    Hey everyone. I have a question and it may sound kind of dumb. But would I be able to buy one tattoo gone and use it on my rabbits and my nigerians?

    I've tattooed a lot of goats, but I am not at all sure what a tattoo gun is. I used pliers made for the purpose and you can get a size that would work on both goats and rabbits. For starters you might check out caprinesupply.com. Also Nasco. I don't know what Nasco's web address is but you ought to easily be able find it online. They have a good selection of livestock supplies, but bear in mind they have several catalogs and some of them have nothing whatever to do with livestock or agriculture.

    it is exactly what it sounds like except no ammunition and nothing get flung out as a projectile, it gathers the ink in the tip and when you take the needles on the tip across the skin it will deposit the ink into the skin
