It's for a tattoo parlor. 99% of their business comes from the "any attention is good attention" idea.

For any other business I'd agree. Then again, seeing how the tattoo business is a stupid-ass business...

that business card is like throwing twelve pounds of garbage in a "no dumping zone" and spreading the persons name who threw it there all over the garbage. They will fine him, and they will wreck him.

Actually, it's should work completely fine. The way advertizing works is, that it creates associations in your subconsciousness, so say I'm at the market and want to buy some sort of detergent, if I've seen a memoriable advertizing for a certain brand of detergent, I'll be more likely to purchase that kind of detergent because my brain associates detergent with that brands name, and thus recognizes it and likes it. I won't be able to say how well it works for tattoos, but you get the idea.

Also, sorry for accidental learning.

I can think of times I was shopping, was about to purchase a brand, then remembered an annoying commercial and purposely selected a different brand

Yeah, advertizing like this is supposed to work really long term, because ultimately it doesn't matter whether the advertisement is good or bad as long as the brand name gets memorized (Which is also why I questioned how it would work for a tattoo shop). At some point, years into the future, you might have completely forgotten about the commercial, but will still have the brand name in the back of your head.

while that's true, it only works for long term, repeated exposure to a brand. So, that principle wouldn't necessarily apply to this situation.

Wouldn't it? if you found these on the ground often?

Finding them often would imply that you've been finding them for an extended period of time, so yes.

But I took the content to refer to a single instance, which would be the only reason it wouldn't work on most people. though, it would be a good way to attract people who were currently deciding whether they should get a tattoo, or planning on getting one.

Although, there's also some level of interplay with motivational relevance. If you weren't planning on getting a tattoo, already had one/ several from a place you trust, or had other thoughts/beliefs/experiences that reduced its relevance, then it would take a lot of repeated exposure to make any impact at all on long term memory.

This is because the LC-norepinephrine circuit, amygdala, and pulvinar would be attuned to other information (current research indicates these structures in motivationaly relevant attention capture); the aftereffect of which is hippocampal activity that pinpoints and stores anything relevant that's not an easily forgettable fake bill. Which would be especially true if they unfolded it with the spliced back side up instead of the business card side, because then it's just a false positive error with no real gain, so that information would degrade from memory rather quickly for most people.

...

I'm just going to go back to homework now.

Unless you're planning on sitting there for 10 hours for an incredibly detailed tattoo that you're talking about, you would have to go back for multiple sessions.

Not necessarily, mine took an hour and a half, and that was $145. $55 tip.

Well it depends on the size of the tattoo, some are bigger than others. I have a couple friends who have sleeves and they have, in total, like 8 or 9 hours in the chair each. He was talking about a "very detailed tattoo" I was just assuming he wanted something super elaborate that would take a while.

The side that says "TATTOO" is the other side. A normal bill isn't that small.
