When you hit your fingernail really hard, sometimes the
nail will discolour and youll have a small white patch on
the nail. If you gash the nailbed with a chisel, as happened
to me a couple of weeks ago, youll have a small (or large)
black mark on the nail from bleeding under the nail. These
marks travel down the nail as the nail grows, eventually
getting to the end when you will cut them off with nail
So, this idea is for a tattoo machine that can
systematically and accurately injure the fingernail to
create a design (of the fingernail-owners choosing) on the
fingernail made up of black and white marks. This will last
a few weeks as the nail grows out.

||Thats just engraving though - it doesnt have the
element of unnecessary pain common to this idea
and to tattooing
