Tattoos have gotten a reputation for being a fun way to express yourself, but when the tattooing process is slowed down, as in this slow motion tattoo video, we can see how violent and invasive the process really is. The skin is literally being stabbed thousands of times in order to deliver the ink under the dermis. When slowed down, we can see how difficult the canvas of skin is to work with, as it moves about in response to the motion of the tattoo machine. To put it in perspective, an artist might as well try to paint a curtain by repeatedly poking it with the tip of a paintbrush. Tough job. Kudos to all those tattoo artists out there. Keep up the good work guys and girls!
