Tech tattoos: The good, the bad, and the crazy

Ubuntu

Facebook logos, binary codes, Steve Jobs quotes — tech-inspired tattoos run the gamut. We found some photos of the most bold, creative, and geeky tattoos out there.

This guy is such a fan of the open source Ubuntu Linux operating system fan, he had many different versions of the logo tattooed on his arm.

I'm looking to get an Ubuntu tattoo inside a bike cog. It's more of a play on "I am because we are" and includes my love for bicycling. I would love to get a tux tattoo someday though...

I have seen some tattoos that were very beautiful and very eye-catching these all are stupid I wouldn't put any of these on my body for anything these guys need a life out of all these that you have on here the only one that I like the best is the one that shows the binary form under the skin that is a good tattoo I like it

There is no good only bad and they are all crazy, without even looking at them.  Like a couple of others have said dumb article about dumb people defacing their bodies.

An article about stupid people permanently defacing their bodies complete with pictures to remove all doubt of human intelligence is newsworthy why?

Another reason NOT to do social media.

I'm definitely sporting Tux on my left upper arm, but wearing the super hero uniform of a character I created in the former City of Heroes MMO.

I have the custom smiley I made up back in the early 90's tattoo'd just above the inside of my elbow *8^)
