  3. “Shimmer” is their song. That’s too funny.

    And I kind of wish I had a Gatorade tat, now…

  4. “Is it in you?”

    If you have to ask, probably not.

  5. Gatorade? Didn´t recognise it, don´t see it around that much. I did however think that it was something to do with Harry Potter. Maybe talking about if his wand is in ‘it’?

  6. MonkeyCMonkeyDo

    LOL @ throwingtofu you beat me to it!

  7. According to the Wikipedia article on ‘Shimmer’, “The lyrics of this song talk about (Guitarist/Songwriter) Carl Bell’s ex-girlfriend who is suffering from a bad marriage that she can’t get out of.”

    I agree with Benisglory. What a ‘wonderful’ song to choose as the theme for your relationship or marriage!

  8. LMAO Monkey, sorry

  9. Add to that, I love the fact that they chose a song from a mediocre late-nineties band that had a very limited shelf-life.

    I should note, I actually enjoy the song myself…for nostalgic reasons, only.

    So…funny.

  10. MsBuzzkillington

    I never knew that asking “is it in yet?” was a good thing.

  11. Also, I guess I’ll be the first to throw these two tattooed ones some kudos for at least taking shots that weren’t all swollen and red.

  12. I actually don’t mind the second tattoo itself – it’s clean, pretty, and the lettering is consistent. Also, the term was around since looooong before that song “All that shimmers isn’t gold”, so ignoring the idea behind the tattoo (which we all know is SUPPOSED to be the whole reason a person gets a tattoo lol), makes it a little less ridiculous, with that horrid song.

  13. Without knowing what Will’s anniversary is of, I’m willing to give some leeway there. “Our” song doesn’t mean they’re married and it’s their wedding song. He could’ve died ten years ago and it was their favorite song together.

  14. Who's That Girl?

    1. Ugh. That will never be in me.

    2. Ummm…the tat’s okay, but does she actually know the words to Shimmer? Actually, I can’t talk. My “our song” was “Baby got Back”…

  15. I think, originally, the saying read: All that glitters is not gold.

    I may be wrong.

    Either way, all scenarios considered, I do find it a humorous way to remember someone or to celebrate something.

    May be just me.

  16. Who's That Girl?

    I’m gonna have that damn Fuel song stuck in my head for a week now…

  17. It’s actually “all that glisters is not gold”, but yeah, frequently rendered as glitters. That’s your pedantry update. Don’t all rush out and get tattoos now.

  18. You know what cures that? Chumbawumba’s “Tubthumping.”

  19. Our song is Lotion by The Greenskeepers. I don’t see the problem here.

  20. Who's That Girl?

    AHHHHHHHHH! I hate you Ben!

  21. if the rest of the 2nd tattoo is in cursive, then her tattoo reads all that shinners. cursive m’s have 3 humps.. not 2!

  22. Unfortunately, the only thing that will get that song out…is a bullet.

    I’m sorry about this. Truly am.

  23. Who's That Girl?

    How about Bullet? As in Bullet for My Valentine :-)

  24. @sadie
    It’s written correctly. The first hump is the connecting one. It may be a little small, but it’s technically two lowercase Ms.

  25. Heh, writing Shazam! above the lightning bolt would have been funnier, the gatorade slogan just tells girls you have a small dick, HA!

  26. sadie703, you see how the connecting line from the “i” goes up into the “m”, which then goes back down and THEN starts the “m”. Yeah, the cursive is fine. Most typography looks nothing like actually handwriting, and I think it would look awful if it had three full humps.

  27. @WTG This is no laughing matter. I’ve been hospitalized on six different occasions for trying to manually remove songs from my brain. I tried everything from claw hammers to pinning my head under the rear passenger-side tire of a Jeep Wrangler that was left in neutral on an incline. The doctors tell me that next time I’d be better off just blowing it out of there.

  28. Oh, and if you want to judge it by its cursive, the capital “A” and “S” are completely wrong.

  29. Who's That Girl?

    Wow Ben – people actually advise you to put a bullet in your head. You must make a good impression. I own guns. I’m here for ya babe.

  30. I’ll take “Tubthumping” over “It’s a Small World” anyday…

  31. It’s either that or a lobotomy.
    Once those late-nineties one-hit-wonders get into your brain…they don’t come out easy.

    I’m just tryin’ to ease the suffering, is all.

  32. i love malteaser too

    Lightning dolt

  33. prolefeedprocessor

    Again, I like the Gatorade tattoo. It’s creative.

  34. I had to Youtube that song, because I had no idea what the fuck everyone was talking about. While nothing special, it sure beats the hell out of all the little emo kids screaming into microphones these days.

  35. Oh how I laughed and laughed when Dylan asked if it’s in

  36. dylans gf has the tatoo, are you finished yet

  37. @Dylan:
    No, its not in me but I hope for the AIDs is in you.

