Free tattoos for everyone!? Sign me up!

Ugh, if only there was a way to check yourself before you wreck yourself by getting a tattoo that'll be on your skin forever. Wait! There is! And it's a brand new app called Ink Hunter. And it's about to be your new obsession.

The new app has an algorithm that lets you place virtual tattoos onto your body without even stepping foot out of the house or spending any money. It basically lets you try before you buy, saving you a lifetime of ink related woes. 

All it takes is 4 simple steps: 1) Draw a square smiley face on your arm. That will act as a marker for your fake tattoo. 2) The app will then map the tattoo of your choice to your smiley face - you can sketch your own or select one from the library of intricate designs from actual tattoo artists. 3) Once you've taken the picture, you can move it and edit it to your liking. 4) Save it, 'gram it and send it to your mum.

Guys, they look HELLA REAL.

We LOVE tattoos at PopBuzz... we love 'em, love 'em. But we also feel it's super important to know EXACTLY what you want, and if you want it, before you take the big step. So if you're not that great at drawing on yourself in Sharpie, you NEED this app! 

Literally life changing! Or you know, it's just a really great app to freak out your parents!
