21 Tech brand tattoos: Yahoo!, Google, Apple body art

Tattoos are badass, but a Cisco Systems tattoo? The company killed the Flip camcorder. Not cool. Having said that, I can still understand wanting to be the talk of the LAN party. Those 3900 series routers are hot. I struggle however, when it comes to trying to comprehend the motivation behind the Real Media tattoo.

Apart from the music industry, I can’t think of any other industry that begets so many evangelical brand fanatics as the technology industry. Check out this mosaic of 21 tech brand tattoos we picked from a list of 80 consumer brands.

Can you identify them all? Yeah, me too, we’re big tech geeks you and I, apparently.

    I bet the Apple and Cisco guys were annoyed when the companies rebranded lol. On the other hand, they could sell the tattoos as memorabilia.
