Have you lost a loved one that you would like to memorialize forever in a way that you can tell their story and share it with the world? Perhaps you have a favorite song or quote that represents who you are and why you are here. Maybe, you are the life of the party and you love a great joke – one that breaks the ice and invites others to take a step back from the seriousness of life and have a good laugh.

Soundwave Tattoos are a brand new way to express yourself using art and technology. What is more personal, more permanent, and more meaningful than a tattoo? A tattoo you can play back.

Soundwave Tattoos were created to do all of these things and more. It all started when two friends got the opening line from Tiny Dancer tattooed by Nate Siggard. As they were leaving after their appointment, Nate’s girlfriend Juliana said “wouldn’t it be cool if you could listen to the tattoo?” and Nate quickly realized that he could make that happen. Nate decided he needed one of his own, with Juliana and their 4 month old baby saying “I love you” and filmed it to share online.

He posted the video on Facebook the next day, and it immediately went viral. Messages started pouring in from people all over the world who wanted to get one too. Nate quickly realized the potential for a way to make Soundwave Tattoos available for everyone. After writing the patent for personalized augmented reality tattoos, he launched Skin Motion – a new app that brings tattoos to life.

After you record or upload your desired audio clip in our app and purchase the Soundwave Tattoo, you need to get it tattooed by a Skin Motion certified artist.

The cost of the tattoo is separate from the cost of the use of the app to play your Soundwave Tattoo. This is so that the artist can use their normal procedures and have the ability to customize your tattoo for you.
