Braille Tatoos


Nothing wrong with a bit of fun. That is why we also want to share Klara Jirkova’s (UdK, Berlin) idea of the Braille Tatoos with you.
And here is, how Jirkova describes the realization:

“implants creating embossed text in braille placed under skin, can be read by touch / stroke by blind people. it could be either bead-style implants (in this case the size of the beads should be a bit bigger than the standardized size of braille text. too small beads will sink in the muscles and they will not be embossed) or transdermal implants – placed partially below and partially above the skin
the implants are made of silicone (or surgical grade stainless steel /316L/ or titanium)”.
