Last week I finally snagged a Nintendo 3DS and after playing the augmented reality games, the first thing I thought was “Oh shit, that AR card would make a killer tattoo.” And so this weekend, I got the 3DS AR tattoo and it’s fucking awesome.
The photo above was taken in my bathroom, showing my little Mii popping out of my hand.
Here’s the tattoo just by itself:
And here’s a video of the tattoo in action:
Sorry that it’s jittery… the way I was having to hold my arm and hold the 3DS and look through the viewfinder of the camera meant that my arm was at a slight angle and the 3DS was trying to place it on a flat plane.
Also, a couple things to note if you want to try this. Right now, the tattoo doesn’t always work in really bright light, like sunlight, but it works fine in dim-ish light. I think I need to go back and get an outline around it, because I think the 3DS is looking for the edge of the card and can’t find it in bright light. In the manual, it says to never obscure the white border around the card when you’re using the 3DS, something I didn’t notice til later. I thought the black border around the “?” would be an issue, but it doesn’t seem to be at all. When the 3DS recognizes it, you can clearly see the black outline, and I tested with a color printout of the card, and the issue does seem to be not seeing the edge, which is easily fixable.
The tattoo was done by Colby at Blue Flame Tattoo in Raleigh, NC.
