    The three local places i have been to have all said that there is a pretty good chance that they will either:
    A) create wavy lines because the skin moves while tattoing
    B) wavy lines will just form due to my growing and physical activity
    C) will just end up looking like a 2" x 1" black rectangle on my back

    i have been planning for some time to get this tattoo and I was really psyched about the possibilities but now it seems like it's a no go. I can understand that if i grow and get fat that the lines might become wavy, but do you think that a tattoo artist of moderate skill being compensated fairly should be able to create a simple barcode tattoo from a template of mine without the risk of imperfection?

    And should i be concerned that it will end up looking like the aforementioned 2"x1" black rectangel??

    thanks guys, this will be my first tattoo and i am/was really excited about getting it.

    a) a tattoo artist should be able to do it straight and not be wavy
    b) you'd have to grow quite a bit
    c) this could happen if the lines are too close together

    I wonder if you'd be scannable once the ink kinda bleeds

    go to the best place possible...some shitty places will fuck up for sure, the lines will NOT be completely straight and there will be bleeding. Where on your back will it be? I can't see you getting too big for it to turn to a rectangle..also unless you go in the sun every day and tan it a lot you won't have to worry about it until you're 70 or something
