    Had a thought about this over the weekend.

    Coal-tar soap is an old-fashioned (and somewhat smelly...) soap that people use for a variety of reasons. One side effect of using this soap is that it increases your skin's sensitivity to the sun.

    SO... here we have an accelerator for "skin prints"!

    Yes, I woke up Saturday morning, wrote that down and then went back to bed in hopes of having another one of my "1-million-Yen" ideas.

    Unfortunately no more came forth, and so I just stared at my ceiling for the remainder of the weekend... God I'm lonely...

    Despite Bob's criticism, I had another thought about this...

    If the negative material was highly flexible and sticky, you could adhere it really well to your skin and get good contact so that one could actually come away with a decent image by the end of the day. Maybe it could be a thin collodion "stripping film", that after processing could be stripped off its base, wetted and plastered onto your skin. The same idea could potentially work with gelatin. You could "fix" your image by applying a liberal amount of high SPF sunscreen.

    Thinking about matching H&D curves to your skin's burning "curve" is rather amusing...

    or you would increase the chance to be cancer with contacting your skin with plastic and than overheat the contact zone.

    why a digital negative? if a digital files perhaps a tatoo machine that tatoo your back from an image file.

    A modified plotter, with tattoo head(s) instead of pens would work......reminds me of that story by Kafka.
