Are you a tattoo maniac, and a music lover too? Do not miss this piece of information.

One tattoo artist has gone beyond just the art. He has taken that body modification to an extra sensory dimension - a new project that allows people to make music from tattoos.

The project uses rail-mounted sensors that crawl across the skin to read a tattoo that resembles a barcode.

The notes and instructions for the sensors are inked into flesh.

The project, called Reading my Body has been created by a Russian visual artist Dmitry Morozov, said media reports.

"The sensors can move on their own or be controlled manually, meaning each tattoo is not limited to just one score," said a report in Ubergizmo.

It means that tattoes are there forever but you are not forced to listen to the same music over and over again!
