"Ah...the only true temporary tattoo. Yes, you can [tattoo fingernails]. I've done it. Of course you don't really go very far into the nail - just enough to scratch the surface. The most that is felt is a vibration, so it's also the only truly painless tattoo. Once the artist is done, you rinse the nail and paint over it with a clear layer of nail polish and you're good to go. No pain. No healing time. As time goes on it will work it's way to the end of the nail and bye-bye tattoo. :) " Stacey then included the picture here of this fingernail tattooed with a smiley face.
