Tech Tattoos: The Good, the Bad, and the R U SRS?!

The Blue Screen of Death. Really.

The infamous Blue Screen of Death tattoo has been making the rounds of the Internet for quite some time now, and it's either the best geeky tattoo ever or the worst geeky tattoo ever.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm always trying to avoid the BSoD. Having it permanently etched on my arm might, well, make that a little more difficult. But I'll give the owner of this arm credit: It's comprehensive, it's well done, and it must've taken a lot of Windows 98 crashes for him to grab all the text.

What's that? This slide show of tech-tattoo fiascos hasn't properly terrified you, and you're going to get the Twitter bird tattooed on your forehead if it's the last thing you do, gosh darn it?

Hey, I’m not going to stop you, but I will suggest that you follow these steps to ensure tattoo bliss:

1. Think.

2. Bring a picture, so your artist knows what they're working with.

3. Don't get a tattoo of your iPhone 3GS, because you know Apple will come out with a new version in, like, three days.

And, in the meantime, may I suggest that you try on something less permanent, such as a T-shirt?
