So, anyway I being an Apple addict, and also a huge Biology geek was running through some geeky tat ideas...OK, here is my favorite so far...do not laugh...I really like the Apple genius atom thingie...I mean it just suits me in lots of ways...well, what ya'll think? HONESTLY!

GG: we may need Scientific Evidence of the existing tattoo, in context, before we can make a decision on the replacement.

I think an apple genius tattoo wouldd pretty much rock. I would consider stealing that idea if a) I weren't afraid of needles and b) loved Apple.

Angryjungman has a pretty awesome Mac tattoo, maybe if he pops in, he'll link a photo of it.

Wait a little while, you may be able to get a programmable tattoo

Those programmable tattoos rock. I'd get that.

I like the Genius logo idea. It's cool. Do it.

Hey jung...OT, but I saw this today:

(Obviously I know about the original, but you might be interested to know that it's gotten a new spotlight.)

I liked this one:
quote:

My wife was a college professor when we were dating; I was studying biochemistry. I wrote a perl script that treated the letters of my proposal as a string of amino acids, translating them to a corresponding mRNA transcript. Then I sent her an email, claiming I needed help with my biochem homework: translating an mRNA to amino acids.

Later, in her office, she fired up DNAstar, translated the message, looked at the peptide sequence a while, then said, “This mRNA is messed up: the first residue isn’t even a methionine… it’s not polyadenylated… HEY!!” Once she saw her name at the beginning of the sequence, it was all over.

This year is our sixth anniversary, and we have a beautiful 4 1/2-year-old daughter.

Emphasis mine. [Applause]

Not sure if you actually have gotten the cover-up done, but a couple things to consider.

There is a lot of whitespace in the logo. Will it actually cover up what you have now without having to add a bunch of miscellaneous crap to the design? You may be taking simplicity and tossing it out the window and instead may wind up with some gawdawful design that doesn't make it better, only worse.

Now that I have hit this third decade, I have realized that branding myself is a pretty stupid idea. Think about tattooing Bon Jovi on your shoulder. Great idea in '92, would you still do it now?

Laser, that strange chemical ink they are producing and a host of other methods to reduce and remove tattoos are still expensive, and can be painful.

I had the prerequisite stoner tattoos from back when I was much younger and dumber. And now I am covering them up with stuff that is actually personal and have some sort of meaning to me. really look at what you are considering on adding and ask yourself, "if this no longer is true of me in a decade, would I still be proud to have this on me?"
