It's all a bit Grand Theft Auto, but Motorola and T-Mobile USA clearly want to get hip to the 'hood with these tattoo-styled RAZR V3 handsets, which go on sale in the US on Monday. No vibrating needles, indellible inks, seedy parlours and pain were used, apparently, but the laser etching technique Apple uses to give iPods a touch of the individual.

The decals were designed by one Ami James, a well-known tattooist of the brats-with-tats show Miami Ink. While the phones' looks are new, the internals are the standard RAZR spec: VGA camera with 4x digital zoom; 176 x 220, 2.2in display; Bluetooth; and backlit keyboard.

T-Mobile's got the exclusive on the Miami Ink line-up, and will offer them through its US retail stores and website on 30 October. Pricing was not disclosed. ®
