Ivan Morrison is a guy who really loves his geek ink. He currently has three tattoos that revolve around his IT career in Montreal. He’s been in the industry for over a decade and loves it (even enough to start his own support forum: Ivan’s Support Haus). The first tech tattoo he got was the Windows XP logo back in March of 2001 just before XP was about to launch. Luckily Windows XP has stood the test of time and is still going strong, no doubt providing Ivan with plenty of tech support opportunities. And what’s a better recommendation than “Our IT guy is so good, he has Windows tattooed on his arm!”?
But last year he was itching for some new ink and didn’t want a Vista logo, so he went with the “iGoogle” logo that he saw day in and out when he loaded his web browser. But that just wasn’t enough. Since he had run out of arms, it was time to move to his chest. In August of 2008, he got the Office 2007 logo inked into his skin, complete with the “TM” in the corner. True attention to detail! He gives a tip of the hat to the Office team by saying “Thanks Office team, without you, my day would be…. just a pile of Notes!”
What’s next Ivan?
