Chicago Singer Tattoos Voicemail From Late Grandmother Over Her Heart, Plays It Through Cellphone

A Chicago woman found a touching way to hear the voice of her late grandmother. Sakyrah Angelique Morris tattooed the waveform of a voicemail from her late grandmother over her heart, and it plays back through her cellphone.

According to a viral tweet that she posted on Tuesday (Jan. 2), the singer-songwriter’s grandmother died when she was in high school.

“My grandma passed away my junior year of high school,” she tweeted. “A month before she passed, she left me a voicemail wishing me happy birthday. Today I got that exact waveform tattooed across my heart, and I am able to play it just by holding my camera over it.”

The technology is possible through the app Skin Motion, which can play up to 30 seconds of soundwave tattoos through mobile phones and tablets.

According to a well-informed Twitter user, the application isn’t exactly reading the message from her skin, but rather “stores an image of the waveform” and plays it from an audio file.
