If you are unsure whether or not you should get a tattoo, this new app could be for you.

There is a new app which can show you what it will look like if you do get inked.

Inkhunter lets you choose from a selection of samples or upload your own artwork and uses your phone’s camera to show how it would look on your skin.

You simply draw a smiley face on the part of your body where the tattoo would go, select your artwork and wait for the app to do its job.

If you’re uncertain, this app could help prevent a bad idea from lasting forever – if you try out your tattoo and it looks awful, all you’ll have to deal with is a washable smiley face.

Just out of beta testing, the app is free from the Apple and Android stores and has already been downloaded 2.5 million times on iOS.

Inkhunter plan to keep the app free and pay for it by charging artists to put their designs up for people to try out – so you could also find your dream tattoo on there.
