Weekend before last I got my first tattoo…
A barcode on the back of the neck
So, in the spirit of sharing. Here’s a photo essay of sorts 🙂
But, before I start
- No it didn’t hurt – Felt like a cross between a sharp scratch with, say, a pine needle, and when you get too close to a sparkler.
- I got a barcode because I wanted to
- Yes the numbers do mean something, bonus points if you can guess the significance.
- I dont know whether it will scan yet, I havent tried. Although its not UPC so it wouldnt scan on normal scanners anyway.
So now that 4 of the 5 standard questions have been answered (the first seems to be is it real?)

Can you tell I’ve had too much caffeine today??
First the design was transferred onto my neck.
The process finally begins
Halfway done… I’ll admit it hurt a little bit more on the nobbly bits… And when he went over the thicker lines to fill them out.
Immediately after it was finished… Kinda blurry because Colin took it with a camera phone and they dont really do close up.
It felt like a bad sunburn by now… And its all 3d like when you scratch yourself on something and get that raised red bit. Also excess ink is coming out.
And the Final Product…
holy shit that’s cool! Why didn’t you show us the other night??? I’ve always said I’d love a barcode tatt! Perfect! ALthough recently I’ve decided to get the TPN logo instead. 🙂
I get the bonus points!
