Tattoo of Nothing (1991)
Dec 29th 1991, New York: tattooist Matthew Jankowski used needles empty of any ink to tattoo the mathematical equation “0 + 0 = 0” on GX Jupitter-Larsen's left arm. This was the second time GX did this! The first “Tattoo of Nothing” was performed in Amsterdam in 1982.
The thin lines of blood left behind by the empty needles would slowly fade over a few days till the tattoos completely disappeared.
