(NBC News) There’s a new story behind most tattoos. But what if your ink could speak for itself? That’s the premise behind soundwave tattoos.

“When they upload that sound to our app the sound gets analyzed and turned into the waveform,” Siggard said.

Users can “hear” the finished tattoo by scanning it with their smartphone camera.

Chris Kelley signed up to be one of the artists to offer soundwave tattoos when ‘Skin Motion’ launches next month.

“You’ve got the look of the tattoo and then when you can scan it and play something that’s personal to that person I think that really adds something to it,” said Tattoo Artist Chris Kelley.
