Looks like Drearmeda who is one of the guys behind Sucuri.net has placed some WordPress ink on his arm. He’s certainly not the first to get a WordPress logo as a tattoo and probably won’t be the last. While it’s cool to see this kind of enthusiasm for the software, some people might look at this as going over the top. I don’t think something like this symbolizes the community as turning into a cult around WordPress. It’s just a persons unique way of showing their enthusiasm for the software, which doesn’t bother me a bit. Does it bother or worry you to see a software logo tattooed on someone’s body?

Hugo Baeta who has become one of the newest members of the Automattic team has showcased his love for WordPress by getting two tattoos on his body. The first tattoo which shows the WordPress W with what seems like vines around the circle. All in all, it looks pretty good, especially the straight lines in the W.
The second tattoo is the motto of WordPress spread across the forearm. Once again, the detail is pretty good as it looks like a stencil was used. Congrats to Hugo on his new job, I just hope his feelings for WordPress are for life and not just a spur of the moment thing. Also, I wonder if the WordPress Foundation gave him permission to put the trademark onto his body? I ask that question jokingly.

Ed Morita, a Hawaiian resident can lay claim to taking WordPress Fandom to a new level as he now has a permanent WordPress logo as a tattoo on his forearm. Lorelle has been mentioning this event for quite awhile now on Twitter and it’s pretty cool to see Ed actually go through with it. However, I will play the controversy card as I received a message from Andrew on Twitter asking me if the tattoo was using the correct WordPress logo. So lets take a look and see.
After staring at the correct/incorrect logos while staring at the tattoo, I see one or two similarities to the bad logo such as the right space inside of the logo being straight while the correct logo has a curve. But, I also see similarities between the good logo and the tattoo such as the space on the left hand side of the W. Considering Ed had the expertise of Lorelle on hand, I’m pretty sure he used the correct logo regardless.
Some may think that I’m either bored to be analyzing such a thing but hey, I was asked a question and thought I’d put together my findings. I do think what Ed has done is cool and I look forward to seeing where tattoos of WordPress end up on other people.
On second thought, maybe not.
What do you think, did he use the good logo or the bad?
