    That'd be a terrible tattoo design because of that fade around the text! (Yes, it's a cartoon, I get it...)

    I remember being so scared for years of getting a tattoo because I was over-thinking the design process. Now that I've got two, I have tattoo illness and need more, more, more.

    I don’t think there’s such a thing as a good tattoo design involving a pot leaf and “Cunt Wrecker” script.

    Well. This won't be controversial at all. I really cannot comprehend how a joke of that nature will not backfire /sarcasm

    Maybe context is needed but sometimes you guys seem to court controversy for controversy's sake. That's neither a complement nor an insult. Just a comment.

    edit.

    OK in context see what he is saying now. I still expect a torch bearing tumbler crowd to storm your gates very soon.

    $20 says that's Tycho's gamertag/Steam username/PSN account/Origin/whatever. He uses it for at least one of the above.

    I'm going to be super disappointed if that isn't his actual tattoo.

    Meanwhile, the tattoo design is totally disguising the fact that Tycho got tetanus like it ain't no thang. Like everybody's jaw locks up on them every once in a while.

    What context is needed? The whole joke is that it's in horribly bad taste. That's the punchline. It's totally out of character for Tycho.
    If the tenanus i]sic[/i story is true, I just ... I just don't ... (sigh)

    That's very dumb.

    Oh honestly. Are you really that credulous? That's obviously just a throw-away joke for the strip.

    Hopefully never. I don't find this comic at all offensive, but when you make a shirt from just that one part of it, that removes the explanatory context for the vast majority of people who see that shirt. I don't think making a shirt for this would do them any favors.

    A tshirt of that tattoo would be like some sort of weird metahumour object lesson. Tycho is inexplicably drawn to a tattoo he knows is terrible.
    Some people inexplicably want to wear a tshirt of the terrible tattoo.

    I'm so confused here by the discussion of controversy. Is everyone so quick to assume that the only way you can "wreck cunts" is by rape (the only way I see this being some kind of controversy)? There's no "cunt wrecking" with consent?

    Yeah, I just took it to be bullshit over-the-top machismo, like the expression "I fucked her brains out." I'm having a real hard time seeing how this could be controversial.

    It's getting to the point where artists can't even make fun of something that is offensive because people will get offended by the thing they are mocking.

    The joke is that the tattoo design is terrible. It does not condone or glamorize anything.

    That's the joke. I knew we would never see this in the store. I imagine Gabe and Tycho started talking IRL about what tattoo Tycho would get and it degenerated into what would be the absolute worst tattoo anybody could get and this was the output of that conversation.

    Possibly offensive is the implication, "this is the kind of tattoo that people who do get tattoos get."

    No one has actually gotten offended by it, so maybe cool it with the OH SHIT HERE COMES THE TUMBLR CROWD bullshit. The tumblr crowd have been utterly absent.

    Y'know, I see most of the comments talking about how controversy "could" be there, but nobody actually complaining about how controversial it is. It's like the calm before a storm...or you guys are looking too much into it instead of just chuckling and moving on.

    Sooo the joke is that it is offensive. Why all the SJW bullshit? I thought it was hillarious and would buy the t-shirt.

    There is no SJW bullshit. There is just people complaining about non existent SJW bullshit. I couldn't even find any on Twitter, and that blows up over everything. Shut up about the SJW phantoms already.

    Yes that's the reason it's a terrible tattoo design :P

    Anyway, speaking of tattoo meta-humour.
    There was a PATV episode about tattoos, and Erika had one of lorem ipsum, which is pretty damn funny.

    Mike's Tattoo post is pretty great, and I love the new Eyrewood design on his new sleeve. Really interested to see how the rest of it turns out.

    Because Tycho is a normal example of that kind of person?

    That's quite an audacious claim. I opt to hold judgement until the gamut of typeface has been applied. Including Wingdings 3.
    I cling to the belief that there is a typeface that will just make that phrase pop just like the phrase itself infers.

    Hi, I come from Tumblr. I am very okay with this comic. Please stop trying to make non-existent controversy. Thank you.

    Also Jerry's tattoo is really nice quality work.
