E-ink tattoos use your skin as a digital canvas

It’s easy to think of the human body as a canvas for tattoos. Now think of the human body as a digital canvas for tattoos. We’re not kidding. With programmable tattoo system moodINQ, you can implant an E ink grid on any spot on your skin and switch displays as often as you like.

It comes with a software (where you can choose your tatt from a database of over 100,000 designs or upload your own) and a wand device that you can wave over your canvas grid to configure E Ink capsules that display just what you want. You can even put on a blank slate if you want to. Sounds like countless hours of fun.
