Andy Love | 2036 comments This could be Pohl and Kornbluth's "The Space Merchants" - at least that book does has the number tattoo business (though the main character is not framed for murder - he's just sent to a prison-like facility where he has to do unpleasant physical labor (since his identity is switched with a poor person's). The Space Merchants

Here's an excerpt from the book where the tattoo comes up https://books.google.com/books?id=ziZ...
