You might have gotten excited over Verizon's 4G LTE and CES announcements recently, but wait until you see what a true fanboy does when his favorite carrier launches a slew of new phones and features…

Seriously? I don't get why anyone would be fan of a company that is essentially a utility bill. Why aren't people getting American Electric Power or Columbia Gas tattooed?
I swear people are idiots...I love Apple, but I am not tattooing their logo into my skin. They make a product and I buy it. Fair exchange.
But maybe they are paying him?

i dont know, in the 20's and 40's logos were pretty cool looking. course hes stupid. anyone with tattoos on their hands isnt usually a rocket scientist. (anyone who disputed that find me a rocket scientist with a hand tattoo)

I could also say that you aren't a rocket scientist either...are you on the same level as this idiot? I hope not.

This tat is almost as ridiculous as your snakebites.

nope, not a rocket scientist nor do i play one on tv. sad to say in my line i work i cant have a hand tattoo myself....there was i time i wanted one. not a verizon one mind u but looking back my idea was really dumb anyway. if society evolved to the point where it wasnt "unprofessional" i might rock one. just not of THAT
kinda wish i was a rocket scientist so i could b all "yes, yes i am" lol

LOL. Thats what I was thinking. Who ever thought that telephones and telephone companies would become fashion statements one day. I certainly didnt.

To tattoo a company logo on your skin is amongst the dumbest things you could possibly do. But a wireless company? There has to be more to the story.. Money has to be exchanging hands somewhere.. The ink has to be removable. I'm puzzled and, more so, ashamed of humanity.

I know a few companies that will pay someone like $250 or so for getting their logo tattooed on them. There was a guy that got a tattoo on his forehead and got paid for it. But Verizon seems too big to care about something like that....you never know though.

15 years ago, AOL was pretty awesome at the time too. Anyone have an AOL tattoo that they'd want to show off right now? Who's not to say that VZW nosedives in 15 years? Or gets split up? Or goes bankrupt? 15 years in the tech biz may as well be 100. If that's indeed a real tattoo, it'd be interesting to see it's significance in 2026.

No! AOL was not cool 15 years ago. AOL was for n00bs then.
Maybe Compuserve could have been a cool tattoo at one time....nah...

Imagine him dropping that on a CS rep when trying to get his upgrade date moved up! He's definitely not pulling the "I'm going to At&t" deal. ;-)

I cant wait for Verizon to screw this guy over on his bill and make him want to cancel, that will be the day!

lol!!! i do believe that verizon is the best wireless carrier out there but this is just insane. i myself have a lot of tats. none visable with a long sleeve shirt and pants so i can remain profesional if need be, but this is stupid. why would you have a tattoo of a corporation on your hand. i can understand maybe a barcode or something to display that your a product of corporate america but i dont think that is the case in this situation. and verizon wireless of all things. lol this is so ridiculous.

Haha I love how everyone is going nuts over this. I wouldn't be surprised if verizon didn't pay this guy to do it. Many companies will pay you a nice bit of money to get their name or logo tattooed on you.
I could understand a apple logo or android green bot tattoo, yes its dumb but I bet he was paid.
