Drunk and high on Xanax, a friend of redditor yllwsnow2 made the spontaneous and well-considered decision to give himself the WORST POKEMON TATTOO EVER WITNESSED ON THE INTERNET. Behold this Charmander tat:
While it is seemingly mind-bogglingly awful, there IS some logic behind this - it was based on illustrator HatBoy's Tim Burton-style Pokemon drawings:
Still, even with that knowledge, it was a prettttttttty awful version of that (very nice) drawing. And, naturally, the internet loved it to no end.
It all started, really, when kaldrazidrim made a digitized version of the awful Charmander tattoo:
...then someone used that to make a shirt.
...and then on a bottle.
...then into a coffee bag label, for some reason.
...then into a necklace.
...then lasered onto a FREAKING wedding ring?!
...then a plush doll. Yep.
...then an embroidery, because why not?
...then the tattoo, digitized version, and bottle all went onto a t-shirt.
...which was then, as a whole image, printed onto a hoodie?
...and then, just pure ol' internet chaos.
And we show you this, but honestly, it seems like there's no end in sight. One person's shitty, drunken Pokemon tattoo has spawned a booming internet meme. All we can do is huddle down and wait for this to pass by.
Until then, there are people framing pictures of the dude wearing the shirt with three versions of the Charmander tattoo.
