4Horse in motion
More than 100 years later, North Carolina-based designer Evan Hawkins used “Horse In Motion” as the inspiration for a stop motion tattoo animation that involved having eleven different people tattooed with eleven different frames of a horse in mid-gallop. As the idea's creator, Hawkins got the first tattoo but still needed ten other willing participants. Thanks to social media, the remaining spots were quickly filled. On November 20, 2011, ten people were tattooed by Matt Hoyme at Liberty Tattoo in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. (The eleventh had his tattoo done in Austin, Texas.)
When all of the tattoos were complete, Hawkins photographed each one and brought “The Horse In Motion” to life. (Source)
Needles and Sins reports that the customer, Marco, can change the QR code points to swap new animations in whenever he pleases, and he already has a second animation ready to go.
The session was streamed live on Facebook as part of a promotion with Ballantine's, allowing viewers to comment and talk with Karl as he worked.

The pair brought the inked patterns of tattoo artists Eduardo Cavellucci and Igor Gama to life, using projectors and animation software. They projected moving images onto the ink so it appeared like patterns and artworks came spilling across people's bodies. The project took place in Lisbon and was billed as “the world's first live tattoo video mapping event.”
