‘Blindspot’ Tattoos Times Square

NBC is taking over Times Square this weekend and offering visitors to the iconic landmark the chance to see themselves up in lights on a giant billboard.

Locals and visitors to Manhattan's Pedestrian Plaza, between 46th and 47th streets, on Saturday Sept. 19 and Sunday Sept. 20 will have the chance to partake in a photo opportunity where their head will be placed on a fully tattooed body, similar to "Blindspot" character Jane Doe.

These photos will be featured on the massive Times Square digital billboard, as well as be printed for each individual and shared socially. An on-site tattoo bar will give out temporary half-sleeve "Blindspot" tattoos as well. Finally, 10 fully tattooed Jane Doe look-alikes will be walking around Times Square handing out temporary tattoos to promote awareness for the series.

"Blindspot" centers on a beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, who is found naked in Times Square with her body fully covered in intricate tattoos. Her discovery sets off a vast and complex mystery that immediately ignites the attention of the FBI, who begin to follow the road map on her body to reveal a larger conspiracy of crime while bringing her closer to discovering the truth about her identity.

The cast includes Sullivan Stapleton ("300: Rise of an Empire," "Strike Back"), Jaimie Alexander ("Thor: The Dark World," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Marianne Jean-Baptiste ("Broadchurch," "Without a Trace"), Rob Brown ("Treme"), Audrey Esparza ("Black Box"), Ukweli Roach ("The Royals") and Ashley Johnson ("Much Ado About Nothing").
