Cat owner get a literal part of her cat tattooed on her body with a special ink synthesized from its fur.

New tattoo

German Model Kathrin Toelle, 38, goes by the modeling name of Makani Terror, recently got a new tattoo on her leg using ink made out of her 10-year-old cat Gizmo's fur which she collected after it fell out while brushing him.

Skin46 ink

Makani told The Sun:

"I love my own pets like they were my own children. They are the most important family members in my life and I will miss them more than anything else when they would pass away."

She added:

"A tattoo artist friend told me about the Skin46 ink and I thought I need to do this, At first, it sounds weird but after all explanations, I was just in love with this idea to be connected to my cats forever."

Organic carbon extract

She was the first person to ever try the bizarrely innovative process offered by Skin46 in Switzerland. The tattoo service uses medically clean organic carbon extract from either animal or human hair and then mixed with regular tattoo ink.

Is this safe?

New tattoo method has raised a lot of questions about safety and risks but the process is perfectly safe and harmless.

5g of hair

She sent off 5g of hair to Skin46, then waited a few weeks to receive the finished product which was processed in a Swiss lab. A batch costs $720 which is what the service costs.

Andreas Wampl launched Skin46 ink company in 2015.

Andreas Wampl said:

"The idea of SKIN46 tattoo ink starts some seriously spirited conversations, Some think it's offensive, while a huge amount of tattoo lovers thinks it's an amazing concept...Tattooing needs this kind of fresh spirit."

Germany to California

To get the interesting tattoo Makani flew all the way out from Germany to California, she took her ink to Artistic Element Tattoo in Yucaipa, CA where she was tattooed by artist Roman Abrego.

She posted a photo of her tattoo on Instagram, her caption read:

"Already 1 year ago that I got my cat Gizmo under my skin. Thank you so much to my buddy Roman tattoos for tattooing my baby boy Gizmo with my custom made ink skin46ink and FusionInk! Skin46 is done out of medical clean carbon from human and animal hair!"

Emotional connection

The Skin46 website states:

"It’s common to have a tattoo of a loved one in so many different ways, shapes, and forms. There’s no limit to how a relationship‘s bonds can be celebrated in tattoo art. SKIN46 ink enables the next level of emotional connection between the person and the tattoo and takes ink one step deeper."
