I have yet to meet a tattooed person who would be willing to give up their regular artist.

Hmm, I'm pretty sure a tattoo would only need a 2d printer.

I don't get the asinine tag subby it makes sense, tattoos are for ever, so if your tattoo artist farks up, that fark up is forever. A printer allows for the image to to made and edited on a computer, and duplicated without having to trust the abilities of a person.

That being said, I'd wait a while till they got out all the bugs before I would use on myself.

I saw this done months ago.  Who knows, it might be the same people but nobody can claim to be the first.

Googling...

Yeah, three years ago

What about that kid who is getting their first tattoo? There certainly is a market for this.

I can only imagine how difficult it will be to hit the 'emergency stop' button on an industrial 3d tattoo machine once you notice its calibration is off and it is now printing a pretty fairy tattoo that was to appear on your hip to now become a morbidly obese hippo with wings now stretched across your chest and face.

I would, however, like to see that on youtube. So we need to encourage this and make it happen.
