Yowch! Under the fingernail tattoo!

It probably won’t last (I’ll post a follow-up if there’s something to post), but this writer’s fingernail got torn off at work, so they thought “why not get a skull tattoo” (done by Jake at Alkali Tattoo and Body Piercings in Janesville, WI) and see what would happen… Yes, it hurt a lot.

  1. Oh god, I remember having a nail ripped off when I was a kid and I can’t imagine how much getting a tattoo there would hurt.

  2. HOLY HELL that is one hell of a painfully neat idea. . . id NEVER do it but props to that guy!

  3. BAHHHH i had a similar idea but im actually going to remove part of my nails on purpose. pleaseeee do a follow up on this so we can know if they heal/show!

  4. I’m glad he put a coin in the picture for scale otherwise nobody would’ve known how big his finger is… ;-)

  5. This is the only thing I’ve ever seen on BME that has actually freaked me out. Ouch!

  6. Wow, just the thought of having that done gives me the heebie jeebies. Props to the person who can actually handle that, I sure couldn’t.

  7. I’ve seen split penises and stretched out VCHs, but this actually made me cringe. *shudder*

  8. I once had my whole big toenail ripped off by accident, hurt like hell, but kinda wish I had thought of this…

  9. eeeek.. that looks like pain! I used to tattoo my big toenail every few months, was the easiest tattoo ever, no pain at all then it would grow out and you could put something new on… i think this under the nail thing is just crazy… good luck with that though, really… lol
