Making Money On QR Codes

This is one of the more creative applications of QR codes - tattoos. $240 to date at $80/tattoo. Given how permanent the code is, I'm wondering if they shouldn't have considered MS Tags - more branding and flexibility. It's the 2011 version of a dog tag. Would be more interesting if these were links to pages with medical records, etc. - something useful in the case of an emergency. Kidding aside, 2D bar codes have a lifetime - whether they live in a print ad, on a book cover, or on one's skin. Those employing 2D bar codes - especially on product packaging - must take into consideration the lifetime of the code and be ready to support it whether it's a marketing campaign or a link to a video with a safety demonstration.

Tattoos do sound a bit too

Tattoos do sound a bit too permanent to us.. Given the speed of technological advances, these amazing codes only have a limited life span.. What's on the horizon? Google Goggles Tattoos?

Meantime, if you're looking for something a little less permanent, but equally as cool, why not rock up in a QRazystuff.com personalized Tee or Hoodie..? You can update the destination of your tag whenever you want, so always staying ahead of the curve!

QR Codes

Yes, tattoos may well exceed the lifetime of a basic QR Code but you can get a Dynamic QR Code which stays the same always but where it sends you can be changed. SO if you have a tattoo that says "I love Mary" and then you break up with Mary, you can change the message to "I love Kate."

You can also have designer QR Codes these days so they are getting better in terms of aligning them to your branding.
