Body art has a long tradition in many cultures. Tattooing involves applying pigment to the skin with a needle, and is done by a trained professional. Many people have tattoos to express their identity or commemorate an event. However, tattoos have limitations. They usually remain visible only on the skin they were applied to. In the future, medical technicians might be able to remove old tattoos- but this process would break the tattoo’s connections with the client and the artist. Now scientists have found a way around this problem: nanopatterned tissue engineering (NFT). In addition to traditional tattoo designs, this technique can produce lifelike 3D models of any complex object. Scientists developed NFTs as a way to store complex data and make it accessible whenever necessary. Body art lovers can now get tattoos that will ‘live forever’ on their body.
NFTs are becoming increasingly popular among tattoo artists and their clients. Artists take advantage of these new techniques to create unique tattoos. Some clients want to personalize their bodies by getting unique tattoos. They choose this option when they want a tattoo that will last for years rather than months. Some people get tattoos for aesthetic reasons- but also because they want them to last for life. Tattoos are permanent because they connect the client with the artist for a lifetime. The high visibility of NFTs makes them ideal for such applications.
Since NFTs allow tattoos to be modified and updated, people can update their tattoos whenever they like. These modifications are particularly helpful for religious tattoos. Many religions require members to wear body art that matches their beliefs and traditions. These body modifications help people identify fellow believers without having to speak or shake hands directly. In addition, wearing body art shows other people your values and beliefs. Thus, it’s great that artists can update old body art with new tattoos that match current trends and beliefs.
Body modification has many applications outside of religion, too. Many people get tattoos as an expression of their culture or heritage. Some choose traditional tribal designs or designs based on poems or stories from their childhoods or cultures they represent at work or social events. Others select famous celebrities or athletes who represent the same things they do on the daily basis. Historical references are common on arms, backs and legs for those interested in preserving their past through physical representation- either through legacy tattoos or military insignia applied in similar fashion (i.e., ‘Flash’ Gordon’s iconic shoulder patch from 1930s sci-fi action films).
Future technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and tattoo artists are already taking advantage of it in new ways. The high visibility of NFTs makes them ideal for cosmetic applications like tribal designs or patriotic symbols. Doctors now have easy access to advanced technology thanks to tattoo artists using NFTs for medical purposes. The applications are limited only by our imagination!
