Be careful what we wish for: In 2006, HD Moore wrote a blog post about a redesign of the Metasploit Project, announcing that the new graphics “will be featured on tee shirts, posters, and tattoos over the coming year.” Well, you guys took a little longer than we thought but we now have our first Metasploit tattoo!
Initially, we thought Roy Morris (aka @soundwave1234) was joking when he tweeted to @hdmoore on October 13 that he wanted to get a Metasploit tattoo. Just in case, we contacted him to find out.
Roy's the man – he got the tattoo a week ago at the Ink for a Cause competition in California. See the full story in Roy's gallery. Roy's currently looking for IT security gigs in North LA / Ventura County, so let him know if you're currently hiring in this area.
Getting a tattoo shows some serious dedication, so we'd like to say thanks. We're sending Roy a free license of Metasploit Pro for the duration of his tattoo. We thought a license valid for one hundred years should cover it.
For the less dedicated, we're opening up a competition: Tweet your Metasploit tattoo with the hash tag #MetasploitProInk by November 15th. You don't have to get a permanent tattoo - you can submit non-permanent and Sharpie tattoos as well as photoshopped images. First 35 participants will get a one-month license for Metasploit Pro 3.5. You'll all get to vote for the best Metasploit tattoo artist, who will receive a BlackHat briefings pass!
