TATTOO AND BIKER ART A jailhouse tattoo gun is constructed of found objects. For the needle, a guitar string or paper clip is sharpened to a fine point on a rock or cinderblock. It is run through the hollow shaft of a ball point pen and the tip protrudes slightly from the writing end. The string is attached to a small motor, usually from a walkman, and hooked up to batteries. The apparatus is fortified for stability by being taped to popsicle sticks or a plastic eating utensil. The pen remains stable while the point jumps.
A man in a muscle shirt displays a sleeve of tattoos in a collage style, including a self-portrait, death heads, and the prison watchtower . A dark-haired beauty, located in a more private part of his body, looks out at us.
