Three Thousand Years of Beautiful Tradition

We’ll confess that we have a very hard time saying no to John Goodman tattoos—especially when some enterprising individual (in this case, Vincent Leblanc at Traditional Tattoo in San Luis Obispo, California) decides to combine his legendary performance as Walter Sobchak in The Big Lebowski with a goddamned zombie. Was Walter just not enough of a sociopath in the film that you had to give him an insatiable hunger for delicious brains, too? We approve, of course—Zombie Sobchak can get you a toe by three o’clock with the best of them. You may just have to extract it from his lower intestine.

Return the Salute

Good morning, ModBloggers! Hope this sunny first Monday of autumn finds you well. Let’s begin our week with a murderous zombie, identified by its wearer as “Bub” from George A. Romero’s 1985 romantic comedy Day of the Dead. “It may be corny,” she says, “but Bub is destined to win your heart over, and that is why I got him on me. Along with the fact that [Day of the Dead] is one of my favorite movies.” Hey, that’s good enough for us, folks. Really exquisite work here. And now…time for lunch.

Their Tanks and Their Bombs

And here we have Sao Paulo, Brazil’s O Corsario, showing off this brand new nightmarish zombie erotica, as tattooed by Berribilli. I’m liking the uncommon undead color scheme, all pinks and purples and lime greens. Kinda reminds me of a Vuarnet sweater I owned in the ’80s, except, you know, more brain-thirsty.
