Hello and welcome to this month’s edition of streetstyle – the attitude guide that yo can’t afford to miss. We here at global style watch the trends. And ask the street: What’s hot? What’s not?
Digittoos – Artificial-looking body alterations are out. Leave those to the sad sods who still rant on about the glorious days when they were “Cyberpunks” in the 2020ies. Today’s look is all about self-evolution. About making a statement of progress right in Darwin’s wrinkled face. At first, I was a little surprised when I discovered that even “old” technologies like Philips’ Electronic Tattoos are now all the rage in the clubs. But like it is often the case with “revamped” tech, it’s not the tech that counts, it’s the style. Continue reading “Cyb3rpunk | Style Trends 2035+”
I’ve talked about tattoos here before, namely on DNA Tattoos and a Genetic Hallmark. That stuff is far future at the moment compared to the electronic tattoo in the vid. Don’t know how much of the vid is fake, but its supposed to be a touch sensitive electronic tattoo. Check out the great and creepy music.
This is the tech Deckert used in Bladerunner to identify the snake…
Hallmark (10,000eb and up)
Also from SLA Industires, Hallmarks are incorporated into a subject’s gene structure and manifest as distinctive tattoos, birthmarks, logos, or other markings on the skin. They are functionally identical to a DNA tattoo, but Hallmarks manifest on the subject’s descendants, rather than on the subject himself. Implanting Hallmarks is an extremely difficult and expensive process (30+, requiring Expert: Genetics to even attempt it). Hallmarks are used to indicate lineage (in the case of genetically optimized corporate families) or place of manufacture (for bioengineered animals). HC=1D6/2, SC=MA.
DNA Tattoos (1000eb and up)
From SLA Industries, the DNA tattoo is a design which has been permanently incorporated into the body’s skin structure. Like a normal tattoo, it becomes a permanent feature of the skin; unlike a normal tattoo, it will regrow if damaged. Extensive or major wounds which cause heavy scarring will distort the tattoos, but simple cuts, scrapes, or burns will not affect the design. Plastic surgery may be able to repair serious damage with a Difficult Med Tech roll. These tattoos require genetic modification and, like Exotic Skinchanges, have a small chance of causing skin cancer (5%). HC=2, SC=M.
