Fickle Tattoos


I’ve often considered getting a tattoo but given my innate and highly rational fear of needles, I’ve never quite had the courage (nor been quite drunk enough) to take the plunge. I think it’s probably always more sensible to take things for a dry-run in order to make sure you don’t look like a complete douchebag and if there is one thing in particular that a dry-run was invented for, it’s tattoos. Well, as luck would have it, I’ve got the perfect opportunity to test out my tattoo credentials and ensure that I don’t go off the doucheter scale (I imagine you measure levels of doucheness in similar terms to an earthquake) and they go by the name of Fickle Temporary Tattoos.

Given my addictive personality, I dare say that I’ll end up covered head to toe in these awesome looking temporary tattoos and as I’ve just had my weekly bath, they will be there for the next 7 days or so, it will give me an excellent opportunity to road test tattoos and gauge people’s response to my heavily inked frame. I think these tattoos will give me the edgy look that I’m after but the child-like way in which I still dress will probably counter this edginess and should this test go well, I’ll get smashed on a shit-tonne of Guinness and get the tattooist to trace over the remnants of my Fickle Tattoos which, truth be told, he’ll probably see as a bit of an affront to his tattooing capabilities.

Update: He tattooed “Douche” on my forehead. Looks alright.


Newton’s cradle. Most requested tattoo of 2013. Everyone loves a good Newton’s cradle.
