Log in to Reply matt says: June 16, 2010 at 7:36 am while the ink is well done. why an upside down cross? and why as there? both ruin it for me Log in to Reply Scott Mason says: June 16, 2010 at 9:40 am If it was turned over and in a much better spot, it would be an AWESOME tattoo!! Might even have to do it myself. This one however, upside down and lower back? Those simple two decision make this tattoo absolutely horrible. Log in to Reply Reid says: June 16, 2010 at 9:41 am I will agree that the photo could have at least been cropped so we could not see the butt crack. The ink itself looks great but I am not sure what bacon has to do with an upside down cross? Log in to Reply Tara says: June 16, 2010 at 9:44 am I feel conflicted. A) Yay blasphemy! B) Boo, butcrack… C) OMG BACON D) Inedible, tattoo-flavored bacon… It’s a mix of emotions I’m not entirely comfortable with.

Log in to Reply dk says: June 16, 2010 at 10:39 am Say no to crack. Log in to Reply scupper says: June 16, 2010 at 11:43 am I think it’s a fake tattoo. Why does everyone care about the ‘crack’ so much? Anyway. It must be a fake rub-on tattoo. If it absolutely isn’t, all I can say is that this dude is completely mental.

Seriously, though…I did NOT need to see that guy’s crack. Log in to Reply Anonymous says: June 17, 2010 at 2:54 pm Reid: I think the post Tara made below yours spells it out. Just as there’s geeks out there that love bacon (see http://stuffgeekslove.wordpress.com/2009/03/17/bacon/ ), there are geeks that love being jerks to religious folk (see http://stuffgeekslove.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/offensive-humor/ ). I’m guessing Tara (and the guy who got that tatoo) are the types who like to get in the face of religious people and go “I JUST PISSED ON UR JESUS WHERES UR GOD NOW OLOLOL?!!” Or, at least, the internet equivalent of it.

No wonder he converted from Judaism, as if avoiding circumcision weren’t a good enough reason.

From TV says: June 18, 2010 at 3:51 pm Dude, the H.O.G. in Rochester is awesome. And that’s some sweet back bacon. And props to Johnny for the Pig-trine cross. That’s awesome. That tat definitely looks real too, with his back being shaved and it looks like he has tattoo goo on there. Thanks for repping Rochester with your bacon love, dude!

Log in to Reply Raven says: June 24, 2010 at 1:05 pm Upside down so her boyfriend can enjoy the tattoo whilst she is otherwise “occupied”. Log in to Reply CynicTheHedgehog says: June 25, 2010 at 8:41 am I’ve heard of pork butt, but this is ridiculous! Makes me wonder if his girlfriend has a tattoo of eggs. Log in to Reply Pete says: June 25, 2010 at 4:25 pm Nobody needs to be upset by this. For centuries, Christians have used the inverted cross as a symbol of humility and of their (our) unworthiness of the cross as well Christ’s sacrifice/death upon the cross. Even the chair that the pope sits on in the vatican has carvings of inverted crosses upon it. There have been Christians in history that have been put to death by crucifixion, and have requested to be crucified upside down, again, as a symbol of humility and their (our) unworthiness of the cross and Christ’s sacrifice/death upon the cross. Idiots like Anton LaVey have attempted to lend notoriety and popularize the image of the inverted cross as a symbol that stands in defiance and opposition to the cross. While these types of people are busy wasting their time trying to force their own meaning on this image, they’re really unwittingly aligning themselves with their unworthiness of the cross and Christ himself by using this symbol. QED, anti-Christians! You just got owned by the symbol you thought stood for your false beliefs. So then, how should this tattoo really be interpreted? This guy has more going on than meets the eye. By making a cross out of bacon, he has aligned the awesome power of bacon with the awesomeness of Jesus Christ, which is appropriate considering the awesomeness of bacon and the fact that the pig (and therefore bacon) was created through Christ. By inverting said bacon cross, this man is showing humility and deference to the power and awesomeness of bacon, as well as his (our) unworthiness of all things bacon. The Lord, in his infinite mercy and grace, stills allows us the immeasurable pleasure provided by the glory of bacony goodness even though we are unworthy of the king of meats (and food, for that matter).

Log in to Reply Nekrobutcher says: September 17, 2010 at 5:15 am I give mental “I AGREE! hug” to Tara. Log in to Reply vanessa says: September 22, 2010 at 11:28 am I’m not ready for something that permanent, so I went looking for bacon t-shirts instead (I know, what a wimp!). I found this t-shirt for the underrepresented anti-drug/pro-bacon party, the pig kind of freaks me out but I appreciate the message: http://villainsandvaudevillians.com/bringing-home-the-bacon/ Log in to Reply darla says: February 5, 2011 at 1:44 am ohhh rochester, only you.
