Everyone has probably heard about the negligible health risks of getting tattoos. When it comes down to it, as long as you are not getting a tattoo in a tattoo parlour that looks suspiciously like some guy’s garage or van, you are probably going to be fine.
If you choose a clean, well-looked after place with a good reputation (see Canadian Ink), you are sure to be as healthy as when you walked in. Better yet, if you get the scientists at the University of Illinois give you a tattoo, it will give you untold god-like power.
The legendary power of probably not dying soon.
This tattoo is not really a tattoo in the traditional sense, it is more like a technology-enhanced temporary tattoo. Which is much different that the temporary tattoos we discussed in the last post. With these tattoos, there is much less flesh-melting and much more life-saving technology.
These highly-advanced nanotechnology-based tattoos continually measure your heartbeat, muscle activity, and it even measures your brainwaves. This information is sent wirelessly to health-care practitioners to help monitor your health. Which they can then use to send health alerts directly to your brain.
*Health Alert: Blood-alcohol ratio rising beyond recommended levels. Also, stop thinking about peeing on that.*
We don’t know about you, but we would be hesitant to get something implanted into our bodies that can read our brainwaves. Most people don’t want anyone looking at their internet history, let alone their private brainwaves.
