Based on Homemade Tattoo Gun by Kizzle
Me and my boyfriend made this tattoo gun out of a crest spinbrush, mechanical pencil parts, capri sun straw, and sewing needle.

Homemade tattoos fade as you are not trained in the skill and technique needed, it's not as easy as just drawing something on your skin. You need to know what your doing, what layer of skin you need to penetrate, how to not chew up the skin etc!! I strongly urge you don't tattoo yourself, as much as one is tempting really how tempting is blood poisoning? Or a staph infection or even better and std. Once again professional tattooist are trained in this field, with sterilisation, ohs, skin penetration, airborne and blood Bourne diseases etc, ppl say this will save them money but really how much is your life worth? Think about it ppl

It's because the sewing needle is thinner than a normal tattoo needle

Um... You may not be going deep enough in your skin, but I don't recommend making DIY tattoos at all!
