Handy Workshop Tattoo

Thanks to this handy tattoo, Greg Flanagan can measure anything up to sixteen inches long. It's a precisely calibrated ruler eight inches long, set eight inches away from the tip of his pinkie finger.

The proverbial question naysayers always ask "how will that tattoo look when you get older." in this case the saggy loss skin could be an advantage. The genius of this tattoo is that it solves two problems of getting older 1) needing glasses to read the small print on the measuring tape is solved because the print gets bigger as he ages 2) loss of dexterity and inability to handle small objects due to arthritis is solved because he is not losing dexterity, the objects are getting smaller.

I have a similar tattoo on a part of the body that has large changes in both girth and length. As a measuring device, it fluctuates too much. On the upside, it is a conversation starter and I am getting fluctuated on a continuous basis.
