What a sweet way to waste a very expensive tool!

we always threatened to do it w/ ours but never took the thought too seriously.

do you think you can get it deep enough to leave a mark forever? that post only has pictures of the fresh ones. i want to know what it looks like a month later

i would do it.....

i've been on the bridge of getting tatted up on my wrists..... then to sleeves......

i think you would need to set the power higher though... you need to get through most of the layers of skin for it to scar up..... the first few layers wont do much...

yea thats what i was thinking... and then maybe peel off any of the burnt flesh that you can and dump some ink from one of your micro pens on it and rub it in.

i wonder if ink is ink......

a good friend of mine from college got a XXX tatted on the top of his hand with glow in the dark ink...or black light ink...hmmm...

I have a lot of traditional branding and as a former body artist I really wouldn't recommend getting it done with a laser cutter. I'm not an expert on those cutters but if the"focal length" (?) is off, it's not going to do a good job. As body parts aren't flat, this is unavoidable. The tool has to follow the contours of the skin/body for an even result.
