Um… Ok… Liana’s tattoo is by Ryan Zachary (ryanzachary.net) in Portland, OR. I don’t really know what it means but I like it.

  1. I really like it, too. I enjoy tattoos that seem to have an elaborate story behind them that you’ll never know for whatever reason.

    Having said that, I think this is pretty funny and really cool on its own, without a story.

  2. If an albatross is anywhere as aggressive as the geese I saw on ebaumsworld yesterday, I wouldn’t be standing that close with my package unprotected

  3. on dictionary.com (I thought I’d post this because albatross is one of my favourite words):

    2. a seemingly inescapable moral or emotional burden, as of guilt or responsibility.
    3. something burdensome that impedes action or progress.

  4. i actually laughed out loud. you know sometimes i forget what the relative size of an albatross is aswell

  5. “the relative size of the liana”

    holy blazes, i love my tattoo. you’re the man, ryan.

  6. I love this and have no idea why. It makes me think of Wes Anderson maybe?

  7. The ancient Mariner inhospitably killeth the pious bird of good omen.

    `God save thee, ancient Mariner !
    From the fiends, that plague thee thus !–
    Why look’st thou so ?’–With my cross-bow
    I shot the ALBATROSS.

    the rime of the ancient mariner.
