It's a sign of true love when you never want to be without each other. Dave Hurban clearly feels the love for his iPod Nano — taking the unusual step of drilling holes in his arm to house magnets that will keep his Nano ever ready.
Despite the drilling and the blood and the forceps, it might calm you to know that Hurban isn't exactly the squeamish type. He's a body-piercing artist — which should give the viewer of the following video some comfort despite the fact he preforms the procedure on himself.
Clearly, he's also pretty experienced with some degree of pain, already possessing several piercings and a body full of tattoos.
For someone who likes piercings and body art, I can understand Hurban's need to push the envelope in looking for a new and interesting project. It is definitely unique and I suspect it will be hard to top.
I do wonder his thoughts on the practicality of the project. Not because he'll get stopped at TSA screening every time he flies, though I'm sure that happens already. The issue I see is that technology advances so quickly he might find something he likes better to add to his wrist — after all there are those vibrating tattoos linked to your phone in the future.
Practicality be damned though. I'm pretty sure that having his Nano at the ready is not the only reason why this guy did it. I think he did it to prove that he could.
When he finds something better he likes he'll just rip out those magnets and start over with the next best thing. LED lights perhaps?
