Auto Ink, Computerized Tattoo Machine Development...Hmmm?
I don't have a tattoo, girlfriends before have, and they can be quite attractive, but for me I haven't yet settled on anything I want permanently on my body...but who knows how I will feel in a few years, or later this year for that matter. BUT i came upon this and it just felt weird. I am all for making things better, but a huge part of tattoo'ing is the fact its HAND DONE. This just seems like the temp tatoo/screen printed/mass marketed bastardization of the artform. Now I'm sure some people would appreciate this machine...me, especially as an artist, i'm skeptical of it. Kinda curious how the tattoo community views this....something to think about.
"Right now Auto Ink is setup with a pen rather than a needle, but is still an interesting piece/concept nonetheless"
