It’s simple! (sort of…) You design your tattoo around a QR code and use a smart phone to generate the animation. Genius!
Is this the next big trend in personal branding and creating a self-identity? I think so.
Social acceptance for tattoos has changed drastically in the past 10 years. In Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland you’ll find that most Millennials have branded themselves with one or more tattoos and they’re no longer shy about it. It’s self-expression, whether you do it because you love art, believe your skin is only a shell, or you simply want ink!
The difference between a traditional tattoo and a QR code tattoo is that the associated image can be changed. For instance, if your code initially reflects a flower, but you decide you want to see a unicorn during the animation, it’s completely feasible.
