 I would imagine that healing a missing fingernail isn’t the easiest thing in the world, so the fact that more ink didn’t fall out of this is pretty neat. I can clearly tell what it is, and I wonder if it will hold up as well (or better) than a conventional tattoo.

  1. never seen a tattoo there, that’s really neat! though i can’t imagine now much that would hurt.

  2. That seems so painful but so awesome :) hope it stays well for a long time , can’t imagine someone looking forward to getting a touch up done on that place to be honest.

  3. My husband Jason Angst tattooed fellow tattooer Nathan Mould’s fingernail. They didn’t rip off a nail but instead drilled right threw it. You can see a picture on instagram on nathan’s page. @nathanmouldtattoo
