Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Green, Red and Black Tattoo Dot

miniscule markings magnified

That may look like a multicoloured mole between her breasts, but it’s really a tiny tattoo. Using her accompanying magnifying glass necklace pendant, anyone can discern that the 5 mm smudge is a perfectly miniaturized Harley Davidson logo.

This fashion trend is spreading fast. You may see a guy with a navel pierced crystal glass that magnifies the teeny tribal tattoo encircling his belly button, or what looks like a beauty mark on a girl’s lip, but blown up to a heart and flowers by her nose wing-hung magnifying jewellery.

The intricate tattoos are applied by skilled artists via special microscopes and are sold together with ornaments to show off the result. Each magnifying bauble comes with a gold or silver cover to eliminate burns in the sun.

       They won't last too long and they come off easily and they need people to be up close to see them. It's good. +

       And she will have personalised rice crispies for breakfast with her name on them.

       I can now recognise a FarmerJohn idea just from the title. Must have been hanging around here too long. Have a microbun.

       Have a mural of micro tattoos which depict a larger picture. With many many many many many many many many many many many smaller pictures you could get some pretty rockin' resolution.

       Tattoo resolution is limited by the skin structure, not just by the size of a needle. Short of implanting a piece of material with the image you want, I don't think this can be done as a lasting picture.
