UK's First Projection Tattoo Parlour Coming To London
Rachel Riley fooled Twitter followers with her projection tattoo.

Ever fancied getting a tattoo but not quite taken the plunge? Not sure which design you'd settle for? Help is at hand.

Illuminated Ink is a projection tattoo parlour, coming to Soho for just two days. Members of the public can drop by and have designs mapped onto their skin using just light projection, meaning you can try out that design you've always fancied, without the commitment of permanence if it doesn't go quite to plan.

It's a publicity stunt by laptop maker Lenovo, who were behind Countdown host Rachel Riley's April Fool tattoo prank.

Tattoos will be designed by London tattooist James King, but you can submit your own design ideas on Facebook.

Illuminated Ink Tattoo Parlour by Lenovo will be at 15 Bateman Street 22-23 April, 11am-5pm. It's free to take part.

If tattoos are your thing, check out Museum of London's current Tattoo London exhibition.
