Think Tattoos Are Taboo? What If They Could Track Your Health? Read This! by Joy Stephenson-Laws JD
Soon your tattoo may not only celebrate you as an individual but also track your individual health needs. Called the DermalAbyss project, a type of tattoo ink is utilized with biosensors that changes colors when glucose and pH levels fluctuate inside the body. The pH sensors change between purple and pink, and the glucose sensors change between blue and brown.
So far, the tattoos have only been tested on pig skin and are awaiting human trials, but researchers are hopeful and say the results look promising. If these health-tracking tattoos become safe and available to humans, this could drastically improve the quality of life for diabetics. If diabetics could have a glucose monitoring tattoo, all they would have to do is look at the color of their tattoo. This would make it easier to travel, cause less interruptions during working hours and be less painful.
Enjoy your healthy life!
