Would you trust a robot to give you a tattoo? What you’re looking at here is the “world’s first tattoo by an industrial robot.” Notice how tightly the person getting the tattoo is strapped to the chair. You just know that if he moves, that robot is gonna cut him. Or at least it will give him a bad tattoo.
The project was engineered by French designers Pierre Emm and Johan da Silveira. Back in 2014, along with fellow ENSCI Les Ateliers-graduate Piotr Widelka, they created Tatoué, a Makerbot 3D printer with a tattoo gun instead of a plastic extruder, so they have a bit of history in this field. This big industrial robot ups the ante.
I wouldn’t trust it. Sure, it might have steadier “hands” than a human, but something could go wrong and it might tear your limbs open.
