However, it is not clear if the tattoo ever worked or it stopped working recently, which could have happened due to some change in skin or fading of the pigment.

A social media influencer from Columbia who has been famous for having a QR code tattooed on his neck has revealed that it really does’t work. Earlier it was claimed that that tattoo opens his social media page. In February, the influencer, Mauricio Gomez aka La Liendra shared a video with his 5.4 million Instagram followers where he showed how the tattoo worked. He stunned his followers after the video showed the QR codes actually working.

In the video, Liendra flaunted some of his existing tattoos before he proceeded to show the QR code tattoo on the back of his neck. Then, the person recording the video uses the phone camera to ‘scan’ the code and a message pops up to open La Liendra’s Instagram page. It was his girlfriend who reportedly recorded the video.

But it has now surfaced that the code doesn’t actually work, or may be it stopped working recently. The revelation happened when Liendra reportedly told friend Carlos Ramos that it wasn’t working. He had gone to borrow Ramos’ Porsche sports car for social media content where he spoke about his fabled tattoo.

However, it is not clear if the tattoo ever worked or it stopped working recently, which could have happened due to some change in skin or fading of the pigment.
