MEDFORD, Ore. -- Your next tattoo might be able to help track your health.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School and MIT designed new tattoo ink. It changes color according to your biochemistry.

If your glucose levels increase, the green in your tattoo will darken to brown.

The team used pig skin samples to test the ink. They are hoping the innovation will help people better monitor their health.
