NERD TATTOOS… UR DOIN IT WRONG

D’oh! According to JLP on Associated Content, I made just about every rookie mistake in the book with my new tattoo:

It’s no secret that nerds love dinosaurs. While body art of a living dinosaur is likely to look cartoonish, fossils have a certain scientific air to them. A fossil tattoo should have a subtle, classy color scheme. Fossil designs are ideal for those who want to avoid a garish, multi-colored tattoo.

Hint: Think beyond Triceratops. Consider a tattoo featuring more obscure prehistoric creatures, such as trilobites or ammonites.

Oh, why didn’t I consult the experts before I branded myself for life as a total amateur?!

But is my tattoo a fanciful picture of a fossil with floral decorations, or a scene set in the Cretaceous of a (relatively) freshly decomposed triceratops in a field of flowers? What do you think?

LOLCATS!

    Sounds too much like they’re commenting on your specific tattoo! Could be a jealous fan.

    Yes, it does oddly correspond to my tattoo and blog (trilobite, even!), but since he posted before I got the tattoo, it’s more likely that I planned it this way just to spite him! Not the case, however…
