Genetic Tattoos In The Future

In the future there will be genetic tattoos which will prevent infection and stay crisp longer, use natural colors of nature and even be 3D in depiction. This is pretty high tech stuff, but you can expect it to come into existence within a couple of decades as genetic manipulation or cell expression BioTech breakthroughs become more prevelant. Recently this topic came up at an online think tank and a fellow thinker asked the question; “GENETIC TATTOOS sounds fascinating and smart job...genetic tattoos will that be transferred to the next generation?”

The short answer is No Way, but here are some additional thoughts below. Genetic Tattoos in this scenario could not transferred to the next generation. But with some additional work we maybe able to get them to thru a skip generation scenario, if we did it before procreation and thru modification of the sex cells and that would be a lot of work in that, theoretically you could screw around with it, but most likely not still?

We would really get into some major discussions, but such a process done over and over with the same family line and the expression of hormones could alter such, this is way out stuff, but still the answer is No, probably not. But if it was a sex organ or in one of those areas of the body there are some possibilities, but still probably not, although theoretically a possibility and if we could somehow affect the production in the mother of the hormonal bath of the baby in the womb you could modify the development some, but trying to do a 3D scene in skin, I would say still no way

It would be easier in a test tube baby under specific conditions during formation, but would it indeed change so it would be passed on once more, next time; again most likely not again. But if you could splice in some “Jelly Fish DNA” to a test tube baby in a specific region only after stem cells have chosen you could have a start of something and I must say this thought came from the discovery of making translucent pigs using Jelly Fish DNA.
