The process of getting a tattoo can be a fascinating one. At first, the skin is bare followed by an outline and color the next. If you do a search on YouTube, you can find documentaries about tattoos or someone recording their experience getting one, which sometimes gives the feeling of visiting a doctor’s office.
I don’t recall ever seeing a video showing a close-up of the mechanics of the tattoo instrument. Or the ink being applied to the skin. It’s just too fast, but if the process were slowed down, it’s quite interesting.
If you were curious about the skin’s reaction to the tattoo’s tip, check out the video below of a tattoo in slow motion by artist GueT.
