The Girl With The Photoshop Tattoo

How great is this?? Designer Megan Orsi writes,

When I was in high school, I spent every waking moment in Photoshop creating websites and collages for my favorite show, The X-Files (don’t laugh!). Thankfully, all of the time I spent paid off and now I’m able to use my Photoshop skills on a daily basis doing a job I love. Photoshop’s been a big part of my past, and now, it will always be a part of my future. Thanks, Adobe ;-)

Hope everyone enjoys the Photoshop Toolbar Tattoo =D

Fantastic. (Your move, Goran Peuc. :-)) [Update: Tom Hogarty has posted more info about & from Megan on the Photoshop team blog.]

    And the other arm can now have a version with the new darker UI!

    The tattoo is awesome, but as an Adobe EDU team member this is what I really like, “I’m able to use my Photoshop skills on a daily basis doing a job I love”. Couldn’t be happier for her. Thanks Megan !

    [Like the illiterate one in your mirror, maybe. –J.]

    Two questions:

    1. You realize that within 6 months, Adobe will update and render your tattoo obsolete?

    2. Will you marry me?

    Amazing tattoo, so cool. Note: I don’t understand why some people need to be so rude when they post comments. If you don’t like something, sure, I can get that. But saying people are stupid because you don’t like their tattoo? That’s deliberately trying to be hurt someone’s feelings. Rude.

  • Terri Stone — 11:03 AM on September 20, 2012

    I salute Megan’s dedication!

  • Jack — 12:23 PM on September 20, 2012

    One of the coolest tattoos I’ve seen in a long time.

  • Oscar — 2:35 PM on September 20, 2012

    I’m going to get a photoshop tatoo that’s just an error message.

    Somehow I don’t think that will ever stop showing up.

  • Davon — 3:34 PM on September 20, 2012

    Love it!! Live it!

  • Christopher Swift — 4:24 PM on September 20, 2012

    Personally, I think it’s very weird and odd to brand oneself in the likeness of a corporate image. There’s something very disturbing about that.

  • king — 4:51 PM on September 20, 2012

    sooooooooooooo crazy why bother!!!!!!!!!!! when shes 65 she will regret this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bengt R Kiil — 5:16 PM on September 20, 2012

    hehe, awesome. :) Got my full attention ;)

  • Ken Nadeau — 5:55 PM on September 20, 2012

    I love this! & I find that people that tell other people what they will regret, often live pretty boring lives filled with nothing but safe decisions, no life lessons, and no worthy stories.

    Kudos to you Megan. I dig it.

  • Mike V — 6:42 PM on September 20, 2012

    Personally I think this would be cool if the story is fake and the image(s) of the tattoo are Shopped.

    A real tattoo? Pass.

    The toolbox from Version 1 or 2 would have been cooler, but maybe I’m just showing my age?

  • Suneel Gaokar — 11:58 PM on September 20, 2012

    Very very cool n neatly composed artwork, with Photoshop tool box, sort of gimmick? but precisely executed, cool,….

  • Matt Dillingham — 6:31 AM on September 23, 2012

    She has inspired me to get an entire body tattoo, of myself. Only with the liquify and retouching brushes applied!

    [You & me both! –J.]

  • Mark Kalan — 10:35 PM on September 23, 2012

    Obviously not a film shooter…

    • morgan — 11:32 AM on September 24, 2012

      she’s not even a photographer, she’s a designer. it says that above the photos, as well as a link to some of her work.

  • h0wReYa — 11:40 AM on September 24, 2012

    If have photoshop skills, you use shortcuts..

  • Hussain — 12:05 PM on September 24, 2012

    cool :D I would never have thought of a toolbar as a tattoo! the only problem is she can never hide this window ;)

  • Magnus — 11:18 PM on September 24, 2012

    So cool!!
    I totally love it!!
    Absolutely one of the coolest tattoos I’ve seen!
    and nicely done too.

    Go for it!!

  • Daniel — 4:23 AM on September 25, 2012

    This is my PS toolbar tattoo :o) hahahaha

    (actually it’s my bookmark ^_^)

  • Tim — 2:26 PM on September 25, 2012

    Great tattoo. Some color in the leaves and ornaments around the toolbox would be nice too.

  • Sâmia — 4:25 PM on September 26, 2012

    Awesome!! Original and beautiful. And it clearly means something to her. Don’t see why she would regret it. It is something meaningful for her in a special time of her life.

  • Sissi — 5:09 PM on September 26, 2012

    It’s absolutely beautiful and so is she!

    I seriously doubt she’ll regret it. I’ve seen regrettable tattoos. This isn’t one.

  • John G. — 6:34 PM on September 26, 2012

    New desktop wallpaper! Great idea!

  • Tim Lucas — 8:47 PM on September 29, 2012

    Great idea. I do janitorial work and I will have a sink and toilet tattoo immediately.

    [Hah! –J.]
