My friend and I were talking this morning and he was looking for ideas for his next tattoo(his fourth). I told him he should do what some people have done and sell space on his body to a company as promotion. Now we talk regularly about Bitcoin and given my latest exploits into this world I said, maybe you should get a bitcoin tat, and have somebody sponsor it. I told him I would give him .75 btc for a tat with my address listed under the Bitcoin Logo. He scoffed at such a low price. He said if I could hit 12BTC he would do it.
   I propose this, if we pool our resources, and a bunch of people donate with the highest bid(or top 3 highest if it gets up high enough), that my friend will have a Bitcoin tattoo with the winner's address written underneath (or top 3 if the highest bid doesnt match his quote). I think it would be funny as shit to see this jackass walking around with a tat of BTC on his body. Winning bid picks placement and design.

The only way this will work is for all money to be held in escrow until proof is given that the ink is on his body, with dox from the parlor(in this case it will be either Tattoo Lou's on Long Island or Blackstone Ink in Woodstock Ga(Blackstone is a friend and I am willing to pay for the air fare to get us down there from Long Island to see this happen). So a)who is willing to hold the money in escrow, and b)is anybody willing to pay an idiot to get a tat with their address on it?

A QR Code would be better so people could scan it with their phones and donate!

Brilliant! Thanks for the idea. I'm not sure how accurate a QR code would be on skin given it's less-than-flat surface area though.

I'd suggest Firstbits or a shortlink, because a full address is just too long and there's no copy and paste Smiley

I concur TradeFortress, but the entire idea is so full of jackassery that a full address would add to the comical nature of this entire idea. There has to be a way to make this work. While I am here, anybody have any idea for the actual artwork? I will talk to the artists about whether or not a QR will work on skin, because that seems to make the most sense. If he did it on a more flatish area of his body like a tramp stamp then maybe it will work. But I still worry about the human error factor in creating a QR from a stencil.

Thanks John, I doubt this is heading anywhere. Doesn't seem to be any real interest, just curiosity.
