Tattoo a banana

Got a banana?  Got a safety pin?  Great.  
Now you can tattoo a banana.

 Materials:
- banana
- safety pin
- pencil
- refrigerator

Directions: 
1.  Use a pencil to sketch a design on a banana.  (If you don't feel comfortable sketching straight on the banana, you can sketch your design on a piece of paper first.  Then, tape your design to the banana to guide your poking.)

2.  Use your safety pin to poke holes in the banana.  Watch your tiny dots turn black.

3.  Place the banana in the fridge for a couple of hours.  Pull it out to reveal a new tattooed banana.

4.  Place the banana in your kid's lunch box.... or sneak it back into the pile of bananas at the grocery store to surprise shoppers.

Happy tattooing!

(I first spotted this idea on the excellent How About Orange blog.)

    1. Thanks MB... now if only this was a marketable skill... I wonder if anyone at the grocery store would hire me to tattoo their bananas?

  4. I never would have thought to tattoo a banana. That is a very creative and fun idea. I wonder what other fruits can be tattooed. The lettering on the banana came out perfect! Thanks for the awesome idea.

  6. So cute! I actually helped my sister build a tattoo machine from a mechanical toothbrush last fall for a science project. She tattooed all the produce in our house for a month!

  7. I must express appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this type of circumstance. Right after exploring throughout the the net and getting things which were not beneficial, I figured my entire life was done. Living minus the strategies to the issues you have fixed all through your entire review is a serious case, and the kind that would have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t discovered the blog. Your actual training and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. I can also at this point relish my future. Thank you very much for your reliable and amazing guide. I will not be reluctant to propose the blog to any person who needs and wants counselling on this matter. his comment is here
