Indy Voet’s specialty is hand poking tattoos on the roof of people’s mouths.
The Belgian tattoo artist is reputed for his work as an unconventional artist.
He has been doing roof of the mouth tattoos for about five years now.
Report says he has developed his own technique as well as a portfolio of tattoos that fit the unusual location.
He is a former body piercing artist with ten years of experience under his belt and wasn’t always a roof of the mouth tattoo artists.
He observed that he does not really use anything other than a needle and some dexterity, combined with the trust of his client.
Indy Voet added that using a tattoo machine would be too harsh on this sensitive location, plus there’s not a lot of space to maneuver.
He allays people’s fears and says that it is not as painful as it seems.
He claims that 90 percent of people describe these tattoos as being almost painless or at least and very easy to handle.
The other 10 percent complain mostly complain about jaw muscle ache, from keeping their mouth wide open for long periods of time.
The Belgian artist advises that: “healing is like any other mouth tattoo or piercing—don’t have anything too spicy, no strong liquor and be careful what you put in your mouth for a couple of days. Other than that, the natural resources of the mouth do the rest.”
Tattoo is largely unpopular in Africa as some religions belief it is a sin.
