The Funk of Forty Thousand Years


When Andy sent in this zombie Michael Jackson tribute (?) portrait, it was accompanied with the ever-present, “Too soon?” Now, under normal circumstances, sure, getting a tattoo of a recently deceased celebrity as a hideous member of the walking dead may be in poor taste, but hey, Michael Jackson was arguably most famous for a video in which he appeared…as a zombie! If anything, this is how he would want to be memorialized! (Maybe not.) At any rate, our initial clinical reaction was, No, this isn’t too soon. Get yer MJ zombie on with impunity and a clear conscience, folks!

Oh, right, and then we noticed his right hand. You are going to Hell.

(Tattoo by Bryan Lewis at Ink Factory Tattoo and Piercing in Hudson, Wisconsin.)

  1. Am i the only one that have played the game “plants vs. zombies”?
    There is a zombie character in that game that looks just like that zombie tattoo.
    I guess thats where the inspiration came from.

  2. Actually Bryan free handed that with insperation from his own screwed up little brain. I would say on the 1 to 10 of socialy twisted tattoos that he has done I would give it a 6, yeah 6. As for the owner of the leg on witch this fitting tattoo is located. His list of debochery far exceeds any shot of him going anywhere but hell. These two fellas are some of my best friends, I dont think this website is really ready for the dirty shit that we think of on a day to day basis, much less all of the things we have decided to tattoo on each other. I LOVE YOU DAD!

  3. So wrong but so damned good! How can you not love it!
    The sparkly glove, the eye, the lolly, the crotch grab….so good!

  4. This tattoo is awesome. Especially the kids arm in his hand. Cos you know for sure MJ ate children, not saying which part he liked to put in his mouth of course…

  7. I thought he was holding some fried chicken at first, but the kids arm is much better :)
