No idea? You’ll never guess it. It was Thomas Edison. Yes. The Thomas Edison.

Got that info from here:

According to a 1911 policy with the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York, Edison had five dots tattooed on his left forearm. No one knew what the dots meant.

Though it would’ve been a neat thing, there was simply no evidence that Edison used his invention to give himself a tattoo.

So what is monkeysphere? You’ll have to read to understand. =)
