We’re looking at the sordid history of the coconut and some cool coconut tattoos

Summer’s here, in case you couldn’t tell from all the articles we’ve been writing that start with the phrase “Summer’s here.” And if you disregard what we said in those articles, this can mean only one thing – it’s the time of year when we’re drinking shit out of coconuts. So why not hack open one of these fuzzy tree testicles, fill it with your favorite liquids, and check out some coconut tattoos?

The coconut found its way to America during the Summer of Love. A generation of American youth experimented with coconuts in attempts to expand their consciousness. In the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, coconuts were a sort of status symbol, commonly enjoyed at Hollywood parties, in judge’s chambers, and boardroom meetings.

Some of these coconut tattoos are just coco-nuts. If there’s a better way to end this article, we don’t know what it is. Have a sweet summer!
