It's unofficial Honey Badger Day here at MTV Clutch. After watching Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu and his LSU teammates get pounded by Alabama, we can't help but think about last year's most popular animal. Naturally, we began wondering how many honey badger tattoos are out there.
We're not sure how many of these six honey badger tattoos are inspired by the ridiculous, hysterical honey badger romp with original narration, but any video with 31,558,853 views is bound to move at least a few people under the gun. The honey badger.
Comedian Tom Sibley created the popular blog Subway Douchery, which makes fun of subway dimwits. Now he lives in subway-deficient Los Angeles and must mock people on the roads as Rubbernecker.
FINALLY! The only thing that was really holding me back from covering my body in ironic tattoos was the inconvenience of actually going to the tattoo parlor. Who wants to deal with all those rowdy drunken sailors or giggling groups of 20-year-old ladies who continue to get tramp stamps for unknown desperate reasons? It was only a matter of time until some genius created a tetanus delivery van!
When having needles burrowed deep into your skin and rolling the proverbial dice with any number of intravenously transferred diseases, you want safety and hygiene to be of the utmost importance. And nothing says, "TOTALLY CLEAN!" like a friggin' van! It's not like windowless white vans have any kind of negative stigma in modern culture. With any luck, vans like this will be as common as ice cream trucks on the Fourth of July and they'll happily usher in the apocalypse.

Hollywood's first installment of Stieg Larsson's wildly popular Millenium trilogy, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," has impressed critics and viewers alike. But what about the actual tattoo? The star of the film Rooney Mara's piercings were real but some light Googling didn't tell us whether the dragon tattoo is legit. There are plenty of girls who do have real things, though, and you can find them below. The back is a popular spot.

It's hard to believe it's been nearly 20 years since Tim Burton's "A Nightmare Before Christmas" captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of moviegoers. Who would have thought animated skeletons and other deformed creatures could be so charming? But the film was unique and it powerfully told a moving story. For evidence of its deep affect on people, look through the following "Nightmare" tattoos, only 15 of many more.

Ho Ho Ho! Your innocence is gone and Santa is not real but the spirit of Christmas remains. By that, we mean that it's always fun to help the less fortunate, gobble down food with family, dabble in consumerism and getting boozy with old friends--in approximately that order. Some people really catch the spirit of the season, the kind of people who get Jolly Old Saint Nicholas tattoos. Some picture the plump, time-defying fellow from the North during happier times; others, like the pair above, not so much. Check it out.
Long hailed as a symbol of wintertime purity, the snowman community is not without depraved miscreants. Yes, evil pervades everything, even inanimate, buttoned flakes from the sky, built up by children. Some snowmen are psychotic reindeer killers, others terrify innocents and some are drug addicts. Who would get a tattoo of such a thing? A lot of people, it turns out.

The story about a lawsuit involving a woman victimized by her ex-boyfriend's revenge for her cheating, in which the tattooist boyfriend inked a giant, steaming, fly-covered, swirly pile of turd, is total crap. The Smoking Gun sniffed out the hoax after searching records for the lawsuit and came up empty. The tattoo/photograph in question actually surfaced 18 months ago, but only recently blew up when multiple outlets reported that Rossie Brovent from Dayton, Ohio, who wanted a scene from the Narnia trilogy, sued for $100,000 when she discovered the large potty animal.
Interestingly, TSG doesn't dispute the existence of the tattoo itself. So somewhere out there, "Rossie Brevent" might actually be walking around with one big doodie on her backside. Now that I've satisfied my personal dream of writing a story with the words "turd," "crap," "potty animal," "poo" and "doodie," check out four more stories with bogus tattoo claims.
Time to get meta! But first, a step inside the world of blogging. Sometimes we create lists rooted in current events, like the 15 best rap-staches because November was "Movember." Other times we make stuff based on dark, lingering thoughts, such as 33 words for "ladyflower" that come from kids' TV. Most of those ideas don't see the light of day, and they shouldn't.
When we looked back at end of the year at all the cool, silly, idiotic, clever things we've done, we decided--hey, why not put them all together and effectively recycle them into one big post?! So that's exactly what we've done. Check out 30 of our best of 2011 lists below.
For those of you with tattoos, or those considering them, you know how difficult it is to articulate the tattoo image in your head to the artist. You ask the artist for a Chinese dragon, thinking he'll draw you something badass, and he comes up with Mushu from "Mulan." A similar situation happened to entrepreneur Cristin Davis.
"I asked for a devil pig and an angel pig," David tells MTV Clutch. "I go to my friend's house and he drew a cartoon pig with a pitchfork. I just wanted a real looking pig with horns or something."
This sparked his idea for Interactive Tattoo, a software program he created housing artwork and artist portfolios in one user-friendly space. The customer can choose aspects of each image to create a unique tattoo while quickly and easily conveying their ideas to the artist.
If you've made it here, there's probably a special place in your heart for the '80s--that strange, exciting, coke-addled decade between the '70s and '90s. People who can remember have great memories of the '80s and rightfully so: The decade produced plenty of awesome music, movies, fashion and so on. Sure, some styles and tunes are regrettable, but every decade has its flaws. Time marches on and new ideas grip people. Memories fade, but tattoos endure longer. Check out 25 ink tributes to some of the greatest stars of the '80s.
