Just about every geek knows about the chuckle-inducing web comic xkcd. If you don’t, set aside some hours to catch up to the rest of us. Then check out these xkcd inspired tattoos:

I got it in Växjö at Wild tattoo, it was done by a guy that lives in Thailand (Janne) but was there for some guest tattooing or something.

I’m still on the hunt for more xkcd tattoos. It seems like something that would inspire more than two people to get it tattooed, right? So if you know anyone else with an xkcd tattoo, or the owners of the above ink, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
