Tattoo artist tries the ‘Bird Box Challenge’ while working on a client and it goes horribly wrong

A tattoo artist in Brazil filmed himself working on a client while blindfolded, in his own version of the ‘Bird Box Challenge.’

The Bird Box Challenge stems from the Netflix original movie called Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, where her character is forced to make a dangerous journey with her children while blindfolded, so as not to lay eyes on a monster that if seen, causes people to kill themselves.

After the movie was released on December 13, people started filming themselves doing all kinds of things while blindfolded, often with disastrous results. 

The video of the man tattooing a customer without the use of his sight was recorded on Saturday in Blumenau, Santa Catarina, and the results were exactly as one might expect.

The video starts with a man laying on his back and look at the camera as a tattoo artist stands poised with a tattoo gun in hand, blind fold already on.

His task is to tattoo a face on the man, which has already been outlined on the client’s right pec.

The artist makes contact with the man’s skin briefly, before stepping away and re-centering himself, and coming back for another stab at it.

When the artist returns to get going again, the client tries to help guide his hand, and lets out a nervous laugh. 

Both men then start chuckling uncontrollably, to the point that they have to take another break before they can attempt to get started again.

Finally, the artist composes himself, and the man guides his hand again to get started.

The artist puts ink into his skin in the two spots where the eyes are stenciled, but that’s as far as he gets before another fit of giggles takes over.

The movement is enough to shift the artist off-center from the stencil enough that he then starts placing ink in the center of the man’s chest, no where near where the guiding lines are. 

After stopping to dab up the extra ink on top of the skin, the artist manages to realign himself and start working on the area that appears to be the mouth on the drawing. 

Eventually, it it seems the artist has given up on trying to create anything that looks like the stencil on the man's chest, appearing to be scribbling any which way, as he  attempts something that looks like it might have been meant to be a beard

From there, it seems the artist has given up on trying to create anything that looks like the stencil on the man’s chest.

He appears to be scribbling any which way, as he covers the part of the drawing where the hat is and attempts something that looks like it might have been meant to be a beard. 

Before the session is over, the man on the table has to guide the artist’s hand once more to wipe off excess ink.

The man on the table can only laugh as he compares the result to the planned image.

With any luck, the few lines will make for an easy cover-up job, once the artist ditches the blindfold for good.
