Also not entirely sure how this would be profitable for a biotech or a pharma. Really niche community that would want this

All the Saved/ROA/Frith crew posting about this 'in three days' shit.

Then Brad Stevens comes a long and totally rips it apart.

I'm so confused!!!! I thought it was just a new social media platform!?!?

WHAT IS GOING ON??? I NEED TO KNOW!

Damn, it's a bummer to see a number of tattooers who I respect and have been tattooed by buying into this bullshit. I wonder how much money it took to get them to do this. Such gimmicky bullshit.

Pretty small list but I got tattooed by:

Matt Wes x6
Andy Canino
Gary Royal

All awesome guys. Also it's a bummer how many artists I was planning to get tattooed by are into this stuff. I'm not 100% informed but I probably won't be going to Great Lakes anytime soon now if what I'm thinking happens pans out. Pretty wack.

i just like the idea that people will take their beloved ones DNA infused ink to an artist that signed up for this and half of dear grannie ethel's DNA is going to be wiped up by a paper towel and dumped in the trash by the artist mid tattoo.

Someone could get a $400 memorial tattoo, or someone could get a $1400 memorial tattoo with the promise of using the persons dna as ink as a gimmick because someone hyped them to it. Dont care how people spend their money, but id like to see the safety data behind it before anything. Im gonna assume there is none whatsoever

The big issue with these DNA tattoo bullshit - is that there is a company out there that is profiting off of tattooing, while having 0 part in it. They basically recruited these 'big name' tattooers to push it and make everyone think that its "cool" - It's not. Most people aren't going to give a shit, but it's pretty disappointing seeing a lot of these tattooers who are supporting it.. These guys are all doing super well and living very comfortably, i'm sure so I can't imagine they needed the $$ that bad. I also REALLY can't imagine that a single one of them would do this themselves.

I agree with the first part, but you can never really tell how well someone manages their money.

Yeah, it's a real bummer. And that leads back to my previous post, because these are all really successful artists, I wonder how much it took to buy them out. Like, I can't imagine all of these people are buying into this shit, especially someone like Nick Colella who is adamantly opposed to outsiders' involvement in tattooing.

I think the biggest concern is that from the outside it seems like some company that has no ties to tattooing, came up with some gimmicky bullshit that they think they can sell and make a boatload of profit off of, then bought out a bunch of well respected tattooers to peddle their bullshit. And do you really think that tattoo artists charge "exorbitant" prices? Some do, sure, but I'd say most are pretty reasonable when you account for the amount of overhead they have. Either way, I imagine that these stupid fucking DNA tattoos are going to cost wayyyyyy more than a normal tattoo.

whats interesting to me is how many of the artist involved are the same ones that for years commented about the "poaching" of their community by outside interests.

but im all for cash grabs and if the logic behind some of this is that they can now afford to fly first class instead of coach to a convention based on nothing besides putting some shit on IG and having your name used...go nuts.

I started typing out a big response to that, had to do a little tattoo and came back and deleted it all.. I never understood the people who complain about pricing. You live in a big city, want good tattoos, then you're paying big city prices. You want tattooed by the best out there? So does everyone else, so you gotta pay what they ask or go to the shithead down the road. I've been tattooed all over the place, and by 50-60 different people.. only once was i ever charged "exorbitant prices", and that was in SF. Also seems like a lot of people don't understand that out of the $500 you're paying your tattooer, the shop is getting close to half of that automatically.

This right here is what makes it so bizarre. I'd never expect some of these people to want anything to do with this, but here we are.

I'm starting to suspect they were just offered a shitload of money just to make those posts, change their avatars, and post those IG stories and then will act like it never happened when the checks clear and this gimmick ends up being a bust. Most of the captions on the posts are really similar and makes me think the tattooers themselves have absolutely nothing to do with the "project".

Dude, I baited you while I was bored. Don't take it so seriously.
Artists can charge whatever they want as far as I'm concerned. That's why I said it's their prerogative. Do I think it costs an arm and a leg to get tattooed sometimes? Yes I do. That just means I would go to someone cheaper. No problem.
There does seem to be a little discussion about higher prices that is not just coming from me though. So can they or can't they charge what they want, and does that bother you?

Going to reserve too much judgement until more info comes out, but if @FourtyFour is right—cool, hope they make a lot of money. But if there's outside investment or people that haven't been in the industry before they were born—yikes, that's some hypocrisy.

I come from an industry where people put out tons of content to teach others (blog posts, books, videos, tutorials, etc.)—usually for nothing other than to push their skills and share their knowledge with others. From (mostly) the outside looking in, it's such the opposite in tattooing, and that's always been off-putting to me.

Maybe 9 or 10 months ago those DNA tattoo people were pitching to some artists, with military officials in the room (because apparently the military invested in this technology) at my work. I was in the room and my favorite part was when someone said, "we can already use ashes in ink, why would I charge 3x as much for this?" The response was, "ashes are just carbon, this is DNA."
