The barcode tattoo as a statement against society rivaled the popularity of misinterpreted Kanji in the nineties, but one artist is bringing it back as a way to connect people's online lives with their fleshy ones. Or at least offer another way to market your blog. And ya know, I don't think it's such a bad idea.

Tattoo artist Levi Smith of The Jade Monkey Tattoo in Phoenix, Arizona has been tattooing quick response code [QR code] -- which is similar to a barcode -- on eager clients. The codes can then be scanned by smartphones (there's an app for that) and lead to your website, Facebook page or eHarmony dating profile. The possibilities are vast.

For more details on these scannable tattoos, check the CBS 5 News video interview with Levi or the videos posted on his blog.
