Saw a guy near Seven Dials a few years back with "Helvetica" tattooed in Helvetica (obviously) on the inside of his right arm.
It made me adamant I would never get a tattoo, especially of a typeface and ESPECIALLY not Helvetica.
Imagine how bad the kerning will get as he gets older?

Very cool. I'm a little surprised at the results, I thought less people had tattoos!

I'm putting together new post over on my blog - www.kylesteed.com - and am looking for designers that already have tattoos that would be interested in showcasing their favorite one along with why they chose it.

This graphic designer has a tattoo.

i wonder if there is a tattoo artist anywhere without any tattoos himself? I doubt it

this graphic designer has 5 tattoos, and is now doing tattooing (it's like hand drawing a custom logo onto someone)

Neither am I a designer nor do I have a tattoo - and consequently find this post uninteresting. It's a very old post as well - and I was looking for something a little more up to date. I'll come back later and maybe have another look then.

This is an interesting point. I have never seen a tattoo artist without a tattoo, and I have had many done. However, I bet there is one out there.

Damn... I completely fall into the "designer-without-tattoo-because-I-can't-decide-on-design", very frustrating.

I'd say that 99.9% of all tattoo artists are tattooed, I've never seen one not having a single tattoo and I've met probably a thousand of them... I think it would be cool not having any tattoos and get really good, He/she would surely become a celeb...

I think there would be a very strong correlation to the number of artistic types that have tattoos to the number of non-artsy folks who don't. Would be interesting to see actual data on this.

This graphic designer has a pantone swatch (outline black) on his wrist - I'm 482 C

McE can we get a picture of that?

I think it really depends on the lifestyle of a graphic designer. Tattoos are more acceptable in our society especially for females compare to maybe 10 or 15 years ago. There are less stigma on body paint and I believe that the designs are even more fashionable and attractive. So I also believe that there are definitely graphic designers that have tattoos on them. They probably even designed it themselves.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

I'm friends with a few graphic designers, and neither of them have tattoos--which hadn't surprised me until I read this post.

I have tatoos and i am a designer. On one arm i have a traditional tatoo (gothic style) with my childrens names.
On the other i plan to get something contemporary, maybe a dot to dot, or to do list.
