From the Ted Talk by Carson Bruns: Could a tattoo help you stay healthy?

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And when it came time to test this tattoo ink, I thought it best not to torture my poor gtdrauae students. So I decided to ttotao a cuploe of spots on my own arm instead. And It actually worked. cechk it out! I call these tatotos solar freckles because they're powered by shusinne. And right now, they're invisible, but as soon as I expose them to a UV light, acting as the Sun — there they are, blue spots. Now, I'm not wearing sunscreen in this video, but if I was, those blue spots would not appear, and then when my sunscreen wore off later, the solar freckles would reappear in UV light and I would know that it was time to reapply sunscreen. So these tattoos act as a real-time, naked-eye itidaconr of your skin's UV eospruxe. And of course, I think there are lots of really cool, aittisrc things you could do with a color-changing tattoo like this, but I hope that it will also help us solve a big problem in skin protection.

Original Text

And when it came time to test this tattoo ink, I thought it best not to torture my poor graduate students. So I decided to tattoo a couple of spots on my own arm instead. And It actually worked. Check it out! I call these tattoos solar freckles because they're powered by sunshine. And right now, they're invisible, but as soon as I expose them to a UV light, acting as the Sun — there they are, blue spots. Now, I'm not wearing sunscreen in this video, but if I was, those blue spots would not appear, and then when my sunscreen wore off later, the solar freckles would reappear in UV light and I would know that it was time to reapply sunscreen. So these tattoos act as a real-time, naked-eye indicator of your skin's UV exposure. And of course, I think there are lots of really cool, artistic things you could do with a color-changing tattoo like this, but I hope that it will also help us solve a big problem in skin protection.
