Did the subway sarin incident go to plan?

SarinGasFilter: in the Aum Shinrikyo sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway in 1995, 5 team members released a total of 5.5 litres of liquid sarin at 5 different locations. According to this Wikipedia article, "a single drop of sarin the size of the head of a pin can kill an adult," yet the total deaths = 12. Were Aum Shinrikyo aware that their sarin was spectacularly bad/ impure/ degraded, or were they aiming for significantly more fatalities?

Tokyo tattoos

The girlfriend and I are going to Tokyo for a week's vacation in October. She'd like to get a tattoo while she's there (she already has a couple). The designs she has in mind (probably a Haeckel piece) would require a very skilled tattoo artist, I'd think. Any recommendations?
