This Terrible Affliction


Look, I’m not going to pretend I know what’s going through the mind of someone when they decide to get a tattoo that combines Mario Brothers monsters with the worst toilet in Scotland (courtesy of Trainspotting), but whatever it is, I am so, so glad it’s there.

“I have a customer who loves ridiculous tattoos,” says the artist, Kelly Doty at Turnpike Tattoo in Meriden, Connecticut, “which is great, because I love doing ridiculous tattoos.” She calls this one, strangely enough, “the majestic venus poop trap, found in its natural habitat.” Keep it up.

  1. That’s great. And it’s def. the pipe dwelling plant thingies from Mario Bros., not Audrey II.

  2. This is actually my tattoo, and I highly recommend Kelly, though I don’t believe she’s at Turnpike Tattoo anymore.
