Wash your hands with hot water and soap. Dry with a clean towel. Sterilize the sewing needle by washing it in very hot water with soap, and then cleaning it off with rubbing alcohol. Another way to sterilize a needle is to heat it with a lighter, or place it in boiling water. Put on a pair of new, sterile gloves.

Tattooing the Skin
Choose a location to place the tattoo. Be aware of veins and other very sensitive areas, and find a spot on your body that is easy to reach and safe to tattoo.

Disinfect your skin with soap and water, as well as an antiseptic, such as Iodine.

Draw out the lines of your tattoo, if necessary, using a ball point pen.

Wrap white sewing thread around the needle. Start at the top and wind around to the bottom. Repeat this a couple of times from the bottom to the top. Your goal is to get the thread thick and tight around the needle so that the India Ink will soak into the thread, leaving you with a good supply of ink while you tattoo yourself.

Dip the needle with the thread into the India Ink, and let the ink soak up the needle.

Tattoo over the outline or in whatever manner you choose. You will need to make sharp and fast poking motions so that the ink will go into the skin, and to keep continuous lines. Repeat as necessary.
