Up until now, getting a quality, safely-produced tattoo required the presence of a professional tattooist and their equipment.
But Jakub Pollág, a former Royal College of Art student and current member of Studio Deform, created a portable tattooing device that is easy to use, by anyone, anywhere — potentially changing the way people get tattoos.
Check out the video below to see Pollág’s Personal Tattoo Machine in action…
“The set contains all the parts necessary to create your image straight away. It is a short and simple process to setup the machine and sterilize the surrounding environment, everything else is up to the user,”
according to the Personal Tattoo Machine’s website.
Pollág created his Personal Tattoo Machine project for this year’s Czech Design Week. His goal was to design a product that would give users a financially accessible and comfortable way to, “permanently mark their meaningful memories onto their skin.”
Although the product has its own website and seems like it is packaged for sale, the company has yet to release any information on how to buy your own or when the product will be available to the public.
