The population of people with tattoos has kept growing worldwide, and it is estimated that in the United States alone, $1. billion is spent annually on tattoos. The Need There is need to ensure that the design of a tattoo looks good on a virtual skin before it is inscribed on a skin permanently. This is to ensure that no errors are made since it is hard to remedy. The colour too has to be selected and other considerations. The solution The solution is to ink on a virtual skin, assess it before it is inked permanently on a person’s skin. This enables one to make the right choices that he or she can live with and never regret. My idea I intend to develop and incorporate into our current website a realistic 3D human character/avatar which customers can put their tattoo design ideas onto, to visualise and adequately plan their body art before it is etched on them forever. Forecast usage The target is to get the maximum possible daily views; approximately 2 million monthly views. I will do a proper search engine and social network marketing to ensure this. How profit is generated The business will generate revenue by etching tattoos on customers directly. Part of the income will be used to pay off the running costs such as rent of the premises and maintenance costs. Profits will be obtained from the difference in the revenue generated and the operational costs. Software Development I am in contact with software developers who will develop the base software I intend to use.
