Yahoo's Custom Tattoo
The wonderful Vince Hemingson of The Vanishing Tattoo sent me this new Yahoo ad that features photo-shopped custom work on a petite coquette who really loves social networking. And flowy scarves.
Vince sent the ad around to a bunch of us who dig this stuff (after it was passed along to him from a law professor for comment) and offered his thoughts:
"The tattoos of the young lady in question are an excellent example of a graphic designer's superb grasp of the use of Photo Shop. Hence, I am sure she is a model, chosen for her delightful, girl next door quality.
Seeing ads with tattoos has become so common that I don't even give it a second look any more. But I agree with Vince that the choice of the "girl next door" and not punk chick is a new twist.
Do y'all still find it surprising to see tattoos used to shill things like a 90s web portal?
