Application Of The SOMARK tattoo is simple - it takes less than 2 seconds

This whole idea is pretty ridiculous, not to mention it would be very cost effective for tptb, so it looks like we may have something new to worry about...

The Patented SOMARK ID System

The SOMARK technology is based on an ink tattoo unique to the industry. We have a competitive advantage with a lower price point, 100% retention, easy application and reliable identification.

What’s more, injection of our product is short and simple. No shaving is required and the process takes a few seconds.

Currently, we have three U.S. issued patents.



The SOMARK identification system is a chipless radio frequency identification (RFID) platform. Typical RFID systems use a microchip and an antenna embedded in a tag affixed to an object. The SOMARK chipless system eliminates the high-cost microchip and antenna, instead using simply an electronic ink to create the identification ‘tag’. This ink is deposited directly onto or within the object which creates seamless integration of the object and the identification of that object.

Yeah, so now instead of the RFID chips, we can get a tattoo that takes 2 seconds to apply to the skin and then we'll be officially branded for the rest of our lifes to be read by computers easily. Sound good?

Here is the .pdf file the site offers which provides information about their services.

Now for those of you who actually check out the website, if you read about it they talk about using it for livestock and such, but when you take a closer look you begin to look at things a bit differently. Let's take a look at some info that makes me ponder *just a bit* about what this tattoo ID system may be used for...

Since the SOMARK ID tattoo is simply an ink and not a complicated assembly consisting of a microchip and an antenna, the SOMARK ID tattoo can be placed on or within virtually any material. Anywhere standard ink could be placed is a possible ID location such as:

Living tissue

On the surface or below the surface

Flexible or rigid

Bumpy or smooth

Possible substrates include:

Living tissue







Liquid containers (full or empty)

All bolded words done by myself. Now, take a look - living tissue is said twice when referring to where this ID system can be applied. Hmm... human's have living tissue, right?

And when reading a bit about this technology I see this...

There are two ways SOMARK ink can be read. The first involves a handheld reader that only works when the surface of the reader is in direct contact with the tattoo. This method of reading is quick, easy and inexpensive. The second method of reading is more involved and expensive, but allows for remote reading of the tattoo similar to the way RFID tattoos are read through the use of a panel reader. This remote detection method is ideal for fixed-position automated reading of SOMARK tattoos and is more compatible with metal-laden environments than traditional RFID readers because of the fundamental differences in the way the readers work. Distances of up to 5’ have been demonstrated in the lab for this type of reading using frequencies of 10GHz and above using a prototype panel reader.

So think about it... Picture something like a metal detector (maybe even a bit more modern) except instead of scanning for metal it scans the tattoo. This system could be implemented to metal detectors that are already installed in places such as the airport or shopping centers. Your every move could be up-linked to the NSA and you'd have no privacy really. To go even farther with this, imagine the NSA is looking for someone, said person happens to go through one of these "detectors" it gives the government an idea of where you're at, and quickly they bring up security cameras or satellite imagery to locate your whereabouts. I'm just bringing up possible scenarios here, but I'm sure you all catch my drift...


Humans next?

Somark Innovations co-founder Mark Pydynowski noted that the RFID ink is fully biocompatible and was safe for use in humans. He noted that RFID ink tattoos could be used to track and rescue soldiers. “It could help identify friends or foes, prevent friendly fire, and help save soldiers’ lives,” Pydynowski said.

Readers should note that VeriChip tags for patients are FDA approved and VeriChip tags have been proposed for immigrants.


I was just looking up more information and there you have it - Somark system for humans! It also says that it's FDA approved for patients, so the government is obviously already fascinated with this idea.

Next comes the laws that says you can't wear gloves or hats that block the transmission of the frequency. I'm guessing that will have two "classes" of these tattoos for the lower "class" it will be a tattoo on the forehead, easier for scanning when you are walking down the street, and if you are wearing a hat that blocks the frequency the jack-boots will automatically come for you. For the "elite" class it will be in the hand that way they are allowed to block their transmission so people can't "hack" their identification and pose as them.

This is seriously bad stuff. I also find it interesting that the name of the company is SOMARK.

good post. I'm sure the company though is trying to sell its product for a wide range of services and the live stock is really jsut cattle not human. but still if used badly could be used on humans...

Well once I saw this I knew that it had potential to be used on humans, and after reading the site it is obvious that they are hinting towards its use for basically anything...


The reusable mechanical date stamp-like applicator is used with the ID ink cartridge to inject the tattoo in animal applications. The user takes a tattoo cartridge and places it into the applicator. By simply pulling a trigger, the pneumatically operated applicator then injects the tattoo while destroying the tattoo cartridge at the same time to prevent reuse. The spent cartridge is ejected from the applicator and discarded. In non-animal applications the applicator could be any number of devices normally used to deposit ink onto or within a surface such as an inkjet printer, sprayer, or offset printing device.

