I don’t know who Ryan Cabrera is (and a quick google search confirmed that he is not the same person as Chris Carrabba), but his description at the top of this article is: “The spiky-haired singer, who once romanced Ashlee Simpson on her MTV reality show and later Audrina Patridge on “The Hills.” Hahahah. Ryan, YOU DOG! The joke really is on me, though, because I absolutely watched both of those shows and somehow didn’t retain the identities all of the spiky-haired boyfriends. A real waste of time, apparently. I’m glad I know about him now, though, because he has a pretty special tattoo he wants to share. From OMG! Yahoo (oh brother, Yahoo.):
While a lot of women would surely want anything of Ryan Gosling stamped on their body, Cabrera has revealed that the tattoo came about as part of a game that he and his friends call tattoo roulette.
Cabrera described it in an interview that he gave with Lance Bass [Ed Note: What? Why with Lance Bass?] on the SiriusXM Radio show “Dirty Pop” last month.
“Me and my buddy we go in [the tattoo parlor] and he chooses one thing off the wall for me, then I choose one thing for him,” Cabrera explained. “You can’t see it until after it’s done and then we unveil them at the same time.”
Cabrera’s body is also graced with a unicorn and a Care Bear from the game, which sounds … pretty terrible. At least there are a few restrictions on what one person can pick for the other.
“The only rules are that it can’t be religious and it can’t offend anybody,” Cabrera noted, adding that he selected a Hershey’s Kiss for his opponent when he was inked with Gosling’s likeness.
Goooooooooooooood game, Ryan Cabrera! “Another rule is that we can never tattoo the year of the other person’s birth on their body because the black hair dye, chest waxing, long necklaces, youthful rejection of the idea that consequences exist, and the youthful thought process that says ‘we know life is short, but what we don’t know is that life isn’t THAT short,’ are doing a good job of covering that up and we don’t want to blow it.” (Weird how they cut out such a long quote at the end!) Anyway, great Ryan Gosling tattoo, Ryan. I’m not 100% sure why that was ON THE WALL of the tattoo parlor, but I’m glad that it was. It sounds really fun. You seem like you’re doing great, and whether or not that was said with sincerity I want you to know that I do sincerely HOPE that you’re doing great. Thanks for sharing!
