    Dope! The tattoo is cool as hell regardless, the app is just the icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned.

    Pretty cool! Not really for everyone, but I understand the sentimentality driving this

    You got a tattoo of a (pretty useless) qr code… Dude, you could use an qr code and make it stream complete albums from your home server, and you'd even be able to use it on a platform that's actually supported by other people, other devices. Cool party-trick! : "look, i've got this app and when i point my phone at my arm it plays ten seconds of my favourite song." (did you even know your phone could already play your favourite music, like, all by itself???) "Hook it up to the soundsystem, bro, so we can listen to the same ten seconds over and over again, yeah!" And the coolest part of it is, it costs money… and not even once. So cool!!! Why not just have the waveform tattoo'd without the stupid subscrition, take the money you saved and have a nfc tag implanted which directs devices to start playing your music via a music subscription app, so you could hold your arm against a phone or nfc reader hooked to a pc to start playing actual full albums of high quality music. This way the only people that are getting fat of this are the tattoo artists and music artists and not some app developer that clearly is taking advantage of you. Look, it's a cool tattoo and all, but just leave it at that and when someone asks about it just launch spotify or whatever and listen to the full song…. much better

    People over the internet will no doubt tell you how “stupid” this is, but it’s your body and if it means something to you then that’s all that matters.

    So, if I understand this correctly, the app matches the pattern with the one you uploaded and just plays that part of the song. It doesn't actually play the soundwaves. So this is a fancy QR code, for which you have to pay $40 to activate and $10 per year for the subscription. A cool party trick, but disappointing once you know how it works.
