Tattoo robot. 'Nuff said.

While it would be possible to create a robot that knows all the technicalities, I doubt any machine would be able to create 'real' art with a 'human' touch. Tattooing is - or should be - a positive interaction between the artist and the client.

First the client needs to express what (exactly) they want, and the artist has to work on that, come up with a design. Then the design should be discussed, probably reworked, discussed more, reworked and finally agreed upon by both parties. After that complex artistic process, the technical abilities come into play.


I've convinced Boyd to get me a tattoo for Christmas. I have a pretty good idea of what I want but I'm not sure how well I'll do finding a place to get it done. Because Boyd works out of town all the organising is left to me, and I'm not very organised. But we'll see :D

Just make sure you you pick a studio that you like... don't rush things to get it all done before x-mas!

I would suggest walking in and out of a few studios, talking to the artists, check their portfolios and such. When you feel at easy with a studio and an artist, schedule an appointement.

Will it be your first?
