To commemorate the month of frightfully weird and/or disgusting submissions thus far, I wanted to post this charming tattoo story. You see, last month I received the submission above and knew immediately that I wanted to save it for Fright Fest. A pus-y, infected, poorly-rendered portrait tattoo of a baby’s face obviously fit the bill, not to mention all the little details that make this submission so wonderful: The fact that part of the infected skin looks like hair. The fact that Shelly hasn’t already determined that this thing is larvae bait. The fact that her friends are all urging her to see a doctor while Shelly seemingly continues to scratch her head (and her scabs) and ask, “But does it look infected infected, or just like, kind of infected?” Plus, the expression on that baby’s face looks like a cross between Al Capone and Grover Cleveland (minus the mustache). All in all, I was sold.
But then just a few days later, I received this from the same submitter:

oh yeah, I’m sure his life is extra fairy-dust marvelous. That makes mocking the stories of people who have nowhere to turn to funny. Ignorance is always a load of funny. What do you have against the Occupy Movement anyway?
yes because all the 20 other post i liked or reblooged didnt happen. I posted that because I like sarcastic humor. I have nothing against the occupy stuff, its not at all important to me in fact. I really wish people would stop getting offended over the jokes. They’re just jokes. They arent killing you.
