This is so strange – I wonder sometimes why people put so much effort into something that will probably never be used.  I think I would have focused my energy on something like a whole new tattoo machine design.  The current machine is pretty “old School” and really hasn’t changed drastically over the years.

But this automatic tattoo machine is really off the wall.  I’ve been trying to come up with scenarios where it would be used.  Possibly someday these machines will be at the mall – you push in some cash and you get a stamp of a tattoo for like $15.00…? How can it ever compare to an artist?  How can it judge depth?  How deep the needle is going?

The inventor Chris Evert has a video available for viewing and I was floored by the quality that it churned out.  It seemed as if the video was edited.  There was absolutely zero blood visible.

And who was the first to volunteer for that test run? The random religious tattoo limitation is really strange but Chris has his explanation for that which was interesting. You’ll want to visit and check out the video

It’s a sophisticated machine but I just don’t see it catching on.
