Given a four-day weekend and no real social life to speak of, I spent my Fourth of July holiday doing what any true-blooded American would – watching the first three Jackass films. While this brought me near overdose-levels of joy, it also left me very sad because it was my first viewing of the films since the tragic death of Ryan Dunn. I’m not the only one with a Random Hero-shaped hole in my heart, and some of the more extreme Jackass fans out there have taken it upon themselves to pay tribute to the late, great Dunn with some totally awesome Ryan Dunn tattoos.
It was through Jackass that Dunn and his friends attained worldwide stardom. Dunn was a stalwart of the series, often doing the stunts that everyone else refused to do — including famously inserting a toy car into his anus and proceeding to get an x-ray — with seemingly no complaints. This attitude earned him the nickname Random Hero during his CKY days.
These Ryan Dunn tattoos are all touching tributes to a star that burned out way before his time. If you need me, I’ll be on my couch with my CKY DVD boxset and a couple boxes of tissues.
