Mate Who Got Tattoo On First Day Of Overseas Boys Trip Really Going To Miss Sleeping On That Side — The Betoota Advocate

They say travel broadens the horizon and that may be true for intrepid traveller Henry Voss (19) who has learnt that sometimes he can be a total fucking dumbass.

On a matching-shirted boys trip across Europe, Voss made the choice on the first night of the Contiki tour to hold up his end of the matching tattoo deal they joked about back in Betoota.

Choosing to get a tattoo of cartoon dog Snoopy standing by a lake on his right arm, Voss couldn’t wait to show his mates the tattoo and how short-sighted he is, and always has been.

“I’ve got Snoopy but some of them are going to get like Scooby Doo or Brian from Family Guy by a lake, we’re gonna be called the Cartoon Reservoir Dogs,” smiled Voss as he attempted to explain the concept to his Dutch tattoo artist who despite speaking fluid English still didn’t get the joke.

“It’s funny.”

After his tattoo was met with mixed reviews, Voss chose to go to bed only to realise that his tattoo had now seriously limited his ability to have a good night’s sleep.

“Oh fuck.”

According to Voss’s ‘boys,’ the tattoo idea was not even fully agreed on but it’s still funny as fuck that he went ahead with it as he has now ruined his holiday.

“Doesn’t he know the kind of shitty rat dens we’re going to be staying in?” laughed one mate of Voss’s.

“He’s going to be trying to sleep while people are snoring and fucking louder than he has ever heard and he’s only going to have one side to do it on.”

“I might actually get my tattoo now, this is funny as fuck.”
