I only started learning to use the tattoo machine today and that’s the third banana that fell victim to it. They told me to start with bananas, cause their skin is thick enough – plus they are cheap. Once I am comfortable with the device, I’ll move on to synthetic skin. So far the whole thing is shaking all the time, I have no clue how deep I should go, the ink is spilling and I must be careful to wipe it off (that’s why the banana is so dirty!). It feels like I’ll have to relearn all drawing from scratch. But that’s something I’ve always wanted to do, so I decided to take it – literally – into my own hands.
