Tattoo 2.0

Exploring the future of ink

Implications - Tattoos are evolving beyond traditional ink. As alternative and counter-culture practices become more mainstream, people are seeking more unique forms of self-expression, whether it's a braille tattoo, glow-in-the-dark ink or an emotion-sensing tattoo. Safer versions, such as false tattoo sleeves and edible chocolate tattoos, are also being sought out, thanks to a greater emphasis on health and well-being.
