Photoshop fanatic has Adobe toolbar tattooed on her arm

Think you're a big fan of Adobe Photoshop? You've got nothing on designer Meghan Orsi whose Internet handle has become "The Girl with the Photoshop Tattoo" thanks to the unique toolbar illustration on her arm.

Orsi is a web designer from Pittsburgh, PA who has always loved tattoos and Photoshop and decided to bring those two passions together. She designed the Photoshop toolbar tattoo herself, according to the Blog.

"I really love the style of henna and mehndi tattoos. So I wanted to combine that, with the toolbar and a bit of filigree (which I also love) together into an awesome tattoo," she says. "I wanted it to be pretty, but also meaningful. So, I traced my arm to get the size just right, and drew it out. I got the rough draft done in one night. The next day, I redrew it as a final draft! Two days is an absolute RECORD for me. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so the fact that I didn’t lament over every detail must have meant I did something right! The tattoo artist had to simplify some of the lines, just a bit, but the design is mine, yes."

And for those Photoshop experts keeping score at home, the tattooed toolbar is actually from Photoshop CS3 because that's Orsi's favorite version.
