Sideways: Michael Novogratz could take a tattoo tip from Johnny Depp

It is hard to stay fashionable when you are a Goldman Sachs veteran. Current chief executive David Solomon is sometimes cruelly mocked for his performances as DJ D-Sol in the Hamptons, east of New York, where his peers and clients gather in the summer.

Novogratz is another Hamptons perennial, and hired Miley Cyrus to perform at a party there last summer.

Novogratz took the battle for attention even further when he decided to get down with at least some of the crypto kids by placing a tattoo of Luna and a related symbol of a wolf howling at the moon on one of his biceps.
