They say no one uses QR codes because it is too hard to push a button twice.
I wonder how many non-artists (without photoshop) took the time to see where this leads.
Istanbul’s Berrge Studio tested the dexterity of potential hires by requiring that tattoo artists fill in a QR code to access a job application.
