Nerd Tattoos: Computers

At my ripe old age of 26, I can remember when no one had computers.  My family got our first computer ( a hand-me-down) back in 1993.  I still remember it’s black and orange glow well.  And cell phones were the size of pterodactyls…. but don’t let get me get too sentimental.  Now computers are everywhere, and if you take a grown man’s computer away, he will cry like a baby.  There are different sides as well, mac vs. pc, C++ vs. Cobol, etc.  In growing numbers people are beginning to express their computer  love geekishness with tattoos.
