Automatic Tattoo Machine of the Day: We’ve seen homemade self-tattooing devices before, but Chris Eckert’s Auto Ink is slicker, and significantly more dystopian:
Auto Ink is a three axis numerically controlled sculpture. Once the main switch is triggered, the operator is assigned a religion and it’s corresponding symbol is tattooed onto the person’s arm. The operator does not have control over the assigned symbol. It is assigned either randomly or through divine intervention, depending on your personal beliefs.
