Product placement? (thoughts on ephemera)

I know, I know, this is old news. But it seems important during this “holiday shopping season” to mention the “act in haste, repent at leisure” problem in tattoo art. Using a few brain cells while picking your design is vitally important!
This guy made the news recently, with a series of Zune-logo tattoos. It made me wonder how a person who got, say, a Commodore logo tattooed on him/herself 25 years ago would feel about it today.

I don’t think the “here today, gone tomorrow” principle applies to any field of endeavor more than it does to trendy consumer electronics. Well, maybe trendy pop stars come in a close second (anyone for a Shaun Cassidy tattoo?)

I hope you'll submit my posts to your favorite social media sites. Just don't "submit" them to your own site pretending to be yours. Thanks!

I got my first tattoo when I was 46. I hope the people who read this blog don't have to wait that long. I love talking about body art.

  1. We Commodore fanatics have a passion for our bitty boxes comparable to one’s first romantic love. It never dies. I can’t speak for this Zune fellow, but can say Commodore machines were more than trendy consumer electronics to those of us who still dabble in them.

    • I have two C128s, a C64, a 1540, a 1541, a 1571, and a bunch of Commodore format disks in storage. But I don’t have a monitor to hook them up to any more. I still can’t bear to part with them. 🙂

    FWIW, I’ve got a Commodore logo on my right arm. I’m still just as excited about it as I ever was.
