There are plenty of reasons to get a tattoo. You can get one to honor a loved one, pay tribute to a cause, or even just because it’s a beautiful design. But there are almost zero reasons to get a tattoo of a McDonald’s receipt permanently inked on your forearm.
“Almost zero reasons?” you ask aloud. “Surely he means precisely zero reasons.”
No, no I do not. I have no choice but to say ‘almost zero’ because a Norwegian teenager seems to have found at least one reason, and it’s exactly what you’d expect it to be.
Stian Ytterdah, 18, paid over $300 to have a fast food receipt tattooed on his right forearm because YOLO.
That’s right! Ytterdah appears to be a member of YOLO Nation, the group of people known worldwide for making reckless decisions because “you only live once.” And after committing to spending the rest of his life with Norwegian fast food phrases like “1 Happy Cheese” and “1 NonStop Flurry” etched into his skin, Ytterdah is making a strong case to be the president of this nation of idiots.
But in case you and his potential constituents are not convinced, the teen doubled down on his bizarre tattoos platform this week. Ytterdah got the receipt from his McDonald’s tattoo inked on his other forearm, an ABC News report said.
If that isn’t enough, I don’t know what is. But if he doesn’t become the fearless leader of YOLO Nation, it will mean both of his tattoos were created in vain.
Unless his taxes are ever audited. If that happens, we’ll all have no choice but to praise him for his extreme dedication to keeping good records.
Yikes. Let’s hope he gets the job.You can reach me at email@example.com. Follow me @dougsaffir
