Hearing Aids with Attitude

hearing aid tattoos

I can’t seem to find time to write anything these days, so here is a Photoshop version of my latest ongoing hearing aid pimping exercise instead. I can’t think of anything better than a nice tattoo to set off a pair of flesh coloured NHS hearing instruments, and I’m hoping they might intimidate those irritating people in shop queues who helpfully insist on poking you on the shoulder from behind, if you don’t move at the speed of Usain Bolt once a till becomes available.

It would appear that, for some people, the sight of hearing aids in a queue can bring out the same primitive instinct as the sight of a caravan ahead on the road; they become impatient to overtake even when the caravan is travelling at the same speed as all the other vehicles…

    Ever seen Ink Master? They do little challenges before going on to do a tattoo competition. They’ve painted guns, walls and prosthetic limbs, painting a custom design on a hearing aid would make a truly excellent detail challenge. I shall Tweet them forthwith! (If I can work out how).

      Hadn’t heard of them, thought it was a bubblejet printer! Looks interesting, am going to have a look at some episodes tonight. I must have these hearing aids. Now!

      I always said beige was going to become the new black…

    Just got hearing aids today and love the tattoo look and colourful plastic. How do you achieve this ordo you sell them.

    How do you paint them? If I wanted to do the same to my hearing aid how do I do that?

      Hi Levi, these ones are digital fakes using Photoshop to propose what they could look like. Painting hearing aids is impossible to do without running the risk of damaging them, don’t even try! Self-adhesive stickers are the best way to customise…
