I'm one of those guys whose really into the idea of "fuck societal norms", and no, this does not mean that I'm one of those retards that would consider breathing too mainstream if it weren't for the fact that it was essential for continued life.
This guy is so non-conformist that he dresses just like a million other people
I fucking hate hipsters
In truth, there's a lot of things I do that may not exactly be seen as part of the mainstream such as growing facial hair, listening to thrash metal (FUCKING SLAYER), and eating food that nobody else seems to like (see previous post). The thing is, however, I don't do these things so I feel like a unique little snowflake, I do them because I really fucking love those things, and I'm soon going to be adding "getting tattoos" to that list.

Now, I know that a lot of people already have tattoos and that it's not really all that unique, and I'm cool with that. You want to know why?

I just don't give a fuck

I've wanted to get a tattoo since I was 14 and I've had to constantly listen to argument after argument about why I shouldn't get one, and I didn't listen to a single one of them and I'm going to be getting my first tattoos this summer. I'm pretty fucking excited about all of this because I have a friend doing the design, which is going to be woodcuts of two ravens (one standing still and the other taking off) and they're going to be placed on the back of my shoulders (I've been told that it's going to hurt like a sonavabitch because of where they're going to be). Best part of all is that these are definitely not going to be my only ones since I have ideas for at least four more that I'm going to get eventually.

Now, I think that anyone who wants to get a tattoo should just do it, but I feel that you should really put some thought into it. If there's one thing I hate, it's people who just get random Sailor Jerry shit without putting any meaning behind it and just getting it because they thought it would be cute.
Real fucking original
This isn't to say that all Sailor Jerry style tattoos are terrible, I just think that if you're going to put something permanent on your body, you should make sure there's some meaning behind it.

Also, anybody out there who is on the fence about whether or not to get a tattoo (or people who already know they want one or people who already have them): you should read Tattoo Machine: My Life in Ink by Jeff Johnson, it's a real good read about the guy's life and he gives his advice on getting tattoos (which really encouraged me to get mine)
Stop what you're doing and read this fucking book right now, you son of a bitch
Rad Thad out, you inked-up people

P.S. I'm over 1,000 views! FUCK YEAH!


  1. Cool Story Bro! Just don't wind up like that guy who tried to turn himself into a cat, pic related.

  2. i would get a tattoo, but there's nothing i can think of that would have a meaning i want with me forever. unless maybe a kitty.

  3. omg ur gonna regret it!!! jk do what u want, its only a tattoo after all. i think they can be pretty cool actually.

  4. I've seen too many tatts with no meaning. I'd think about a tattoo long and hard before actually getting it done. Your idea sound's cool though

  5. I'm thinking about getting a dick tattooed on my middle finger. I'm so awesome.

  6. Tattoos can be cool, but so many of them are just fail...


  7. i think you just convinced me to get mine
