I’ve been wanting a tattoo for a long time. More specifically, a barcode tattoo. The meaning behind it for me is the fact I shouldn’t take myself too seriously. I’m actually just a product of society, even a number you might say. It reminds me of a quote from a movie: “Don’t take life too seriously; you’ll never get out alive” [Van Wilder] (Not exactly a philosophical source, but I think it’s nicely said and true 🙂 ).
Then a funny thing happened last Summer. While browsing sites, I came across the website of Scott Blake. This guy is obsessed with barcodes and has a whole website of barcode art. You can check his website here, it’s really worth it! You can even order barcode sticker tattoos and that’s exactly what I did.
Although the fake tattoo is quite large, I like the result. But for a real tattoo I would probably want it to be half the size. This way I can hide it easily from my family, they do not approve this at all. 😉
I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever get it, I’m maybe not a daredevil after all 🙂
