A Potato Tattoo

Sideways Stories Potato Tattoo

Remember Sideways Stories from Wayside School? If so, you’ll appreciate this tattoo. The owner, Alex, writes in:

I just got my very first tattoo and it’s totally geeky, just like me, ha ha.

So if you’ve read the book “Wayside School is Falling Down,” then you probably are familiar with the story of Calvin. His dad decides to let him get a tattoo and everyone in class gives him all these suggestions. He considers getting a leopard fighting a snake, but in the end he gets a potato just above his left ankle. Everyone thinks it’s stupid, but he knows he made the right choice, or at least he’s pretty sure.

And a pic of the happy tattooee and tattooer:
