I've been thinking about this for a long time, but now the time is right. Since the trip is quite costly (for a student), drastic measures are needed.
So I'm going to sell ad space on my shoulder :) Even though that might sound odd, I'm 100% serious with this, and if the offer is right, I'm gonna go for it.
There is some restrictions though. Firstly the tattoo should be of good taste and secondly, since it's a shoulder, that restricts the size of the ad. Other than those, the tattoo could be pretty much anything. And as far as I know, no one in Finland has ever done this, so that might attract some interest too :)
The tattoo itself will be permanent, so it will be there for the rest of my life. Think of this as a good chance for gaining long term coverage :) Besides, this will be my first tattoo too.
This place here should have had a snarky picture of my shoulder with the text "you ad here", but since my camera died and I couldn't find a good stock photo, I hope you can use your imagination with this one :)
I'm not gonna state a minimum bid at this point (I have one in mind), since I want to see the general interest for these kind of deals. Consider this as a sneak preview, since the website dedicated to this will be out in a month or so. But if you're interested, let me know and I will gladly tell more.
By the way, everyone keeps telling me that "shouldn't the tattoo have a meaning and be personal"? Well, what could be more personal and meaningful? This tattoo could very well pay our honeymoon and let us fulfill one of our biggest dreams. I would totally call that as a "meaningful tattoo".
I have also put up the chip in counter (which you can see on the right) for those kind people who would like to assist me on this "project". I'd like to thank everyone who has already contributed, that means a lot to me and you guys are awesome!
That's my current plan, hopefully it pays off. In the meantime, I'll continue the saving process :D
