Deciding on a tattoo pretty much means you’re stuck with an image for life. To combat staleness, Fred Bosch chose a tattoo that will never look the same twice.
Bosch had a QR code inked onto the inside of his forearm. Scanning it is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.
The code may pop up with a GIF of a couple of headbangers swinging their hair around, or a recent tweet, a phrase, a video, or a weather report. Bosch calls it the first-ever random tattoo.
Surprise, surprise, this isn’t the first QR code tattoo we’ve heard about. A marketing stunt for Ballantine whiskey got there first.
Bosch may have some stiff competition for nerdy tattoos, but the ever-changing nature of his QR code links means he (and his tattoo viewers) will never get bored. Let’s just hope it never gets saggy.
