2. Recreating a Bar Code

For this tutorial, the instructor applied a bar code to a lemon.  Since I'm trying to use only my images, I went with an old SG 365 self portrait and used my forehead.  The most challenging part of this exercise for me was warping the bar code so it didn't lay flat across my head. 

It's not perfect, the ends are a bit pixelated, but I learned about transforming and warping.  Try it out! What would you like to see a bar code on? Feel free to post comments on how this could be improved and/or your personal bar code experiments.


  1. I am so excited about your project! Kind of makes me want to jump ship on my project and start following along on yours.

  2. You are sweet but don't you DARE! I will be learning this for years!

  3. I haven't seen a tattooed bar code on a forehead. What I've seen is one placed on the back of the neck. Well, good thing you learned how to transform and warp. To answer your question, I'd like to see a bar code on the left ankle of a cute girl. Why? Just because. LOL.
