DIY • tattoo fund jar.
I've talked a bit about my tattoos, and I will be talking about them more over the next few weeks. I have a fairly large and elaborate tattoo planned as a birthday gift to myself, but since I'm not rich, I have to start saving for it a bit early. I have about 86 days until my birthday, and if my tattoo costs $400 (an over-exaggeration), that means I need to save about $4.65 per day. I decided to create this "Tattoo Fund" jar from an idea I got from Kyla Roma (see above). I think it'll be a kinda fun way to save my pennies. I've already thrown in twenty bucks and a penny I found on my front lawn, so I'm like half-way there, right? ;)
To make a similar jar: get a jar, some glue, and a print-out of whatever you'd like. I used washi tape and a sharpie to actually write "Tattoo Fund" over the flash of a Sailor Jerry ship. I was going to put the print-out on the inside of the jar, facing out, but it was too big, so i stuck it on the back facing into the jar. After I went crazy with the glue (how much fun is peeling dried glue off your fingers? seriously..), I put the jar in front of my fan for a few minutes and DONE. Let's save some money and get inked.
