Permanent Expression of Temporary Feelings

It’s been said that a tattoo is a permanent expression of a temporary feeling. However, Magic: the Gathering is no mere flash in the pan. The game has been going for 20 years and looks stronger than ever. I’ve been playing since 1996, which means I’ve played Magic longer than I haven’t played it. Could it be time for some ink? These people thought so.

Uhhhh, no. I just really love the Punisher.

How best to let people know you’re a lover, not a fighter?





Chas Andres’ next tat?


What the difference a couple hundred bucks can make.

In conclusion, I’m too afraid of having something awful on me forever and I don’t trust anyone else to permanently deface me, and I can’t draw, so I guess no ink for me. Still, some of these are pretty good. Maybe next year.
