Kim Jong Il Tattoo
Reading the news of Kim Jong Il's passing this morning, I wondered if The Supreme Leader had already been immortalized on skin. And that wonder lasted less than a minute when Google pulled up this stop motion video of a Jong portrait being created by Cody Brigan of Ghost Dog Tattoo in Cloquet, Minnesota.
I then pondered that oft-asked question when viewing a tribute to a dictator of divine birth: Why? I found the answer on Deviant Art, of course. There, Cody explains that he wanted to attempt a portrait (he's only been tattooing since last year), so he offered a free tattoo to the client, but on the condition that he could tattoo whatever he wanted. And there ya go.
But this isn't the only Il ode. Google served up another portrait as well. Sadly, it didn't yield the same results for Vaclav Havel.
