How To: Turn a 3D Printer Into A Digital Tattoo Artist

Here’s an innovative way to give yourself tattoos if you’re good at digital graphics: just use your 3D printer! The project is on Instructibles, from Pierre Emm and Johan Da Silveria – French students with a penchant for technology and tattoos.

The genius idea came from a workshop at Parisian design school ENSCI les Ateliers, where the French Ministry hosted a creative workshop to get students to re-create items in the public domain – a “mashup” of sorts. The tattoo team went completely outside the box by creating away to create tattoos pulled from a bank of public images. What begin as a pen tattoo operation became a real digital tattoo artist capable of printing real inked tattoos – whatever images you can dream up or find. Check out their video here:
