Well, today’s the day we’ve all been waiting for — it’s the first day of spring! This means winter is finally over, and we can finally get out and enjoy some sun. It’s time to kick back, watch the flowers grow, and get our collective pale ass to the beach. Wait, it snowed again this weekend and it’s still in the mid 40s? Fuck.
I suppose this leaves us with no option other than to whittle down the days as we run out the clock on winter’s icy grip.
But we can dream of the days ahead, filled with warmer weather and warmer hearts. Springtime is a magical time of year, a time of rebirth. The world around us comes to life as flowers bloom, bears wake up from hibernation, and the number of vasectomies performed sees a noticeable uptick.
This is the world we desperately crave after endless months of seasonal affective disorder. We yearn for the days when we can wear shorts and t-shirts, so as to show off our rad tattoos. We are sick of layering our clothing and trudging through snow. We demand springtime. It seems that for whatever reason, god just isn’t listening to us this year.
While we wait out the rest of this bullshit winter, here are some spring-inspired tattoos of blossoming flowers and bustling animals to help warm our hearts. Just keep in mind the magic is just around the corner, and we’re sure you’ll start to feel warmer inside.
Don’t these tattoos help take your mind off the beautiful weather you’re currently being denied? That is unless you’re part of our large Brazilian readership, in which case I hate you for no other reason than your country’s superior climate and policy regarding harboring clones of Hitler.
