James Nelson auctioned off the back of his head for $7,000. Now, he's got the tattoo to prove it. Texas Internet company CIhost.com won the eBay auction, in which Nelson promised to use his head as advertisement space for the highest bidder.

Should this guy have asked for a lot more than $7000?

$7000 for 5 years' work seems like chump change - there are kids in third world countries that probably make more than that. He should have held out for much more :P

Definetly should have gotten more

hmm i bet he's going to regret that!

i'd charge more than that to have a tattoo on my butt let alone on the back of my head..

I would charge WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more!!

Thats a good idea! I would do that but not on my head, probably on my arm or something.

Zombie's right, it would be better to have it on your arm.

The guy should have asked for a couple million. He'll need lots of material wealth to compensate for his incredible stupidity.

In my humble opinion.

I'd want at least $30,000 to do that.

If that's all he wanted then I don't see why he should have asked for more.
