Let it not be said that we are incapable of lazy blogging at the Big Bad Blog. Here are my nine most-recently-bookmarked tattoo photographs, from worst to best.
Why would somebody get this My Little Pony tattoo? I mean, thank you, but why?
Found at the Berry, with some other questionable tattoos.
The tattoos I bookmarked move away from bad to merely weird quite quickly. Here’s view #1 from under the skin, Found at FFFFound:
View #2 from under the skin, cyborg edition. Found at the Chive.
This one has breasts. And the words “Mad World”. And a bird. Found on Flickr.
You may have noticed that these are starting to actually get pretty good. Here’s the first that I am actually quite fond of. Found at FFFFound.
Another one Found at FFFFound.
I am not generally fond of hand tattoos, but this photo is marvellous. Found at FFFFound.
Perhaps this tattoo does not deserve to be here on tattoo-merit alone. But the cat tattoo, combined with the cat backdrop, makes this one a winner. Found at I Love My Lovely Loves.
I love quotation marks.

|Amanda (Fucking) Palmer writes about seeking money directly from her audience, and not being ashamed of it. It’s a brilliant look at where the business model for the music industry is headed.
