Man gets audio tattoo of voicemail from late grandmother

LOS ANGELES, California -- People are now getting tattoos that can speak to them thanks to a Los Angeles startup.

For some, it's a chance to keep a forever message from a loved one who has died.

Here's how it works: You upload any sound clip to an app called Skin Motion.

An artist then takes the soundwave from the app and makes a tattoo.

If you scan the tattoo with the app, the audio clip is played.

For one man, he was able to turn a voicemail from his grandmother who recently passed away into a tattoo.

The designs can be made up from any recorded sounds.
