Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

We’re pressing rewind on the long-gone days of the Walkman with some great tattoos.

Imagine, if you will, a strange parallel world. In this world, everything is exactly as it is in our world, except for one small difference — there was no portable music. In this universe, there are no headphones to jam in your ear canal to block out the sounds of the real world. You must walk to work to a soundtrack of car horns, construction, and the voices, the god damn voices coming out of these other human beings around you. Sartre was not wrong when he told us that other people are hell.

Did you know that you can also use a Walkman to fashion a simple tattoo machine? Truly, the Walkman is a miraculous device. For more cool tattoos of the Walkman, please flip this article to Side B.
