I sat down with tattoo artist Christian Marek, based in Orange County, California this weekend for our interview and ended up getting a lot more than I bargained for.

STOP! Take a moment and look around. What do you see? Chances are you see a variety of products and items that have been purchased to make your life easier or that you value in some way.

When it comes to showing their unwavering support for a brand, few loyalists represent harder then VW ( Volkswagen ) owners. There are some awesome VW tattoos that really showcase the brand.
