Love Linux? Love your Mac? No you don't - not like the hundreds of people out there with Apple and Tux tattoos. But even then, that's not hard core - it's not like Apple is just a Web 2.0 darling du jour.
You want devotion? Then how about a permanent reminder of a perhaps-soon-to-be forgotten piece of the ever-changing Web. We say go for it! It's only going be there for forever... or as long as it takes for your skin to heal and you can get it covered up with something else.
Farmville Hot Rod Tractor
Remember back in 2008 when pictures of what was probably the very first Twitter tattoo - a Fail Whale - started circulating on the Web? That was a guy who goes by the name of Critter. He's actually on a bigger mission than just Twitter. He's trying to sleeve his entire right leg in tech-related logos. Top row, left to right: Fail Whale and twhirl, Seesmic, Freezer Burns. Bottom row: Old-school Adobe Cold Fusion logo, Adobe AIR, TriOut.
