7 Geeky Tattoo Ideas For Developers And IT Professionals

Geeky Tattoo Ideas

Marriages, fame, and fortune – everything comes and goes – except a tattoo. Tattoos are permanently inked onto your body. So when someone gets a geeky tattoo, as opposed to a pretty yellow rose (like me), it just makes it all the more special. Here are some geeky tattoo ideas to help inspire you and your tattoo artist.

1. Apple Think Different: Slogan

Apple used the “Think Different” marketing slogan from 1997-2002.

2. Apple Think Different: Tramp Stamp

NERD NOTE: The phrase “tramp stamp” is slang for the placement of a tattoo on the lower back. Tramp Stamps are usually just above the waistline.

3. C++ Code

These two lines of code say “Hello World” in the C++ programming language.

4. HTML Full Body Code

6. Rubix Cube, Pac-Man & Math

Rubik’s Cube, Space Invaders and math (chest)

There’s a lot going on in this tattoo. At the center is the popular 1980s Rubik’s Cube puzzle. On the bottom is a ghost from the video game Pac-Man. And a math equation makes up the rest of the tattoo. Very impressive.

7. T-Mobile Sidekick Tattoo

In the early 2000s, Paris Hilton helped make the T-Mobile Sidekick one of the most popular smartphones on the market. It remained mostly unchallenged until the debut of the iPhone.

Geeky Tattoo Ideas

These tattoos are all masterpieces. They pay tribute to phones, technology companies, and even computer coding languages. But do these geeky tattoo ideas still hold up over time? Will they have the same impact and recognition in 10-30 years from now?
