Reader Dean comments on the Naked Flight blog post that nude passport photos, to determine any or all distinguishing marks, would be a good idea too. We agree! In times of passport theft and forgery, of people entering countries on false papers, having scars, birthmarks, caesarean scars, tattoos and any other distinguishing mark listed on a passport, something that could be checked by border controls, might reduce illegal immigrants. It’s hard to pass yourself off as someone else if the passport says you’ve got a bald eagle tattooed across your entire back, and yet it’s curiously absent from your skin.

It will never happen, of course, but we still love the idea of naked passports.
