Greatest animated tattoo ever â€“ unless you go to prison
This is part ofÂ Ballantines’ Human API projectÂ and their “Leave an Impression” promotion.
WatchÂ Karl Marc,Â as he tattoo’s a skinny dude with a waxed chest. This guy is obviously willing to do anything to get his hands on some of Ballantines marketingÂ dollars. I guess waxing isn’t that cheep these day.
By placing an iphone over the tattoo you can watch the QR code trigger an animation. We don’t think this animated tattoos will help you win any friends inÂ prison, but they might help you kill some time. Just saying.
What’s with all the QR code campaigns of late? We’ve only recently seen the rather excellentÂ TescoÂ Homeplus created virtual stores QR campaign. QR codes are cute and novel, and big in Japan, but we thinkÂ QR codes will fade awayÂ in the coming years.Â Google have already decided to kill of these little square codes. But what will replace them I hear you shout, maybeÂ NFC, Google Goggles or Something Else?
Besides, what would your mother say if you came home with a QR CodeÂ tattoo?
