General Question

If you are tattoed with bar code, are you saying "I have no value as a human being", "Human beings should not value themselves",or something else? If something else, what are you saying?

Asked by flo (12981points) August 24th, 2010

I heard the person had bar code on his neck. So, he is telling the public something. What is it?
-I feel like a slave, I might as well be an item? or
-I am available to be bought?
or other

Personal preference. That’s what he/she likes?

Tattoos are art. Art’s subjective.

Not a clue. Hell maybe he did it because he thought it looked cool for all we know.

“I decided to take a tattoo, and in order to be unique i thought a bar code would be just the thing…, until i found out that there are herds of bar-code-tattoed people walking around.”

I wonder how much he costs?

flo's avatar

Yeah, I guess. I just find a barcode to be in a catagory all its own.

Randy's avatar

@chyna the tattoo probably cost him somewhere between $50 and $100 if he got it in a reputable tattoo shop so I’d assume that cost would carry over to him. Hahaha.

“Has nobody not told you, Brian, that you’ve got this kind of gleeful preoccupation with the future? I wouldn’t even mind, but you don’t even have a fuckin’ future, I don’t have a future. Nobody has a future. The party’s over. Take a look around you man, it’s all breaking up. Are you not familiar with the book of Revelations of St. John, the final book of the Bible prophesying the apocalypse?... He forced everyone to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one shall be able to buy or sell unless he has the mark, which is the name of the beast, or the number of his name, and the number of the beast is 6–6-6. ...What can such a specific prophecy mean? What is the mark? Well the mark, Brian, is the barcode, the ubiquitous barcode that you’ll find on every bog roll and packet of johnnies and every poxy pork pie, and every fuckin’ barcode is divided into two parts by three markers, and those three markers are always represented by the number 6. 6–6-6. Now what does it say? No one shall be able to buy or sell without that mark. And now what they’re planning to do in order to eradicate all credit card fraud and in order to precipitate a totally cashless society, what they’re planning to do, what they’ve already tested on the American troops, they’re going to subcutaneously laser tattoo that mark onto your right hand, or onto your forehead. They’re going to replace plastic with flesh. Fact. In the same book of Revelations when the seven seals are broken open on the day of judgment and the seven angels blow the trumpets, when the third angel blows her bugle, wormwood will fall from the sky, wormwood will poison a third part of all the waters and a third part of all the land and many many many people will die. Now do you know what the Russian translation for wormwood is? ....Chernobyl. Fact. On August the 18th, 1999, the planets of our solar system are gonna line up into the shape of a cross… They’re gonna line up in the signs of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, and Scorpio, which just happen to correspond to the four beasts of the apocalypse, as mentioned in the book of Daniel, another fuckin’ fact! Do you want me to go on? The end of the world is nigh, Brian, the game is up. ”

Maybe you’re saying you were a big fan of Dark Angel

flo's avatar

@frdelrosario that makes sense.

MrKoochy's avatar

ur flesh is not ur it is Gods and u should never tattoo your self because u are Gods child and you should give every 10% to him. he sent his son (Jesus) to die for ur sins on a cross and was beaten for you..

I saw a tattooed barstrip on a co-workers neck and asked what it meant. He promptly stated that its the bar code for saltine crackers; hence, he stated, he’s “a cracker”. Judging that his other tattoos were white supremist in nature (he had approximately twenty tats showing on arms, neck and face) I consider his bar code tat absolute proof that fools do get it right occasionally.

rebbel's avatar

@MrKoochy
Just the 10%?

MrKoochy's avatar

yes.. that is all God is asking us people to do . every thing is His because He created person and gave people the knowledge, and He knows that it will be hard for us people to give up more but some people do any ways. it really doesn’t matter how many % you give Him as long as it comes for the heart.

jfos's avatar

@MrKoochy Does that mean you’re only allowed to get 9 of your fingers tatooed?

MrKoochy's avatar

none. of your fingers and none on your body. Your flesh is not yours. do me a favor read the New Testament of the Holy Bible and you will understand and will be saved. and will go to heaven when you die and not hell and burn for life.

llewis's avatar

@lillycoyote probably has the reason. Dark Angel.

lillycoyote's avatar

@llewis I think barcode tattoos were used in Terminator 2 but barcodes on the back of the neck are very Dark Angel.

llewis's avatar

Hmm – it’s been a long time since I saw Terminator 2! Looks like I’m due for another movie marathon weekend! Bring popcorn? :)

flo's avatar

It looks like he is saying ‘I feel less than a human being, or don’t treat me like one.’
And people say that they are not influenced by what they see in the movies, TV shows?
