Created by The Mill in London , 2020

The Impossible Tattoo is the world’s first-ever remote tattoo, powered by T-Mobile’s 5G technology. Although impressive from a marketing perspective, this technology has many potential use cases in a post covid social distancing world. A robot arm, controlled by a tattoo artist in another location, placed a tattoo onto human skin in real-time via 5G. Firstly they needed to work out how to track the tattoo artist's movements and detect when he was making contact with the surface of a fake practice arm and transmit this data over the network. Secondly, they developed a robotic platform that could receive this data in realtime and control the robot's movements in relation to the human arm. After a series of tests on vegetables and prosthetic skin samples, Dutch actress and TV personality Stijn Fransen successfully received the world’s first 5G tattoo.
