Who’d have thought that “Don’t Mess With Texas”, a government anti-littering campaign, would become so deeply ingrained into our culture (a la the Santa Claus invented by the Coca Cola corporation). This take on it — “Don’t Mess With Ex’s” — is by Chris Hornus at Consolidated Ink and Steel.
Always good advice.
Erm Shannon the image of Santa Claus in the red suit and big white beard carrying presents was created by Luis Prang in 1885 for a set of Christmas Cards. It wasn’t until 1930 that Coca Cola took the idea and adopted it as their own.
And I was still at the age of thinking Santa was a real man and not an Idea thanks alot guys you just killed the kid in me hahaah
Wow…what a creepy tattoo.
He IS real. Honest…. ahem.
He’s bringing me a dermal anchor this Christmas too.
Don’t mess with ex’s what?
Jesus fucking christ, people: SPELL CHECK THAT SHIT BEFORE YOU PUT IT ON YOUR BODY.
Haddon Sundblom was the one who draw the (now) popular santa image for Coca Cola..
bravemenrun- I was thinking the same thing
Bejorn/Giles – I know, but Coca-Cola popularized it.
bravemenrun – awesome point.
But I love the idea.
Poor poor apstrophies… people abuse them so much! This tattoo is still really good. It’ kinda creepy though. If this were on someone I was thinking about dating… I might be swayed in the other direction because they could be a psycho stalker! Haha. I do like it though.
