In Russia, Dominos pizza offered to give people who tattooed themselves with their logo free pizza for 100 years. (Seem pretty reasonable for something permanent)
Unfortunately, they had to shut down this promotion because is was TOO POPULAR!!!! Seriously! Russians love their pizza so much, there was an onslaught of people getting Domino’s tattoos for their free pizza.
The idea was to get the tattoo and show it off online which would give a time/date stamp. After a week of the promotion, the news media had to make an urgent call on their to tell people to stop getting their tattoos of the brand name, because the promotion was over early. If you got a tattoo after the date they ended the promotion, you would not get free pizza for 100 years.
Keep in mind, this promotion didn’t guarantee that everyone who got a tattoo of the Dominos logo would get free pizza. It was only for a select 350 people who got the ink.
I’m the last person to talk someone out of getting inked, but to get a tat of a business that may (or may not) choose you to get pizza isn’t what I call a smart move.’
Now before you talk trash about Russian stupidity, lets not forget people have tattooed the Apple logo, company bar codes and radio station logos on themselves. (I even have a band tattooed on my arm, as you can see below). Just remember, before you ever get ink…it is forever…and some of it looks like garbage after a while.