Why would you want to stop reuse, wouldn't it be more cost effective to use the same cartridge over and over again? Maybe so you don't spread disease?

And they use the phrase "In non-animal applications" which is kind of saying "Yeah you can use this on human tissue as well"

I mean honestly, you don't think this new technology is going to be used by the government? It's way cheaper then inserting a chip into everyone, and the chips alone are expensive. With this system you just sort of 'stamp' a sort of bar code that can be used to ID someone or something. Then using an nation (or international) database everyone could be tracked down, your lives would be an open book. If you go into an Adult Store well guess what, now they know! Can't even buy porn without tptb knowing about it

This is a definite red flag for those watching out for the 'mark of the beast'. I always thought a bar-code tattoo was a real possibility for the mark.

Found this article from a few years back

The Somark's system use an array of needles to injects a passive RFID ink which can be read through animal hair. One day, this could also be used on people.

"The RFID ink is fully biocompatible and was safe for use in humans," said Somark Innovations co-founder Mark Pydynowski.

The new technology could be employed for tracking and rescuing soldiers. "Military personnel" is Somark's "secondary target market."

Invisible Tattoos

Scary stuff.

Damn I hadn't seen that article. I'm going to see if I can find anymore information on this because it's pretty disturbing to think we may all be identified by a bar-code one day, being forced to stay within tptb's grasp.

On a side note I thought of this...

Let me take this one step further. The powers that be are actually creating clones which will be on the shelves for Christmas. You pick a baby out from behind a glass wall and they are identified by the bar-code on their neck, just slide them across the lazer reader and wallah! You got yourself a new baby (and it still has new baby smell).

gotta ask... is this tattoo going to be in the shape of 3 sixs by any chance?

Actually I got some info saying it may be the mark of the beast...

Check out the update in the OP though as well. Not good news... not good news at all.

nice find... i myself are one of a few of my generation that is still unbranded as in my own opinion i do not mind anyone having tatoo`s or piercing`s but it just doesn`t do it for me,call me a contientious objector and that is my will to remain so.i will contest this to the grave

You know I wonder if they could get away with making regular tattoos a cover up for these kind. That would be pretty bad. That would mean all of us with tattoo's already have this then, including myself.

Not if you believe in what the Bible says. It clearly implies that this 'mark of the beast' will symbolize your stand with God and his plan by refusing it, or with the one world government (Satan's plan) if you accept it. Taking this mark is not going to be anything that can be 'secretly' slipped on to you, if you have an understanding of what was prophesied in the Bible and what is going on.

I do believe there will be many who don't really understand the full implications and that they're taking a stand against God by taking the mark. However, these will only be those who have not taken the time to understand his word in the Bible.

Any mark, tattoo, or chip that is required to buy or sell in our current society is clearly described as being the mark of the beast in Revelation.

What? I can't make out what you're trying to say?

Nobody knows exactly what it's going to be yet, other than the 'markers', if they've already decided and created the system for it.

I found this information very useful so I gave you a star for your post. I have to say that marking a human in the future for any reason be it buying or selling or for a religious matter etc scares the crap outta me. No doubt it will happen for some reason.

mmmm worrying subject, great post S&F.

Imagine it only takes a few seconds. A few seconds when you might be distracted. A few seconds when you are in the dentists chair, on the operating table or even drunk .

Am I also right in thinking once applied the tattoo is invisisible to the recipient? Geez !! you wont even know you have it.

Thanks, and yeah I think anyone in the right mind would find the idea of be 'branded' in any way scary.

As for what the bible has to say about the mark of the beast etc. no offense to anyone who believes in the bible, but I believe it's filled with fairy tails. The only thing that is remotely correct that is contained within the bible is the way to treat others and how to live a good life. The teachings of those named in the bible including Jesus are good and I don't deny that, but their 'powers' have been embellished quite a bit, as have the stories. I'm sorry but I just cannot believe there is a hell where your soul goes for eternity for sins you created as a human being - we are human we make mistakes, who is to say we can't have another chance to prove our humanity?

Which brings me to the point that no one should be branded because nothing is permanent. No one persons actions are permanent since energy is neither created or destroyed, it's forever evolving alongside our physical bodies and our spiritual selves. So to be branded is to be enslaved as what you were at the time of the enslaving.

Just my opinion and beliefs, I could be wrong - but if so please tell your God to let me into heaven

Here's your answer...

Invisible RFID Ink Tattoos For Cattle, People
Somark Innovations announced bio-compatible RFID ink, which can be used to tattoo cattle and laboratory rats and can be read through animal hair. This is a passive RFID technology that contains no metals; the tattoos themselves can be colored or invisible.

I like this. Much easier to find and remove then an RFID chip. No one is going to arrest you if you're covered up because of the cold or rain either. I say we support this since it's much easier to remove then a microscopic RFID chip. Think of the black market for tattoo removal and the money involved in re-inking us after removal.
