Business is a very serious thing, indeed. But if you are a young and daring man, then why wouldn’t use your sense of humor to have fun and earn some extra cash by the same token?
A 29-year-old resident of St. Petersburg, Russia, Igor Lisovenko decided to earn living by selling weird advertising. Young man made himself a tattoo on his back, which has 950 squares – advertising spaces. Each is a little more than 1 square cm. For a mere sum of10 EUR ($14) per month (600 EUR or $820 for five years) Igor will put a logo or any other image in a square on his back. Actually this advertising will serve much longer then five years as young entrepreneurs doesn’t plan to remove the tattoo.
Igor has no plans to walk around bare-chested as the main “face” of the project should be a site that will publish photos of all advertisings. In addition, he is ready to take part in marketing activities of its advertisers. According to Igor, now he already has one customer who paid for five squares. If this weird business proves to be successful, Lisovenko plans to expand the area of advertising spaces at the expense of his arms and shoulders.
This sure is a bizarre business idea, but I won’t be surprise if Igor becomes famous and well-paid – people just love odd stuff and his advertising offer will surely find its way through word of mouth.
