Though it sounds like a new fad, teeth tattoos have actually been around for the last decade, Connecticut dentist Steven Landman told Complex.
In order to tattoo a tooth, a dentist takes an impression of the tooth that needs to be fitted with a crown, which is then sent to a lab that can add the design. The artwork costs $75 to $200.
The first tattoo on a tooth was nearly 20 years ago, at the Suburbia Dental Laboratory in Bloomfield, Conn., when a customer asked for an image of a corvette to be put on his crown.
And the possibilities for teeth tattoos are as endless as the the wall of a Jersey Shore tattoo parlor: People have apparently gotten Homer Simpson, sports and band logos, and cats.
