Inkwell’s new line of watches feature an array of unique designs for tattoo lovers. In fact, the watches utilize an “exclusive printing technology similar to an actual tattoo with its natural depth of lines and shapes”. The designs are also the work of professional tattoo artists.

However, they need your help to make them a reality.

Take a closer look below.

3d tattoo top

Tattoo artist Winston the Whale (aka Dave) has made a name for himself by creating simple tattoo designs and layering one on top of the other for an old-school 3D effect that recalls the days of drive-in theaters. It all started when one of his friends asked for a 3D Skull tattoo, and took off like wildfire from there.

Check out more examples below.

What if tattoos like this could become a reality? That’s only one possible application of super thin wearable displays.

Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed something called an “optoelectronic skin” with polymer LEDs and organic photodetectors that are only 3 micrometers thick! You could have a watch effectively tattoo’d right there onto your hand, which is more effective and useful than the one I drew onto my wrist with a Sharpie, just now, out of boredom.

The tech isn’t quite there yet obviously. It has to be held in place with clingfilm and the display is just a single-digit field that displays your blood oxygen levels. However, it’s easy to imagine all of the applications that advanced wearable displays could have in the future.

Check out a video of the display in action below.

The Cutest Space Tattoo

A relationship between an astronaut and an alien girl that doesn’t need a spacesuit seems like it would be difficult—but I’m sure they’ll make it work.

We’re not sure where this tattoo came from, but yeah—super cute.

That’s right, just like the cast getting matching “Skwad” tattoos last year, you and your “Squad” can head down to Harley’s Tattoo Parlor at SXSW from March 11th to March 19th and get inked.

They’ve released new posters with tattoos inspired by the characters and cast members including Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney are challenging you to “make your mark”.

Jai Courtney wasn’t subtle about it.

Check out the posters below.

This fantastic Princess Leia / Disney’s Haunted Mansion mashup tattoo by Mae La Roux is based on the art of Karen Hallion. So if you don’t have the guts to get a similar tattoo, you can always wear the shirt.
