SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) — Imagine a tattoo that receives phone calls.

Although it’s currently science fiction, Nokia is betting it could make it happen. In fact, the company is so confident, they’ve patented the idea.

Nokia’s patent application describes a “ferromagnetic” tattoo that will transfer “a perceivable stimulus to the skin, wherein the perceivable stimulus relates to the magnetic field.”

In simpler terms, the tattoo would actually vibrate when its owner’s phone rings.

Nokia has considered that some may squirm over the thought of getting a tattoo, so the patent also includes a removable material that attaches to the skin and performs the same function.
