These Innovative Tattoos Change Color According To Your Health (7 Pics, Video)

What if your tattoos could change color according to your health? This is the brilliant idea of DermalAbyss, a research group of the MIT Media Lab, which has designed a tattoo ink capable of reacting to various parameters such as sodium, pH or glucose. By changing color, these revolutionary tattoos can, for example, help diabetics to monitor their glucose levels, or to report a state of dehydration.

For now, the DermalAbyss tattoo ink is a prototype in test phase, but it is possible that this innovative ink will soon be introduced in tattoo parlors!

DermalAbyss presents a novel approach to biointerfaces in which the body surface is rendered an interactive display. Traditional tattoo inks are replaced with biosensors whose colors change in response to variations in the interstitial fluid. It blends advances in biotechnology with traditional methods in tattoo artistry.
