It features Lumina, played by the beautiful JuJu Chan, who's life is suddenly changed when she meets a stranger in her mirror. This makes for some great imagery, using many of the numerous reflective surfaces in Hong Kong. The series was filmed with the Red One, a digital video camera, launched in 2007. The Red One is capable of recording at resolutions up to 4096x2304 pixels, directly to flash or hard disk storage and features an Arri PL lens mount, making it a viable option for smaller independent productions. Interviews with creator Jennifer Thym are available at uberscifigeek.com and various other places. English and Chinese subtitles are up, but Jennifer still needs help with other languages (English is spoken in the series)."

A quick google came up with this site suggesting a ruler on your arm, identification or medical information. I am however not completely satisfied with these options, so I'm wondering if the slashdot crowd can come up with some suggestions for functional tattoos. It doesn't really need to be useful, as long as it has some use (like a connect-the-dots tattoo), although something that has some value other than entertainment would be interesting aswell. A quick brainstorm came up with things like a star map, a solar dial or some other useful information or figure — or maybe even a (very) useful and hard to remember mathematical formula. I'm sure there are plenty of ideas for information that you just won't to leave home without. Link to Original Source
