What's your price for a company tattoo logo?

Recommended Posts

The time has come where large companies are offering discounts to people who get their logos tattooed on them. I have heard of this before and know a few restaurants who offer deals if you have their logo tattooed but larger companies are catching on. This is a whole new level of "branding". We've seen the kids who get payed to be the billboard for companies plus some others but now Ecko clothing offers the below quoted section.

I guess everyone or almost everyone has a price, so what's yours? Would you ever consider a companies logo tattooed on you? How much? Would it be an upfront payment or lifetime discount or??????? Do you already have one, pls tell.......

Ecko Offers 20 Percent Off For Life For Anyone Who Gets Tattoo Of Its Logo

First Posted: 04/4/11 08:26 AM ET Updated: 04/ 4/11 09:18 AM ET

We keep waiting for this to be a dubbed an April Fool's Day joke, but we're four days in with no signs of letting up.

Ecko Unlimited, purveyors of t-shirts, denim, track jackets, polos, sneakers and more; best-known for its ad campaigns featuring Lindsay Lohan and Vanessa Hudgens, is offering a 20 percent discount off its wares for life to anyone who gets a tattoo of the label's rhino or shears logo.

Hold that tat machine...only 20 percent?

Lesson to be learned here: even if you go so far as to literally brand yourself, you'll spend the rest of your days buying $29.50 hoodies for $23.60 to cover up that bad decision on your arm.

But do let us know if you go through with it. Huffington Post

I can be guilty of getting a company logo tattooed on me. Although it wasn't because I would receive money for advertisement or a discount with future purchases. It may seem stupid but this logo had some importance to me and I thought about it for 2 years before I got it, was also my first tattoo. So with that in mind, getting a logo just cause you will get a discount seems kinda stupid, but eh if you want the logo on you go a head. You could also always get a cover up once you drift outa that brand. Mine I have had for 4 years now, not planning on getting it covered up. Actually I'm thinking of a way to incorporate it into a larger tattoo chest/squid sleeve.

But to answer seriously, I dont think I could bring myself to get a companies logo in the small amount of space I actually have left unless it was a ridiculous amount of money. Defiantly nothing super visible. On the other hand, I do enjoy money, and I guess it really wouldnt matter with how much coverage I actually do have.

logo tattoos are normally a bad idea in general. companies, bands, whatev. tastes and opinions change over time.

I got the logo for Hot Doug's in Chicago tattooed on me so me and my guests can eat free for life. The design is funny enough to blend in with the rest of my tattoos so it was really a no brainer. I have a couple of designs from Craft beer companies that I enjoy tattooed on me but again I liked the designs and Had them redrawn and turned into a tattoo.

I don't think I could get a logo if I didn't like the design or couldn't turn it in to a decent tattoo.

    • Hello everyone! First of all, I hope I posted in the right topic, everything else was blocked and I am kinda desperate to seek the advices cause' I've seen some interesting topics around here and this forum might bring some light in my case as well, maybe will ease my worries too, who knows. Before I will elaborate my problem, I wanna tell you guys I already have 4 masterpieces all healed up properly by the same artist, so we made the fifth on the chest, later that day I noticed a red line crossing the clavicle just above the tattoo itself. Is very important to mention that he has told me to keep the area covered with foil for about an hour, due to other things I managed to take it down after 4-5 hours, bare in mind that the adhesive tape was attached to the skin all this time. So after a few days the redness has spread (not very prominent yet) and was now surrounding the tattoo just a little outside of where the skin was inked.  I made an initial contact with my artist and he told me that the redness appeared because I kept the adhesive tape for too long which might cause an allergy and it should be back to normal in a couple of days. That made sense to me at the time. The thing is, it hasn't gone back to normal, so after 2 weeks I visited a dermatologist and got diagnosed with contact dermatitis, I got some antibiotics and some ointment based on a steroid, for a while it did make the redness from the clavicle go away, but then redness went a little bit further to shoulder, first days the treatment seemed to be helping but then was suddenly not having any effects. I was supposed to go back to check with them after the treatment, but because I didn't like the way I was treated as a patient to begin with in the first place also the way they spoke to me was rude, having tattoos it was like I have some sort of HIV for them, then instead of looking for solutions I was  being questioned the meaning of every tattoo, yeah they come across very judgmental as F***, pardon my language. So fast forward this Tuesday, I visited a second dermatologist and this time the diagnosis was Dermatitis atopic, they gave me some antibiotics for allergy and some ointment named Elidel based on pimecrolimus. Now I know its only has been 2 days since I took the new treatment, but there has been no change so far and I am worried as hell, as for symptoms, it doesn't itch nor has swollen so far or anything else other than redness and dry skin. I guess Its worth mentioned that I have asthma and I am allergic to some stuffs which I avoid and I used to have all sorts of allergies in the past but with all went away in within daysor a week. Never mind that, I had 4 successful tattoos before, therefore I don't know what is the anomaly here. I did take very good care of it, following the protocol, cleaning with antibacterial soap and still using Bepanthen ointment on it, same thing I did to the previous tattoos. The tattoo was made on 18 october, there has been no improvements in almost a month on my skin and it drives me mad to the point of thinking worst case scenario; like removing it with laser as some cases suggested on the internet, just thinking about this stuff breaks my heart really, so if anyone experienced anything similar I would like to hear your thoughts on the matter or what treatment worked for you. I will attach a photo of the tattoo and its redness around it, I would like to apologize in advance for writing such a long post. PS. The redness is more prominent in real time than in the photo.
    • As SStu said, you can't change it much other than to get some real dark to cover it. It's going to change color more and more anyways so I don't think you should do it especially at such an early point of getting tattoo. I'd wait til it settles more and is fully healed before you become to dislike it. but it doesn't look bad in my eyes! just my 2 cents
    • I think it looks fine like that, if it's a little different than all the other chrysanthemums on other people, isn't that better ?
