Gallbladder Henna

 - Sep 15, 2008   Updated: Jul 5 2011
Organ tattoos originally began within the organ transplant industry to ensure that transplant patients got the correct organs, but it has now become an art form.

Witness the intricate henna design on the gallbladder here, for example.

Strangely, there are enough of these organ tattoos to find some common patterns in terms of organ and design:

Colon - Snake

Crown of thorns - heart

Light bulb - brain

I (Someone's Name) - heart

Implications - Youth consumers are captivated by unfamiliar experiences. With a new experience consumers are compelled to share with others what they have seen with those in their network. Companies should build marketing campaigns with this demographic in mind because they will help spread the campaign to their friends organically.
