I don’t care how secure or safe a jar full of bedbugs might be. I’m not going anywhere near it. It’s not that I’m squeamish or afraid of a little pain: I’ve got a bunch of tattoos . I just don’t want to risk carrying any of those little monsters into my home. I’ve heard way too many horror stories.
Don’t let the bed bugs bite, is what we’ve always been told. But Matt Camper, an urban entomologist at Colorado State University, is doing the exact opposite. He’s gone and created a unique ‘bedbug tattoo gun’ – made of a jar, some wire mesh and thousands of hungry bed bugs. You simply invert the jar onto your skin, let the bed bugs bite, and later admire the pink, temporary tattoo they leave behind.
