For consumers contemplating putting a permanent tattoo design on their body, the Ink Hunter platform might be an ideal app to test the concept out on using digital augmented reality. The app allows consumers to visually see what their tattoo ideas might actually look like on the body by scanning the user and using virtual reality to place the tattoo on the skin, giving a realistic interpretation of how the piece might look. This is an ideal first stop for consumers to experiment with tattoos that aren't sure where on their body they want the illustration to go or what design their interested in.
Ink Hunter functions by scanning various areas of the body onto the user's smartphone and then digitally placing a tattoo design onto the skin. Users can see the tattoo in full effect using virtual reality to rotate the body and see the design from all angles, as if it was really placed on the body.
