Highest form of flattery

One of The Flying Trilobite fans on Facebook recently purchased some stickers from my print shop and let me know he had placed them on his bumper.

I asked Thomas Trae if he could put the picture up and he did. 

Then he showed me the highest form of flattery toward my art:

He got inked!

"Did I forget to mention the Flying Trilobite is hovering over the Megasquid?" said Thomas.  Our ensuing conversation:

  • Flying Trilobite Is that painted?

  • Thomas Trae ‎'Tis inked, good sir.

  • Thomas Trae And boy did that area hurt. Not so much the trilo, but the green. Aaaaand he had to re-do it several times on different occasions.

  • Flying Trilobite Holy monkey - permanent? A tattoo? People will know you and I belong to some sort of ancient arthropod-worshipping cult --- er!! I mean people will *think* you and belong to some sort of cult. But that's just silly, heh heh....

  • Thomas Trae The trilobite just seemed to compliment the Forest Cthulhu. Yeah, we share 'the Mark' now. One day, when the stars are aligned, the Great Winged Trilo will rise from the depths of an alternate history...

Wow, does this mean your Blog has official cult status now?

Glendon Mellow said...

Yes, I have arrived, Marco. Although you get to be one of those hipsters who commented here before it was cool and only like my pre-2008 work before I sold out to Disney.

(I assume having a fan with a tattoo of my art means Disney will be trying to buy my licences any day now.)

Thanks mhb! Pretty awesome. I'm pleased it's next to a Cthulhu tattoo.
