Billy The Human Billboard

Many athletes get corporate sponsorships, but boxer Billy Gibby - also known as Billy the Human Billboard - proudly wears his sponsors' logos not on his uniform, but on his body. Yep, he got 'em tattooed:

Since that time, Billy has collected 26 more tattoos from corporate sponsors, including Liberty Tax Service, Host Gator, Grown Up Geek, Cam4 (see video of this tattoo) and a slew of adult sites.

He hopes to go for a Guinness world record for the most corporate logos tattooed on his body. He's been featured in various print media ranging from Bizarre magazine to the San Diego Tribune. He's even got his own Facebook fan page, which, from all appearances, wasn't created by him. He keeps a blog that hasn't received many updates lately but lists his fees for placement of potential buyers' logos on his body ($3,000 for a 6-inch by 1-inch chest tattoo, $20,000 for a 6-by-1-inch forehead tattoo).

@video game dork:

Well I have to admit he's a damn fine human being.

Unfortunatly people like him who do these type of things for the good of others are the exception and not the rule.

Apparently, his first add-tattoo he got to raise enough money to go to California, so he could give one of his kidneys to a dying friend (source: his facebook page).

Hmm....

That's why they are taking (have already taken?) over the world - everyone has a "might as well get paid" attitude about everything and it cheapens every aspect of our lives.

I'd say I agree but let's be realistic. When you're hungry, broke or some evil corporation shows up at your house with a dump truck full of money it's very hard to no turn them down for the sake of "not selling out".
