Oh the humanity! What am I supposed to do with my burned eyes now?! I'm going to link to you in my post today, rotten man!

SkylersDad said...

Thanks for posting these Bubs, you remind me that I haven't posted any of the bad tat series in quite awhile. I promise I won't steal any of these!

I bet Debbie Schlussel has a Chimpy stamp.

I just threw up. Damn you, brain! Siebenliebenachtungschweinhundstadt!

Splotchy said...

Nifty!

Mnmom said...

Another fabelhaft German word! Danke Schon!

I just don't get the whole tattoo thing. I really don't. Someone please explain the rationale, other than the fact that "everyone else was doing it so it seemed like a good idea".

I'm with MNMom -- I don't get it. If I ever got a tattoo, I'd get my SSN tattooed on my trunk, so I could be identifiable if I'm ever killed and hacked up by a serial killer, or if I'm beheaded in a car crash or something.

Bubs said...

Full disclosure: I have two tattoos, one on each upper arm. I've been thinking about getting a third for several years, and also thinking about having one of the existing tattoos made larger.

Dguzman, don't worry about that--we used dental records and DNA.

MnMom, for me I wanted to permanently alter my body and put some personal artwork on myself that would follow me around until I died.

Splotchy! Long time no see. Glad you like it.

Randal, thanks for sharing the pain.

Skylersdad, steal away! Feel free.

Tanya, any time, toots! Think nothing of it.

Reminds me of that funny snl skit here.

Hilarsquared and one hell of a shamevent. I love it. White trashalicious.

My ma calls them tramp stamps, it's so funny to hear those words come from her mouth. "Look at that tramp stamp." Ahhh....

Gifted Typist said...

Funny, I've seen this post before. Hmmmm. I wonder where?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

The banana was pretty weird! You really have to love bad tattoos, they make me feel all superior and stuff.

Erik Donald France said...

I'm hypnotically drawn to such tramp stamps, it must be the hard wiring.

Arschgeweih, es is Wunderbar!

lulu said...

I love my tattoo, which is in the tramp stamp spot, but which lacks the Symmetry of most tramp stamps.

I want to get another one soon, possibly the eyes on the Stupas in Nepal.

kim said...

Love it....but how did you get a picture of my butt.

Thanks for dinner...I went online and bought the Zombie game for the kids. I'm still dreaming of that steak.

bubbles said...

My sister has a friend that got a tattoo of a unicorn on her boob when she was young... now she has a giraffe with a horn instead.

Just say'in

Love that snl memory, GKL!!

I sure enjoyed catching up today, Bubs! Thanks for the great posts!

Lisa said...

I was fascinated with the butterfly thong, myself. Wonder what that guy would look look like on one of those....

Leon Basin said...

Cool photos!!

Spartacus said...

Oh those taboo tats. I'll bet those gals get mad, too, when you sneak a peak. Is there a German phrase for "stop staring at my ass?"

nbratscott said...

That's like putting a bumper sticker on a Rolls Royce!!!!

Freida Bee said...

Alright. I liked the big bats. I wouldn't get them, but I liked them.

I have a tattoo on my upper right arm that is old and only black and blue and kinda looks like a prison tattoo, so I want to colorize it and make it more over the top.

Mr. Bee has the funniest tattoo I've seen. It's an itty bitty Winny the Pooh on his inner arm near his elbow. The banana one made me think of it. I like the banana one.
