Things You’ll Need:
* A pencil
* White Thread
* A needle
* Calligraphy ink
* Paper Towel
* A pen
* Good Hating music such as "Chop Suey"-System of a Down, "Dualty"-Slipknot, "Violent Pornography"-System of a Down...none of that "Just a Friend"-Mario stuff. haha
* Oh yeah, another important thing you'll need...time and patience...don't do it when you have a limited amount of time...do remember..this is permanent.
So, first and foremost...SANITIZE your needle...remember how piercing yourself has a high infection rate? Yeah...times that infection rate by the hundreds of stabs/pokes you are about to do to yourself and there's the infection rate for your tattoo. Not to scare you though...just...to be on the safe side...I'm over-exaggerating a bit...a bit...alright fine...A LOT but still..don't be lazy..just give your body some respect and do it right.
Alright, so...you have your VERY CLEAN, SANITIZED needle...now, you will take your pencil...make the eraser side point up, take the needle and have the pointy end face up, then...take the thread and start binding the needle and the eraser side of the pencil together, making sure the pointy end of the needle is the one sticking out...the needles pointy end sticking about one centimeter off of the pencil (eraser side).You want to make sure to take your time on this step since the more neatly you bind the two together, the closer you'll be to wrapping the thread as close to the point of the needle as humanly possible. And with that said, the closer you bind the thread to the needle point, the better because that way, you don't have to stab the needle in too hard to get the ink to go under the skin.
Alright, now it's time to get started. Lay down your tattoo weapon and grab a pen (preferably a black pen...no ballpoint pen)and sketch your design where you desire it...(oh yeah...I wouldn't do anything under the foot...especially not words..doesn't work out too well)..and once you have it the way you want it and have gotten rid of all of those other black drawings/spots on you, it is time to start the actual tattoo.
Now is the time to put in that aggressive, hating music...which will absorb the pain for you.haha. So, having your paper towel ready at hand, slowly start poking away making sure to take your time and try to follow the drawn on design as best as humanly possible. As you go, wipe the ink away and go over it all a few times until you feel you have finished (trust me, you'll know when that time is).
Go to your bathroom and put some medium temperatured water on it. Wipe away the excess ink and dab it dry. Put Antiseptic Ointment like Neosporin or something on it and put a band-aid on it. Then, go to bed and feel accomplished for having successfully tattooed yourself.
