Tattoo enthusiast gets a QR code inked on his chest
QR codes are becoming an ever more prevalent way for advertisers to offer interactive content to smartphone and tablet users. Featured alongside an advert, smartphone users with a QR reading app can be offered app downloads, video content and further info, just by simply scanning the black-and-white barcode-like squares.
So of course it was only a matter of time until a brand slapped a QR code onto a human being. But it takes some dedication to have a QR code tattooed permanently onto your skin.
But that’s just what French tattoo enthusiast Marco has had done. Teaming up with whiskey brand Ballantine, he’s had a QR code inked onto his chest, which when read by a QR reader on an iPhone, opens up a YouTube video animation that makes his tat come to life and sing.
So, if the price was right, would you get a techy advert tattooed onto your body? And if you had the chance to choose, what would your QR code activate?
