"E-ink Tattoos That Change With Your Mood
Uses Safe Sub-dermal Implants!
How many people do you know who regret their tattoo? You grow up, you dump (or get dumped), or maybe you picked a tattoo "artist" who learned his craft in prison using ballpoint pens and a sharpened paper clip. At that point, your choices are: deal with it, get it covered up, or get shot with lasers to take it off. And nobody wants to go for a job interview only to be given the evil eye because you're a little more inked than the current employees! Body modification discrimination is a sad fact of life.
What do you do when you want a tattoo but don't want the commitment of permanent ink? The moodInq system is a breakthrough in tattoo technology, using a skin-safe proprietary E-ink encapsulated pigment system that lasts a lifetime but can be configured to display any design (or none!) to suit your mood. "

So how does it work? We have partnered with leading physicians and technicians in the cosmetic surgery industry to implant the E-ink grid, called a canvas. The canvas can go anywhere on your body and be configured to the size and shape of the body party you'd like to ink. After a short healing period (usually 2-3 days), you can begin using the moodInq software included with your kit to change your canvas to display the tattoo you desire!
(Important Note: What you are buying here is the moodInq Wand, software, and a 2-year membership to moodInq's tattoo art database. Your kit will come with a list of participating cosmetic surgery clinics. Tattoo canvas implantation prices vary by provider and canvas surface area desired.)
Once the implantation process is complete, changing your tattoo is easy and quick with the moodInq Wand. Just fire up the tattoo design software and choose your design from our database of over 100,000 tattoo designs. Resize, flip and crop your images, add text, or even upload your own designs. Plug in the wand to your computer via USB and simply run the wand over the canvas to configure the E-ink capsules in the canvas to display your chosen design. The design will remain exactly the same until the next time you use the wand or in the rare case of a large electric shock or massive EMF disruption.
The uses of a moodInq tattoo are endless. Going home to visit mom & dad? Run the wand over your lower back and remove that "tramp stamp" your parents forbid you to get.
