Check Out The Radical Tattoo This Young Apple Fan Got In Tribute To Her Uncle [Image]

We’ve got an affinity for great Apple tattoos here at Cult of Mac, but let’s face facts: most of them are pretty bad. But the Apple-themed tattoo we’ve fallen in love with today is a lot better than another hipster giving him or herself a “Think Different” tramp stamp.

Reader Karissa B. wrote us to show off her new Apple tattoo. We already liked it a lot: not only is the retro-style Apple logo nursing a mean mouthful of fangs, but the Pac Man like motif of Cupertino trying to gobble up its Clyde in a fleeing Microsoft logo was funny and whimsical. But it’s the story about what the tattoo means and why Karissa got it that really makes this tattoo shine.

Karissa explained to us that the tattoo was done as a tribute to her uncle Chip Dunbar — a well connected, life-long Apple fan who died exactly five years ago. So not only is this tattoo fun, but it’s actually sweet. Something tells me Uncle Chip would approve.

Thanks for sharing, Karissa!

    I’m not a tramp-stamp fan, but this one is funny and has a good story to back it up. Nice job.

    It looks like it’s on her arm or leg, hence not a tramp stamp. Just an fyi :)

  • martinberoiz

    That’s not a good tattoo.

    That looks horrible. I like macs, and have nothing against tattoos, but if my kid/niece got a tattoo that looked that bad I’d slap the hell out of them. The apple leaf looks more like a stem at that angle, not sure if that was intententional, or just a distortion from her giant cankle… That is on a leg, right?

  • Karissa Bianci

    thats actually my forearm and it’s only distorted because my arm was swollen from just having the tattoo done. :) not a tramp stamp and definitely not a cankle

    Looks like it was designed using MS Paint®
