Stuperbity Alive and Well in the Show-Me-State

Several women in Springfield, Missoura, are – shockingly – feeling regretful about their decisions to receive tattoos from a door-to-door tattoo artist.

One of the women, Linda Falls, passed out the day after getting her ink and was hospitalized. Now all of the women have developed site infections and are being cautioned to get tested for hepatitis and HIV.

Tamra Eason agreed to her tattoo despite noticing this:

“It was wrapped with black tape, had a pin underneath it, had fishing wire going through it, you could tell it was a homemade gun.”

What the hay? Who in their right minds buys a tattoo from some dude going door to door? I’m having trouble wrapping my brain around this.

But perhaps the most stuperb part is that – rather than being afraid to admit to such stupidity – the ladies have vented their frustrations on television, perhaps hoping for one of those “5 on your side” crusades from the local news channel. This sort of implies that the women think of themselves as victims who were treated unfairly by the tattoo guy.

Yes. Because I can see how you’d be surprised when the transaction didn’t turn out well.

I sincerely hope these people haven’t contracted a horrible disease, mostly because I’m a nice person but also so that I can continue to mock them. I also hope they remember this unfortunate episode when the door-to-door breast implant guy comes to town.

Or this guy.
