At home with a guitar string and sharpie ink, any tips?
>Enjoy working at mc D
What's it like working at (generic scumbag job)?
No seriously, nobody with common sense would do this. You're looking at 20-50 bucks at a tattoo shop. Are you really that poor? Because there's only one other reason I can think of that you wouldn't go to a tattoo parlor, you underage faggot.
50$ where do you get your tattoos?Fucking Tiffany's?
Any half-decent shop will get an apprentice to do this cheaper than said guitar string and ink. ~10$
And you can't get metal string in singles anymore, and the cheapest set of MXRs is like 7$. And even those are covered in a thin layer of nickel and/or chrome. Both toxic.
So yeah OP post result.
I have none. I aimed high on purpose. Even at 50$, I would still pay a professional, however. But then again, I'd never be retarded enough to permanently and intentionally scar my body. I earn over 10$ an hour, you see.
been awhile since the last 'bad idea tattoos' thread, tbf. Apropos, once knew a girl who worked McD's - show up 30 mins before they closed? she'd free-vend us industrial quantites of shit, like, mountains of it. That got old real quick as well.
>being in the trades is pretty cool
Yeah, inconsistent hours, slow times and impending layoffs, and the wear and tear on your one and only body.
Trades are GREAT!
Not everyone can get a real education.
Depends on your trade. My pipewelderbro is close to a millionaire and he's about forty years old. Pays cash for everything, has zero debt, and his farm is paid for too. His wife fits for him so they both make mad bank and only work about half of each year.
Fucker can TIG a cat's ass to a plate glass window, and when they are home he makes bank stretching and shortening big truck frames for agricultural, dump bed and equipment conversions.
Ever heard of a union?
Or wait how about this one not all trade jobs destroy your body? I mean seriously its like you think the only viable trade skill job is underwater wielding or some shit
>inconsistent hours, slow times and impending layoffs, and the wear and tear on your one and only body
>I'm a fucking retard that doesn't know what the good trades are.
Literally the only thing I have to worry about is to make sure I get a fullbody X-ray before I get stuck in an MRI machine.
I've been planning to do my own stick and poke tattoos. I'm waiting for my stencil paper to arrive Monday before I begin though.
As stated before; order ink and needles from Amazon. (pretty cheap)
You'll also want to be as sanitary as possible (Green Soap, disposable gloves, disposable razors, napkins and Aquaphor or A&D.)
I've been watching tutorials for about a week now and not once have I seen guitar strings or Sharpie ink mentioned. Just doesn't sound like a good idea.
guitar strings are quite popular for home tattoo's. It's pointless though as you can get a machine on ebay for next to nothing.
Tattooing yourself is fucking stupid though. Not only will it look like shit, but the risk of infection is high.
I did this poke and stick myself a few years ago and it looks like this, and that was with a needle, not guitar string. Just wait and get a pro bro.
But seriously this guy gets it
