Use DIY tattoos guns at your own risk, and if you decide to use them at the house, be mindful of any local regulations against tattooing people. However, it’s indeed possible to construct your personal tattoo gun in a short amount of time. Here are some tips that how to make a prison tattoo gun.
What you’ll need for a DIY Tattoo Gun: Option 1
- 11-gauge guitar string
- Bic automatic pencil with complete eraser
- Sharp knife or razor
- A tiny screw that really is longer than half the size of the eraser
- Pliers for folding the guitar wire
- Scotch tape
How to Go About It
First and foremost, do your homework. Separate the eraser first from the mechanical pencil as well as the head of a Spin Brush. Cut the eraser into two horizontally (not along the width of the eraser) with the razor or small knife, then use a screwdriver to drill a hole through the center of one side.
Separate the end of the pencil from the largest component of the barrel by twisting it. With the pliers, bend the end of the stringed instrument at a 90-degree angle for about 2-3 inches. Slide it through the gap you formed in the eraser’s half and secure it with string’s bend.
With your finger or thumb, press the eraser against the steel rod of the toothbrush, letting the guitar chord hang free. Thread the wire through the mechanical pencil’s plastic tip and duct tape the end to the toothbrush. Cut a string at such an angle to make it sharp enough to accomplish its function, making sure it’s little enough to fit inside of the pencil point when on.
What you’ll need for a Handmade Tattoo Machine: Option 2
- Bic pens
- Engine (out of a Walkman, recording device, etc.)
- Small carabineer
- 10 stitching needles
- Warm glue pistol
- Extremely thin, elastic wire, such as inside a set of headphones
- Button with 4 holes
How to Go about it
Trim the pen’s tip to around 3 inches. Remove the cap’s closed-end as well. Warm the clip’s plastic with a candle flame until it becomes flexible, and then bend the pen’s clip into an L shape, reaching out at a 90-degree angle from the cap. Fold the material back up to a 90-degree angle about halfway out, forming an L shape. After the first curve, wait for the plastic to harden before moving on to the next.
Rotate the lengthier tip of the pen above the flickering flame to melt it slowly. Push the end out softly and carefully, sculpting into a narrower, shorter tube. Remove around 2 inches of the shorter tube and insert the broader tip into the hole in which the pen’s tip used to emerge from the preceding three-inch section of the pen. Attach the cap to another end of 3 pen pieces with the L-shape straight upward.
Position the motor on the L and hold it vertically and over top of the pen. Make sure the motor’s center is aligned with the opening in the pen’s top. Glue it to the wall.
Spread out your paperclip as straight as necessary and heat it over the burning candle by grasping each end with pliers and pressing outward to expand it out. After that, put three needles together and so the points form a circle. Wrap the needles with a very piece of wire to keep them in place. Solder the paperclip towards the needles and then solder them together. Bend the top centimeter of a paperclip at a 90 ° angle using the pliers.
Insert the needles through the L-shaped clip in the cap and into the barrel to decide how small to trim your needle. Put the smaller bent portion through a hole inside a small button and then use the heated glue gun to join one of the button’s bottom holes to the center of the motor once it’s been cut. When the pistol is turned on, tie a rubber band all-around engine and button to maintain them stable.
Connect the motor to your power supply then you’re ready to experiment with your own tattoo gun.
