How A Tattoo Gun Is Made In Prison

How A Tattoo Gun Is Made In Prison

Video: People in prison are so damn resourceful that they can turn a pen, a Walkman, a couple of paper clips, a few rubber bands and a set of batteries into a fully functional tattoo gun. The motor, battery pack and switch come from a Walkman that’s been torn apart, the ink obviously comes from the pen, the needle is made from the paper clip and the rubber bands hold it all together.

It’s a pretty brilliant way of hacking together a tattoo gun, if you ask me. Even after knowing all this, I’d probably fail in trying to find the necessary parts in the Walkman. Actually, I’d fail finding the Walkman.
