Max cash tattoo

Wiki says “The maximum number of coins in a stack is 2,147,483,647, because RuneScape uses 32-bit signed integers to store values, which are unable to represent a higher number. A stack of this many coins is informally known as max cash“. This max cash tattoo not only contains the 2147M text, but also has a coin stack beautifully designed.
