Engineers Test Robotic Tattoo Artist

French designers have engineered a 3D printer with a tattoo-gun arm that can interpret images through software and ink them onto a human recipient strapped into a chair. What do you think?

“Finally, a tattoo artist who won’t kick me out for being too drunk!”

Darryl Walters • Rubber Molder


“I’m not comfortable getting a tattoo from any machine that doesn’t have at least a couple tattoos of its own.”

Leslie King • Mattress Roller

“Robots, needles, immobility—it’s like the French know all my sweet spots.”

Jonah Dean • Nozzle Tester
