The future of interaction design

Everyday we're used to interacting with different interfaces but what if the interface becomes part of you? While I was researching Marius Watz (a generative artist/graphic designer) for my essay I came across this tattoo interface. Her phone is ringing but there is no visual phone going so what does she do? She answers the phone with by pressing a button embedded in her skin's surface and while she's talking the tattoo comes to life as a digital video of her caller. When she finishes the tattoo disappears. 

Are we already at that stage where people are willing to let technology mark them, to mark their identities with technology in the name of communication?
