Breaking Bad tattoos

A Breaking Bad fan's tattoo, shared on Instagram by actor Aaron Paul (Jesse).

Flavorwire has a post with a bunch of images of Breaking Bad fan tattoos. But it's not just fans who are obsessed with permanent fleshy commemorations of the long-running AMC series, which comes to an end soon. Actors Bryan Cranston (who plays the show's protagonist, Walter White) and Aaron Paul (who plays his meth-cooking sidekick, Jesse Pinkman) each got inked when they finished shooting the show's last season.

The final 8 episodes air on AMC starting this Sunday, August 11, and we'll have weekly recaps/analysis here on Boing Boing.

Paul speaks about his new tat on Jay Leno, here.

Here's Cranston's, above.

“It’s the Br Ba logo,” he told E! News.

“Someone said, ‘If you put it there no one can see it.’ And I said, ‘I can see it. So every once in a while I catch a glimpse of it and I see that logo from Breaking Bad and it makes me smile.”

    Although tattoos can indeed be incredibly stupid, and IMO it's quite a job to come up with something that I'd consider worthwhile, this sort of comment always profoundly annoys me.

    Incredibly stupid according to who? You're obviously not the one getting the tatts, so who gives a damn what you think? Would you be so quick to call a masterful tattoo of say, Michelangelo's David 'incredibly stupid'? Because if so, I'm pretty sure anyone even mildly interested in tattoos would be completely uninterested in anything you have to say on the matter...

    There are no shortage of folks who regard BB as the greatest thing ever to be broadcast, and now that telly is becoming an old medium, I think that means it's pretty safe to say Breaking Bad indubitably qualifies as High Art.

    And this...

    ...this is an homage par fucking excellence.

    I was pretty taken with the concept of the Jolly Roger Walt, but I felt like the execution left a bit to be desired...

    Here's my remix. Took a few pains to get more of a likeness...
