from a high e string poking me, and going under my skin. use a sterilized needle.

    these wont be very good and they will fade but if your gonna do this DONT USE NORMAL PEN INK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THATS THE STUFF THAT KILLS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! use indian ink

    nice guns! hey upload your tattoos to when you have them done and taken a picutre!

    but the tattoos are permanent or temporarily, just like a hena tattoo?

    Nice simple idea. I made it and I have been tattooing fruit all day! cheers, Mspark 400

    Tattoo needles are really cheap-$1-$3 dollars on the internet. Just cut to size. Better than a quitar string, and has a better point.

    i need help with knowing how to put the eraser in and then after i tape it up i still the string wont go up or down

    i would not suggest heating the tape and wrapping it around all the way in case the needle thing messes up u can change it faster
