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.

Nerd Tattoos: Science

Nerd factor tattoos,  installment 2!   As a kid, I really wanted to be a marine biologist and enjoyed biology.  The love didn’t last, but my appreciation for nerddom did.  Here are some some geeky but awesome tattoos for your enjoyment.

Nerd Tatoos: Math

Nerd: an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit.  I love nerd tattoos, so I’m starting a little series devoted to nerd tattoos.  Our first instalment is devoted to math nerd tattoos.  Love the math people, love the math.

Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I love this piece by BigFatRobot because it has tattoo style, nerd factor, and a serious sense of humor.  You can pick up your own copy of “Bettie Trooper” as a print or T-shirt.  Go check out BigFatRobot’s site on redbubble here.
