Waveform Tattoo

This design consists of two things that I will always love in my life. Music/Sound and my grandmother. At my grandparents surprise wedding anniversary party in Scotland, my grandmother said the words If I live till Im a hundred, Ill never forget it when she was handed the microphone.

She had cancer and passed away soon afterwards.

Simply, I took the audio wave-form, did some noise reduction so you could see the transients, and then had it tattooed on my fore-arm, with all the words written below.

Please note a couple things:

1. Each word is under the spike in the waveform as you would hear each word being said.

2. And most important is: This is her real voice, taken from the video and put into pro-tools.

    Fantastic idea. I love sentimental and personal meaning behind tattoos because it means there is a story to tell - and I like to talk tats! Looks pretty cool, too.
