Ashley Madison, the world's leading dating website for married people, discovered people seeking extramarital relationships find tattoos attractive.
Watch out ladies; if you’ve been considering getting a tat for a while now, then these are bound to push you over the edge and right into the tattoo parlour. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. [Photos: Pinterest]
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. Each artist created a temporary tattoo representing their experience of their disability, and making it easier to understand.
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.

ALSO SEE: Tattoo artist gives sick kids awesome airbrushed tattoos Instead of using a typical stencil to mark designs on the skin, Zolotukhina dips flowers, twigs, leaves and stems into ink and then presses them onto the skin, creating unique impressions that she then tattoos over. The result is a truly one-of-a-kind organic design that celebrates the beauty of nature. Click through the gallery above and let us know what you think by tweeting to @YahooStyleCA.
When it comes to tattoos, flower power is always a popular choice. It’s easy to see why as there are just SO many stunning options to choose from. Minimal poppy illustration, simple peony’s and vintage full sleeves. Flower tatts never fail to look just so darn perfect.
As if the maternal bond wasn’t enough these little cutie pies went and got themselves branded in the name of the purest love that is.
