This article explores the most recent kind of tattoos: the technological, smart, tattoos. These tech-tattoos have the capacity of sensing, measuring, analysing and emitting data about the body’s biochemistry through signs and colours inscribed in and on the skin, depending if they are done in the body with conductive ink or if they are worn on the skin. Even if still temporary – because conductivity is lost through skin’s natural resistance -, tech-tattoo aims at becoming a daily device.
