If skydiving wasn’t terrifying enough, someone had to go and introduce tattooing into it too.
A daredevil artist INK-credibly completed a tattoo while Skydiving. While freefalling to the ground at more than 120mph, Shannon Claydon managed to ink the word ‘AHHH’ on a fellow diver.
The tattoo artist at Fountainhead Tattoos in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, was held by other skydivers as he carefully spelt the letters out on Nadine Elaine’s wrist.
Using a portable tattoo gun, Shannon kept an amazingly steady hand to complete the four-letter word in less than 30 seconds. Having drawn an outline before jumping, the adrenaline junkie pair pulled their parachute cords as soon as the final ‘H’ was finished before landing back at Edmonton Skydive.
Wearing a Go-Pro attached to his head, Shan shakily begins his work of art on his victim’s wrist as the two begins to freefall to earth.
The already slightly stomach churning ordeal isn’t helped by the fact you can clearly see the ground as it rushes up beneath them.
It’s unclear if Claydon actually finished the entire tat in the air, but even if he didn’t it’s still a pretty amazing that the “Ahhh” didn’t come out as, you know, “R&h?y7.”
To Shan’s credit, the end result isn’t all that bad but it still begs the question – why?
