Maybe you just know tattoo is something being used to draw on the skin for Showing up your extraordinary nature. But i have to tell you that things are varying with time ,especially fashion. However, great inventors combine fashion with science in order to make the more customers accept the new products.
Google is exploring the concept of an electronic skin tattoo that could embed a microphone and lie detector into a user's neck. Google's Motorola Mobility filed an application last week with the U.S. Patent Office for a method of pairing the tattoos with mobile devices, bringing technology closer to us than ever before.

The patent, titled "Coupling an Electronic Skin Tattoo to a Mobile Communication Device," explains that the device would sit on the user's neck and serve as a supplemental phone microphone. With its close proximity to a user's mouth, the tattoo would cut down calls' background noise and produce clearer audio.
Equipped with a transceiver, the device would allow for wireless communication with a paired mobile device; this means voice commands on your phone would get even easier, without the need to press a "talk" button before speaking.
The tattoo can also be used as a lie-detector test. The patent says the device will have a "galvanic skin response detector to detect skin resistance of a user" and explains that a user who is nervous or telling a lie might have a different skin-related response than someone who is confident and telling the truth.
The patent application explains that the tattoo could run on a rechargeable battery or "employ solar panel technology, capacitive technology, nanotechnology or electro-mechanical technology."
The document doesn't cover how the tattoo would be applied, but it does mention that embedding it into a "collar or band that would be worn around the throat" is an option for those who don't like the idea of electronic-to-skin contact. The oddest part of the patent: The word "remove" doesn't show up at all in the document.
Motorola Mobility denied comment about the filing.
