The ink awakens: Get a $100 Star Wars tattoo for May the 4th

via Facebook

You have to do the nerdiest thing you’ve ever done at some point in your life. May as well be today. via Facebook

Despite all the damage George Lucas did to the mythos by introducing things like midichlorians, child actors and Jar Jar Binks to the universe, people still love Star Wars. And why not, it’s great! People also love memes and wordplay, so May the 4th (see it sounds like “May the Force”) has become an unofficial holiday on the internet and in real life. If tweeting “May the 4th be with you” isn’t going far enough for you, might we suggest getting one of the special Star Wars tattoos being offered today only at Tattoo Wonderland. It’s easier than making the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we know that much.

The tattoos you see above can be put into your body with the permanency of frozen carbonite today only at Tattoo Wonderland (1580 McDonald Avenue, Midwood), with prices starting at $100, a fee even the lowliest smuggler on the run from slug gangsters can afford. If you want to get truly weird, there’s an “Ewok This Way” tattoo with Wicket looking hipper than your usual Ewok, but you can also get non-weird Star Wars tattoos that don’t involve nerdy wordplay. Of course, you’re getting a tattoo deal because of nerdy wordplay, so it’s not like there’s a huge leap in deciding to get that one.

The deal only goes until 9pm today though, so don’t dawdle on it too much. If you miss it but then decide you really really wanted one you’re gonna be all:
