I'll admit, when I first heard about Hamm and his mission to take tattoo preservation mainstream, I was a little weirded out. But as I thought more about it, it struck me as something greater.

What would be the meaning of an "original work" tomorrow if the copy is identical to the original and if being provided with an off-the-shelf technical device is sufficient to reproduce the original? Why would the original be more expensive than the copy? How is it possible to insure effectively against fakes?
