Recently, I spent 10 days in Japan. The trip was glorious and I had a blast, but it came with one string attached. You see, Japan doesn’t really have any pot. Well, there is pot, but you really need some good connections and deep pockets as a gram of the stuff can run upwards of $100. So, I made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of travel and essentially spent a week and a half being straight edge. Sobriety is a funny thing, and after a few days of it, I immediately felt superior to everyone else in my life. I thought perhaps the best way to capture this feeling forever would be by getting a straight edge tattoo.
As I don’t really like alcohol, it was very easy to immerse myself in this new way of life while I was in Japan. My mind felt sharp and clear. I started being able to solve simple math problems in my head. However, I still look hella baked in every photo taken of me during this time.
Don’t these awesome straight edge tattoos just make you want to listen to Earth Crisis? Yeah, us neither.
