Thomas Alva Edison flaunted a tattoo on his arm. He had five dots tattooed on his arm; no one really knows the meaning or reason behind it. Later in life he went ahead and created the basic tattoo machine!
The aforementioned Thomas Edison facts explain that he was a great man, who believed in trying very hard. He never succumbed to his failures and kept on trying new things, which is very inspirational.
