Twitter user TheRealMyron got this Netflix tattoo on the side of his stomach and tweeted it to Netflix’s account, and the movie-streaming giant awarded his loyal fandom with a free year of service. A whole year! Keep in mind Netflix wasn’t holding a contest or anything, Myron just got the tattoo because he loves the company and “Netflix is a lifestyle.” Just like swinging. Some other gems from his feed:
Netflix tweeted me retweeted my Tattoo and gave me a free year tonight there is noway you can’t believe in Netflix gang now it’s a movement
@netflix I’m so excited I love Netflix can I get a follow back also
There is so many strangers in my mentions about this Netflix stuff lol they don’t understand the life
@netflix follow me back pleaseeee
huff post said they want to do a story!!!!!!!!!
i just got asked to do a story on web cam i dont think i have a web came here
who has a web cam?
I have a webcam, Myron. Come over and you can do the interview from my place and then you can show me what this lifestyle is all about. I’ve had Netflix for years, but I didn’t know I was part of a MOVEMENT. Also, we should totally get some jackets and hats made with a catchy slogan to celebrate your victory. I’m thinking ‘Netflix For Life’. “But I only got a year.” Yeah….maybe if you got another, even BIGGER one.
Thanks to Big Dave, who’s getting a Ferrari tattoo this weekend. Good luck with that.Related Posts:
In heartwarming news, the infamous ‘world’s worst portrait tattoo‘ has been fixed free of charge by tattoo artist Scott Versago of Empire Ink in Akron, Ohio. Unfortunately, like most things you laugh at on the internet, there was some real sadness behind the story.
I got to tackle the official “#1 worst portrait tattoo in the world” today. I’m sure you’ve all seen it a million times online, as had I. I couldn’t believe my eyes when this guy walked in and showed me this project. I think my jaw literally hit the floor. He went on to tell me the story behind the portrait; He had just married his beautiful wife and not even three months afterwards she was killed in a horrible house fire accident leaving him to raise their three children alone. Shortly after he went to a local tattoo studio to memorialize his wife and was left with this abomination. He later returned to that studio for one more session, thinking that perhaps “he had done something wrong in the healing of the tattoo” and they butchered it even more the second time. Finally, he drove all the way to my studio, Empire Ink, just to meet me and to see what his options were. Touched by his story, I gifted the entire project to him for free. Now he has closure and I have an amazing story to add to my portfolio!
Good lookin’, Scott. I can’t believe that guy walked around with that thing the way it was for so long. Hell, if I’d known the back story I would have organized some sort of “fix the tattoo and sue the artist” fund myself. I’m just happy it’s over. Now let’s all take a moment to be thankful that when we all got black-out drunk and went to the tattoo parlor, we didn’t get anybody’s face.
Thanks to Groman, who told me he got a tattoo he regrets but wouldn’t say what or where. Okay now I have to know.Related Posts:
This is Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia. She let her tattoo artist boyfriend Rouslan Toumaniantz ink his name across her face the first time they met in real life after starting a relationship online. Rouslan must really have a thing for face tattoos because he’s the same dude that was accused (and later acquitted) of tattooing 56 stars on that one girl’s face after she allegedly only asked for three. *bashing face on keyboard* fghnbvfghvf hjhyj rty7hhgffg hvnfghfghbnv I just don’t even know anymore. I really did beat my head on the keyboard to type that though.
The pair – who’d met on an online chat room – say they quickly fell ‘head over heels in love’ and soon after met in Moscow, Russia, where they decided to get married.
‘It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” she said.
The tattoo-mad former art student whose sister is also a tattoo artist added that above her eyebrow he had written All For Love.
‘I know that there are people who are terrified that Lesya has made a rash decision that she’ll regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart rather than the ones long-debated in your mind.
Good call bro. As a matter of fact, ALL my best decisions have been made in an instant with my heart rather than the ones long-debated in my mind. You know why? “Your brain sucks.” It’s pure shit. Hey, at least if these two lovebirds ever break up she won’t have to paint her face to go to an ICP concert.
