“This is a memorial piece for somebody who I loved very greatly in my life. I don’t usually talk to a lot of people about it. Even my closest friends don’t know who this is for. We had a really long deep friendship and then at one point it was a mistake that was made and we never really got to fix it up and then she moved away and then she overdosed in North Carolina and I mean I didn’t get this tattoo for like six years afterwards because I couldn’t deal with it but it helps.”
This is another tattoo in my favorite category ever: friends convincing other friends to get ridiculous nonsensical tattoos. Hilarious and awesome. And awful.
This was the first tattoo for this poor/rad soul. Description from the friend whose idea and drawing it was is below.
“i dont really remember what led up to the idea of swift getting a 20 second drawing i did of ‘a dog going through a divorce’ as a tattoo, but it was certainly assisted by it being 3am and a fair amount of alcohol on his part.. he woke up that next day and said “you know what? fuck it. lets do it.” so less than an hour later i was paying someone $60 to permanently put it on swifts arm. dudes got sad depressed moppy divorced hair, hes unshaven and mopey, and hes got a little suitcase and dufflebag. he just needs to crash on your couch for a week or two. you know what happens when you call a tattoo shop and tell them you “want to get a cartoon dog getting a divorce”, they dont believe youre serious. like 3 places didnt believe us.”
