Furthermore, the "number" of a man could be referring to a quantity as well, that ties into his name.
The number in scripture, is separate from the mark.
"except one who has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (NIV) Rev 13:17

I've been thinking about your body-marking theory.
I still think it breaks down on the point that Revelation is not talking about everybody getting a different number, which is what happens with identification numbers.
The whole point of the verse in Revelation seems to be that everybody gets the same number or symbol, viz. whatever ideentifies them as belonging to the Beast.