Hit the jump for a before shot of Lesya and several other afters.Related Posts:

This is a tattoo inked by Pablo of Level Up Tattoo Studio in Great Falls, Montana. Me? I’ve never taken a great fall in Montana, but I did eat shit down the apartment stairs this morning. Thankfully the only person who saw it was this ancient geezer who lives on the floor below me. He asked if I was okay and I was all, ‘Okay?! If that had been you your bones would have disintegrated! WELL — are you going to help me up? Jesus, did they not teach manners in medieval times?’ That’s when he spat and tried to poke me with his cane! Old people these days!
Thanks to Donna, who works at the shop and promised to hook me up with a quality dino tat if I’m ever in Montana and can decide what species I want. Decisions, decisions.Related Posts:
Seen here on the back of a man who looks wider than he is tall, this is a giant God of War themed tattoo inked by Moscow tattoo artist Roman Kuznetsov. I’m not sure who the guy with the actual tattoo is, but he’s definitely not somebody I’d want to get in a fight with at the bar. Psych, I could take him. “WHAT WAS THAT?” Oh nothing, I was just talking about what color fingernail polish I want to get next. What a stupid idiot. “ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ME?” I sure wasn’t, I was talking about….your mom! *prepares to die*
Thanks to Taylor, who has one of those unisex names that makes writing a shoutout harder than it should be.
This is a picture of some dude who decided to get a classic “Darth Vader with flowers” tattoo on the side of his face. Hopefully it’s a cover-up. I’m kidding, hopefully it’s a stick-on. And whether you agree with brobro’s taste in facial tattoos or not, one thing’s for certain: he needs to learn how to shave under his f***ing chin.
Thanks to Mr. Peabody, who had an eyeball tattooed on the back of his head but you can only see it when he shaves. No way — I did the same thing with my pubes! This pecker’s got eyes.
This is a picture of Geekologie reader Glen’s full-back Garbage Pail Kids tattoo. The original Garbage Pail Kids the design came from were named Charred Chad and Fryin’ Ryan, but Glen had the name changed to ‘Orrible Ozzie for his backpiece because he has a son named Ozzie. Good lookin’, Glen. Well, except for the fact it looks more like a Garbage Pale Kid, amirite?! Man, I’m a jerk.
Thanks Glen, and I’m waaaay pastier (almost see-thru) if it makes you feel any better.
This is a recently-inked tattoo by artist/Geekologie Reader Adam M. based on a painting of the same design by Alex Ross (links to picture on Alex’s website). Damn, I didn’t know Batman’s back looked that bad. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a crush on him, it’s just, I dunno, I’m not sure I could shower with him now.
Thanks Adam, remind me to give you a holler when I get my next dino tat (I’m already up to number eight!).
This is a Salvador Dali inspired Star Wars ribcage tattoo conceptualized and inked by DeviantARTist graynd. As you can see, it’s got a drippy Jabba and Death Star in the style of the clocks from Dali’s ‘The Persistence of Memory’, and stick-legged AT-AT and AT-ST from ‘Les Elephants’ and ‘Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening’. Man, that Dali — what a pretty trippy dude, huh? “I like his mustache.” I was just about to say that!
Thanks to Terry, who doesn’t keep a mustache but sometimes grows his beard out in the winter and looks like the f***ing king of all creepers.Related Posts:
HAHA — not so immortal after all, are you, Edward?! Per Geekologie Reader Kylie:
OK, so this guy I used to know recently made a deal with his friend that they would choose each other’s tattoos and they would each get theirs while being blindfolded. He took his blindfold off to see this — Edward, from Twilight! Yikes! So later he had it covered up with RUFIOOOO!
OH HELL YES. I asked my little lady to turn the pictures into an animated gif, but the angles make it look like there’s a colored part in Edward that doesn’t appear in Rufio. Like I said, that’s just the angle. Great, now I kind of want a Rufio tattoo. “BANGARAAAAAANG!” Okay now I f***ing have to have one.
Thanks to Kylie, who obviously knows a good coverup when she sees one (help me bury a body? Also — what did the other guy get?). And to cocoa for making me the gif so I could spend the last ten minutes watching videos of Hook on Youtube. You know, for research.Related Posts:
