    For a moment there I thought it was going to say Nikon. What a tool I'd say! Even still, what a tool. I mean, what if he switches platforms one day? If he ever gets a job doing whatever he does and they force Canon on him what will he do?

    However, to each their own. The tattoo is actually very decent looking, albeit rather out of place for some reason. It's too large and it would appear this was the first tattoo. I would have gone a bit smaller tbh and went with someone who did a little better with the shading because it looks like it is a 2D camera hovering. Does that make sense?

    Meh. Zoom lens. You'd think he could at least choose some classic, fast prime. Also, note he's shooting in "P" mode. Amateur! :cool:

    Nikon salesman?

    The tattoo itself is a bit big, and it's not drawn very well, (and what's that odd thing on the end of the lenses?) but a long sleeve will cover most of it.

    I've heard the USA is more uptight about these things, but here in London, a tat like that won't automatically disqualify you from most jobs. Having the right attitude and knowing what you're doing is more important.

    He makes a permanent mark on his body of a camera, and yet he still skimps on the lens?


    Plus, Program mode? And 1/100 at f/5? Those aren't even full stops! It's like the halfway extension point from a kit lens.

    Perhaps the tattoo was intended for a different part of his body. You know, something that extends and contracts.

    Manually controlled zoom I presume.

    Long sleeves cover it, I have employed and been employed by high level executives with tattoos. Maybe not in your bubble, but I know people with tattoos that do real well. :rolleyes:

    I just happen to think it's a ****** looking job. The drawing is terrible and as I've said, the shading or lack thereof on the camera sucks. Alongside the whole display as someone else pointed out.

    Not my bag but he's stuck with it.

    Ummm err ok... if that is was floats your boat. Guess I will give them an A for dedication, but that is about it.

    Though I love your comments about being in P mode and all :)

    I wasnt making any character judgement on the person:cool:

    Just that largely in a white collar industry, having a long tatoo like that isnt say encouraged

    That was my initial thought. Classic over some huge zoom. Terrible though really. Really poor line work and there is no dimension to it, no proper shading to give it life and pop.

    I think I've been in the "white collar" industry a bit longer than you and you're not entirely right. Perhaps your field is slightly different but frankly a tattoo tells me nothing about the person's work ethic and ability.

    The tattoo reminds me of a drawing exercise done in art class where we had to draw something from memory blindfolded. This is pretty much how mine looked, I mean not the subject but the line work. That tattoo artist should be kicked.

    I love tattoos, but that is very ghetto. It can easily be touched up, though. Wait a year until it starts to fade, then have an detail-oriented artist give it an overhaul with a single needle at a medium/slow speed. It can still come out amazing.

    Hell a prison tat would have come out better.

    Correct, but there are also such things as first impressions, for both the employer and the customer. Get a tattoo by all means, just make sure it is something you can easily cover up.

    I worked for a company that had another firm in to do a computer roll out, and one of the guys had quite a few tattoos, he had to wear a long sleeve shirt under their corporate polo shirt to cover them up.. in the middle of summer... in a building that didn't have great air conditioning.

    A tattoo in and of itself isn't such a rebel thing these days, but where you have it, how many, how big etc determines how acceptable it really is. The little butterfly on the ankle...meh... the skulls and guns & knives down your arm... umm... not so appealing :)

    He'll regret that in a few months unless he can somehow get it touched up to look better. Really bad job that one!

    That's a horrible tattoo job.

    Plus if you are going to pick a Nikon lens to tattoo on your body it better be the 58mm Noct.

    Forgetting the questions like why and what for and just commenting on the tattoo itself, it is a really really badly done tattoo.

    WOW, I seriously would rather have a teletubbies tattoo on my forearm than that! Definitely the worst tattoo ever.

    One thing cool though, it seems to be a D700 with a 24-70mm lens, I gots it!

    That's funny, and he is shooting in "P" mode. What a tool.
