CNC Tattoo Machine? Part Deux

So After messaging Hackaday about the CNC Tattoo Machine, I did a bit of searching.

I found this baby
Auto-ink Automatic Tattoo Machine


It’s pretty and all, but according to them it’s random, and it only seems to tattoo in ONE color…(unless you physically change it, which to me loses some of it’s “Auto”ing). I just read the little description and it’s mostly just an art piece.

My idea is to work a little bit like those Old Greeting Card Printer machines they had in Walmart way back when.

I think it was the mid-90s, but they had a CNC Kiosk that printed out greeting cards while you watched through a little glass/plexiglass window. After a bit of searching for SOMEONE that remembers these things, I found someone on Etsy that was talking about it. chaps676¬† Wrote a small article titled “The DreamVendor

They had this little Row of pens that the machine would pick up to change colors. Why not something similar, or even small ink wells so the machine could dip it’s tip to change colors…

Just another weird group of thoughts. One day someone shall read this.
