Special Announcement

I’ve found a direct competitor to this idea: InkHunter (http://www.inkhunter.tattoo/). I’m going to continue research to understand any proposition gaps that may exist. Input welcome! Thanks

Personally I know nothing about tattoos but I really like the idea. If this works with tattoos then there’s no reason it can’t work with other items such as jewellery.

Is the technology already available?

I think I need to do some investigation into the technology. I have seen adjacent apps that project images virtually onto mobile camera device outputs, but I don’t know how accessible these are or if indeed supported by most mobile devices today. Thanks Rob, I’ll update once I know more.

One thing I like about this idea is the potential for this app to connect tattoo artists with potential clients on a global basis. Would there be a way that clients could commission the design of bespoke artwork remotely via the app before taking an expensive flight in person?

Yeah I imagine this to be a really cool feature, and then the user could then project the design onto themselves to see how happy they are. The more I think about it, the more I feel this to be a really great consultation tool for artists working around the globe.

I guess there would need to be consideration around ownership of the original design, and also and cost associated with consultation… perhaps you only get 3 amendments before you need to start paying.

Yeah although I’d imagine the more bespoke artwork would need to be commissioned on a paid basis anyway if the artist is building something from scratch on an hourly rate
