About the Project

The process of getting a tattoo can be intimidating, especially if it’s your first. A user must do research on designs or styles, locate artists nearby, and find a tattoo studio to book appointments. The current websites and applications out there do not meet the needs of the user in totality. Most apps have an AR function or a blogging/sharing artwork capability. My task was to provide an easy-to-use and understand tattoo application for new tattoo clients, former tattoo enthusiasts, artists, and tattoo studios.

Possible Problems

“Our users need a way to go from choosing a tattoo to finding the right place to go for a tattoo with ease because although convinced already s/he wants a tattoo, the idea of doing something permanent is already an intense process physically and mentally.”
