The interesting article at Bmezine opens with John Stuart Mill’s popular quote – “Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character has abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and moral courage which it contained.”
It’s not about different shapes eccentricity can take or heights it can cross. The article has portrayed the emerging cult of tattoo freaks who have bared their true self in an artistic way. The tattoos may not look artistic for the viewer, but they display the true nature life holds for them; as with Aubrey’s ‘transistor tattoo’ and Blake’s ‘DNA double-helix tattoo’. The aim of the effort of the geeks or nerds is to get the motivational spark from things that influenced and changed their lives forever.
Amongst the real influencers, the ‘Apple‘ tattoo is the most famous of all times. Gamers are addicted to Nintendo or Zelda. Michelle, a brain institute lab worker, is having a special ‘neurons tattoo’. The article is a real tribute to the tattooed geeks.
