Facebook Fan Gets Sleeve Tattoo of Online Friends

Facebook fandom reaches a new high ... Or low ... You decide.

Odds are that we all know at least one person whom we'd describe as "obsessed" with Facebook. However, they're probably not as devoted to the site as this young woman, who had 152 profile pictures of friends tattooed across her arm.

The video is from YouTube user "susyj87"; not much information is available about her, other than the fact that she lives in the Netherlands. Exactly how long the tattoo took to complete isn't entirely clear, either. The video starts off showing the initial work that was done for preparation, and then shows off the finished work "Two Weeks Later."

On one hand, the detail work certainly looks impressive enough; this could have gone much worse if the artist hadn't been as talented as she is (seriously, check out Failbook for examples of how badly this could have gone). That said, the tattoo seems like something susyj87 didn't think out in advance. After all, what happens if she has a falling out with these friends or winds up with some new ones whom she wants to add to the tattoo (theoretically, she could have her other arm covered, but it seems like it'd take a while to accumulate enough good friends to do another sleeve)?

Hopefully susyj87 stays friends with these folks a while, because she's gonna be stuck with their faces on her arm for a long time.

Thats one tattoo that will most likely be looked back upon and regretted.

That's stupid. Facebook related tattoos are a terrible, gimmicky idea. The fact it was of pictures of her friend sounded like a somewhat redeeming part at first, but no one has 152 real friends. There is no way that many people mean enough to you to warrant a permanent place on your arm.

Ha. Cool.

Hope they enjoy it.

Hey it's better than a tribal.

And I quote:

"Fuck everything about this."

Definitely. Facebook is relatively new, we have years of bad ideas yet to come, probably worse than this one.

Edit: Many people are commenting that it's fake, I don't know much about tattoos so I can't be sure who's right.

152 friends, and NOT ONE told her this was a bad idea. Sure they're friends? Also, here's someone guaranteed never to have an important job.

That sounds like the worst idea ever, and someone actually did it? Wow...

But what happens if you gotta defriend somebody and you get a new friend?!?!?!?!

Bravo! I am quite a fan of terrible and/or poorly thought out tattoos,but this is a new one for me. At least getting Xes through some of the faces at a later date will likely be cheap.

I could understand one or two really good real life friends, and maybe put it higher up on your arm. Otherwise, very stupid, she will regret it.

What happens if some of them change their profile image?

I really want her to lose just 1 of those friends.

easy, 10 bucks and a visit to your local tattoo parlor and its fixed XD

Jeez. Why not just get Zuckerberg's ass tattooed on her face. At least then people who mistake what it is will still draw the same conclusion.

Might be personal preference, but I don't consider Facebook friends to be real friends.

Actually I want all of her friends to change their profile pictures now

Facebook status update: Ok. I just got all of you tattooed onto me. Now nobody is allowed to change their avatar pic... EVAR!

DAMN NINJA!

Edit: Good thing this wasn't myspace with friend rankings.

It's a shame she can't just put an X over the friends she doesn't like anymore... because what if they make up?!

The funniest part about this article is the analysis. Will she regret it? Is it cool or stupid? Funny quip!

The only thing need be said is this: "attention whore seeks attention, succeeds". Thanks for contributing to the idiocy that defines our species

Well. It would be hilarious if all the people featured in the tattoo agreed on changing their profile pictures all together very soon.

People saying it's a bad idea because facebook is a temporary thing, it's not really about facebook is it? It's not like she's had the logo done or anything. It's just a load of pictures of her friends.

Why do I feel ashamed of myself just from her being from the same country?

I so wish there was a "like" option for this comment.

CHRIST that takes one hell of a good artist.

*Checks* Nope, not on there. Don't care.

I suppose the other arm will be reserved for Twitter followers. You cover one arm with a horrible decision, you may as well do the other one.

It's clearly not so much about commemorating her 152 bestest pals as it is about having a sleeve made completely of profile pictures. I don't care for tattoos, but this is actually pretty neat.

Some people's faces are going to get misshapen in the future.

I will laugh when she has a fight with a lot of those friends xD

I have serious issues with Facebook, but I have to admit that's a clever Tattoo design.

hehe unfriending someone will suck for her now.

bleachigo10:

maybe she can get tumblr followers on one leg and myspace on the other?

just a very shortsighted tattoo in my mind...in a couple years it'll stop being funny and/or "cool" (that term is used very loosely here) and will in all odds end up being just embarrassing

They're probably both vain and bad friends. Although I'm not sure I'll ever understand the appeal of having your face tattooed on someone else's arm.. 0.o

(As in, you actually wanting them to do it. Memorial tattoos, I completely understand.)

Bravo to the artist for doing what looks like a pretty decent job and suckering someone out of their money. As for the girl, well as others have said she will have a constant reminder of how stupid she was(still is?) everyday she wakes up.

I feel your pain. I really thought people were better than this.
