Tattooing a Disc

Having done a couple dyes myself and stopped because of the mess and time that it took I was wondering if basically you could tattoo a disc? I mean all your doing is saturnine the disc with dye when you dip it. What's stopping someone from injecting the dye via a tattooing needle? Anyone care to chime in or give it a go?

I'm not sure stabbing plastic hundreds/thousands of times repeatedly would do much in terms of wonders for the integrity/durability of the disc.

Then again, I've shot champion plastic discs before and was shocked when they didn't explode.

Would the needle be small enough though not to harm the disc?

Interesting idea, give it a shot if you have the tattoo equipment already.

Though if you are doing this because of the time involved, I'm not sure how much faster it would really end up being. Then again, I don't have any tats.

It would not work as a tattoo places ink into the dermis where it stays. It also causes multiple puncture marks to the area. If you watch new people tattoo fruits like oranges or watermelon you can see the damage to the fruit from being punctured. It would be worse in the discs case because every jab would dull the packing of needles.

But try it if ya can and post results ^_^ I'd be interested in seeing what would happen

i would think this to be obvious. I don't have the equipment unfortunately but if someone on this forum does I would love to see the results.
