Tattoos are one of the most popular forms of self-expression in this day and age. The skin is all yours and there’s a whole lot of it that can be used as canvas for the inking. Sound wave tattoos, as they are being called are the new stage in the evolution of the self-expressive art form. They allow you listen to your own body art using good ole smart phones. Skin Motion is the app behind the magic; created by a Los Angeles based tattoo artist Nate Siggard.
The app creates tattoo designs in wave form patterns from audio clips up to one minute long. It feels like something you would expect from a futuristic movie but not actually see in your life time. Well here it is. The designs can be made up of words, music, or anything audible and tattooed unto the skin. The app can then read the designs and play the audio back to you. This combination of art and technology gives us hope for what more we can expect from collaborations of technology, art and creativity. The company is planning to partner with tattoo artists around the world who will then become certified to carry out the designs.
Although some are sceptical about just how realistic or possible this is, I’m excited to see what comes next from this.
