    Echidna Tattoo Inspiration – Littered With Garbage

    Did you know? The echidna is named after a half mammal, half snake creature in Greek mythology. Echidnas are one of only two monotremes – platypus being the other – in the world, and both are found here in Australia. Monotremes are special as they’re mammals which lay eggs. What makes an echidna even more unique is that the females have a pouch to hold their young just like marsupials. Echidnas are rather elusive as you don’t often come across them compared to other Australian wildlife. The closest most Australians get to an echidna (aside from zoos or wildlife parks) is on the front of the five-cent coin. Baby echidnas…

    Top 5 Grilled Cheese Sandwich Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Who would think that something simple as a toasted sandwich of bread and cheese could be so delicious? We can only imagine that millions of grilled cheeses are consumed each year. While the number of grilled cheese tattoos doesn’t even come close to that number, they do exist. A grilled cheese tattoo could be so incredibly deeply personal, or as simple as it being one of your favourite foods. One thing to remember is that the concept behind a piece doesn’t have to dictate the style – you also have a choice to blend the new tattoo with existing pieces or be select a completely new style.

    Top 8 Bubble O’Bill Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    What we grew up believing to be a classic Australian ice cream actually turns out to be American. Bubble O’Bills were first produced in the US in 1985 and also available in the UK, but are now only sold in Australia and New Zealand. Bubble O’Bill is a pun on Buffalo Bill, an old west figure which explains his cowboy hate, gumball for a nose, and a hole in the hat to represent a gunshot. Apparently the ice cream was originally to be called Wubble O’ William – we kind of love this silly name but understand why it was changed. Opening up the packaging, the ice cream never looked…

    ‘The Nanny’ Tattoo Inspiration – Littered With Garbage

    Created by and starring Fran Drescher, The Nanny premiered in 1993 and ran for a total of 6 seasons and 146 episodes until the finale in 1999. Fran Fine went from a recently fired (and broken up with) bridal shop employee in Flushing, Queens to the nanny of three children in Manhattan – remember a time when you didn’t require a lifetime’s worth of experience to get a job? Despite Fran being the main character, it was always the interactions and insults exchanged between Niles and CC that we were a fan of; you can find compilations of these on YouTube. The Nanny has seen several foreign adaptations – maybe…

    Top 5 Tiny Rick Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Tiny Rick’s one and only appearance on Rick and Morty was “Big Trouble in Little Sanchez” (Season 2 – Episode 7). For someone so small he certainly made a big impact in the fandom and with tattoo collectors alike. In order to find a vampire at Summer and Morty’s school, Rick Sanchez transferred his consciousness into the body of a 14-year-old clone. He instantly gained popularity within the student group. Rick ran into issues when the brain in the clone didn’t want adult Rick’s consciousness to leave. Tiny Rick attempted to destroy Rick’s body, but Summer and Morty came to the rescue for once. Once his consciousness was returned, Rick…

    Spoopy Candy Heart Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    If you prefer spooky over sweet sentiments then a spoopy candy heart could be right for you. Keep the traditional shape of Sweethearts (US) or Love Hearts (UK) confectionery but have fun with the theme, the word and other decorative elements to perfectly suit your cold, dead heart. For something which is a rather simple 3D heart shape, this leaves you with much to think about. Your candy heart tattoo can be inspired by a horror film, or have more traditional Halloween elements such as spider webs, bats, ghosts, or placed alongside other Halloween treats like candy corn. You could splatter the hearts with blood or ink glitter, and have…
