Someone Loved Banksy's Robot Graffiti Writer So Much That They Got the Tattoo

Getting a tattoo by your favorite artist is pretty common, but that's usually after many years of admiring the piece and loving the artist. Miykey of New York Hardcore Tattoos posted this photo to Instagram of a piece someone requested of Banksy's Robot Graffiti Writer which he painted in Coney Island yesterday. That has to be the fastest turnaround time in tattoo/street art history. Miykey opted for the artist's name under the barcode instead of the series of numbers found in the original piece but otherwise the artwork looks pretty spot on. The street art is currently being protected, but chances are this tattoo will outlive most of his pieces from this New York City residency.
