ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Found on Fuck Yeah, Tattoos, an adorable behind-the-ear droid
(via The Mary Sue)
Tattoos are so passe. Everyone and their mother has tattoos. My kid wants one, and she’s seven. My grandmother wants one and she’s 94. I saw a nun with a tattoo last week at church. Enough with the tattoos already. It was better when just sailors, bikers, and Polynesians had them.
That would make a great quote for a tattoo
Sure, everyone has a tattoo, but clearly this is not the tattoo you’re looking for.
Yeah, and hairstyles. Those really drown me in ennui.
It seems like almost everyone has a hairstyle now. I’m sooo over it.
I mutter that every morning into my mirror.
I know right? freakin’ Otzi the Iceman had tatoos 5,300 years ago http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%96tzi_the_Iceman#Tattoos. I mean, it was cool for the first 5,250 years, but, it’s like, GET OVER IT PEOPLE!
I was a sailor for a while, and still want a tattoo to mark that, but when I think about having to deal with snarky looks from people like you who would never suspect that I ever climbed a rig in my life…
Ugh.Seriously. Times change, niches go global. People who want tattoos get tattoos, and even if they’re fugly Twilight themed horrors, it’s their right.
Now excuse me while I go pick out a sparrow.
Hey, lets just be happy its not some lame “inspirational” quote with a misspelling.
I don’t want one. :)
Scrumptious. Wonder why it shows R2’s back?
It’s actually not even his back. Really it is a terrible repro of an actual R2 unit. I can accept that his head turns around, but the legs are not even mounted in the right spot compared to the rest of his body.
Airbrush shadow technique FTW!
That’s a weird thing to have Fuck The World. Eh. To each their own.
Interesting site… a few pages in I clicked through a super-realistic looking eye to see if it was really a tattoo or photoshopped, and found this guy’s stunning work:
AH! So there’s the droid I was looking for…
I find that extremely sexy.
I got a tattoo of a tattoo. Is that cool or stupid?
Lydia has a tattoo of her social security number there.
That was pretty common for a few years, there… I’ve seen lots of loggers of a certain age tattooed with same, though it’s usually on a forearm.
And yet another tattoo that ” I did for myself” that they can’t even see.
That tatto fills the entire space behind her ear. It isn’t tiny
It would be better with R5D4 and “Bad Motivator” in Old English font on somebody’s bicep.
R2D2 in the ear tattoos, good too and I can try to make the android tatoo
