RIM superfan keeps faith alive with BlackBerry 10 tattoo

Many think the mobile OS is already irrelevant. Just imagine how that ink will fade by the time it's officially obsolete years down the road.

What's likely to trigger more regret 10 years down the road -- a tattooed profile of that special someone who broke your heart and took your favorite records, or a permanent etching of an obsolete operating system that some critics thought was already bordering on irrelevance when it was brand new?

Most of us would probably just opt to skip both options, but not Brian Heffren of Middleton, N.Y. He's chosen to go all in on BlackBerry 10 , which launches tomorrow, by getting the new mobile OS logo tattooed on his shoulder forever. Ladies, take note. This is a guy who understands what commitment is all about.

The whole stunt is part of a contest giveaway from BlackBerry fan-site CrackBerry.com.

While I'm certainly impressed by Heffren's dedication, the geeky tattoos of Crave readers still own my heart, particularly these epic Autobot and Decepticon tats on the wrists of Paul Curwin.

Between Curwin and Heffren, I'm almost inspired to get the Palm OS logo inked on to my chest. Almost.

Here's the video of Heffren getting the work done:
