Denny's Tattoo Update

The marvelous Alaskan has provided me this fascinating glimpse into prison culture - and the dude at Denny's wanting a unicorn on his back. Apparently, according to the survey noted here, unicorns are a rather popular tattoo subject among the incarcerated.

Me and my magic horse, dawg. We gonna cut you!

Unicorns behind bars. Huh. Go figure.

I dunno. In my opinion, a tattoo like that in prison'll get year bootie kicked, if not worse. Just shows you how little I know aboout the American penal system. I kinda like it that way; i'd prefer to not have any firsthand experience.

If you read the article, you'll find that there's something "bootie" involved about that tattoo, but it's not kicking. It's the sign that you are somebody's prison bitch.

Weird little world we live in.

gives a whole new meaning to my little pony in light of your last comment there doesn't it merujo? ;)

Merujo said...

Ooooh my... I wonder how many prison cells have a little pony in them???

Notice that the unicorn is crying...so evidently being a prison bitch isn't an entirely magical experience.

Really, too weird for words...

Like being "bootie" is such a great experience that they wish to remember it permanently by inking it all over their body?

Alrighty then.

I also love the just-over-the-ass-crack dolphin. Are we sure this is not just some girl named "Crystal" on spring break up at the lake?

Bunny and unicorn prison tats? What a world. Whatever happened to your name, misspelled, carved in with a dull needle..and the classic "love" and "hate" on opposing knuckles.

Or, if you're one of the Blues Brothers, how about just "J-A-K-E" across your left hand?

I'm going to have to put old episodes of "OZ" back on my Netflix queue to see if there are any unicorns out there...

Just this to say - unicorn horns are rather phallic don't you think? And just saying makes me say ouch.
