Got hit by a car earlier, luckily this was the only damage, but note to the world, don’t overtake a cyclist and immediately turn left(especially if you’re still on their outside!).

Prison tattoos without the prison time. DIY or die. Stick and Poke tattoo tutorial brought to you by The Annachrist. Yes, it hurts. Including photos of three I did to myself and one on my brother.

As someone who trained as a tattoo artist (before having to give it up due to disability) let me tell you exactly why this is a spectacularly bad idea. 

First off, you could permanently damage somebody’s skin. You don’t know what you’re doing, and no matter how safe you think you’re being with your rubbing alcohol and your gloves, you’re not. Tattoo artists go through a lot of training about blood borne pathogens and how to prevent transferring them to others, and they pay a lot of money to make sure used needles are properly disposed of. They also spend a minimum of two years as an apprentice before they’re let loose on human skin. You think a quick tutorial on Tumblr is going to give you the equivalent of that sort of training?

How are you going to dispose of that needle you use? Drop it in the trash, where some sanitation worker could end up getting needle stick? You don’t know what diseases your friend could have, and I bet you’ve no idea how long certain diseases that are carried by blood and plasma can survive outside the body.

Also, alcohol thins the blood. Your friend will end up bleeding excessively, which will make it harder to tattoo them, and will push the ink out, making it not only take longer but it will also result in uneven ink distribution in the finished piece.

Best case scenario, you end up with a home made dot work tattoo made of blobby lines. Worst case scenario, you could end up with blown out ink, an infection, an allergic reaction to the ink (yes, that can happen!), badly damaged skin, and possibly a ruined friendship. In a lot of states and countries, you’re breaking the law by giving someone a tattoo if you’re not licensed.

Do the sensible thing. Go to a professional, pay for their knowledge and expertise, respect yourself and your friends enough to know this isn’t a good idea, and don’t do this just because you saw a tutorial and thought it was cute. 

Reblogging for the above comment.
