Day 3 Stick-n-Poke Tattoo Flash from Rosie!

Well if it isn’t Saturday, the PERFECT day to peruse tattoo art for your next body decor option. Rosie has been doing lots of stick and poke tattooing over the last year, and if you don’t know what that is, I shall elaborate.

Stick-and-poke tattoos are a form of non-electric tattooing—that is to say, there’s no tattoo machine used. Instead, ink is applied to the skin by hand by attaching a needle to a rod-like contraption, much like a pencil and thread (professionals use a tattoo-grade needle) to create an analog tattoo machine.

Once the needle is secure, the design is created by dipping it into ink and then poking it into the skin dot by dot. he single needle and ink process dates back as far as ancient Egypt as mummies were found to have intricate tattoos on their arms, shoulders, and abdomen.

Thus, today for Gothtober Day 3 we have a BUNCH of wonderful seasonal selections of Halloween flash art from Rosie, who is a stick and poke enthusiast extraordinaire. Peruse them and perhaps consider decorating your epidermis with one or two of them today!
