In a devastating display of what can happen when a fresh tattoo becomes exposed, a man has died fighting an infection after taking a swim in the ocean with newly acquired ink.

From her 2011 Grammys arrival in a giant egg to that raw meat dress, Lady Gaga has built her reputation on shock. Wearing an elegant Brandon Maxwell halter-neck frock, she teamed the dress with a classy updo and subtle pink glossy lipstick.

It was founded by Arianna Warner, who has Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) - a near-invisible injury that causes persistent severe pain - and is made up of five artists each with their own invisible disability or illness: Aubrey Hight, Lindsay Carter, Kimber Teatro, Trevor Ward and Tanya Magdalena.

Researchers at MIT have found a way of turning your temporary skin bedazzling into a remote control for your phones, tablets and such. DuoSkin is the combination of oh-so-trendy gold leaf tattoos, layers of silicon and insulation and tiny electronic elements, theoretically printable at home and applied as a water transfer (as with all good fake tats), that can act as a device for input, output or communication. The designs can be made up on any basic computer program, furthering their customisability. The ‘output’ aspect is basically a mood ring for your skin or a Global Hypercolour t-shirt, only without the obvious ‘can you tell I’m hella sweaty’ patches. Thermochromics change colour when the body goes above a certain heat, either changing the colour of the whole tattoo or just selected parts They even created an app called ‘Couple Harmony’ that, by some sorcery, your partner could press a “mood button” on their forearm to make your tattoo change colour to let you know when they’re angry! As if the frustrated prodding of their own arm wasn’t signal enough… Another application is as jewellery, embedded with LEDs to really make that bling pop.
