Everyone who doesn’t have tattoos says that you’re going to regret the tattoos you get right now, when you get old. Not exactly! This short documentary by Angie Bird interviews those types of older people with tattoos and finds out that as silly as some tattoos are, they all carry meaning and have an interesting story to them.
There was some bad news last week for tattooed Apple fans hoping to take advantage of everything the company’s new smartwatch had to offer. It turns out that ink on your arm hinders the Apple Watch’s ability to monitor your heart rate. But, as Conan discovered, Apple already has a simple solution for sale.
The thing about tattoos is they’re inked on your skin for life, unless you want to undergo an expensive, time-consuming and potentially scarring laser-removal process. But now, a tattoo-removal cream could be the destroyer of a thousand unwanted lower-back butterflies and a saving grace for their owners.
An opportunity to hear many of your favourite bands isn’t the only reason to attend a music festival. There are other recreational activities to enjoy, but they don’t always leave you in a state where you can remember who’s performing next at which stage, where you left your schedule, or even your first name. So a temporary tattoo that puts the event’s lineup right on your forearm is a great idea.
What if the sweat produced by your body could power your gadgets? And what if the connection between the two could be made by a temporary tattoo, the more you sweat, the more power the tattoo generates? That’s exactly what researchers at UC San Diego have developed — and one day, it could power your wearables.
Video: Your body is constantly throwing off dead skin cells — a million every day. So how come tattoos don’t fall off with them? It turns out, your body’s immune system tries to get rid of the ink under your skin, but in the process, it makes those marks permanent, as this video from TED-Ed explains. Funny how that works — your body tries to get rid of something, but only succeeds in making it hang around for the rest of your life. Joke’s on you, dermis!
Feeling brave? How about getting a tattoo? How about getting a tattoo from a 3D printer? That’s not as ridiculous as it sounds, as a group of students from the ENSCI-Les Ateliers design school in Paris has shown. Armed with some inspiration and a MakerBot 3D printer, they swapped the extruder for a pen to see if the hardware could be used to ink up someone’s arm.
