Animated Augmented Reality Tattoo Sings a Little Song

This isn’t just a any old tattoo, but it’s actually an animated augmented reality tattoo, which in my book makes it awesomesauce. However, I still wouldn’t want one on my skin. Would you?

The tattoo was created by Paris-based tattoo artist Karl Marc. As the barcode tattoo was completed, it became the target for an augmented reality application. The whole thing was streamed live while he worked on his friend Marco’s chest for about four hours. Once finished, the tat resulted in a little augmented reality animation on the guys chest.

The only question that remains is what to do once you get tired of that little animation? Probably just tattoo something else over it. Or, you could just create a new animation, I suppose. Adding an interactive element is something that some people will enjoy. I wonder if someone will end up covering their whole body in augmented reality targets.
