The designs requested were the retro heart with a ribbon across it and the word mum – as a homage to the original mother scoby – that the offspring’s are always connected to the original mother. Scales were the second choice - to pay tribute to ancient tattoos - but also as an armour. The final tattoo was to be Gallifreyan for Lady as a reference to Lady Cassandra in Dr Who and the world end.
Sadly the scoby was allowed to dry to the point of being a very aged wrinkly skin with a leather quality - so again not suitable for tattooing.
I tried to reproduce a tattoo with a pen – but the scoby reacted to the pen and blocked the ink – so in the end a brush and ink gave a successful result.
The idea was to have tattoo tags to support the TXT tags,Braille tags , LCD tags,, Coded tags etc made so far. With the end result being a series of selfies taken wearing the different tags and # back to my blog .
