The 3D printer that can give you a TATTOO!
3D PRINTER X TATTOO MACHINE
Some people perceive tattoos to be a unique work of art on the skin, etched by skilled artists.

A group of three French design students modified a MarkerBot 3D printer as part of a challenge set by France's Cultural Ministry, which challenged people to remix images and sounds in the public domain.
