Question Methods of permanent individual identification?

Wondering if any herp researchers in the group know of means to permanently identify individual snakes?

I know some people have used microchips for larger species in private collections, but wondered if anyone involved in research might know of other methods.

Have tattoos or tags been used in catch and release studies where an individual snake needs to be identified - or do they rely on individual skin pattern identification? Any other ideas?
