Motorola (owned by Google) has filed a patent application which reveals a technology that enables people to tattoo a microphone to their throat. This embedded mic would pick up the vibrations of speech from the users voicebox and allow people to talk on their phone via a Bluetooth connection.

This new techs aims is reportedly to reduce the nuisance of background noise and prevent people from speaking loudly into cellphones in public.

In these days of easily hackable technology how could one ever know if the tattoo was really turned off? Or that it wasnt being used to track or monitor? That kind of surveillance can no longer be denied as only existing within the realm of conspiracy theory after a decade or more of revelations about the National Security Agency and their vast spying programs.

What are the health consequences of having a power supply, an embedded transceiver, and wireless circuitry stuck to your neck?

Even more concerning is the idea that this tech, as described in the patent, will be used as lie detection equipment as it can be made to monitor biometric data:

The electronic skin tattoo 200 can further include a galvanic skin response detector to detect skin resistance of a user. It is contemplated that a user that may be nervous or engaged in speaking falsehoods may exhibit different galvanic skin response than a more confident, truth telling individual. Source

This is one more step for the technology push that claims to make life simpler while simultaneously complicating and compromising the ideas of personal privacy.
