You know how some people get their girlfriend's name tattooed on their chest or arm, then a week later they break up? This guy here has just gotten the impulsive video game equivalent:
Last week I finally snagged a Nintendo 3DS and after playing the augmented reality games, the first thing I thought was “Oh shit, that AR card would make a killer tattoo.” And so this weekend, I got the 3DS AR tattoo and it’s fucking awesome.
Far be it for me to belittle anyone's tattoos, I mean, I've got a strip of bacon on my leg and mustaches inked on the sides of my fingers (BTW, fingerstaches = ouch!). But I know I'll be eating bacon all my life until they pry the pork from my cold, dead hands and the mustaches will always be ice-breakers. Can this man really say the same thing about his AR tattoo?
In another five years or so, Nintendo will come out with a new handheld device and everyone will forget about the silly little cards that used to come with the 3DS because they'll be too busy blowing each other's heads up with the latest in mind-blowing technology. Hopefully, it will still mean something to him though, and as long as that's the case, none of that other stuff matters, but I can't shake the feeling that this guy's going to regret this decision sooner or later.
