Artist Dmitry Morozov (or ::vtol:: as he is also known), turns his tattoo into an experimental music instrument for his project Reading My Body.

Using a piece of metal railing fitted with a black line sensor and various other technologies, Morozov has managed to create a strange new digital instrument that reads the lines of his tattoo and translates them into almost alien-sounding notes and chords. Utilising the motion capabilities of a Wii controller, he has also allowed the instrument to make further noises when his arm is moved. 

So far it has only been used on his very specifically designed piece of body art, but it would be fascinating to see what would result if run over a full sleeve.
