A guy who is “turned on” by thumbs

Get it? Cause that’s a Power Button symbol this genius has had permanently embossed on his right thumb via what looks to be a fairly painful process known as skin removal.

Now, I have my share of regrettable tattoos, but skin removal seems a little out there even for me. Although I must say the thought of being able to give everyone the finger while pretending to be promoting the benefits of FireWire DOES sound rather appealing…

    The power one’s awesome, but not sure about USB/FW. The problem with stuff like skin removal (for me anyway) is that you rarely heal and scar that evenly, so the lines won’t be as clean, but it’ll still look pretty cool.

    Guess this would be the difference between a geek and a nerd.

    Geek is gooood. Nerd is baaaad.

    I know you’re kidding 😉

    @Jason – your problem with “skin removal” is that it doesn’t heal evenly? You don’t have a problem with self-inflicted wounds? This ain’t tattooing. And wouldn’t a simple ?henna tattoo work just as well without the inherent personality disorder? A recognizable design doesn’t negate the psychosis of self-inflicted wounds. In fact, trying to use that make it “acceptable” just makes it more severe.
