Geeky or Cool?

MSNBC recently ran an article on geeky tattoos.  It’s amazing what some people are willing to put on their bodies.  While I look at some and say “Wow!”, others make me question how that person will feel about their tattoo when they are 50!  My favorite one (being the geek that I am) is the one with the pi symbol made up of binary digits, but I also thought this one was interesting.

  1. I would worry more about what the tattoo would look like when the person is 50...from what I have seen, tattoos don't look the same after a few years. Are you planning a tattoo? ~E

  2. My tolerance for pain has gone down over the years, so that would be a no on getting a tattoo. ;)
