OpenBSD dedication

Contributed by jose on from the i'll-show-you dept.

A semi-anonymous person sent me some of their pics showing a unique tatoo. They have gotten a blowfish tatoo on their shoulder (see pic 1 and pic 2 ). Pretty neat! Anyone else have OpenBSD tatoos they want to share with others?

    wireframe daemon head would look better, but that's just my $0.02.

          Perhaps he was posting from a public pc that happened to run Windows? Or a friends' computer.
          Besides, these MS ports showing up as filtered could also mean that the ISP is filtering these ports, for obvious reasons.

          And last but not least: It's not nice to portscan without permission of the one you're scanning.

      Probably hard to make it look good thought. I would want to have a small bsd daemon on my hand between the thumb and index finger but maybe that's a stupid place to put one on and maybe it's hard to make them in the ~3cm height scale.

      Anyone got experience with tattoos and know how hard it's to make small goodlooking ones?

        aliquis: it should be no problem if you went to a good tattooartist. I have seen tattoos like 1-2 cm with alot of details. It's all about the tattooartist.

        Those tattoos have to be old on the pics because they look very weared out..

    I was thinking of doing your average daemon as tatoo. Even asked McKusick for copyright..

    Very cool!!!! WOWOWOWOW I don't know what it's called but it's like a sticker that you press to your skin and put water and then you have a (toy) tattoo for a few days.

      We used to get them out of Cracker-Jack boxes all the time when I was a kid...

    The Romans viewed tatoos as "mark of slaves".

    This always stuck with me. My generation is going to be pretty gross when their in their 80's with all the tatoo's going on now.

    (But the wealthy will just get a skin transplant anyhow probably)

      Somoans regard tattooing as a rite of passage from boy to man.

      Indians used tattoos for tribal affiliation.

      Your generation might be from the 70s and 80s so yeah, when they are 80 they will look ugly to you. People that get their tattoos in the 90s and 2k have the benefit of new technology regarding ink and tattoo guns and won't look as bad if they take care of their art.

      But most of the poeple that are inked up and 80 won't give anycare about what people think of their looks. Some people get tattooed for personal reasons not to impress people or to fit in.

      erm, Roman Soldiers were given tatoo's bearing the sign of their allegience.

    3. By Anonymous Coward () on

      and who was it that captured, MARKed, and worked to death these slaves? ROMANS.

    1. By EN () on

      Yeah....hopefully they don't =)

    "Dude, do you have the new tatoo?"
    "Go fish."
    "Dude, that blows!"
    "Just like this story."
    "Dude, don't be burst'n my bubble."
