While you can use it from pranking your parents by putting a fake tattoo on your picture to scare your parent, the augmented reality app was created to allow you to see how a tattoo would look on any part of your body. Therefore, you can judge the resulting aesthetic before visiting the tattoo parlor to getting permanently inked with it.

When you are ready to use the InkHunter app, you will first choose a design that you want to try on from the collection on the app or take a photo of the tattoo flash that you want to use. From there, you will be asked to draw markers on the body parts where you want the tattoo to appear. Once that is done, you simply focus the phone’s camera on the marked body part, which will appear on the screen with the tattoo overlaid on it. Thanks to its three-dimensional rendering, the tattoo will curve and conform to the shape of your body, making it look very real.
