Awesome idea, but app needs some development...

What an awesome idea. Got my tattoo artist registered and everything worked out great. I think the app could use some work, however. It seems to take quite a while to load. Would be nice if it could somehow read the wave faster. Could just be my phone... Also, the ability to change the color of the waveform while viewing would be a nice option. Lastly, I wish the format and the design was a bit sleeker! Maybe an option to change the loading screen and camera screen to just black borders?

I hope you guys continue to work on this app! Totally glad I came across it :)

I have a piece of Mom with me all the time!

My mom passed away in May 2019. I knew I had a voicemail from her and I thought this system was amazing! There wasn’t a registered artist in my area, but I bought the subscription and had the tattoo made from the template I received from skin motion. Tattoo finished and picture uploaded. I got the activation email and tested my tattoo and it worked flawlessly. This tat is deeply personal and my unique way of remembering my mom! Thanks SkinMotion!

Ok when it’s working

Haven’t had my tattoo for even a year and my app is already not working. It somehow lost the image of my tattoo and now won’t work. I’m talking with customer service about this issue but so far no resolution. Luckily my tattoo itself is an amazing design so even if it doesn’t play ever again I still love it, but since this is why I went with the soundwave tattoo idea (to actually be able to play it) I’m going to be upset if I can’t actually do that. So far not pleased.
