Tattoo information is widely available on many different platforms that include social networking sites, blogs, and apps. However, there is no single resource available that helps people plan a tattoo from start to finish. In our research, we found that tattoo planning challenges include finding the right style of a tattoo, finding an artist/tattoo shop, and booking an appointment with an artist.
Our team investigated the process of how people have planned or are planning their tattoos with a series of observations, interviews and surveying. This resulted in developing design implications for a technology-based tool that will assist people in their tattoo planning process.
My Role: All team members took part in analyzing all parts of the project as well as equally contributing written content for a final report. My individual contributions to this project include: conducted an observation and an interview, setup and created Stormboard content, created flow diagrams to show search/explore/selection process from our observation analysis, assisted in the creation of spectrums and personas, assembled user survey using Qualtrics, produced user scenarios, provided written content for Conclusions section of our final report (including Implications for Design and Limitations and Future Work sections.)
