Tom’s Celebration Tramp Stamp

While at Cisco Live in Las Vegas ( what happens in Vegas, stay’s in Vegas right ? ) Tom got a CCIE tattoo to celebrate passing his CCIE RS Lab exam. Tom, of course, is a regular host on the Packet Pushers show.

complete with “muffin top” or CCIE Pounds all round.


Congratulations on passing CCIE#29213.

Muffin-top” is a generally pejorative slang term used to describe the phenomenon of overhanging flesh (fat) when it spills over the waistline of pants or skirts in a manner that resembles the top of a muffin spilling over its paper casing.