    @Benisglory:
    Tubthumping can be cured by Aqua’s Barbie Girl. No need to thank me.

  38. Bucky Fellini

    37 comments and not one person has called Dylan a douchebag? C’mon, people! We have protocol to follow! Obviousdouche is obvious!

  39. Beyond the song itself, I find it convenient that she didn’t get the rest of that lyric tattooed on her. I guess she doesn’t want to be reminded that what it really says is “all that shimmers in this world is sure to fade away.” How romantic.

  40. OK, I did laugh at the Gatorade tattoo, but Dylan had better pray that Gatorade doesn’t change slogans any time soon… and also that he doesn’t start secreting orange or blue or purple fluid like the dudes in those Gatorade commercials. See a doctor, dude.

    Funny tattoos are great, but they’ve got to be enduring. Have a buddy with a “MADE IN THE USA” stamp tattooed on his butt. Ha-larious.

  41. if you have to ask if it’s in, then you have some problems in that department.
    i really don’t see anything wrong with the shimmer tat. it looks good and i wouldn’t have known it was a song lyric until i read the caption.

  42. I’m just glad that everything is spelled correctly. All of those misspelled tattoos were starting to depress me.

  43. I have to give the douche award to Alen00x and his “hilarious site”.

  44. JustAnotherAsian

    Lamebook should ban all the user names which start with Alen, if it’s possible. Just saying.

  45. @sabretooth47:

    Thanks for helping bring back some vivid memories of tripping at Disneyland.

  46. Pic 1

    For just a second I thought he was paying tribute to the classic Chilli Peppers song, “Give it away”.

    But no, just a guy paying tribute to his small dick.

  47. Hello, girls. So I’ve managed to get you back to my place, and obviously at some point I must have convinced you to have sex with me, otherwise we wouldn’t be undressing right now.

    But maybe you’re a little unsure. Maybe you’re wondering if this was the right decision. You’re a little worried about sleeping with me. Understandable, I can seem a little odd. A little ‘over quirky’. But don’t worry, okay? Because I’ve got something, right, that’ll clear your mind of all it’s fears. Okay. So don’t worry.

    Because if you’re having second thoughts now, you just wait till you see the hilarious sexual reference above my cock. Sex AND a laugh. I bet that’s refreshing, right?

    Wait… no… you can… I’ll put the pants back on if you want…

  48. StopDoingThat

    @nuff – “Shazam!” That was fucking hilarious. Thank you.

  49. BritishHobo – Nice one!

  50. What`s wrong with the skin color of the guy (or girl) from # 2? I would even be afraid of touching that. Is it dead?? He (she) looks like a freaking zombie from a Romero Movie.

  51. BeautifullyDizzy

    ^ It’s called being fair skinned. It’s a curse that some of us have…

  52. @BeautifullyDizzy

    It’s only a curse if you can’t pull off the milky-white look like I can.

  53. Chewbacca shagger

    @ 19.Frank It’s a bit of a bizzare song to have as an “our song”.
    Put the lotion in the fucking basket, bitch!

  54. BeautifullyDizzy

    @EmKitteh
    It’s a curse if you get stuck out in the sun too long w/o sunscreen.

  55. Is it in you? Really? Why does everybody keep telling me this? It feels just fine for me.

  56. Ok guys, I pretty much already hate myself for sticking up for anyone who would tattoo anything on themselves in memory of anything. I mean, short of alzheimers, if you can’t remember something, it’s probably not important enough to tattoo yourself over. And also for being a Fuel fan.
    But, seems to me that the tat is in memory of someone who passed away, so the main line of the song, “All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade away again” seems kind of apt.
    As for it being ‘their’ song, I always thought it was about a girl who was a bit flakey, and a guy who loved her and was just trying to enjoy his time with her because he knew it wouldn’t last long. I think it’s pretty romantic, personally. Who googles the meaning of a song?! Doesn’t that take all the fun of personal interpretation out of it?!

  57. @BeautifullyDizzy

    Not if you can pull off that tomato red look… Well, okay, getting sunburnt is pretty awful but for me “too long” in the sun is between 5 and 10 minutes so I’m always prepared.

  58. (We’ll be singing, when we’re winning, we’ll be singing)

    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You nay ever gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You nay ever gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You nay ever gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You nay ever gonna keep me down

    (Pissing the night away, pissing the night away)

    He drinks a Whiskey drink, he drinks a Vodka drink
    He drinks a Lager drink, he drinks a Cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him of the better times

    (Oh Danny Boy, Danny Boy, Danny Boy)

  59. I’m gonna tattoo “Back that Ass Up” above my dick.

  60. HopScotchinQueen

    @Dees Nuts
    Please do and I will!!

  61. @cherylface – Yes, it will fade away, as will her tattoo. How ironic :)

  62. I don’t think I’d sleep with a guy with that tattoo no matter how how hot.
