3D Printer That Gives Tattoos [includes video]

3D printers are doing a lot of things today, but did you guess they’d be giving tattoos? Well, this one does.

As part of an electronics workshop at Paris’s ENSCI-Les Ateliers design school, French students Pierre Emm, Piotr Wedelka, and Johan da Silveira hacked a Makerbot 3D printer, adding a tattoo gun to the machine.

Brave, French-speaking souls with access to a 3D printer and tattoo equipment can try it themselves, as the team has posted detailed directions on Instructables. For now, the tattoo robot is only capable of simple designs like the circle in the video. [Animal NY]
