Rackspace Tattoo at SXSW

I just got back from SXSW this year and while I was there I happened to be on the floor of the trade show in time to catch the above tattoo just getting finished. (Big thanks to @Thweetch for giving me the heads up.) The tattoo is the logo for Rackspace. Rackspace is one of the best web hosting companies out there and they do both cloud hosting and the typical managed server hosting. Geeky Tattoos is hosted with them, so naturally I’m a big fan. Not big enough to get a tattoo of their logo, but maybe if they give me some free hosting we’ll talk. :)

The “Racker” above is Michael Long (@theredrecruiter), an employee of Rackspace, who got the tattoo to show that he’s “fanatical” about the company. Here’s a video from the inking:

UPDATE: Michael has also posted about it on his site.
