Further exploring the body mod zine linked from the previous post as a mere tangent, I remembered a favorite internet pastime: searching for awesome funnny tattoos. Especially fascinating are the people who elect to get commercially branded and children’s entertainment icons chiseled permanently into their floppy man-tits or hairy fat-backs. The internet has allowed these people to take photographs of their delightful cartoon body art and share it with the rest of us for viewing from the comfort of our own homes. God Bless America.
One of the indisputed kings of the genre is easily “Disney’s #1 Fan”, Guy George C. Reiger Jr. George has over 1,700 Disney tattoos on his body, over 24,000 pieces in his Disney collection, visits the Disney park at least once a month and lives in a custom Disney house. Essentially he is the real-world equivelent of the fictional Disney Super-Fan that wizardly stop-motion animator and filmmaker Mike Jittlov created for a pychedelic late 1970’s edition of the Wonderful World of Disney.
I’ll leave you with the wise words of poster “Veda” on a page about a baby Daffy Duck leg tattoo: “… [I] would never get a cartoon tattooed on me, but that is what makes tatts great…individual, Younique (fyi, misspell is on purpose).” Well said Veda, well said.
