Today was an exciting day!
I just flew back from NYC, where I’ve been hanging out for a week to meet with my team mates (Team Social FTW). After some well deserved sleep, I headed out to Queen of Hearts tattoo parlor for an appointment with my favorite tattoo artist – Pedro Mascarenhas (yeah… flash website… I know…)- to get some fresh ink in me.
As most of you know, I’ve been a WordPress enthusiast for quite some time (2005-ish). WordPress, as a platform and community, has been a very important part of who I am today as a web designer and as a person. Therefore, getting a WordPress related tattoo makes perfect sense.
The decision to tattoo something WordPress related is not necessarily because of my new job at Automattic, although it kinda served as a catalyst - the icing on the cake – for me to go through with it!
So I got, not one, but two WordPress related tattoos! Check it out:
It’s funny I’m getting these in real ink. It feels like a full-circle moment here. Once, not so long ago, a dear friend got me to place a fake WordPress tattoo on my arm (the other one, where I have a Mr.WannaB name tattooed already) in WordCamp SF 2008 – I bet he’s proud of me now!!!
I also did a small movie clip of the experience (too bad I only remembered my iPhone does that when we were finishing the second part). Loud tattoo machine noise ahead…
I’m really proud of these tattoos. Hope y’all like it too!
Peace and Love
