Among the interesting new technologies that will change our lives in 2007* is this idea of removable tattoos. Made of biodigestible ink that can be released into the body (thus removing the tattoo) with a simple laser treatment, these new inks will finally knock down that last barrier stopping us all from running out and marking our individuality all over ourselves a la Jesse James**.
But the thing I found most amusing? The accompanying picture showing the nebbishy tax accountant flexing his “guns” in a desperate attempt to impress the totally hot tattoo artist. You can see it all in his facial expression – a look that says “Yeah baby, now that this removable ink is out I can finally roll out the crazy fun times while still maintaining my mad risk-averse street cred with my CPA homies! Plus, this chick totally wants me, I can *so* tell… Woot!”
The hot tattoo woman though, is probably thinking “Hmmm…I wonder if he can tell that these highlights aren’t natural?”
* Why is it that all the life-changing ones never come out until next year? Wait, was Tickle-Me-Elmo TMX supposed to be life-changing? Crap! No wonder everyone wants one…
