Why I Tattooed myself

Why I Tattooed myself


Tomorrow I’m going to tattoo myself. I had just seen the ink get drawn up through
the capillary movement, which I had never seen before, but if you watch closely you
can just follow it rising. So then I took the plunge and the needle went
in. With the seven round liner you create seven
little holes and as the needle gets dragged back out, the ink that was stored right in
the middle, floods into the holes and that’s actually what causes the tattoo to set. Now I went with a design of this little guy
that I like to animate when I’m doing tests and because I’m so scribbly anyway; I knew
that my unprofessionalism would be ok Because I let it roll with the crappiness of my skill
with the tattoo needle. As I kept doing this it was weird because
the whole history was rushing through my mind. This isn’t just me sat here sticking a needle
in my arm like an idiot. This was a technique that’s been done for
thousands and thousands of years. The oldest tattoo’s we’ve found are over 5000
years old from a man that was frozen in a glacier. That’s insane! The small marks he had were probably done
by cutting his skin and then rubbing in a charcoal mix; I’m not doing something that
much different now. Tribes around the world have marked their
bodies in so many different ways, the Māori’s have these swirling patterns on their face. In parts of Africa people practice scarification. The japanese would mark their prisoners, so
they embraced it. The YakuZa came up with whole body suits,
just to be like “So what? If I’m going to have it, it’s gonna
look good.” Sailors would have anchors to say that they
had gone across the Atlantic Ocean and they get a Swallow tattooed on them for every 5000
nautical miles they had sailed. This is something that has been a part of
us for a long time. I’m glad I’ve done what I’ve done because
even know I’ve only got this scribble on my arm it feels kind of more than that; but
next time I’ll probably get it done by a professional. Thanks for watching, I really appreciate it
We’ve been working on this for a couple of months, not just this video, but this new
format. We can make new videos about once every 2
weeks and I’m starting a podcast that’s going to be going up weekly, I’ll put a link in
the description when we start that. So before you wonder, that tattoo it’s all
fine, we filmed about two weeks ago there’s no infection, no nothing, it’s great. As far as great goes, for a Stick n’ Poke
tattoo from someone with a kak-hand. So if you liked it, chuck us a like, why not
subscribe and chuck a comment below cos I do read them all. I’ve been Matt Nomme

  6. I found you via your potato video and now I’m binge watching your video’s they are really great and I love your content

  7. Why A chanel talking about Drama , its more popular than this . This is gold , not for your drama meter or your funny , its a Gold for your mind , to your self . to relax and chill… its like to talk without any words . , if i have a chanse to only say one thing to you … Proud of you

  8. personally I'm a purist when it comes to tattoos and i hate stick and pokes because i firmly believe you should get it done by a professional but your tattoo is a good exception. It's the static looking lines and how it is not completely darkened that add to it, especially because you use that character all the time just a quick drawing before your vids. I like it

  9. please post another video soon! just found you today but I love the thought experiments and your insight. Very different from typical YouTube content

  10. I seriously cant believe you don't have 10M subscribers man. They way this video flowed was awesome. Keep doing youtube, you're gonna be big.

  11. When you blow up and have a million subscribers I'm gonna be commenting on your videos with ''Like if you knew him before he got massive'' . Your storytelling is so cool man! Keep it up!

  12. u have blown up so much. cant even believe to think you had only 100 subscribers 4 months ago!!!!!!!!!!!!! keep going further and u will be an internet fame

  13. you said its 2 weeks ago, i seriously just wonder why u are wearing a glove in the end still tho when you say that? And i think we all would've liked to see the healed tattoo 🙂 I like your videos, keep it up

  14. Stop trying to be so deep and cool like a lot of filmmakers and other people on youtube who try to be filmmakers do. It's just kind of offputting. Your previous video about the potatoes got so many views and kept people watching because you were real. I tried to watch your film and got about 40 minutes in just because it felt super pretentious and weird for things to be so unclear with very little happening. Just talk to people like people. And keep making stuff. You clearly have perseverance if you make an hour and a half long music video, so just don't be so fake.

  15. Tattoos are meaningful to me because they’re seen as permanent, a constant on in your life as you grow up and life changes. And as life changes, the meaning of the tattoo can change too

  16. very addictive to watch, wish there was a bit more of the actual tattooing, maybe make some additions to join the lonely guy? :'D

  17. The way you thought so deeply of something that most people would find just simple is honestly just amazing. It is so calming.

  18. I've always liked the idea of having my first tattoo be something that I have hand drawn or done myself. Cool video by the way, I really like the way you edit your content 🙂

  19. Lately your videos are on my recommended. Really good works on that tattoo! Need more videos maybe vlogs?

  20. it's video's like this witch have inspired me to get back in to college to do film and photography also I feel like your going to become massive on this platform and I hope you do 🙂

  21. Damn man…. just discovered your channel . you give me the chills. your style and way to be and think and the editing its just so comforting and relaxing. great job man. keep it up.

  22. This is amazing, finding your channel was like finding a gem on a beach; unlikely to happen, but enlightening when it does.

  23. Watched your stream today , I have to admit im a little dissapointed I did not watch other videos after the potato one. They cinematics are beautiful and the video informative in an artistic way. Go get it lad!
