Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

Plumbing can certainly be a crappy job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

It’s very sad that none of us ever take the time to reflect on how blessed we are that we have systems in place to immediately transport our shit and piss far away from us. Indoor plumbing is something that the human race has taken for granted for centuries and today we’d like to pay our sincerest respects to those who make it all work – plumbers. If there was ever a Tattoodo article to read on the toilet, it’s this one. So sit back, relax, and check out some unflushable plumber tattoos.

Today, plumbing is a highly skilled trade. The list of things a plumber has to deal with and be aware of is too vast to go into here, but if you’re still on the toilet by the time you’re done with this article, check out the Wikipedia entry on plumbers. It even includes a list of notable plumbers, none of whom we had ever heard of, besides Super Mario.

We’d like to give our sincere thanks to all the plumbers throughout the world who ensure that our excrement ends up somewhere that isn’t piled in a corner in our homes. These plumber tattoos are our salute to those working in one of the dirtiest professions. Thanks so much, plumbers of the world. You are always in our thoughts.
