Ink Hunter uses augmented reality to preview a design of the application that can save the user from the bad tattoo. This idea was developed in the year 2014 by three Ukrain students. User can choose from designs by artists or upload your own sketches. User need to draw three ink marks where they envisioned the tattoo and the application will directly generate the preview. It is also available for download in the app store or Google play.
Ink Hunter is essentially the fitting room for tattoos. Users draw a smiley face on their arm, which acts as a marker for the app to identify. With that in sight, the app is able to keep track of the spot so users can move their phone around the prospective area where the tattoo would go to see it from every possible angle.
Designs for the virtual tattoo can be chosen from the included gallery or sketched and uploaded into the app. If you can draw it, you can see what it would look like inked to your skin.
It’s a simple process for the person who wants to see what their tattoo would look like. The algorithms are used to create a transparent image from a black-and-white one, recognize the location of the handwritten smile on skin, and overlay the tattoo in as realistic a manner as possible.
