Nirvana formed in 1987 and produced three albums before their front man joined the 27 Club. Even after all these years the band continues to find new fans – some of the tattoos below are on people who were either small children or not even born prior to 1994. There may only be seven years of photographs, and three albums of song lyrics and album covers, but there’s still plenty to inspire a tattoo. Discover what Kurt or Nirvana means…

    Nugget the Honey Bear Tattoo Inspiration – Littered With Garbage

    Impractical Jokers, Sal Vulcano and Brian Quinn, introduced their listeners to the character of Nugget the Honey Bear on episode seven of their What Say You? podcast way back in 2013. After telling a story about a bear-shaped bottle of honey and the TSA, it led them to discovering the history behind the design and name of the honey bear. From there it descended into giving Nugget a voice, a rather disturbing personality and sick sense of humour. Click here to listen to the podcast. Basically, Dutch Gold Honey founders, Ralph and Luella Gambler came up with the idea of the squeezable honey bear packaging in 1957. However, it wasn’t…

    Top 25 Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Aaahh!!! Real Monsters premiered 25 years ago on Nickelodeon this October, and after 4 seasons (consisting of 52 episodes) the final episode aired in December 1997. Set under a city dump in New York City, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters follows Ickis, Oblina and Krumm as they attend school where they are learning the art of frightening humans; needless to say, their school assignments were far more thrilling than anything I had to complete at primary school. If it’s been a while since you’ve watched Aaahh!!! Real Monsters – or you’re completely unaware of the show’s existence – think of it as a gross and nasty predecessor to Monsters, Inc. given the…

    Popples Tattoo Inspiration – Littered With Garbage

    We’ll admit that we believed that we had no knowledge of Popples prior to beginning research for Kawaii Month. Upon looking further into these toys, we realised that we actually owned one, and may even still have it stored somewhere.

Produced by the same company behind the likes of the Care Bears, Popples were described as a type of marsupial teddy bear. A unique feature of Popples was the pouch on their back that enabled the plush toys to be rolled into the pouch and to…

    Top 10 Budgerigar Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Budgerigars are an Australian parrot species that are found both in the wild and in captivity. Budgies, as they’re most commonly called, are clever birds that can learn to speak and mimic sounds. Wild budgies are smaller than their captive counterparts, and are naturally green and yellow; although, through breeding there are tens of primary and hundreds of secondary colour varieties. If you didn’t think these birds were any more Aussie, the budgie’s name is slang for men’s swimwear. Google at your own peril. Budgies are only behind cats and dogs as one of the most popular pets in the world. Despite their popularity as a pet choice, they’re nowhere near…
