This dude called Antoine Goupille recently got tattooed, but it was a little different to your conventional tattoo in that the tattoo was performed by a robot. Antoine modified a 3D printer to achieve this and it’s possible that he might be the first person to ever receive a tattoo from a robot. Remember that for a pub quiz in 2042.
Of course, the tattoo is pretty lame – it’s just a simple circle on his arm and not some kind of epic sprawling back piece with a bunch of colours, shades and parts – but it’s still indicative of the fact that a robot can now perform a tattoo and the fact of the matter is that the way technology seems to develop super quickly now then it probably won’t be too long until a robot can do a completely sick back piece for you. And then you’ll remember the name of Antoine Goupille.
Check out a video about the process and tattoo below. If you’re a young tattoo artist, maybe start getting slightly worried.
