Garden Chair

"You know what, I want my tat to be special, no dragons or tribals .. I guess a garden chair would be something that I always wanted to be inked on me"

Maybe he's a furniture designer. MAYBE HE INVENTED THAT CHAIR.
You're an idiot.

On a sidenote though, the blood tattoos after this post are really really awful.

Why the hell did you do that?

YOU ARE MARKED FOR LIFE.

What were you smoking? actually?

You are an insult. AN INSULT.

Insult to life.

Stupid boy. Stupid stupid boy.

It reminds me of some book I read as a kid. One of the characters has the opportunity to get a tattoo for his eleventh (or something-th) birthday, and comes back with a picture of a potato. Strange, but at least its unique.

ML said...

I actually think this is a unique and refreshingly offbeat choice for a tattoo.

Really enjoyed your blog! Keep it up! I will be back!

I want to know the significance... did he lose his virginity on a lawn chair?

Anonymous said...

Like most tattoos, there is most likely no significance. He probably just wanted to be "original" or "random", or something. Although I have been wrong before. The subject matter aside, it's not so bad. Just really really weird.

Umm, I kinda like it too...but I hope it is because he genuinely likes garden chairs, not because he is trying to be "wacky". Probs not though, huh?

I hate tatoos but some ideas was great (on the other person, not on me).

It's a PLASTIC chair, for God's sake. $5 at the grocery store. What could he have been thinking?

Hallie said...

Dane said...

NICE! I love random object tattoos!

sour said...

haha I like this one. It could have been done better, but in a way, don't we all have a garden chair tattooed on our hearts?

Or something?

That's funny, because lately I've been noticing that those white plastic chairs are EVERYWHERE. You see them in photos taken in the remotest of places. Now here's one on some dude's ankle. Awesome.

Charlene said...

It would have been awesome if it'd been done well. It's stretched out and awkward.

TheGerund said...

I think that it is a nice tattoo. Perhaps it reminds him of a special summer, or of his childhood? Maybe he wants ro remind himself to live a stoic and serene life, much like the life of a lawnchair. Some of you folks are such pessimists.

Huh, cafepress thinks the image is "trendy".

@Sam, you mean one of the Sideways Stories from Wayside School books by Louis Sachar!

Hey, at least it isn't tribal... or god-awful foreign lettering.

Anonymous said...

yeah, looks comfortable.

bigbadassdog said...

not bad, different, not offensive, or "unique", I wouldn't do it, but whatever, its his skin

Anonymous said...

The chair should be on his butt where you sit

Anonymous said...

I like it! At least it's not another tribal band or something horribly generic like that.

carlos said...

I think it's cool.

takka said...

i love it!

John, you should make tattoo of a gold bullion. it cost a lot of monet!

I am the owner of this tattoo, you can choose to believe me or not, but hey, here's my side of the story:
Me and my best friend was drinking at his place, we were planning a trip to the Netherlands (we are from Norway). I said I wanted a tattoo, and his reply was inaudible, so I thought I heard "how about a garden chair?" We thought it was funny, and he actually paid for it once we got to Amsterdam (best €60 spent, ever). Now, on a sadder note, he has passed away, so this tattoo actually serves as a tribute-tattoo. The story of my tattoo has travelled much further than I will ever travel.
