Automatic Tattoo Machine Randomly Assigns Religious Symbols
Chris Eckert has created a robotic device that requires users to relinquish control to randomness.
Auto Ink intends to set itself apart from other CNC tattoo machines, since it is a three axis Cartesian controlled robot that tattoos a person’s arm with a randomly selected religious symbol. Created by Chris Eckert, an artist based in San José, California, the brave user places their arm face up into the machine, and holds onto a grip. Whenever the main switch is triggered, the needle positions itself above the skin and then starts to apply ink, with each user assigned a religion as well as its corresponding symbol, relinquishing total control over what is being tattooed onto the forearm. Eckert’s provides some insight into why the machine inks religious symbols:
