I love my tattoo and get compliments and questions about it all the time. But rarely does the app ever play my tattoo's audio clip. I will log out, log back in, always update, restart my phone, use mobile data, try wifi, etc. The app rarely ever works and it is very disappointing and embarrassing. More people would get these if it actually worked when I tried to show it off!

No longer works. Have had 3 years. Had no problems untill they took my last payment. Also can not get a response from anyone about the issue. This was so awesome when it was working. It breaks my heart to know i paid for a service that I will probably never be able to use again. Have tried reaching out to skin motion several times. Each time getting the same generated message with. No anwsers or help to get my service working.

This app is a joke. Can't make an account on the actual website for one, it just never sends the confirmation email. For two they have a button in the app to contact customer support that doesn't actually do anything. None of the artists are reputable and there are hundreds of people that these 'artists' have failed because even after getting the tattoo there's an 80 percent chance the app won't even read it correctly. Don't waste your time with these hacks
