According to 2016, a good butt makes a quick buck.
Bailey Price, realising this, has figured out a way to pay off her student debt: By auctioning off her behind to anyone with a spare few thousand pounds knocking around.
The entrepreneurial 20-year-old self-titled ‘wild child’ is selling her backside a a canvas to be tattooed with a choice image courtesy of the highest bidder.
Bailey, who works in a Wellington surf shop, has placed her butt on the website TradeMe, writing:
I’m a pretty wild girl so most people who know me wouldn’t be surprised that I’m offering the winner of this auction to have anything tattooed on my butt.
Obviously, tattoos are forever so who could say no to a life time of advertisement. I am also well known for mooning my butt in public, lol.
You may be waiting to bid on this auction for a vary of ideas: marriage proposal, business promotion, an artist wanting to share design or just because yolo.
According to Stuff, Bailey also notes a few provisos and conditions, as follows: The tattoo can only cover a 9cm x 9cm square space, and it must be confined to one cheek of the bidder’s choice.
She adds, ‘I will be getting the tattoo done at the place of my choice, but if the winner is in the wellington region they are welcome to come and watch. I will send a photo in frame of the final product for winner.’
On a philanthropic side note, she’s also asserted that 10 per cent of the winnings will go towards a charity of the highest bidder’s choice.
At the time of writing, the bids had reached the tidy sum of NZ $3,400 but are yet to hit the reserve price.
One determined customer who boats 100 per cent positive feedback, spinner2012, has bid numerous times while one hopeful asked, ‘I have a company called “The Ultimate Man Cave”… Would you be adverse to putting my company name on there?’
Fair play to Bailey. Why sit on all of that promotional space when you can make a little nest egg and grow your assets?
