We Tip Our Hats (& Pull Down Our Pants a Bit) to These Plumber Tattoos

Plumbing can certainly be a crappy job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

It’s very sad that none of us ever take the time to reflect on how blessed we are that we have systems in place to immediately transport our shit and piss far away from us. Indoor plumbing is something that the human race has taken for granted for centuries and today we’d like to pay our sincerest respects to those who make it all work – plumbers. If there was ever a Tattoodo article to read on the toilet, it’s this one. So sit back, relax, and check out some unflushable plumber tattoos.

Plumbing can trace its roots to the Roman Empire. You see, the Latin word for lead is plumbum and back in Roman times lead was the material of choice for making drain pipes and baths. Those who worked with lead became known as plumbers. It was only after medieval times that the word took on a specificity relating to water.

Today, plumbing is a highly skilled trade. The list of things a plumber has to deal with and be aware of is too vast to go into here, but if you’re still on the toilet by the time you’re done with this article, check out the Wikipedia entry on plumbers. It even includes a list of notable plumbers, none of whom we had ever heard of, besides Super Mario.

Though plumbing might not seem like the most attractive profession, it nevertheless takes a certain degree of skill and pride in one’s work. Some plumbers have taken this pride to the next level by getting a plumber tattoo. Sit back and revel in the glory of plumbers — their pride, their integrity – with these beautiful plumber tattoos.

We’d like to give our sincere thanks to all the plumbers throughout the world who ensure that our excrement ends up somewhere that isn’t piled in a corner in our homes. These plumber tattoos are our salute to those working in one of the dirtiest professions. Thanks so much, plumbers of the world. You are always in our thoughts.
