Bulldozer Tattoos and the Indomitable Spirit of Marvin Heemeyer

Tattoo Ideas2 min Read

Sometimes a reasonable man must do unreasonable things.

A small town/A mountain town/60 miles west of Denver/The city of Granby had no idea/they fucked with the wrong guy

By this point, Marvin Heemeyer had been pushed too far. He decided to take matters into his own hands by modifying his bulldozer into an armored tank and setting his sights on those who had wronged him. He covered the machine in a thick armor of concrete and steel. He fitted the dashboard with two monitors hooked up to external video cameras covered by a three inch sheet of bulletproof plastic. He installed air conditioning to keep himself cool and compressed air nozzles to clear dirt from the cameras. After a year and a half of work, Marvin’s time had come.

We hope the story of Marvin Heemeyer stays with you all for the rest of your lives. Think of him when the chips are stacked against you and remember that one man can always make a difference.
