Robotic Tattoo Machine Plays Russian Roulette with Religious Symbols

Created by Chris Eckert, Auto Ink is a robotic, automatic tattoo machine–except instead of tattooing band symbols, names of significant others, Triforces, and hearts with “Mom,” Auto Ink picks a religion at random on startup, then tattoos said religion’s symbol, regardless of what religion the victim actually practices. At least a robotic tattooist can make some perfectly straight lines when it’s tattooing the wrong religion on your wrist. Of course, there’s always the joke that whatever symbol gets chosen is what your true beliefs should actually be.
