In the FAQ, Vivalnk mentioned that the Digital Tattoo can work by proximity, but tapping it works better. Since the PIN is stored to the phone itself, there’s no threat of the phone being compromised from the tattoo.

The Digital Tattoo is offered in a $10 ten pack, each one lasts for around five days and are durable enough to handle daily activity. As mentioned earlier, it’s only available for use with the Motorola X.
