TATTOO BUZZ VIDEOS
Before I got my first tattoo everyone kept telling me how very permanent it would be (because apparently that wasn't something I would have thought of at all) and I had been asked questions like "What if you can't get a job because of it?"
This lead me to ask, and to continue asking, why shouldn't a person be able to get a job because they have a tattoo? Or many tattoos? What scares the older generation that employs us that so much about a person with a little extra decor?
The answer is that there is no reason, it's just closed-mindedness. When people don't like something then they tend not to look at it and, well, this is just another way to not look at it.
That being said they still exist, they're still there, and they don't really directly affect anyone's life other than the person with tattoos.
Anyone who has ever been in a tattoo shop knows the sound of the tattoo machine buzzing away as it lays down line after line of ink. Behind the buzz is a tiny an electromagnetic circuit that plunges a needle into the skin 80-150 times per second. In a video from French tattoo artist GueT, you can see what’s making all that racket up close and in slow motion. You’ll probably be surprised how much the skin vibrates.
Most modern tattoo machines, like the one in this video, are of the coil variety. They use an electromagnetic circuit to move the needle up and down, but some machines now use rotary motors to drive the needle. All modern implements allow artists to control speed, depth, and force of application.
In the video you can see how little the needle has to puncture the skin — it’s just pushing the pigment down to the dermis where it will be trapped in fibroblasts indefinitely. Not all tattoo needles look like the one we see here. Others have the individual needles spread out in a brush configuration for shading and filling in shapes. Though, it seems that GueT is big on linework tattoos that replicate textures on the skin, which doesn’t call for much shading.
This tatoo video is a pretty mesmerizing three minutes with a cool soundtrack, and it seems to have been cut together in such a way that you’re seeing lots of the needle doing its thing, and none of the bloody mess that comes with it. So, don’t let squeamishness stop you from clicking.

Is getting a tattoo worth the money and hassle? It's up to you. Some people really enjoy their tattoos and keep them for life, whereas others might regret that they acted on impulse and didn't think enough about it before they got one. Getting a tattoo is a big deal, especially because they're designed to be permanent.
If you've thought about it and decided you want a tattoo, make sure you do a little detective work and find a clean, safe, and professional tattoo shop. Also, remember that getting and maintaining a tattoo involves some responsibility — after you leave the tattoo shop, it's up to you to protect and treat it to prevent infections or other complications.
Tattoos used to be done manually — that is, the tattoo artist would puncture the skin with a needle and inject the ink by hand. Though this process is still used in some parts of the world, most tattoo shops use a tattoo machine these days. A tattoo machine is a handheld electric instrument that uses a tube and needle system. On one end is a sterilized needle, which is attached to tubes that contain ink. A foot switch is used to turn on the machine, which moves the needle in and out while driving the ink about 1/16 inch or less (about 1 millimeter) into your skin.
Most tattoo artists know how deep to drive the needle into your skin, but not going deep enough will produce a ragged tattoo, and going too deep can cause bleeding and intense pain. Getting a tattoo can take about 15 minutes to several hours, depending on the size and design chosen.
If you're thinking about getting a tattoo, there is one very important thing you have to keep in mind — getting it done safely. Although it might look a whole lot cooler than a big scab, a new tattoo is also a wound. Like any other slice, scrape, puncture, cut, or penetration to your skin, a tattoo is at risk for infections and disease.
First, make sure you're up to date with your immunizations (especially hepatitis and tetanus shots) and plan where you'll get medical care if your tattoo becomes infected (signs of infection include excessive redness or tenderness around the tattoo, pus, or changes in your skin color around the tattoo).
If you have a medical problem such as heart disease, allergies, diabetes, skin disorders, a condition that affects your immune system, or a bleeding disorder — or if you are pregnant — ask your doctor if there are any special concerns you should have or precautions you should take beforehand. Also, if you're prone to getting keloids (an overgrowth of scar tissue in the area of the wound), it's probably best to avoid getting a tattoo altogether.
