Hopefuly I won't be the only person who doesn't understand this.

I understand this. It's an artist ironically deifying a celebrity. The statue of Britney Spears giving birth was better. Artists need to move onto something else now pls tia.

Oh. By carving something into his flesh. This is sort of like smelling your own farts. For eternity.

the worst thing about this is that it elevates K-Fed's street cred exactly one c-hair. meh.

That is as apt an analogy as I have ever read here. That asshole is going to be saying "Remember 2006? When I was too cool for school? That was awesome!" until he finds himself finding a private place to change for racquetball c. 2013.

This is too easy to fake. Not saying it is, but I suppose for shock value we could get a young model to pretend to have his or her face tattoed while pretending to be drunk and it would fly over the internet.

Ummm, what does the sex-chair thingy have to do with k-fed? My girlfriend uses this computer, so there is no way I'm googling "K-Fed Sex Chair."

jazon, that's just the thing. I saw that page, but I wasn't sure what it was refering to. Did someone find those objects in k-fed's apartment? Who? And how? Is this somehow common knowledge? Did the, ahem, artist make that up or is there some reality to the claim?

that's some dumb-ass hipster shit right there.

The only things one would've found in Kfed's apartment at the time of his engagement were (1) weed, (2) weed, and (3) more weed. I find it hard to believe that Mr. Spears was imaginative enough to use a sex swing, and I'm pretty sure he was too broke to own one (let alone that sweet big-screen TV).

Dave Navarro, on the other hand...

I'm all over those one dollar cds tho.

this is so bizarre. Who sees a sex sling and thinks of "K-Fed"? Please. On the other hand, the drawing has a really nice line.
