The French team behind the 3D-printing tattoo machine is back at it. The group whose viral video of a machine designed to tattoo a person without the use of an artist has been slowly improving their contraption over the last year. The basic concept is to take a standard geometric design and have the machine reproduce it as a tattoo through a series of algorithms. Now moving into more intricate designs, the team has been posting videos of their progress online in a new video series. Though they claim the purpose of this machine is to simply create another outlet for tattooing rather than replace an artist, we feel that this machine should be kept away from the sphere of tattooing and left to the actual artists to create the art, not simply reproduce someone else's designs. They team has yet to test their latest design on an actual human canvas, but instead are working with synthetic skin. You can check out their progress in the video above.
