How To Tattoo A Banana!

Travelling company Banana Ink visit events all over the world so you can discover what it's like to use a tattoo machine.

Ever tattooed human skin? Unless you're a tattooist, the answer is probably (and hopefully)... no. 

Well, now you can see what it's like (kind of) by trying your hand at inking something close to human skin (kind of)...a banana!

Banana Ink gives people at tattoo conventions the chance to use a tattoo machine.

Ran by Polish tattoo lover Sasky, the project has been visiting conventions in 2010. You can visit their stall and be taught, step-by-step, how to tattoo on a banana using a professional machine. 

You'll also be educated about hygiene procedures - the project's aim isn't to create a new generation of DIY tattooers but to give people a better understanding of what is involved when they visit their tattooists for new ink.

Would you have a go?!
