Requiring a specialised technique, not everyone can create this art on your body. After all, the ink is as special as the sound. He says, \"Soundwave was a new technology in the USA and we are the first ones to understand the concept, gain expertise and bring it over to India. All you need is a recording that can be anywhere between 5-20 seconds long with no or minimal background noise. We also make sure that it is done on a flat surface of the skin as the app will not be able to read the tattoo if it is wrapping around the arm or on a curved surface.\"

How does it work?

While Lokesh admits that his tattoo parlour ends up getting umpteen calls regarding the whats and whys of sound wave tattoo, he is happy to answer them all. After all, it isn't rocket science, he says!

In a nutshell, it begins with your audio file getting uploaded on the Skin Motion app, which then generates a visual representation of it aka the sound wave. Once you get it inked on your body, you can scan the tattoo to play the audio whenever you want!

So, are you ready to hear your tattoo sing? 

","body_with_product_for_feed":"

Your favourite song, the way bae calls your name or just a tune that gives your *feels* - we all have sounds or words that are truly special to us. 

\r\n\r\n

So, it comes as no surprise that some of us want to hold on to the memory of the sounds that we hold dear. You may record it or play it on a loop but another cool way to do just that is by getting it inked on your body!

\r\n\r\n

\"soundwave

\r\n\r\n

Yep, sound wave tattoos are just that. It is when you convert your favourite tunes or recordings into sound waves and get it inked. So then, all you need to do when you feel like visiting that memory again is to scan the sound wave art on your body and play it. 

\r\n\r\n

What EXACTLY is this?

\r\n\r\n

 \"I feel that sound wave tattoos are like a coded message that no one else will know but, whenever you feel like hearing that sound you can just scan the tattoo and play it back. Just for your ears,\" says Lokesh Verma, founder at Devil'z Tattooz and one of the pioneers of the trend in the country.

For them, it is glamour, looks and all things above the surface. This misconception that the fashion industry is shallow, materialistic, narcissistic, and even harmful is deep-rooted. But thankfully as people become more aware about the intricacies of this industry, this stereotype is slowing fading away. \r\n\r\nToday, fashion is not just responsible, it is also ethical, clean and respectful to the planet. It is woke, sustainable, and now vegan. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nSay hello to FOReT Cork, a vegan fashion accessories brand that is PETA-approved and is made with natural materials that are earth-friendly. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThe brand endorses sustainable philosophies at every stage of production using elements from Mother Earth, allowing the materials to showcase the grains and strands of nature. Every design reflects on the ethos of the environment: simple, diverse and yet sophisticated. The primary material used is Cork, which is developed from the bark of Cork Oak tree that grows in abundance in the Mediterranean region. The Cork tree is harvested every 9 years by gently removing the bark. This causes no harm and allows the tree to rejuvenate and it can live up to another 100 years! The Cork material retains the structure of the bark and is visually attractive and extremely soft. Polyester and PU materials are used in handbags depending on the design, ensuring that the usage of these materials is not more than 2%. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nView this post on Instagram\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhat better day for us to celebrate #sustainability that #WorldEnvironmentDay ? Our choice of working with cork fabric comes from a place of love for mother nature. The Cork fabric is produced by harvesting the outer bark оf the cork oak tree that grows abundantly in the Mediterranean region. This doesn't harm but allows the tree to grow naturally and it may even live up to 100 years! The Cork fabric retains the structure of the bark and is visually appealing, extremely soft, light and water resistant making it a perfect accompaniment for years to come. #sustainablefashion #instafashion #europe #jewelry #bags #accessories #feelbetter #sustainable #green #necklaces #earth #french #inspiration #instagram #instagramers #worldenvironmentday #worldenvironmentday2019\r\n\r\nA post shared by FOReT®️ Sustainable Fashion (@foret.store) on Jun 5, 2019 at 5:23am PDT\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nStyle and elegance come together with fine craftsmanship creating a timeless product.

