Man Says One-Time Fee Is Lifelong Ad
BOSTON -- A New Hampshire man is making ends meet in tough economic times by selling his skin.
Victor Thompson, 39, of Laconia, N.H., is selling his skin as billboard space for $200 per square inch.
Thompson said the tattoos are a smart move for companies because with a one-time fee, the tattoo is a lifetime advertisement.
Thompson, an unemployed restaurant worker, launched www.tattmetto.com with his agent and business partner, Josh Youssef, a New Hampshire computer store owner, the Boston Herald reported.
Thompson, who is in the process of tattooing his skull to look like a New England Patriots helmet, said "tattoos are my life."
Thompson's wife, Barbara, said she supports her husband despite her initial reservations.
