Astronaut Tattoos Make Us Want To Get the Hell Off of This Planet

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

Going into space is an impossible dream for most of us, and we hate that

This world seems to be an awful place that gets worse every day, all it takes is a quick glance at the news  to confirm this suspicion. It’s enough to make a guy want to just leave this planet. Sadly, this is such a costly option at present that it seems like we are all firmly stuck on Earth. There are a select few who get to live this dream, albeit temporarily. Today, in honor of our frustrations with being imprisoned on this stupid planet, we’re taking a look at some astronaut tattoos.

Ever since Yuri Gagarin left the confines of this terrestrial sphere back in 1961, the dream of going offworld has been strong. However, only 535 individuals have been able to follow in his footsteps, while the countless billions of us who haven’t been so fortunate seethe with envy.

Becoming an astronaut is, at present, a huge pain in the ass. There’s just so much you have to go through, namely the government. Thousands have chased the dream wholeheartedly, and the majority have been left in the dust.

It used to be that our astronauts were heroes, but these day we just see them as sons of bitches who think they’re better than us. And don’t even get us started on all the astronaut discounts they enjoy when they return to earth. It’s such bullshit that they get 15 percent off at Denny’s while we’re stuck paying full price like a bunch of goddamn schmucks.

Even though we hate them for living our unattainable dreams, astronauts do make for pretty rad tattoos. Today we’ve got some astronaut tattoos for your enjoyment. Even though they just make the itch to escape the gravity of this stinking planet more intense, you have to admit that they look pretty cool.

If these astronaut tattoos just make you want to go into space even more than before, well, we honestly don’t have any good suggestions as to how exactly to remedy this. All we know is that Elon Musk better hurry the fuck up and get us to Mars because this planet is played out.
