Geek gets Blackberry Storm tattoo

For the love of...

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The man won a free Storm for his efforts

A man dubbed 'T.J', from Ohio, opted to have a life-size copy of the Storm tattooed on his forearm in order to win a free Storm in a contest entitled “What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm?”

The guy also chose to have the words “iPhone sucks” inked in below the Storm. We just wonder what he’ll think of the tattoo once Storm’s been consigned to the great phone bin in the sky and replaced with a faster, sexier and more feature-laden model.

Don’t forget to check out Register Hardware’s first look at the BlackBerry Storm.
