Design for a fictitious app about tattoos. Concept: Every tattoo tells a story, share yours. The app is based on an Instagram model, adding further features such as a map of where a tattoo have been done and a 'body map'. A library of subjects allows users to discover the meaning of a particular subject and shows similar artworks. Finally, tattoo shops and studios can display their works and can be rated by users who had their tattoos done there. Read Less

DESCRIPTION
This project displays some layouts and promotional idea for a fictitious app about tattoos.
The whole project is developed from the concept that 'Every tattoo tells a story', your own story, marked with ink on your skin. Hence, why not to share your 'ink' as you share your everyday life with Facebook, Instagram etc?

The app is based on Instagram model, adding further features such as a map of where you had you tattoos done and a 'body scheme'.
A library of subjects allows you to discover the meaning of a particular tattoo, shows you other users' similar artworks.
Finally, tattoo shops and studios can display their works and can be rated by users who had their tattoos done there.
PERSONAL NOTE
As a tattoo lover myself, I can see how this idea can be perceived as horrible by some people.
I am perfectly aware that tattoos and body modifications are part of a culture and a lifestyle, and not just fashion, I agree that this whole subject belongs to a personal sphere rather then to a social one.
For this reasons, this project must be considered more like a style-exercise than a real application proposal.
I wanted to play with icons and layouts and I chose a topic whose aesthetic universe I know and like.
