Antoine Dodson Tattoo

Hey guys, I just wanted to give everyone a quick, friendly reminder about tattoos: they are forever. Yeah. I know that in our hectic modern world of SEXTING and Razr Scooters that it can be pretty hard to remember everything, and maybe some of you forgot that when you get a tattoo on your body, it is there until your are dead and all of the flesh rots away from your bones and rejoins Mother Gaia. So, say for example, that you wanted to get a gigantic tattoo on your forearm of Antoine Dodson, the subject of a popular Internet meme of the summer of 2010 with absolutely no sustainability: please just keep in mind when you are thinking of doing this that the tattoo of Antoine Dodson is going to be on your body for the rest of your life, long after anyone remembers who Antoine Dodson is, perhaps even long after you remember who Antoine Dodson is, if you happen to succumb to the increasingly pervasive disease of Alzheimer’s. Even if you somehow mange to survive 2012, you’ll be left to float along the water-soaked wastes of humanity’s wreckage with a giant tattoo of Antoine Dodson on your forearm. In this scenario, one would assume that you would have more pressing concerns than the regretful tattoo decisions you made in a life and world that no longer exist, and yet one can still imagine you huddled on your makeshift raft, staring out with blistered eyes over an endless ocean of solitary horror, glancing down at your own reflection in the abyss of your inevitable doom, and catching a glimpse of your fucking Antoine Dodson tattoo and just being like, “fuck.” Just something to think about before you make up your mind!

  1. Maybe the guy from Memento, bored after having solved his wife’s murder, took a sudden interest in internet memes. That is the only excuse I can imagine for this.

  2. Fake and Gay!

  3. so glad i saw this post. i was on my way to get a tattoo of the “strut that ass” guy. now i’ll have to rethink that.

  4. *sadly looks down at his tattoo of David After the Dentist*

  5. The other guy is going to be so mad when he realizes they tattoed Atoine Dodson around the words “Aunt Jemima Breakfast Club”.

    Devastating tattoo parlor mix-up.

  6. Me and my tattoo of T. Mills will continue to be young, thank you very much!

  7. I’m no doctor, but my guess is that’s a calf, not a forearm.

    Popeye would disagree, but he’s a cartoon for Pete’s sake.

  8. Hardly even looks like Antoine Dodson, looks more like old school Aunt Jemima.

    Anyone?

  9. That tattoo is going to open up a neverending Poon train on that guy

  10. So I guess this isn’t the time to show off my Birdie tattoo

  11. And if you don’t take Gabe’s advice, at least get a tattoo artist who will actually draw a nice portrait of Antoine and not just copy a sad photoshop filter.

    • Well, put this right up there with things I am shocked to find out I know.

      • To clarify: Walking down the street with a friend, do I get stopped by someone, have an extended conversation with them, based seemingly in years of knowing them, then, while walking away, turn to my friend and apologize for not introducing them, but explain that I forgot that person’s name and occasionally explain that I actually have no idea who that person was? Yes, yes I do.

        Do I recognize a picture of a philosopher who I have read one book by? Yes, yes I do.

        Also:

        Do I remember any state capitols beside about 6? Any dates in American history? Any birthdates of friends and family? No.

        Do I remember the class of pretty much any ship in Star Trek? Yes.

Yes, yes I do.”

          Yes, yes you have.

          You have also won a bet with me wherein I stated that I had not seen a certain movie, which I don’t remember which it is right now, and you asserted that I had, and you were correct, and I had to bake you a pie.

          I am also shocked at the things you know.

    • I feel like Zizek would love this tattoo. “Something something postmodern signifier something homeboy.” – Slavoj Zizek. #philosophygum

  12. I still stand by my Avoid the Noid tatoo! Never FORGET!

  13. Who is Antoine Dodson?

  14. fucking well written

  15. He looks like a particularly intricate pumpkin stencil.

  16. I have but one thing to say to the Recipient of this Tattoo, and to the Artist who perpetrated this (GOD-AWFUL) work:
    To Quote Mr Antoine Dobson;

    “You Are So Dumb, You are Really Dumb, Fo Real.”

  17. At least he had the decency to not tattoo the word ‘rape’ on his body?

  18. Well, I may be dating myself, but when 2012 comes I think my “Where’s the beef?” tattoo is going to take on some extra poignancy.

  19. Fuckin’ bad decisions, how do they work?

  20. Gabe, your arms are cramazingly buff. You should show them off more.

  21. no regrets

  22. Nobody has a sad keanu tattoo yet?
    Chris Trash?
