Boys and girls of every age,
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange…
Well… it’s not really strange, just a pumpkin I carved with a medical scalpel.
Moving on, this is Halloween! Or it was, according to my Nightmare before Christmas lyrics.
So another Halloween has passed, and this year like every other year, I wanted to carve a pumpkin. So 2 days before Halloween I went out and got myself a pumpkin. As this was the first pumpkin I’ve ever carved, me being me, I wanted to do something out of the ordinary. It was clearly a spur of a moment decision with no prior planning considering I had no carving tools what so ever. So hey, I thought “Let’s improvise!”.
Below you can see the fruits of my labour. A design of a tattoo I found on google, adjusted so the appropriate holes could be removed without the whole thing falling apart.
I hope you like it; hopefully it may inspire you next year. I know I definitely want to try this again next Halloween.
Tools: Medical scalpel. Time: Under 2 hours.
