DON'T DO IT!! For the love of GOD, Montresieur, for the love of god!
Look, I'm obviusly a Smith fan. I post here. I've got action figures. I own DVDs..I'm gonna probably take off two days from my gainful employ to go watch movies with other fans on Halloween.. I think I can understand the motives of a "fan." But can you HONESTLY say that two comedy characters who are so engaging preceisly because of their improbable and ridiculous nature deserve to be PERMANENTLY BRANDED into your living flesh, with sub-cutaneous ink that NEVER GOES AWAY UNTIL YOU DIE?!?!
I'll admit, I find the notion of ANY tattoo to be ill-advised... I mean, you can choose a religion for your soul, and that's supposed to be ETERNAL, right? Eternal is like, permanent squared. But even with that, you can decide to dump it if the mood hits you, or switch to a new one.. But a tattoo? That's forever, my friend. It don't go away. Lasers are a lie. You are going to commit two stoner characters from some funny movies onto the same leg you will own when you are EIGHTY.
Imagine if you grandfather had a Fatty Arbuckle tattoo on his ass.. You'd be left forced to declaring him a complete boob.
What if your uncle had a "Keep on Truckin" Crumb dude forever emblazoned across his pelvis? How sad would that be?
If you are dead set on getting you skin forever and indelibly disfigured, and are willing to shoulder the life-long commitment to the prejudices of others who will form opionions based on such things, PLEASE, at least go tradtional... Get a heart with an arrow thru it, and the word "MOM" in a scroll beneath. Or an anchor.
Or save your money, your skin, and maybe the heartache of losing a really good job 10 years from now,or maybe repelling with a 1st impression the woman who was *supposed* to be your Mrs. Right; Every 10 years, you're such a completely different person than you were the decade previous. As a 30 year old guy, you don't want the actions of that asshole you were when you were 20 still affecting you, do you?
And beyond that, a Jay & Silent Bob tattoo is the polar opposite of "badass."
