    From the thread title I thought this was going to be a tatoo of the Tesla Motors logo. Kinda like that Zune guy.

    Yeah, The day the T logo makes it as a singular trademark on someone's back like the Nike Swoosh or Harley, it will be a red letter day.

    A head shave of the brand is a baby step.

    Not a problem. There is space below for the VIN number.

    I'm pretty sure those tattoos of Nikola are Nikola Tesla cultists, rather than fans of Tesla Motors. There's quite a cult of his fans out there. They believe he invented pretty much everything about electricity, including free (perpetual motion) electric generators and a way to transmit electric power over many miles without wires. Wireless (inductive) charging is real, but not very efficient over significant distance. Radio does send power wirelessly, but the amount of power that can be sent practically is tiny. I actually talked to a guy the other day who believes that Tesla invented a practical method of electric distribution without wires.
