In my own little geeked out world, I am still waiting for the day that a very good tattooing video game comes to one of the major platforms like xbox or the PS3. Yes, it’s stupid, but it would be just too much fun to refuse. Call me what you want, I would definitely play a tattoo video game. So far, we have not been treated to anything of the sort, but I know that it’s only a matter of time before something comes along.
At present time, anyone who is desperate enough to have some sort of electronic interaction with tattoo can take consolation in the fact that a mobile phone application developer has created an app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch called Tattoo You.
‘Tattoo You is a unique photo editing utility that allows users to superimpose life-like tattoo designs onto photos of themselves or others with a few simple clicks. Built purely for fun, this free app has a number of useful customization features and sharing options, and offers users access to new unique tattoo designs via inexpensive in-app purchase as well. Tattoo You is currently available for download on the Apple App Store free of charge in the Entertainment category.’
I guess that in a way, Tattoo You can be used by people who are curious to see how a tattoo would look on their bodies. But I think we all know that this won’t be used for that. It’s pretty much just a novelty item, with no real practical use. Still, it only keeps me ever hopeful that someday soon, a quality tattoo video game will be created for a major console.
Come on xbox and PS3 – get a real tattoo video game going, already!
