If Magneto, the arch-nemesis of the X-Men, was a tattooed hipster, he might look a lot like this guy.

Dave Hurban, a Dynasty Tattoo artist from Newfield, N.J., surgically implanted four magnets into his wrist. Why? Basically, it's a cool (or at least unique) way to hold his iPod Nano in place without a pesky wristband.

You can check out a video of the process below, produced by Kaledioscope Kreative. But be warned—there will be blood. For more on Youth, the band featured in the video, check out their official site.

Back in March, it was revealed that Nokia has issued patents for "vibrating tattoos," which could be permanently attached to a person's body and used to alert them when they were receiving a phone call or text message.
