We were almost—almost—disappointed that this glorious work of art did not include various elements, such as the crucifix, which is how you know it’s a religious tattoo, but you know what? We’re willing to look past such omissions due to the fact that even a re-interpreted Whitest Kids U’ Know tattoo is much, much better than none at all. Context and very happy birthday to Rick, after the jump.

where is the LET’S PARTY?
…and the POT LEaf ? lol…ah, this is the greatest!
Looks like this is a better tattoo. Here is another, more true to the skit:
BONERS! no, DONT DRINK BONERS! Please don’t drink boners I’m begging you no!!
Holy Crap… made my morning
OMG beat me to this one. I was gonna get it, but i would have chickened out on several of the components, too. we need some hardcore guy to get the entire thing.
It finally happened!!!
Pfft!! I think if you’re gonna do it, do it right!! Fail!
Ya this one is lacking… no music notes coming out of the guitar, not cross, no pot leaf…. FAIL
and that geekologie post is a photoshop
No pot leaf, but still pretty fucking kewl.
i hate to be a naysayer, but in order to give such a large chunk of prime skin up to something like the WKUK bowser, i really wish it would have been exactly as he described it in the skit. all the same, its fucking hilarious and i tip my hat to the wearer.
its pretty awesome to recreate that tat, now there’s two of you walking around!
I can’t blame him for leaving out the cross or pot leaf – he may like Bowser, and he may think the skit’s funny, but those other two icons probably represent a lifestyle he’s not a part of. Better to go “inaccurate” in such an event, then have iconography you’re uncomfortable with as part of your body forever.
BABY BOWSER +1
amazing fukin amazin but i dont think the other 1 every 1 else is posting is real looks photos s
that other tattoo is most definitely photoshop’d. nice try internet!
I wonder how often this happens to tattoo artists? I’d keep sharpies around just in case…
15, 16, the other ones real but poorly executed, there were pictures of it being done at some point but they appear to have been lost to the depths of the Internet.
But…but…Bowser wasn’t in Super Martio Bros. 2! It was a repackaged version of Doki Doki Panic and had a boss named Wart.
Cute though, quite cute.
One of my most favourite videos, ever. Has me in fits, everytime.
Love the bowser!
About damn time Bowzer got props from BME.
Ye Gods Trevor Moore is hot with his 2 inch guns. No, srsly.
