So, one Italian guy came up with a totally original and useful idea for a tattoo. He decided to tattoo the QR code of his EU COVID 19 vaccination certificate on his upper arm.
A QR code or barcode may be a visual, machine-readable representation of data that’s created using different widths & spacings of parallel, vertical lines. Today, this sort of barcode is mentioned as one-dimensional (1D).
The tattoo artist that did this impressive one-dimensional tattoo is Gabriele Pellerone, Il Reggino reported, but didn’t reveal the identity of guy getting the tattoo.
Pellerone even released a video of the tattoo & that we tried the QR code and it indeed works! Now, the sole problem lies within the incontrovertible fact that the vaccination authority may plan to change the QR codes.
However, within the meantime, this Italian guy will never need to worry about finding his QR code on his phone or on piece of paper. Now that electronic tattoos embedded with biosensors also are soon becoming a reality we will not help but wonder what other tattoos this brave Italian guy might get. MIT & Microsoft have even created tattoos which will control smartphones.
In another interesting QR code story, in 2017 alittle Chinese village called Xilinshui came up with uniquue-plan of creating a huge QR code of carefully arranged trees, beat the hopes of drawing in-more tourists. The code consisted of over 130,000 meticulously trimmed & arranged trees and might only be scanned from the sky.
