I am really out of it when it comes to modern day tattooing...is it the same as in the "old" days - needles, etc.? Or are they less durable? How do they get these new tattoos?
 
When I got my tattoo shortly after my 18th birthday (so about 3 years ago) it was still done with needles. I haven't heard of any breakthroughs since then (at least none that are commonly used).



Wikipedia said:
The most common method of tattooing in modern times is the electric tattoo machine, which inserts ink into the skin via a group of needles that are soldered onto a bar, which is attached to an oscillating unit. The unit rapidly and repeatedly drives the needles in and out of the skin, usually 80 to 150 times a second.

Are you going to get one??
