Canida and I were at the Maker Faire this weekend in Austin meeting fans of the site and introducing it to folks who have never heard of us before. It was a blast and we had a great time showing off the Mouse Mouse, Bacon Soap, and other projects that we’ve made instructables about.
On Sunday a guy stopped by the booth and showed off his tattoo of a Space Invader alien. He said that he used an Instructable to do the design and that he wanted to thank us for it. The crazy things is, that Instructable happened to be the very first Instructable I did! It’s my 3D Effect Stencil Instructable and he used Sketchup with an isometric view to get he design he wanted.
I’ve seen people use my Instructables before, but this takes the cake. That was easily my favorite moment from the Maker Faire. I helped a guy get ink on his skin. Damn.
