Kimye Finally Getting Tattoos? Someone Else Already Did!

Kimye is at war! No, we’re not talking about a small 3rd world nation embroiled in civil war, we’re talking about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West arguing with each other, which is way worse in a completely untrue sort of way. What are they fighting about? Well tattoos of course! Why else would we be talking about it folks? Come on, get with the program! Anyhow, pop culture’s prime power couple is reportedly having some turmoil over some ink that one of them wants and the other doesn’t. Reports state that Kanye approached his baby’s mother about getting a “K” on each of their wrists…because you know, it’s the first letter of both of their first names…very creative! Kim initially agreed to the point that Kanye lined up an appointment with his favorite tattoo artist, but when they got there she got cold feet. Kanye sees this as an an insult, and they’ve now been at odds about it for a bit. We’d like to think that a fight over a tattoo that neither person has, especially when you consider that one of the people doesn’t have any ink to begin with, wouldn’t last too long. However, celebrities are insane, and a break-up over a tattoo wouldn’t even be on the list of craziest things that one of them has ever done. This isn’t the first time the two have considered getting ink together, so maybe it’s a bigger issue than it seems. We’ll keep an eye on this situation folks, and if it leads to two people who have a baby (North West) breaking up, we’ll tell you all about the insanity.kanye-west-fan-tattoo-Kimye-Over

Also, in other Kimye tattoo news, and in other insanity news for that matter: some borderline crazy (we’re being really nice with our use of the word “borderline”) Kanye West fan decided to show her feelings about the happy couple with a tattoo! The “Kimye Over” ink that sits on the back of a woman who legally changed her name to Kanyaresa West pretty much speaks for itself…in the same way that sending someone a teddy bear with the head cut off “speaks for itself”. She needs laser treatments and Kanye needs a restraining order!

 

Rick Pitino Gets Inked In The Name Of Victory

 Okay all you athletes out there, how many of you have a favorite coach from your playing days? A coach who was so inspiring, so dedicated, so gung-ho that he or she made every game feel like it was the most important game of your life? Yeah well prepare to be less impressed, because Rick Pitino just one upped everyone.

In February of 2013, when his Louisville Cardinals Basketball Team (NCAA Division 1) sat at a less than impressive 7-4 in the Big East Division, and on the heels of a five overtime loss to Notre Dame, Pitino decided to make the kind of promise that’s usually reserved for movies starring Gene Hackman or Paul Newman. Pitino told his team that if they battled back into the mix and somehow won themselves a National Championship he would get a tattoo. This wouldn’t mean a thing if he looked like us, but considering the fact that he’s almost a senior citizen and doesn’t appear to have any other ink, it’s a pretty big claim. Well it worked, because his team took home the biggest prize in college basketball a couple of months later, and like a man of his word, Pitino hit the tattoo parlor. Here’s where the two-time national champion and former coach of the NBA’s New York Knicks really impressed us even more. Most people wouldn’t have gone through with the promise, they would’ve said that it was done for motivation and that since it worked, it could end there. However, Pitino not only got the ink in a timely manner, but he got a big ole’ honker of a first tat! He didn’t wuss out and get something tiny, no, he got a “L, 2013 National Champions, 35-5” piece that covers most of his left shoulder blade; he even got color! So color us impressed Rick.

Now some of the more annoying people in the media have already said that Pitino is setting a poor precedent for coaching behavior, and that his actions will lead to a ton of coaches making big crazy promises to inspire their teams. Well…ummmmmm…who cares? He made a big claim and backed it up, and in the process showed a bunch of kids that not everything adults tell them is a lie or an empty promise, and if this leads to coaches doing crazy things to inspire their teams then great. Sports in America have become often jaded and devoid of true excitement, so if things happen to get a little more interesting because of this, then we’re even more impressed with Rick Pitino’s actions. Tat on Rick!
