* One ''Series/WhitestKidsUKnow'' sketch shows an inebriated character in the process of coming up with one of these. The end result is: [[SuperMarioBrothers Bowser]] wearing shades, whaling on a double-necked guitar, on a surfboard, in front of a huge pot leaf, in front of a cross, with "Happy Birthday Rick" written above it. It was never shown on the show, but it is on the Internet, and [[http://www.geekologie.com/2008/03/24/questionable-bowser-tattoo.jpg and there are no words to explain how much this guy is going to hate himself in twenty years.]]

* Averted in ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}''. Miyamura keep his body tattoos hidden while he's at school (to the point of always wearing long sleeves, even in the hottest of conditions), but it's just because he doesn't want to be bullied or get in trouble with the school board. He freely shows them off outside of school (along with his piercings), and even gets more tattoos early on in the story.

** Portgas D. Ace has his name tattooed on his arm, except it's written "ASCE" with the "S" crossed out. One would presume the artist couldn't spell, but the "S" [[spoiler:is actually a tribute to his thought to be dead brother Sabo (who's Jolly Roger was a crossed out S)]].
