it’s marta on my hip.


via the modblog at bmezine comes this tattoo of, yes, your eyes do not deceive you, the MARTA system, apparently on someone’s hip.

i suppose as far as tattoo’s go it’s well done (it was done by chris at liberty tattoo on ponce) i don’t know enough about tattoos to know.

but my real question is who in the world can feel good enough about marta to want to memorialize it on their body?

the closest i know of is a friend of mine who rides marta back and forth to work every day and relishes the experience for the stories of the strange and the psychotic it gives her to retell.

(it wasn’t her by the way. when i forwarded this link to her, her response was, “that marta tattoo is retarded enough to almost be cool.”)

anyway, a marta tattoo. now i’ve seen everything.

h/t to amber at being amber rhea for sending this in via the suggest a story link.

    So I read the comments on the bmezine and the owner of this tattoo mentions that they want to work for MARTA and they also have a tattoo of the powerpoint logo. I’m both repelled and fascinated.

    I encountered this tattoo on Facebook as I attempted to inform my fellow commuters about the free Breeze deadline. The owner seems to be an art student going by “DeKalb Deka.”

    I think it’s cool, in a way.
