Fake tattoo sleeves
Whether or not you like the way tattoos look, it takes some fortitude to sit for twenty or thirty hours while a dude drills into your skin with a needle. Your skin leaks fluid and it’s painful and itchy and you have to keep it clean and colored scabs fall off, and the scabs look like fruity pebbles. It’s hard, and it’s gross, and it proves you can endure pain for the reward of a drawing on your body.
Wearing two spandex cylinders printed with tattoo art on your arms to pretend you have real tattoo sleeves is ALMOST as cool as all of that, though.
