    Thats good ! I think setting off a few alarms will be funny :P

    Sugar sounds sweet hehe
    Or your favourite treat but then that could change hmmm mine would probs me malteasers


    It would be funny especially watching people jump when the alarm goes off !

    Lol, yeah sugar , bread , eggs, milk, are all things stock so I would be able to scan myself at any shop almost.

    Thanks for your advice I never thought of chocolate, crisps, biscuits, I'll consider those but I really like the maltesers idea, thanks !

    Cheers

    yes security tags set off alarms but in some stores were the owners has set up the alarm gates the barcodes also set the alarms off , not in all stores but some where they have been set to do that
    Sorry, but you're wrong. The scanners aren't set up to check bardcodes, they work on radio tags.

    I am 25 and I've wanted a barcode tattoo for ages, I would put it on my wrist.

    I would like it to scan and I know they can because I've seen and read about barcode tattoos that work under barcode scanners.
    However I don't want to be walking out of a shop and setting the store alarms off with my barcode tattoo, that is the only thing that slightly worries me lol.

    Anyway I have decided I really want this tattoo and think I will get it, jut wodering your opinions on them, thanks
    personally I always think tattoos are a bad idea, but if you want one, go ahead.

    Keep in mind that tattoos bleed slightly and thin lines can almost double in size over the years so make sure there's a good amount of space between the lines.
    Your tattoo may not scan correctly after some years for those reasons.

    It looks good! But the middle lines may bleed into one another so it won't read properly in a few years so enioy it while you can. What does the barcode show when you scan it?

    Thank you very much
    I hope it will not fade, if in a few years it does I will have it redone or get a barcode on my other wrist.

    I guess you don't have a barcode scanner available, but if you have the app you can scan it with your phone and see what item I am !


    Still a little wary leaving stores in case the alarms go off so I am covering it with my other hand atm when exiting through store alarm gates lol
