xkcd tattoos

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:

xkcd You're a kitty tattoo

Unfortunately we don’t have a lot of info on this tattoo that comes to us via BMEzine (NSFW). All they have to say is: Tattoo by “The dude that lives in Thailand” at Wild Tattoo, somewhere in Sweden.
UPDATE: Owner found! Dante writes:

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 got it because I love XKCD and that comic always puts a smile on my face. It’s just sheer genius with the whole obviousness factor and all. And the fact that people actually act like that around animals and babies…I never got that.

The inspiration behind this one:

Yes you are!  And you're sitting there!  Hi, kitty!
This other one comes from BMEInk but unfortunately with no info either.
xkcd Say Anything reference

Inspired by this one:

And she's gonna feel like a jerk when she realizes it was actually Under Pressure.
UPDATE: We’ve got another one!  Ozreiuosn on Twitter let us know that she has an xkcd related tattoo.


This time it seems to be the other way around.  An xkcd inspired by a tattoo!  Oz got herself a tattoo of windmills from Mez.  Why? She says “There’s no real deep meaning here. I just love the way they look, they are quite evocative. Creepy, alien-like, futuristic, powerful, I can’t help but stare. They freak me out a little bit but they always draw me in.” Cue creepy xkcd strip about the windmills coming to life:

The moment their arms spun freely in our air, they were doomed -- for Man has earned his right to hold this planet against all comers, by virtue of occasionally producing someone totally batshit insane.

UPDATE 2: Kitty Stryker also sent in a photo of her xkcd inspired tattoo.  She went to Sacred Rose in Berkeley, CA to get the last frame of one of my personal favorites, Grownups.

Growing Up

I've looked into this, and I can't figure out a way to do it cheaply.  And I guess it wouldn't be sanitary.

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:

    how is xkcd in any way unfunny?
    it is easily the very best webcomic.
    as funny as cyanide and happiness, as sad as pictures for sad children, geekier than penny arcade and as hip as questionable content.
    it is the one webcomic to rule them all.
