When you’re getting a tattoo yourself, you may want to zone out or focus on something – anything – else to distract you from the pain. The last thing you’d probably do is stare at the needle itself as it plunges through your skin at speeds faster than the eye can really track.
That’s why these GIFs of tattooing in slow-motion are quite awesome to check out. Whether or not you like ink on yourself or body-art on others, these GIFs are still super cool.
Do you find them fascinating, intriguing, or do they make you squirm?
