Well, maybe I should say “Can you see me now?”
Consumers showing love and support for brands in odd ways is nothing new, but I have to say that I think I stumbled upon what might be the most committed fan of any brand to date.
Why? Well, in my opinion, if you get a brand’s logo tattooed on you, that’s one level of commitment. However, if you get it tattooed in a highly visible place and make it ridiculously large, that’s taking it to the next level. That is in fact just what a man named Daniel Carrion recently did.
Now, it’s important to point out that Daniel is apparently a tattoo artist and being a fan of ink myself, I can say that I’ve had discussions with tattoo artists about bad tattoos they have gotten in the past and have seen some first hand. Some artists seem to just do funny stuff to fill up space on empty skin, but this trumps every story I’ve ever heard with regards to that because Daniel had the logo tattooed smack dab on his left hand!
Why? Get ready….. He’s “just a really, really big fan of Verizon Wireless.”
That’s not all this uber-fan is getting ready to do…. The next phase of showing his love for Verizon is getting his forehead tattooed so “the logo will be in front of all my friends and anyone I run into on a daily basis.”
If you want proof that this is real, definitely check out the video below. You can read the full story here.
So all this raises a question. What’s next when it comes to showing love for your favorite brands? Well, the bar has been set, so start figuring out a new way to trump Mr. Carrion I guess.
