Will My Barcode Tattoo Remain Legible As It Ages
Age will definitely affect your barcode ink, just as it does any other tattoo design. The lines will eventually blur somewhat and this will affect scannability, especially if the design is not very big to begin with.

You can help ensure that your barcode tattoo will stay scannable by choosing a suitable spot on your body. Also, your design must be large enough for a scanner to be able to distinguish between the bars, so avoid making your tattoo too small. If you can successfully scan your printed design, you should also be able to scan it once it's inked.

The bottom line: Don't try to pack too much information into a single barcode tattoo -- keep it short and choose a good spot, and it will be more legible for a longer time.
