QR Code-Enabled Animated Tattoo

In June, 2011, Paris-based tattoo artist Karl Marc incorporated a QR code into a client’s tattoo, which when scanned revealed an animated version of the rose within the tattoo. Needles and Sins reports that the client, Marco, can change where the QR code points so he can swap new animations in whenever he pleases, and he already has a second animation ready to go.

The session was streamed live on Facebook as part of a promotion with Ballantine’s, allowing viewers to comment live and talk with Karl as he worked.
