Sir Richard Branson is the billionaire CEO of the Virgin Group. His business ventures include the Virgin Megastores, Virgin Airways, Virgin Mobile, and more recent Virgin Galactic. He is also world famous for his eccentric and daredevil personality. Richard is also a well known philanthropist and has appeared in several TV shows and movies, mainly appearing as himself.
He also has his own popular blog called Richard’s Blog in which he posts photos and details his daily travels. In a recent post Sir Richard posted photos of fans with Virgin related tattoos. He let us see the 3 that he found and then asked his followers if they had tattoos and if there were any that they regret:
“Strangely, all in one day while visiting America I bumped into three different people who had tattoos relating to various Virgin companies on their bodies. I have to admit I found it very flattering.
The first girl I met, Sophia Amoruso, had tattooed our original Virgin Records logo on her arm when she was 16. It’s brought her spectacular entrepreneurial good luck in that she’s gone on to create ‘Nasty Gal‘, a really hip website selling women’s clothing that is one of the fastest growing companies in America.
One of our engineers at our spaceship company, James Swanson, had tattooed the picture of my mum Eve when she was a teenager, which proudly flies on our Mothership named after her.
The third person we met was Jenissa Garcia, who has the evolution of flight tattooed on her back culminating in Virgin Galactic. She’s standing with George Whitesides who runs Virgin Galactic and is equally impressed – I mean with the tattoo!
Not bad for one day’s trip around America. Who else has got interesting tattoos out there? Who has any they regret?”
