soundwave tattoos that let you inscribe a loved-one’s voice or your favourite tune onto your body.Skin Motion is an app that creates tattoo designs from audio clips, which can be played back via your smartphone.The Skin Motion app is currently in development and is scheduled for release in June 2017.
With Soundwave Tattoos, people will be able to upload or record the audio they want on the app or website. A Soundwave is generated, which they can take to a licensed tattoo artist from their Artist Network. Once the artist does the tattoo, a photo of it is uploaded to the platform. The audio and tattoo are then processed and added to the app. When the user opens the app and points their mobile device’s camera at the tattoo, it recognizes the shape of the Soundwave and plays back the original sound.
The firm says that of the thousands of messages they have already received, the majority of enquiries have been about preserving the memory of people who have passed on.
