BIG BANG FAIR 2010 BEST BRONZE CREST AWARD WINNER : Which tattoos last longest?
In our science master class, our group tested how durable and how waterproof different types of tattoos were. The different types of tattoos that we tested were; Low quality semi-permanent; Biro and Henna. We tested the durability by wearing one of each tattoo for a week and recording which one wore away first, this test was quite successful. To test how waterproof the tattoos were we rubbed them with soapy water for 1 minute and recorded how much they had faded. In these experiments we found that the most durable and waterproof tattoo was the Henna tattoo, this is also what we had predicted from the start so we are quite confident that the tests we carried out were fair.
Jenny: “It was good fun making our own tattoo designs. We could be creative.”
