The face in this portrait tattoo might not be familiar to some of you, but for someone who grew up watching this series of films (me), I recognised him immediately as Cousin Eddie from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!

  1. I too grew up watching those films, and I fucking love this movie. The portrait is pretty spot on..awesome tattoo.

  2. This is a really great portrait, if I’m ever in Michigan, i know where to go.
    By the way the amount of posts has dropped over the last month or so
    Please post more.
    I need more of a Modblog fix!

  3. Haha! This is the first time in a long time that post has just made me burst out in a big smile! What an awesome tattoo! Haha! Now I want my own National Lampoon tattoo!

  4. She’s a buete clark REAAAAAAL NICE.

    i feel sorry for anyone who doesnt know who this is!

  5. that’s awesome. Why do I never see any portrait tats on modblog from artists in chicago though? It’s a bitch trying to research good artists in this city. >.<

    but seriously, nice work.

  6. This is an excellent portrait. I think what I love the most is the fur on the hat – the texture looks spot-on. Like it would actually be fuzzy if you touched it.

  7. That is a an awesome tattoo, amazing detail, but I have to say…it looks more like john belushi then randy quaid to me… maybe it’s just me…lol Still pretty sweet reguardless!

  8. I almost feel like he should be looking more.. goofy though? That’s his character, so I’d love to see him with a smile maybe? Nonetheless- amazing tattoo.

  9. Ahhh Christmas Vacation = one of the best holiday films ever made!!!! This tattoo portrait of him is really well done!
