As a bro with two tattoos that I’m pretty sure no one else on Earth would consider getting and who is considering adding Picasso’s line drawing of a dachshund to the collection, I feel like I am disqualified to weigh in on this particular topic. So I’ll turn it over to you guys — Is there possibly a good reason to get a tattoo that says “I slept with Shaq” tattoo on your forehead?
My guess is that the answer is no, because duh, but maybe you’ll change your mind after reading the explanation behind why Los Angeles DJ David “Tattoo” Gonzalez (get it?) has that inked on his dome. From Los Angeles Weekly:
[The] tattoo across his forehead truly seals his gonzo credentials. Removing his Raiders cap, he displays it, sprawled in oddly formal cursive: “I Slept With Shaq.” He got the ink during a contest for Lakers NBA Finals tickets in 2001, a challenge presented by Power morning-show DJ Big Boy. Gonzalez showed the handiwork to Shaq — who was impressed — and Big Boy soon gave him a job at the station.
On one hand, this dude got tickets to the 2001 NBA Finals, props from Shaq and a job just from getting four words tattooed on his forehead, which is a pretty good return on investment. On the other hand, he has a tattoo that says “I slept with Shaq” on his face for the rest of his life.
Again, I’m pretty strongly in the “No, this is not a good idea” camp, but maybe I am being too close-minded about having maybe the worst tattoo ever on your face. A spirited defense of this life choice would be appreciated, so let’s hear your best arguments in the comments.
