New app lets you preview a tattoo before the pain!
A new app gives you the chance to see what a tattoo is going to look like on your skin before going ahead with the session
A new app has been released which lets you preview what a tattoo is going to look like before you go ahead with the decision.
It's called InkHunter and it makes really clever use of Augmented Reality to help you get a glimpse of your inked future. You just have to draw a simple mark on your skin to create a tracking point for the software and then choose your design, or add your own sketch. Then the app lays the image over the mark and even allows it to move around in real time.
You can then easily edit the position and size of the potential tattoo, and snap an image to share with friends. Here's more on how it works.
The app is currently only available on iOS, with an Android version in the works.
