This creepy tarantula tattoo will scare off arachnophobes out there

Posted by Disha Singh on January 29, 2015

Spider is an intriguing predator known for weaving complex webs and immense patience while awaiting their prey. Many people across the globe get their bodies inked with spider tattoos for its symbolic meaning for creativity, patience and wisdom. Likewise, the tarantula tattoo on leg also symbolizes the same. Although, it is the creepiest tattoo to scare of any arachnophobe, but clearly shows the wearer’s love towards eight-legged invertebrates. Tattoo artist Tamas Dikac from Hungary has inked this incredible tattoo design on the person’s leg. I am really amazed by this realistic tattoo design that seems as if the creepy crawler is waiting patiently to attack its prey any moment. I wonder how the person’s friends who are scared of spiders react after seeing this unusual creature on his leg. Moreover, the beautiful detailing of the tattoo represents the artist’s fine talent to bring life into his unusual skin art. Spare a thought about this eerie tattoo design.

Hi-Tech Tattoo to test Type 1 diabetes

Posted by admin on June 3, 2010

Several pricks into your finger to track your blood sugar level can be little painful but more a hassle. You might sometime wish for a machine which could be attached to your body and immediately detects your glucose level. Chemical engineers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are working on carbon nanotubes that could be injected under the skin to reveal blood glucose levels. Paul Barone and Prof. Michael Strano are working on a new type of blood glucose monitor that could not only eliminate the need for finger pricks but also offer more accurate readings. Strano and Barone’s sensing system consists of a "tattoo" that's designed to detect glucose, the nanotubes are wrapped in a polymer that is sensitive to glucose concentrations. A wearable device roughly the size of a wristwatch shines infrared light through the skin and onto the nanotubes, which fluoresce when in contact with glucose, thus displaying the patient’s glucose level. The researchers plan to
