Advice on how to make a homemade tattoo gun and ink?
ANSWER #6 of 16

My goodness! You people have no clue about tattoos. I've read a few good things on her, but still, there is a lot left untouched. basic chemistry says using anything other than ETHYL alcohol (like that found in vodka) makes the skin more permeable. meaning it's easier for anything to get through, including diseases. Have any of you taken a blood born pathogens class, had a tattoo apprenticeship, or even worked with anything that involves intelligence? tattooing is not only an art, but also a science. So at the very least don't just make your own ink, it costs $7.00 on ebay for professional black tattoo ink. Get yourself some of that, and don't fuck yourself up. Good luck.

First burn the pin in a fire then boil it in a pan of boiling water to steralise. It takes time but if you do a good job it will look just like a real one, obv the longer you take the better the result. Good luck anyone deciding to do their own.
