If your job or hobbies require you to do a lot of measuring, you might want to take a tip from this guy who had a ruler tattooed on his forearm.

"My right forearm has a 8" ruler on it that I use for everything from measuring PVC diameter to wire lengths," Flickr user, mikeysklar said. "My background is in embedded hardware design, but I choose to spend my time doing experimental building, transportation, and energy these days. The tattoo gets used daily."
