Is there a way to tickle somebody with Electric current

Hi all. So I'm working on an Art project, and I am using human capacitance to determine if two people are touching. I have that part working, but was also wondering if there was a way to cause a tickling sensation when the two people touch. Is there any feasible way to do this? Or am I just imagining the impossible (yet again). Thanks in advance!

Possible, but not particularly practical or safe if done improperly, I wouldn't recommend it. You'd need a high voltage very low current constant current source.

Sorry... are we talking about electronics or women? :D

The one thing that I don't like about this is the more than likley it's going to be a hand on a shoulder or two hand touching, that's just how humans tend to make contact, which means the current is going to be going right across the chest, not such a good idea.

It should be possible, I remember lining up with a bunch of other fools and touching an electric fence; noone died.

But I wouldn't trust an artist to wire me up :p

What does lining up do? You're all touching the ground...especially the person nearest to the fence!

Next to no amps? Those things make me climb a chair like your stereotypical woman seeing a mouse (no offense to any women present) I REALLY hate the shock from them, especially to the hand, I'd hardly call it a tickle!
