No Point Hiding Your Tattoos Now Crims, as Scientists Can See Right Through ThemS

And you thought turning your "terrorism 4 eva" tattoo into "terrariums 4 eva" would stop you getting caught. Scientists are working on a new infrared camera that can detect adapted tattoos, which will help recognize crafty criminals.

Supposedly if the tattoo has changed, either by laser removal, adding more ink or even surgery, the infrared cameras can pick up on the change, and actually illustrate what the original design once looked like. It'd prove invaluable for detectives seeking criminals who may've tried disguising themselves, though reports of cameras detecting wigs and fake mustaches are still sadly unfounded. [TechRadar]
