Zombie Boy

From the weird world of :

Meet Rick...

A Man Turning Himself Into A Tattooed Zombie

Doesn't he know that the easiest way to become a zombie is to get a zombie to bite you?

Trippy...I'm checking your links now.

cube said...

Trippy is one word for it. It's just not a choice I would ever make for myself. I find it fascinating that anyone ever would.

Rav`N said...

I guess you really do get all sorts. Very artistic, but not really a choice I'd make for myself either. I've toyed with the idea of getting a little tatoo now and then, but thats about as far as I'd go, and they just don't look as good against dark skin.

cube said...

rav'n: It's not for me either, but I find the psycology behind the desire to tattoo oneself in such fashion quite a fascinating subject.

Papa Frank said...

As Steven Wright would say - "I'm going to get a life size tattoo of myself only 3 inches bigger."

Z said...

I don't know, cube..I LOVE your blog, but this pic got to me BADLY!! EEEEEOOOOUUUU!!

I don't know WHY all-over tattoos bug me so badly. I don't mind a little tiny butterfly 'somewhere' or something...but this just creeps me OUT! The psychology is definitely interesting, but I have to come up with my own for it. When I got the guts to click on the article, I had to click off again. TOO MUCH info! Of course, my eyes immediately went to getting rid of his NOSE.........CUBE!!

The Merry Widow said...

Implies something lacking in their psyche! UGH!
It is an attention getting device, just more permanent than a mohawk or scraggly breard and long hair...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Geting rid of his nose? Self-mutilation? VERYdisturbed individual, who can't see past the moment.
What a waste...

cube said...

papa frank: what a witty dude.

Z: Yeah, it was disturbing to me too, but it's like a train wreck, I found myself unable to look away. I guess this guy grooves on having people stare at him.

cube said...

tmw: I think you're right about craving attention.

Not too bright, though. I think he could use some braaaains!

cary said...

A zombie, according to tradition, is a human who has been re-animated by a witch doctor. They walk around, staring blankly, aimless, no thoughts, merely following other zombies and imitating their actions.

Here in the US we call them Democrats.


cube said...

cary: lol!

Jamie Dawn said...

WAY too weird!!
I wonder what those tattoos will look like when this guy is 70? He'll be a saggy zombie.

Jen said...

Does he have a job? As long as I'm not supporting him, I don't care what he does with himself.

Seriously, though, that's just creepy. And I normally like creepy. Just not when it's permanent, I guess.

Brooke said...


Yeah, how DOES this guy hold a job?

cube said...

j.d.: I don't think people who get whole body tattoos think that far ahead. Mayhaps they don't think much at all.

jen: I wondered about his employment myself. I don't know who, besides a carnival or something in show business, would hire him.

Honestly, I don't care what people do as long as they don't hurt others in the process, but I wouldn't want to be his mother.

brooke: good question. We were wondering about that ourselves.

The real QueeQueg, that is, the harpooneer who inspired Melville to create him was of some Polynesean extraction from whence the whole tattoo biz emanated.

As it was a cultural demonstration of courage and coming of age by way of ardor and no small amount of pain, the Tattoos were profound from the initial concept through the lifetime of the owner.

Not to go too far with this but many of those I see today serve only to aggrandize the "artist" and often are boring, poorly done, regrettable/offensive and hence likely to be removed one day and, oh yes, stupid.

The tramp stamp is an example. Now what am I or Mr. Cube supposed to do when standing behind, lets say, a nubile female with just such an illustration exposed above her posterior? Hmmm?

Just theorizing,
