Tesla tattoo anyone?

Tesla tattoo anyone?

Tesla fan boys, anyone got a tattoo yet? :-)

I am thinking about it. Combined with this one perhaps, one on each fore arm...

Does a lightening bolt count?

Brian H | December 14, 2012

I'm 66, and so glad I didn't get any tats when young and stupid.

Do yourself a HUGE favor, and at least get a tattoo of something original (your creation), and near and dear to your heart. In other words... if I designed the Model S, I might get a tattoo of it.

Otherwise, it's a free world, so do whatever floats your boat.

After considering changing his name to (first name) Microsoft (last name) Zune, the Zune Tattoo Guy has covered at least one of his three Zune logo tattoos with a different logo. My takeaway is to wait until at least one more model is out the door before committing to the tesla T in indelible ink.

tezzla.SoCal | March 13, 2015

Pictures or it didn't happen.

MileHighMotoring | March 13, 2015

@Brian so true.

How do I post pictures

teslaman24601 | March 13, 2015

It's on my Facebook. James grace I have the rainbow triangle

johncrab | March 13, 2015

I think what always held me back was a personal lack of artistic talent.

Sully | March 13, 2015

I lIove cool ink on OTHER people...
Never inked my own body

teslaman24601 | March 13, 2015

It's my first tattoo

bobrobert | March 13, 2015

The search for identity is like a surfer scanning the seven oceans always looking for the next, perhaps bigger & better wave to ride. If you live more than 10 years longer you could run out of skin trying to record each dream you've had and role you've played, and while memory will generally cast yourself in the best possible light, marks in the flesh tend in the opposite direction.
A tattoo may declare who you are or aspire to be, but such a permanent statement of “I am this” implicitly excludes anything even better than you could become; what may start out as self-expression is likely to become self-limiting. You will outlive all your definitions.

I am going to get one. On the right calf, T symbol, green with some other features around it. This company has helped to start a revolution we will look back on with a smile !!!

dborn @nsw.au | March 13, 2015

Never understood why people want to deface themselves.....

SCCRENDO | March 13, 2015

@dborn. +1. I think they look tacky.

Shall we revisit the Tesla tramp stamp?

PhillyGal | March 13, 2015

Excellent idea for a tattoo!

If I could trade in all my crappy/small/cheap/teenage tattoos for one really good one, I would do it in a heartbeat!

Leroy | March 13, 2015

As a very BIG Harley Davidson rider in my youth I resisted the call to putting their many great tattoos on my body. Now an extremely happy early adaptor of TESLA, and while I love my MS 60, I still will resist the tattoo rage. At my age the car shows itself and no one wants to look at my decrepit body. Enjoy the ride.

Shesmyne2 | March 13, 2015

Tattoos & piercings are at a different level with this generation.
There isn't a lot of thought to 'forever' or,'permanent' as much as there is to 'cool'
There's a reason its called a 'tramp stamp'

Hell I couldn't get my ears pierced until I was 16 cause then I would be a 'hussy' or
perceived as 'cheap'

Yeah, guess I just dated myself.
I still get to drive a Tesla.

Still Grinning ;-)

teslaman24601 - Old logo!

Nice job! Not!

SCCRENDO | March 14, 2015

McLary. Have you got any tattoos or piercings? How about one across your back "anyone who asks a question on a tesla forum is an idiot".

PhillyGal | March 14, 2015

@Shesmyne2 - Sadly, something leftover from your generation is that some of you are far too judgmental.

Was my friend not thinking about forever when she got a tattoo in her husband's handwriting after he was diagnosed with a terminal illness? If it was on her lower back, would she be a tramp? Should anyone judge what actions making being a 31 year old widow easier to deal with?

I had one very bad teacher in high school who told me I wouldn't succeed in life because of tattoos. He was wrong. But then again he also tried to force a student to read her paper out loud when the subject was her own childhood abuse. My tattooed, hooligan self stood up for her and against that P0S!

If you're going to make a comment on a thread about someone's tattoo despite disliking them, perhaps you could instead say "Not for me but I applaud your enthusiasm."

Shesmyne2 | March 14, 2015

@PhillyGal
Personally not for me-that being said I happen to think that if someone is going to tattoo themselves it
SHOULD be for the reason your friend got one.
To have a meaning. A sentiment.
But I think something like a T or, like my friend who USED to work at Apple, got a rainbow apple on her ankle
and no longer is employed there and can't remove it is just silly. Why advertise on your body?
When I was younger I wanted a unicorn on my back shoulder. Lately I have considered my parents birth dates
as I lost them both.
All I'm saying is if you're going to ink your body permanently it should be something you will like to live with
Forever.

I meant no judgement.

I feel sorry for a gal that got an "Aldo Nova" tattoo.

She didn't even get paid for the advertising.

Captain_Zap | March 14, 2015

@Tikiman

The only tattoo that I could really appreciate was a child's drawing of her mother with her mother's hands shaped like hearts. My friend's daughter was killed in an accident weeks after drawing the picture.

The tattoo artist said it was his best work. I'd agree. It looked just like the original. My friend was very tattoo adverse until there was one that felt right.

MileHighMotoring | March 14, 2015

I'm thinking of all the people with Fisker tattoos right now. They get to enjoy them for the rest of their lives. (I love Tesla and know it's not going away, but still)

teslaman24601 | March 15, 2015

Next tattoo is P85D across my bicep

Captain_Zap | March 15, 2015

@teslaman24601

Just remember the ones that got P85+ tattoos. Maybe someday they can change the "+" to a "B".
If not, they can just put a bird on it.

So lame.

geekdad.604 | April 6, 2015

Just met an owner at the Burlington SC with a Tesla logo tattooed on his right calf!
