After all, tattoo artists aren’t known for chasing the next big thing. But that doesn’t mean that inventors, scientists, and entrepreneurs looking for a quick buck aren’t trying to come up with one. Here are five ways that technology is attempting to change the way we tattoo and get tattooed.
Normally when a woman is described as “incendiary,” it’s hyperbole, but in the case of Jayme Foxx, it may be an understatement. If her tattooed body and fiery personality weren’t enough to set her surroundings ablaze, she’d still have an ace in the hole to help her out: her very own custom Zippo lighter.
