I would have to be in dire straights. The contract would have to be limited to a certain amount of advertising time, include the present cost of removal, and about a year’s income.

Only if it was a cause that I believed in and it was a temporary tattoo.

I used to facilitate a hotel brand training class for new general managers. One night after class, a group of managers went out, and probably after a few drinks, got a tattoo of the hotel brand’s logo. I’ve often wondered how many of them regretted it later.

Maybe—but it would have to be a very small tattoo and a whole lot of money.

I’d get a henna tattoo for money. I’d put a logo on my car.

But to be honest, very few people see my body – ever – so it would be a bad investment on the company’s part.

No – I have enough. It i were indigent and hungry, then probably yes.

No way. I would only get a tattoo for individual expression. No lover’s names, or corporate logos at all.

It would depend on what, where, how big and how much.

PoliteGirl's avatar

certainly yes!

Ditto @canidmajor.

“It would depend on what, where, how big and how much.”

Never say no.

Not likely. It would be VERY expensive and my ass would be cheaper than my forehead.

Depends on where. My face? No.

Under the conditions that

A: Certain areas are a no-no

B: It will be, as with any billboard, for a specified period of time (although a renewal may be considered)


C: As with any billboard once the agreed upon contract has expired the advertisement will be removed or covered over

then absolutely I would. It would not, however, be cheap.

ibstubro's avatar

Removal is much more painful and expensive that the tattoo itself.

That said, I’d either choose and advertisement I could live with, or one that could be stylized into something cool. Under Armor would be easy.
No face or hands.

Eh, tattoos are not at all painful, so it’s not much of a stretch for anything to be more painful than them.

Buttonstc's avatar

No. I’m a real chickenshit about pain, no matter how minor it may seem to others with a higher pain tolerance.

I had a friend that had a small Calvin (Calvin and Hobbs) tattooed on his outside shoulder. I much admired it. He said it wasn’t any big deal, having it done. At the time, it made me think, as I could have had the same done practically for free.

The same friend later had a tattoo put on his shoulder blade. He said it hurt like murder, and if he had it to do again, he would not.

Ended my flirtation with tattooing.
