Have you ever wanted to become a real-life walking and talking billboard for your favorite corporation? If the thought has never crossed your mind, you may be in the minority of tattoo enthusiasts. Tons of people around the world get tattoo designs of their favorite corporate logos, mascots, brand imagery and vintage advertising inked on their bodies to express their love of certain products.

And then again with their own money, they get the choice to ink themselves with their favorite brands. These people are exercising their right to the free market, although some may be taking themselves out of it due to no employers wanting to hire them with these weird tattoos. Check out these 12 corporate tattoo designs for a glimpse into this growing trend.
