Soundwave tattoos are a thing now. You can use an app and from a tattoo on your arm, your phone plays back a sound of a pet or a loved one speaking. Would you ever consider getting a tattoo such as this? I admit, it's interesting.

I would consider no tattoo at all, and that sounds creepy.

On a shirt or hat, maybe. But I'm not defiling God's Image (my body) with a tattoo or piercing. God has forbidden that.

In a few years tech will advance and wont be compatible, not to mention the sagging that would mess it up.

I like it. I've considered getting a QR code tattoo of something interesting, maybe my part number and inventory description.

I'm not interested in getting tattoos.

I suspect people who have lots of tattoos when young, learn to regret them later in life.

Voc, there is no painless way to remove tattoos, so hopefully you will continue to like them!

I am well aware Harry. I hope I do too.

Can't you just record the sound of your loved one/pet to remember them? The tattoo seems like an unnecessary step.

This will become obsolete eventually. Not to mention that as you age the image will too and could affect the sound. Sounds trendy to me and will probably be less "cool" in a year.

That's a good point about aging.

Problem: as technology advances you tat would be obsolete in a couple of years. MP3 will no longer be made, miss my 45 and 33 1/3 records, 8 tracks and cassettes are gone. Got a VCR player? So in a few years you tat would like like a drunk with Parkinson's did the work.

You can still get a record player. Vinyl is making a comeback. Outsold cds (or maybe downloads) last year.

Not 45 rpm or 78's. I still have two RCA Victrola's. My VCR, an 8 track player, a CD player, a rotary phone with a curly wire. Vinyl is purer the digital. I heard they are dropping MP3 for AAC format. Soon CD will be gone.
I converted my 8mm film to VCR then VCR to CD, then CD to Flash Drive. Those Tat's will be signal beam from outer space in a few.

I do have a stereo record player for my oldies but Goodies. Now it'sPandora and I ❤️ Radio.

Sure you can still get 45's. Pearl Jam puts out their Christmas songs and their singles on 45's. People like vinyl because it's a pure form of music.

8 track wasn't around for very long before cassette took over.

You should hear some of my dads old bone cuts. They are from the Soviet days and were smuggled in. Vinyl might be a pure form of music but bone tracks are history! 😁

I have a closet full of Albums and 45's. Years ago I bought an analogue to digital converter that could transfer my vinyl to my PC (c. 2000). Little the Beattle white Album, Momma's and the Poppa's, Platters, etc. still use the CD's today.

In the Soviet days, albums could not be purchased in Russia so people got creative. X-rays were necessary and used, therefore allowed. People set up elaborate ways to smuggle in the recordings and they recorded them on X-rays. Hence the name bone tracks or bone cuts.

This is in Russian but it's fantastic to hear The Beatles Guy imitate Little Richard. It gives some history of the bone cuts. There are subtitles.

That is a piece of history, RT! I saw a story about records made on x-rays on Mysteries At the Museum. Interesting.
