Why is this so hard to understand? I know Troy isn’t good at communicating his thoughts via writing or english in general, but he’s saying that because Joe used one of his drawings on a ‘customer,’ Joe should pay him 10 USD as copy write compensation.
The high life tattoo reminds me of my brother’s friend’s tattoo which he got while on way too much Meth (then again, what amount isn’t too much when it comes to Meth)… except, I hate to say it, the high life tattoo is better. My brother’s friend’s tat is supposed to say “No Fear” (which is dumb regardless) but since there are no similar letters it actually says “Neo Fear” since the N and O are on the opposite sides of the E in fear going down vertically. So dumb. The only plus side to my brother’s friend’s tat is that it is done well other than the totally incorrect spelling.
@vitamin_k I think what the green is is the neon/fluorescent green ink, ink usually leeches from the skin during the tattooing process. My husband got a colored tat on his forearm and the tattoo artist was always wiping away the access ink which would smear around the cite. The think that gets me is that it looks glow-in-the-dark… is that safe? Probably not… silly of me to ask.
@Stam I’ve got a couple of tatts (done by professionals) where ink leeched out a bit but I didnt get a stain like that. I guess it varies with types of ink. Or maybe it’s just most of the ink didn’t make it under the skin, who knows with Joe
@emkitteh you’re right, it really sounds like Troy is trying to be serious about the legality of copyright… what was it that tipped you off, the ‘lol’? I know I put that in all my serious legal matters.
P.S. Kiddies… Think before you ink! It’s permanent, as Joe has delightfully detailed for us! Just think about what your grandchildren will say when they see a pot leaf on your forearm. (Get it on your ass, out of sight…out of mind. Plus what grandpa shows his ass to his grand kids. It’s a safe zone!)
eenerbl, you would think it’s a safe zone, but you never met my Grampy Jack. Sure, most of the time it was my ass getting tattooed by his electric needle (actually, it was more of a hydraulic pump thing, but whatever). However, on occasion he liked to make me plant the Soup family tree into his dark soil.
Wow, I got two bitter responses from you. I must have really hit a nerve. I don’t usually correct people’s spelling on here but the fact that you made numerous mistakes and then went on to correct just one of them, AND excuse yourself for it, AND bring up that you’re writing a research paper, well, it tickled my funny bone just right.
Also, oh wow, you mean Troy wasn’t being serious about that copyright thing?? I never would have figured that out. I just find that jokes are funnier when they aren’t stupid, that’s all. N.B. adding ‘lol’ doesn’t make something funny.
Oh and thanks for that Good Samaritan of the Day award. I’ll keep an eye on the post for my certificate.
I’m still laughing at you’re brother’s bad ass “neo fear” tattoo.
Had no idea a yin yang could go so horribly wrong. Looks like he ran out of black ink and just left it like that… Good thing he decided to ink on a doobie beside that pot leaf and “high life” or he probably wouldn’t get his point across that he’s super high, lol.
in all fairness to joe’s horrendous tattooing abilities, that’s a pretty nice and accurate-ish pot leaf.. I’m a graphic designer and had to take all those dumb drawing classes for my BA and i reeeally can’t draw a nice-looking one.
What in god’s name would she say when you stripped naked and saw these atrocities? I still don’t even know what the first one says. What’s worse is the fact that, out of the entire of Troy’s body, he chose the high-life one in exactly the right position to overlap the luminous green cannabis… er, stencil. Lamebook has a [pooless] Fro-joe.
Someone needs to report this guy to appropriate authorities before he starts an outbreak of MRSA or gives someone hepatitis. He’s obviously not tattooing this guy in a legit shop. Yeah, the shitty tattoos are funny, but this shit is seriously dangerous and needs to be stopped before someone gets hurt.
Thanks Bam but I did use the wrong word, I should have used “leach” instead of “leech” although, leech does make for a whole new meaning… I’s gets cornfused sumtimz carn sarn it. The best part is I’m going to school to be a grad-school teacher, muahaha.
To be completely honest and fair, it looks like someone is learning how to make tattoos using a “Learn to Tattoo!!! Kit” (which I’m sure MUST be available somewhere on Teh Internetz) instead of the time-honored traditions of apprenticeship, and the only person who is willing to give up his body for this learning is a complete pothead; this is only right as a complete pothead is intent on destroying his body anyway, so what the hell, go on ahead and fuck up that temple, dude!
