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 the tattoo, digitized version, and bottle all went onto a t-shirt.
