Developer tattoos πŸ‘€

I was writing a post about my development journey yesterday and it made me wonder, does anyone else have any developer tattoos? πŸ€”

Mine is a simple "Hello World" that I got after I was promoted to Junior, it was the first thing I ever learnt and it was the start of this incredible journey ⭐️

I’d love to hear your stories? πŸ™‚

There's a phrase to have a "chip on your shoulder" β€” I've thought about getting a little computer chip on my shoulder as a play on this idea. Haven't done it yet though. πŸ˜…

To have a chip on one's shoulder refers to the act of holding a grudge or grievance that readily provokes disputation.

Free stickers for life if anybody gets the DEV logo as a tattoo.

I think a chip on your shoulder would be a great idea! πŸ˜„
I did nearly get cmd + c, cmd + v as in copy and paste developer πŸ˜‚

P.s I could do with some free stickers for my laptop πŸ€”πŸ‘€ lol

Does temporary tattoo count(for the logo)?

I'm not into tattoos actually but I saw people in the linux subreddit to do this

I'm not into tattoos (and thus I have none) but this cute little "hello world" made me giggle. Should I ever take one, this would make a good candidate

I think that technology moves too fast, I can't justify it because it will make you feel old... Unless it's bash, I guess that's not going anywhere (3 years later, nobody uses bash due to critical security flaw)
