Highest Quality Tattoo Yet
I have had to make many minor adjustments to the grasshopper file, arduino sketch, and the physical machine to get this tattoo result. The image is the same giraffe that I tattooed onto my arm in my previous post, except this time I made it just a little bit thinner and turned it upside-down.
The problem I am facing now is that any more small changes will not have very much impact on overall result. This means that to get a better tattoo I will need to entirely rebuild one part of my machine, and as the support arch is my weakest, that is the part I will be redesigning for better tattoo results. For the redesign I am planning on getting another stepper motor to add to the arch piece which will give me a lot more control. I will also be purchasing more markers as the black and the blue ones have already run dry and now I am left with just green and red.
