I remember a few years back (pre 2008), the mantra was "I wouldn't want to work for a company that didn't accept my tattoos, anyway"

Wish granted.

Unless he's looking in the mirror all the farking time, it really does seem like a bizarre way to overcome a fear of spiders.

Getting a tarantula as a pet would be more effective. Although I would worry about the poor tarantula...

The shadows of the legs are not consistent.  Perhaps the artist made consideration for multiple light sources.

I have tats all over my face and am better educated and earn more money than any of you conformist pieces of shiat.

Not sure that "art" entered into the equation here.

I was wondering if there was an even crappier tattoo of a spider under it that's been covered up.

My spider-thread post to freak out the arachnophobes:

I would like a genetically altered spider. Preferably one of those brightly colored ones we're finding in the rain forests. Maybe the size of a labrador or so. Let him have run of the basement, feed him the local stray cats and dogs. Would the increased brain-size allow it to be domesticated? Be able to teach it tricks: "roll over!" "sit in that roof-corner!" "the beer is only for me!" It'd be cool, bizarre, and announce my insanity; THE PERFECT PET!

/guy in tfa is a 'tard, but tag kinda already covered that

A friend saw the pic and said it would take everything she has not to knock that thing off his face with her shoe. She's been known to go berserk over fake cockroaches, so I believe her.

Here he is, cropped from another photo, without the tattoo

Zoom on the right side of his face a little,

i192.photobucket.com

I don't think it was a cover up of prior art.

The dude just got a bad tattoo.  The bad tattoo of a lifetime.  I hope he knows how to dig a ditch.

What's he gonna do when he forgets to shave?  Is the critter gonna crawl out from under the scruff?  As if shaving to show off his tattoo is a concern.  I hope he is able to get it together and do something productive.  If that's asking too much, I just hope he can live his life as well as he can while bearing a goddamned spider on his face.
