In general it’s not a good idea to tattoo directly overtop of an implant. The depth the tattoo needles reach under the skin is not precisely controllable and the risk of damaging the implant is pretty high. Here’s an interesting video from

Is that something I need to worry about when getting tattooed? I know that in theory the ink is placed between the layers of skin, and my implant is underneath my skin…but I just don’t wanna find out the hard way that the needle can rea…
I’m considering getting the Ultron kit (NExT & VivoKey Spark). These will be my first implants. Just had a couple of questions:
How close can I implant the two chips? At what distance from each other will they start interfering? I was planning on putting the NExT on the centre of my right wrist about two or three centimetres down from the joint (similar location to the image shown below, except right arm), and the VivoKey at the same location but on the other side (outside) of the arm. Ar…
Long time no post! Just dropping by to say I got a white ink tattoo on my hand over the place I got my NExT implant!

Sending much love and good vibes to you all!
