Ouch

I don't believe in scarification of the body God gave me. No piercings, no tattoos.

But I think I'm in the minority on this one.

"On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords."

Christ has a tattoo? :O

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

The first thing I thought

The first thing I thought about was this definitely is going to put most tattoo artists out of work, but you can't stop progression! I guess what the artist can do is charge a cheaper price, then the printer maybe? Idk, what do you guys think about this? This is so fascinating, isn't it? It gets me thinking about our society 50 to100 years from now, it's just so cool.

Lol

Did color printers make painters and artists obsolete? There is still a long list of reasons why this method of tattooing would be minimally effective. Until that machine can pull from years of personal experience from doing tattoos on all kinds of different skin and pain tolerances I don't see how it would work well. And to then help a person decide how to approach a piece of art for their body, these machines would only affect the lowest level of tattooer . The fact that you could just scan in any design and tattoo it is hilarious and if it actually catches on there will sure be a lot of really bad tattoos walking around on people to cheap to pay a good tattoo artist. Not any image can be successfully tattooed. I laugh at this sort of idea and say bring it on.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy
