Gadget Makes Music by Scanning an Arm Tattoo

ut_musictattoo_f

by HANNA TRUDO Dmitry Morozov’s tattoo isn’t just about looks, it’s about sound. The Moscow-based artist has a hefty 8- by 3-inch barcode stretching down his left forearm, and when he scans it with the right gadget: music. Morozov grew up studying guitar and is a self-taught engineer. “I wanted to combine two passions—electronic music and robotics—and I already had tattoos,” he says. Morozov created the barcode in Photoshop and modded a scanner with two black-line sensors, a stepper motor, and a Nintendo Wii remote. As the motor guides the sensors along his tat, the length of each bar dictates the duration of the sound; if he moves his arm, the Wii’s accelerometer detects the shift and distorts the tone. It’s a little … monotonic, and not everyone is impressed—many Russians associate tattoos with criminal culture. But Morozov is determined to change their minds. “I try to explain the theory and technology of the art and body, and then most people respond positively,” he says. Sounds like progress.

Japanese Tattoos as Fine Art

By Liz Ohanesian Source: www.laweekly.com On Saturday afternoon, four tattoo artists went to work inside Little Tokyo’s Japanese American National Museum for the opening of “Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in the Modern World.” They spent hours taking ink and needles to flesh, adding to the large, detailed illustrations that already marked their client’s bodies. Crowds gathered and dispersed throughout the day, watching with interest. Most seemed unfazed by the buzz of tattoo machines. Many of the onlookers here have gone through a similar process. Some had tattooed sleeves that crawled out from under t-shirts. Others had art that peeked out above collar lines or below hems. Instead, it was two of those tattoo artists working in silence at their stations who could provoke a wince from the crowd. They were practicing tebori. That’s the traditional Japanese way of applying tattoos. In other words, they were using equipment that wasn’t motorized. The artists dipped their instruments into ink before poking repeatedly at patches of skin on their clients. One lay on his back, an arm crossed over his eyes. His stomach moved with breaths that grew deeper as the prodding persisted. Another remained still on his stomach. From certain angles, you could catch the tension creases form on his face. Tebori is an old-fashioned way of tattooing, but it’s not antiquated. Takahiro Kitamura, known as Horitaka in tattoo circles, is the curator of “Perseverance.” He notes that there are still plenty of tebori practitioners at work. Many of them choose to ... Read More »
