NFC tattoo over implant?
I have zero tattoos or piercings/implants. I will be getting an xNT implanted shortly. I had kicked around the idea of having the NFC logo tattooed over it. Not even sure why, but hell, I can't even explain to people why I'm getting the xNT either. I guess it seems amusing, a conversation starter, and an extra F-you to the anti-RFID people. So two questions...
Would there be some danger in doing the tat after the implant? I have no idea how deep the implant sits, or how deep the tattoo needle goes.
What's your opinion on doing it at all. Feel free to tell me I'm an idiot if you feel that way.
I would suggest airing on the side of caution. Personally I would not do an implant then tattoo just Incase the needle does contact it or move the implant while getting the tattoo. I would get the tattoo let it heal then implant it. Less things can go wrong this way. The obvious one is migration.
Where are you considering this?
What size is the logo?
Is it in a spot where there will be less or no migration (spots you work less)?
Have you considered if you were to try and remove the tat?
Laser removal is the most effective and common route...could that damage the chip?
Maybe you want to cover that tat up instead. Now your back to the maybe it could be damaged by a needle or overzealous tattoo artist. Every one of them sets the needle a little differently so yes you get a similar outcome but it's not gonna be EXACTLY the same depth.
These are some things to try and consider.
Again the choice is ultimately yours and there really can't be a bad answer just things to consider.
I've seen this kind of idea before and I would really think about if you want to tattoo on top of your xNT..
Why not slightly above it?
Due to xNTs being really small, you mostly have to find a sweet spot on the NFC of on any phone to get it to work perfectly.
I've seen the NFC tattoo's mostly just "above" the xNT, slightly more towards the index fingerbone.
Maybe that's an idea, or maybe this will help you as an idea ( It's Tom from Utrecht )
I want to get a symbol tattoo on my shoulder like this:
And I'd like to be able to unlock my phone plus anything else from an implant there.
Should I also look into implanting on my hand?
I know holding my phone to my shoulder isn't the most efficient way to unlock my phone but it's aesthetically and thematically pleasing to me.
I might even (if I can) set it to not require the reader at all times because security isn't a huge issue for me.
I just like the idea of the implant.
