Tattoo Artist Removes Needle From His Insides 40 Years Later

If you're a do-it-yourself tattoo artist, you must accept the fact that you're going to lose a needle or two inside your body.

At least, that was the case for Ulf Bergstrom who, in the 1970s, lost a needle in his arm. A few days ago -- 40 years after the incident -- Bergstrom found and removed the needle. From his toe.

"I completely forgot about it," Bergstrom said, according to Noran. "It's been in my body for 40 years. The only question is which route it has taken, that is something I would like to know." Full story here.
