The golden arches of McDonald’s are ingrained in the brains of nearly everyone in the world. This is because they look like breasts and the design was deliberately kept for this reason. No, really. Louis Cheskin, a design consultant hired by McDonald’s in the 1960s, argued that the arches represent “Mother McDonald’s breasts,” and held a deep Freudian appeal to consumers. And we’ve all been happily suckling at these teets our whole lives. In honor of the subconscious hold the brand has on all of us, we’re bringing you some McDonald’s tattoos.

Is it any wonder some of them would allow their dopamine and cholesterol-addled brains to come to the decision that a McDonald’s tattoo is the right choice. Let’s take a gander at the results of some of these great decisions as we gaze lovingly at some McDonald’s tattoos.
Don’t these McDonald’s tattoos make you want to run out and enjoy about 3,000 calories of artery-clogging goodness? We say go for it. Death is already lurking at every corner, why not actively invite him into your life?
