A tattoo will – tell the Condition of your Heart – count your Heart Beat – tap your Pulse Rate – analyse your Sweat – monitor Glucose/Sugar level – reveal the secrets of your health. These electronic sensors are soft, flexible and lightweight, making it easy to monitor the parameters non-invasively without requiring bulky machinery. These sensors are usually made from thin, flexible and electrically conductive 2D materials such as graphene. Tattoo sensors are more comfortable for users compared to existing wearable gadgets and can be easily transferred on the skin. This method of designing wearable sensors provides a more accurate alternative to other techniques such as inkjet printing and stamping. It is also rapid, less expensive and can easily be scaled up. Such sensors have the potential to become useful for medical diagnostics and related applications.
