This is similar to the kind that prison inmates make.”Link. Oh…Don’t build this, unless you tattoo MAKE on your arm or something, thanks.

    It would be less insulting to call your mother a whore than to call a machine of art, a gun.

    Congrats – another posting so stupidly dangerous that it shouldn’t have made it past the common sense meters and onto the blog. Right up there with the razor blade throwing stars.

    i think it’s ok to post humor, and that’s what this is.

    the razor blade throwing stars required a welder, so far the death toll has been at a steady zero – people are smart and responsible – not sure i’d like to turn make in to a nanny-nation style blog :(

    What the hell is wrong with the guy using a little ingenuity to create something that I’m sure you don’t have the intelligence to come up with! Believe me, in the hands of a talented artist even these homemade Tattoo Guns can make works of Art. Grow up and stop Bitchin’ my man, this is America you know!!!

    Brilliant! The person advocating ingenuity can’t figure out how to post a comment!! A “talented artist”, tattoo artist anyway, would never in a million years use this “gun”!

  17. Tattoo Artist says:

    I can’t believe people seriously trust that hunk o’ crap to make tattoos on their skin.

  18. Tattoo Artist says:

    Dude. I’m 14, and I’m probably smarter than you are… so shut the f*** up about how “our youth iz so stupid now days.” And don’t forget to work on your grammar and spelling.
