She discovered the technology from Skin Motion that enabled her to hear her grandmother's voice.

When her grandmother passed away, Sakyrah "decided to save the voicemail in as many places as I could" and later chose to invest in a soundwave tattoo.

Angelique said she was holding onto her grandmother's voicemail for nearly three years, not knowing what to do with it.

Sakyrah Morris, from Chicago, had the sound wave from the voicemail inked onto her chest - which plays through a smart phone when it's placed over it.

"I chose to get my family saying "I love you" for my Soundwave Tattoo", one customer testimonial on the company's website reads.

However, Madley was between the two players and took no action against either. Milner stepped up to the spot and put the hosts in front.

The tattoo is of the waveform of the voice recording, with a special app able to play back the audio file using image recognition.

"I had dreamed about it for a while so when I actually did it, it was unreal to hear her voice", she told Newsbeat.

"I waited until now because I was still at a young age once she passed away, which was in 2015", Angelique said in a story on BET News. "A month before she passed, she left me a voicemail wishing me happy birthday".

"I figured it'd be something permanent that would be across my heart to be more meaningful".

According to a well-informed Twitter user, the application isn't exactly reading the message from her skin, but rather "stores an image of the waveform" and plays it from an audio file.
