Why You Shouldn't Get A Tattoo In An Extreme Emotional State

Illustration for article titled Why You Shouldnt Get A Tattoo In An Extreme Emotional State

We don't have any tattoos, but if we were ever to go through with one, it would have been, obviously, after the Cardinals won the World Series last year. One Cardinals fan had the same idea, and, well, considering his experience, we're glad we didn't go through with it.


The day after the St. Louis Cardinals clinched the 2006 World Series, fan Jason Harris went to a local tattoo parlor to permanently memorialize the team's tenth championship. Harris, a 20-year-old college student who had never previously gotten a tattoo, headed for The House of Ink in St. Louis, where he wanted the words "St. Louis Cardinals, World Series Champions, 2006" inked on his back. However, according to a negligence lawsuit Harris just filed, the resulting fist-sized tattoo was marred by errors for which he now wants in excess of $25,000 in damages. Harris's Circuit Court complaint notes that an unnamed tattoo artist "incorrectly spelled words and put the wrong year on Plaintiff's person causing severe damage." In an interview, Harris told TSG that instead of "2006," the year 2000 was inked between his shoulder blades (the New York Yankees won the World Series that year). And the word "World" was misspelled as "Worlb."


Hey, it it could have been worse.
