Allen’s Fingernail Bed Tattoo, Fresh and Healed

With Allen Falkner’s permission, following up on my own fingernail bed tattoo, here are a pair of photos of his similar torment tattoo done late last year both fresh and healed (tattooed by Mike Tidwell). It held surprisingly well, far better than I was predicting, although his advice is to put it in very solidly because some ink was lost… So now I’m thinking that before the nail grows over it I’ll definitely go back to Shane and ask him to hit it a second time to get it as solid as possible.

So, I’m quite thrilled that this is possible and wasn’t just recreational torture!

One Trackback/Pingback

    Is it possible to tattoo one’s fingernail beds?…

    Here you go! So the answer is yes and here is the best reference I can find.  None of the other photos show the tattoo post nail growth.  But there are more examples on this site.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