Why It’s Time to Go Beyond Sustainable Fashion ","field_dek":"This new year, rethink your wardrobe with PECKD - India’s first fully compostable fashion brand \r\n","modified":"2020-01-09 11:53:20","status":"1","field_full_dek":"As consumers become more and more aware of climate change consequences, they are consciously tweaking their lifestyle choices to reduce their carbon footprint. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWhich is why the conversation around sustainable fashion has gained momentum and it is gradually moving from being niche to mainstream.  \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHowever, with the onset of the year 2020, it is time to make new fashion resolutions and think beyond sustainable fashion. It is time to think about fashion that is compostable. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIndia’s first fashion brand – PECKD - is taking that step of going beyond being merely sustainable to being compostable. The first pedestal to this was creating a fully compostable fashion collection. Everything about PECKD’s collection is not just biodegradable but 100% compostable. From the fabric to the thread and even the buttons, everything decomposes when buried in moist soil. None of the PECKD designer wear has plastic, rubber or metal in any form. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThe brand is driven to create style statements for the eco-conscious fashion lovers. The end goal is simple but ambitious - to create an opportunity to make fashion add value to the environment, however small.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nPECKD started this journey with its first-ever collection Delta & Dawn – Power Dressing for the Corporate Woman. Each piece of this collection is named after and inspired by the humpback whales. The collection itself is named after the famous humpback whale duo that created history in the waters of Sacramento Delta River. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis mother-daughter pair swam inshore into the freshwaters of Sacramento after being deeply wounded at sea by motorboats. This is the farthest any humpback whale has swum inland or towards us humans. The rescue teams could not get close to the pair, so had to use dart guns to administer antibiotics to heal the wounds of the whales. It was two years later, after continual efforts by both the whales and the humans, that mother and daughter were healthy enough to swim back to the sea. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDelta & Dawn is an ode to the fight for the survival of these whales. It is inspired by their resilience, their resolve and their love for freedom. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nApostrophe:\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nApostrophe is the signature piece of the Delta & Dawn collection. Named after one of the humpback whales that swim about 2000 miles every year to spend a little time at the sanctuary, Apostrophe celebrates her fortitude and freedom.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nHandcrafted using compostable silk, this skirt and blazer combination takes a period of 10 days to finish. The pleated details inspired by the dorsal grooves of the humpback whale add character and definition to this power statement.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nTough but graceful, Apostrophe will never bear the shame and regret of ending up in a landfill. Once it has served its purpose, Apostrophe will decompose within 180 days when buried in moist soil. This compost holds the potential to recreate a new life; a new idea born from Apostrophe.\r\n\r\n  \r\n\r\nHitesha Deshpande, Founder, PECKD, says that it is the first of its kind fashion label that is fully compostable from fabric to thread to buttons. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThis new year, get PECKD - a powerful style statement for the eco-conscious. \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, cosmopolitan.in, fashion, sustainable fashion,

Wait...You Can Now HEAR Your Tattoos With this New Body Art Trend

Sound wave tattoos let you capture all your special sounds..from your bae saying something cute to your dog’s bark.

Your favourite song, the way bae calls your name or just a tune that gives your *feels* - we all have sounds or words that are truly special to us. 

So, it comes as no surprise that some of us want to hold on to the memory of the sounds that we hold dear. You may record it or play it on a loop but another cool way to do just that is by getting it inked on your body!

soundwave tattoos

Yep, sound wave tattoos are just that. It is when you convert your favourite tunes or recordings into sound waves and get it inked. So then, all you need to do when you feel like visiting that memory again is to scan the sound wave art on your body and play it. 

What EXACTLY is this?

 "I feel that sound wave tattoos are like a coded message that no one else will know but, whenever you feel like hearing that sound you can just scan the tattoo and play it back. Just for your ears," says Lokesh Verma, founder at Devil'z Tattooz and one of the pioneers of the trend in the country.

Requiring a specialised technique, not everyone can create this art on your body. After all, the ink is as special as the sound. He says, "Soundwave was a new technology in the USA and we are the first ones to understand the concept, gain expertise and bring it over to India. All you need is a recording that can be anywhere between 5-20 seconds long with no or minimal background noise. We also make sure that it is done on a flat surface of the skin as the app will not be able to read the tattoo if it is wrapping around the arm or on a curved surface."

How does it work?

While Lokesh admits that his tattoo parlour ends up getting umpteen calls regarding the whats and whys of sound wave tattoo, he is happy to answer them all. After all, it isn't rocket science, he says!

In a nutshell, it begins with your audio file getting uploaded on the Skin Motion app, which then generates a visual representation of it aka the sound wave. Once you get it inked on your body, you can scan the tattoo to play the audio whenever you want!

So, are you ready to hear your tattoo sing?
