Artist Creates ‘Soundwave Tattoos’, Ink Designs That You Can Actually Listen To
By Izza Sofia, 05 May 2017
Soon you can permanently rock your favorite lyrics via the new ‘Soundwave Tattoos’, created by Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Nate Siggard.
Using his patent-pending ‘Skin Motion’ application, Siggard brings audio to life via tattoos that you can actually listen to. The idea was born when two of his friends were inked with the first line from Elton John’s Tiny Dancer. Siggard’s girlfriend mentioned that the tattoos would be cooler if they could be heard.
The comment inspired Siggard to create his very own ‘soundwave tattoo’ featuring the voices of his girlfriend and their baby. It grew quickly in popularity after he uploaded it to Facebook, with people asking Siggard where they could get one.
Now, with the ‘Skin Motion’ app, you can transform up to one minute of audio into a design, which can then be translated into real ink by a certified ‘Skin Motion’ tattoo artist.
Visit ‘Soundwave Tattoos’ to learn more or sign up to get first dibs on this tattoo trend—appointments are scheduled to start June 2017.
