As you will certainly know by my hacking it here, our Von Gutenberg #8, with Megan Massacre on the cover is our tattoo themed issue. We got goodies galore inside, Midori fiction, a House of Harlot photo display, Xander Design stuff, event coverage, and models like Bibiana Atada, Onna Sakura and of course Megan you will be glancing over again and again; it’s the usual VG splendifurous display. I’m ever so proud of this rockin’ candy colored cover of a book where we, as always, come to champion our love for latex couture, piercings and in this issue specifically tattoos-actually-and as always-V.G. champions any and all expression. Here at Von Gutenberg we really are into so many forms of ‘fashion’, whether it is in the clothes people wear or the things they do.
But it’s hard to champion expression when it is conducted in a way that is just downright frat boy foolhardy.
It seems a pack of Nebraska fantasy footballers set up a deal for their play…if you want to call what they do play. In these player’s “league” if you come in last you get tatted. The rule is the loser has to allow a tattoo placed on any four-inch-by-four-inch square on their person (luckily the loser can choose the tat) but as you will see from the clip below of Adam, Jordan and Spud (yes Spud) when they appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the pics here, those tat’s can get out and out pretty embarrassing,…which is kinda the point I guess.
“The whole purpose of this league was to punish the loser so that everybody played as hard as they can every week,” was the quote from one of the boys.

See people who carefully chose their tattoos and didn’t get inked from losing a bet in our issue # 8:
