"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.
