Obsessive Ink Launches the World's First Tattoo Preview Website Using Ultra High Quality 3D Avatar Technology From Evolver™

Available as Free Trial for One Week to First 10,000 www.obsessiveink.com Site Visitors

NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA and ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) -  Obsessive Ink today announced the launch of the world's first tattoo preview website using 3D technology from Evolver that provides users with a full 3D virtual representation of a tattoo on their body. As part of the launch Obsessive Ink is offering a free trial of the service for one week, from today until midnight PDT, April 22, 2010 by using the code inklaunch

Bringing together the latest in 3D web technology and one of the oldest forms of art in human history, Obsessive Ink caters to all tattoo enthusiasts -- even first timers. Obsessive Ink's site provides an easy to use online platform allowing consumers to create realistic 3D avatars by uploading a passport style photo. Once an avatar is generated users can upload multiple tattoo designs that can be customized and positioned anywhere on the avatar's body. 

With this system any jpeg image can be uploaded and previewed as a tattoo. Whether it's a photo of a family member, favorite sporting team or famous piece of art, users can resize their design, rotate it or incorporate additional elements until they are completely satisfied with the results.

"Users can experience a complete 360-degree view of their new tattoo and even export to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other social media sites to get the opinion of friends and family before making a lifelong decision," said Josh Mackey, Obsessive Ink CEO. "Our aim is to give customers creative control of the tattoo process, helping them to make an informed decision and have greater confidence when entering the tattoo studio."

Brian Nilles, CEO of Darwin Dimensions, the makers of Evolver, said, "The Obsessive Ink application is a very creative and valuable use of our technology, and exhibits Evolver's flexibility as a white label product for clients who can benefit from customizable Avatars. We're also glad to be part of a movement providing consumers with the tools to help avoid regrettable decisions while also dramatically improving the connection between their creative vision, the tattoo artist and a permanent piece of artwork."
