Looks like there's some open minded people over at Philips (the electronics company). They have posted a new section in there concept / design area called "SKIN:Tattoo".

Philips Electronic SKIN:Tattoo Video / website

The general premise is that you have some type of electronic ink / blood pathogen(?) under your skin that reacts to various stimuli across your skin. This is my guess on the workings, as it's not described in theory anywhere. But the jist is that you turn your skin into a multi-touch, nerve reacting LCD screen that dynamically draws out tattoos on your skin to match the stimulus.

There's a video on the page that gives a better overview of the idea. Even though it looks like bad softcore emo porn, it shows off the concept well.

So, who would want to get this done? Me? Hell yes. Would I do it over my entire body? I think it's a little late for that. Would I farm out my skin for some beta testing? Hell no. Would t3chdzyn farm his skin out for beta testing... I bet he would.

Now that you know of this new concept, would you do it? It what ways would you improve upon this idea?

Now that is DAMN cool. I'd need to know more before I'd decide whether to be a beta tester, but depending on what's actually in the ink... Hell yeah, I'd do that!

Something about the words 'blood pathogen' is mildly freaking me out ;)
Sounds interesting...but no way would I volunteer myself as a beta tester!

When you look at the kind of thing that's placed into the human body these days, depending on the pathogen it wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing.
I couldn't tell if they were talking about the tattoo reacting to something injected into the bloodstream or using the body's natural chemical changes to bring the tattoo out. I could see both of them working, but the second seems more predictable.
If that's the case though, a moko migh be a bad idea... just imagine what would happen to my poker face!

Hmm... kinda confusing to me I guess... looks cool though.

Don't force your religion on others, inform them and let them choose!

that would be amazing to have  tattoos "come to life" with a stroke across your skin. the concept is very exciting indeed!

I would be the first in line to try this out.
As for improvement, I would say that a mood-sensitive version would be great. No one would ever piss you off if it resulted in demonic and dynamic tattoos appearing all over your face ;)
