Nearly all of the real barcode tattoos I have seen in person and online photos appear not to scan.
It is worth mentioning that tattoos do change with age, they all slowly blend out over time, and that will effect the accuracy.
To get started making your own personalized barcode tattoo, there are several places on the web that have free barcode generators. I started making temporary barcode tattoos as an art project a few years ago, and have sold over 2,500 units. One last suggestion for the tattoo artist would be to under ink the tattoo instead of over filling the black areas. Yes, all scanners throughout the world should be able to read your temporary barcode tattoos. I usually make the custom temporary barcode tattoos within 48 hours after receiving an order, and ship them off shortly after. There are some fine examples of tattooed lines and numbers that look like the ubiquitous symbol, but the true test for any barcode is does it make the scanner beep. Barcodes are a combination of black and white bars, if the black ink expands too much, it can ruin the white areas.
The images will need some adjusting, but this is the perfect place to start creating your unique code. The fun with temporary body art is that you can put them in places you would never be able to get a permanent one. Liam O'Toole got an excellent one done in June 2008, but Chris Arkwright recently posted his that does not scan.


However most businesses are set up only to recognize barcodes in their inventory, and chances are your custom phrase is not registered. For orders placed inside United States you should receive the tattoos in 5 - 10 days, and the rest of the world delivery time is between 10 - 20 days.
These temporary tattoos use a skin adhesive similar to medical bandages, completely safe to wear, and approved by the FDA. You can use baby oil or rubbing alcohol to get rid of any residue left by the temporary tattoo. Most barcode tattoos try to cram too much information under skin, and eventually the ink blends into a black blob.
I suggest decreasing the resolution to 10 dpi to allow for some distortion and blending over time.
You can always add a dot later if you need a touch up, but you can't subtract from a tattoo. Go for a traditional look on the forehead or palm, or exercise your freedom to wear the mark anywhere you choose. There are several factors to consider when tattooing the computer generated symbol, like the DPI of skin and how many lines are in a barcode, but I believe with precision it can be done.
Selecting a flat surface on the back will also make it easier to scan the barcode.Moving on to the most common type of barcode symbology, the one found in most supermarkets, which is also being used extensively for tattoo art is the UPC.
Barcodes are the ultimate in un-originality, and that is why they are so fun to personalize. It is good fun to get scanned at the store, make the machine beep, and see how much it thinks you are worth.


Therefore the original barcode artwork must be made at 42 lines per inch or lower to translate properly into a tattoo. To figure out what the minimum size UPC tattoo should be, divide 95 units, by 42 dpi, and you get 2.26 inches.
So a skilled tattoo artist, using one needle in their gun, should make all UPC style barcodes at least 2.26 inches wide. They must be made larger to have any chance of scanning, but do not make the image too big. Most barcode scanners maximum input area is 2.5 inches, so any line pattern bigger than that will not fit into the red laser eye. Looking closely at the UPC barcode there are 35 black bars, 33 white bars, and all the lines come in three different widths.There is another barcode language used throughout the world that can encode letters called the Code 128 style.
Barcodes are scalable so you can enlarge the image up to 2.5 inches wide and it will still scan. Making the barcode bigger will help in reduce errors in scanning.The absolute largest possible phrase is 6 characters. You may actually use any font for the type and it will have no effect on scanning the barcode.
