A Sketchbook Full of Synthetic Skin Lets Tattoo Artists Safely Doodle

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it's still around, but there used to be a company that made products out of human skin. Belts, shoes, etc.

Apparently, because our skin has such small pores, it makes the most amazing leather. Basically, you agree to donate your skin when you die, and your family recieves payment after the skin is delivered.

I saw something recently about full body tattoos fetching several hundred thousand in life when agreeing to hand over the skin apon death. I'm sure there is more to the tracking of the body but.....cool

So this just reminds me of Buffalo Bill from Silence of The Lambs. Sans tucking...

Instead of a woman suit, let's make a coat of @Graeme's back. Sorry Graeme, you look like my size ;-)

@BrianH, excellent observational skills. Dat crack!

Come on, man. At least let me finish my back before you make plans to turn me into a trenchcoat.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
