Camera Tattoos

Want to surprise him or her? What about a camera tattoo. You’re the first among your friends, promised. Hesitating? Hey, you’d not be the first after all. Here’s a selection of some of the finest camera examples that go under the skin. Maybe you have all the gear. But you sure don’t have a camera tattoo. Time to get inked up! Preferably on the forehead. It’s the ultimate proof of dedication.

Seems that camera bodies are more popular with women and a Canon user seems more likely to tattoo his or her gear preference… there’s even the occasional Leica tattoo. Don’t say this ain’t no inspirational post. So what’s the ultimate photography tattoo you’d choose? Mine’s definitely the last one:

    Ant then few years down the road they go: “Oh my, what was I thinking…?!”

    • Mauricio

      Haha, so true :-)

      • What if… I got this beautiful OM-D tattoo and want to switch to NEX-FF?! And then Fujifilm comes up with an irresistible X.

    Dan, looking at your favorite one, I can only hope this wasn’t a real tattoo but a felt pen drawing.

    It’s just too atrocious to be real…that can’t be real right?!

    • Well I haven’t met her in person, but hey I found it on the Internet, it must be real!

      Judging from other tattoos this one at least implies a certain degree of unique style.

    I have never liked tattoos and I really do not like the camera ones above . Well, a couple are sweet. I hope some are photo-shop jobs especially the larger ones.
