Sometimes, it can get tricky writing an article about a specific body part. There’s always that first creative hurdle of trying to figure out what to say about just one area of human anatomy. Sometimes, you just sit down and start typing and hope something comes to you, even though you don’t know what sentence is possibly going to come next.
Such was the case when the assignment for an article about shoulder tattoos fell onto my desk -- or should I say on my shoulders?
I’m just going to say it – shoulders are fucking awesome. Featuring advanced articulation that lends itself to a wide variety of action poses, shoulders are truly the gateway to the arms. If it weren’t for our shoulders, we’d live a life with arms at our side. And just try shrugging without moving your shoulders. No, go do it in front of a mirror. You look stupid.
(Editor’s note: are you just trying to make fun of my niece who was born without shoulders again? I didn’t appreciate it when you laughed in my face when I told you about it last month, and I don’t appreciate it now.)
In honor of the shoulder, we’ve gathered up some rad pictures of awesome shoulder tattoos that show just how fucking pimped out you can make this particular joint. So, join us in raising your arms high in the air, just because you can, and check em out.
(Editor’s note: you know my niece can’t raise her arms in the air and how hard it is for my entire family. I really wish you could be more sensitive.)
these some wonderful shoulder tattoos? Just be thankful you have
shoulders and all the amazing privileges of motion that come with them,
unlike my editor Charlie’s freak of a niece.
(Editor’s note: Fuck you, dude.)
