Just found this while pulling together the news review for ya and wanted to highlight because it looks like a cool way to brighten up ugly casts if you're like me and can only master stick figure drawing yourself: Casttoo.

The cast tattoos are waterproof, orthopedic decals that add some badass to bone breaks. The idea of easy-to-apply cast decoration comes from Jessica Smith, a University of Colorado art grad, who developed her Boulder-based company (with partner David Cowell) after a bike accident that left her with a broken wrist and an unfashionable brace, which she quickly handpainted for "happy healing."

Designs span the range of tattoo styles including Americana, Japanese, Tribal, and Graffiti. Check 'em here. And sizes run from children to extra large adult with prices from $20 up to $40, plus shipping.

It's a creative use of tattoo art beyond skin.

The news is up next.
