The grieving Jackass star decided to pay tribute to his former co-star by getting a tattoo to commemorate the loss of his good friend and co-star.

Dunn, aged 34, passed away with his mate Zachary Hartwell after a horrific car crash recently. It’s alleged that Ryan had been drinking the night of his death and was driving over 225 kms/hour.

Bam recently told the press that he and Dunn had an accident in the same spot that he died instantly in.

“He flipped me in a car eight times at the same exact spot in 1996,” Bam explained. “Thank God I had my seat belt on, because Chris Raab put one on me, but my brother didn’t have one on. He flew 40 feet. Thank God he’s alive. But, like, Dunn was always a maniac at driving.”

Bam stopped by NY Ink to get Dunn’s name marked inside a pre-existing heart tattoo on his wrist.

Wee Man asked in a video he posted on Twitter “After Ryan passed away,  how can I do something for Ryan?” 
 “Well, it’s something he’d probably do for anyone of us if it was one of us in the situation. I’m going to get him tattooed on me. Yep, that’s what I’m going to do.”

 

Jason  “Wee Man” Acuna  had Ryan’s face, smoking a cigarette, tattooed on his leg with the words “Random Hero!”.

 

 

Rapper T-Pain is a self confessed tattoo lover! 

This time, he proved his true love of “Facebook”, getting a new design inked on his forearm that reads “You don’t have to like me”, with the “Like” part of the tattoo being the Facebook “Like” Button. Now that sure is Facebook addiction!!

Seriously… What the F**K is this crap ???
 
No one can learn how to tattoo in two weeks!!!
It takes hard work, long (unpaid) hours & pure dedication to become a REAL tattoo artist.. Not to mention a skill level that you are just born with… Not just “taught” over two weeks….  Imagine the shit work that will come out of this lot !
 
 
Instead of shows like this and Miami Ink/ LA Ink etc, how about something that focuses on how difficult and cut-throat it is to actually get an apprenticeship and all the shit your average apprentice has to deal with before they’re even legal to permanently tattoo on someone!!!
 
 
This is not just about “entertainment” and honestly, let’s put aside the pure artistic talent that is required to become a DECENT tattoo artist… You cannot learn all there is to know about blood borne pathogens, cross contamination, health & safety standards all in two weeks. You are putting lives at risk!!!! Not only of that of the “tattoo artist” but also the person getting their “tattoo”.
 
 
Seriously… Only in AMERICA !!!!!!!!
 

Hollywood; the place where everyone sues everyone over just about anything imaginable.

The tattoo artist who created the iconic Mike Tyson facial tattoo attempted to sue Warner Brothers Entertainment. The character “Ed” in the “Hangover Part 2”, wakes up with a recreation of Tyson’s recognisable tribal facial tattoo.

The tattoo artist formerly of Las Vegas, now in Missouri was demanding monetary damages for  (in his terms) “reckless copyright infringement” and also demanded the creators put a hold on releasing the movie.

“This case is not about Mike Tyson, Mike Tyson’s likeness, or Mike Tyson’s right to use or control his identity,” the complaint against Warner Bros says. “This case is about Warner Bros. appropriation of Mr. Whitmill’s art and Warner Bros. unauthorized use of that art, separate and apart from Mr. Tyson.”

Mike Tyson plays the role of himself in both part 1 and 2 of The Hangover movies.

Terms of the settlement of the court case have not been disclosed, but the Tattoo Artists attorney said in a statement  “Warner Bros. and Mr. Whitmill have amicably resolved their dispute. No other information will be provided.”

The judge referred to the studio’s defences as “silly.”

What is the world coming to where tattoos may come under “copyright infringement”????

The film, meanwhile, has gone on to earn almost $500 million worldwide!!!
