Shortly after this photo was taken, Mario (pictured above) climbed a vine up to a cloud and punched the shit out of a turtle. Err, wait, this is Andres, and he says:
Mushrooms have always been seen as a way to get in contact with inner knowledge. The symbolism [of this tattoo] is to drive my inner knowledge out of my body, through my tongue and turn it into words of knowledge.
(Tattoo by Alejandro Cole at Stattoos in San Pedro, San Jose, Costa Rica.)

Probably a silly question…but I wonder how much that hurts?
Cute. Clever. But I hope he has a good independent career.
in the wrong light…that looks like a penis,smooth move exlax
And I wonder how long it will last!
To my knowledge tongue tattoos don’t typically last very long at all.
What a daft reason for getting a tattoo. Why doesn’t he just admit he’s a shroomer and wanted a cute tattoo to make people giggle.
it’s a nice concept and all
but tongue tattoos don’t do much for me..
Tongue tattoos are usually hopeless from the get go, it’ll disappear
being a shroomer really shouldn’t be something to be proud of
Amanita Muscaria! Setting sail on the dark ocean of consciousness, plucking out bits of universal wisdom, knowledge, truth and love. Then attempting to actualize these concepts through symbolism, using actions, intentions, linguistics, art, learning, teaching and evolving consciously. Fungus has been around millions of years, it contains quite a bit of information on reality and culture.
Honestly, I kind of wish the motivation behind this tattoo really was Super Mario. The actual explanation was definitely lame.
i love it!
dude digs shrooms, a-ok in my books.
we all know drugs are bad mmmkay!
go preach to someone who cares jonny
ps someone who has an upside down cross on his iam really shouldn’t be throwing stones. your beliefs, his lifestyle. get over it.
pps i forgot to say i obviously think it’s RAD but fuck that pain dude.
not a fan.
he has really nice eyes !!
At least it’s not a crack pipe and a spoon.
Wow! what’s with the anti-psychedelic sentiment around here. You’d think a bunch of modified people would be more open minded than that! I’ve actually enjoyed psychedelics shortly after every major modification I’ve made, I don’t attribute the effects to any notion of spiritualism, just plain enjoyable, and a good way to spend time with yourself.
Implants won’t work.
Ear implants won’t work.
Transdermals won’t work.
Surface piercings won’t work.
Tongue tattoos won’t work.
When will people realize that the fact that something hasn’t worked yet doesn’t mean it never will. My inner lip tattoo (which people also say never work) has been there with almost no ink loss for a good five or six years. Want a tongue tattoo that works? Easy! Just start doing more of them until you figure out what works and what doesn’t, then refine from there. With tongue tattoos, there’s not even a big scar or anything, so there’s really little reason to not try.
THAT IS FUCKING RAD.
am i the only one noticing that Jordan used Tool lyrics in the title again??
@ 23…nope 🙂
I sang as I read it.
who cares if he’s a shroomer?
I don’t, it’s his life. Not mine.
On another note, that is an interesting concept and I totally dig it, rock on!
people who think that drugs are the path to enlightenment are kidding themselves
