'Tattoo Nightmares': Man Inked Himself With A Homemade Tattoo Gun While Drunk (VIDEO)

Ron learned a hard lesson when he was exploring the possibility of becoming a tattoo artist. He had to go to the team at "Tattoo Nightmares" to undo his own handiwork. It was back when he was in his late teens that he decided he wanted to be a tattoo artist, but lacking the proper equipment, he made his own.

He worked in his own bathroom, tattooing his inner thigh. Once he started inking himself, he said his adrenaline was pumping and he then started drinking.

"And the ink’s rejecting, ‘cuz you’re probably drunk at this point," tattoo artist Jasmine Rodriguez pointed out. Whatever happened, it was a mess.

Jasmine worked her magic, though, transforming his self-made disaster into a mechanical piston design that looks like it's tearing through Ron's skin. Should he decide to expand this look beyond his inner thigh, he should probably have a professional do it.
