Today’s Tatt Tuesday features Bub and Bob from Bubble Bobble! It’s one of my favorite arcade games and they’re adooooorable!
One time I was hanging out at Bottom of the Hill and a fairly cute dude hit on me for about half an hour, and then he goes, “What’s that tattoo on your leg?” So I tell him that it’s from Bubble Bobble and he asks if I even play video games. At which point I responded, “No, I got the tattoo because dudes are just really attracted to bubble dragons,” and walked off.
I was born and raised in Georgia, and lived there until I was 25. After that, I decided that video games sounded like a way more fun job than working at a PR agency and I packed up all my stuff into a minivan and embarked on a cross country road trip to my new home in San Francisco.
Side note: The crazy foot brusies and scrapes I’m rocking in this photo is from sliding down a hallway on my knees. Wear socks when you do that.
Guys, I love Twin Peaks. That is why it’s only fitting that I got the same tattoo that was left on the Log Lady after she was abducted. One day I’ll meet a nice boy with Col. Briggs’ tattoo and we will be married.
Fun fact: This is the only tattoo I’ve gotten in San Francisco.
Not fun fact: Twin Peaks, the neighborhood in SF, has nothing to do with Twin Peaks the TV show. Don’t get excited about that.
