Permanent Ink

February 14, 2012

Knowing for a fact that Penny absolutely would get tattoos the moment she turned 18 outweighed the desire for me not to have to draw them from now until forever.

Speaking of which, the reason this took so long is that I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t regret the designs I chose.  It’s been five minutes since I finished and so far I’m in the clear.

Oh, and happy pink merchandise day.

    I wonder if Penny ever brushed her teeth with a bottle of jack..

  2. Thor says:

    Why does she have bug antennae crawling out of her cleavage?

  3. Alex says:

    Annnnnnnd one hour. Welp, regret sure didn’t take its time.

  4. alicemacher says:

    Penny fanservice! Thank you, Alex! ^__^

  5. LaughingTarget says:

    Remember, Alex, painful laser surgery does remove tattoos.

  6. maarvarq says:

    Of course, Penny could just bully Alex into removing that one – there must be some advantages to being a Fourth-Wall Breaker.

  7. legumious says:

    It’s more like two anteaters standing back to back on her tits, trying to eat freckles. Don’t worry Alex, I’ve got your back.

  8. Guyfrom132 says:

    Legumious posts such a reasonable answer that I fail to see how it could possibly be anything else. And I’m sure you’ve just gathered a small group of people who will be checking her tattoos every strip waiting until you write the Z backwards or get the stars the wrong colors.

  9. Yarin says:

    For longer than I can remember
    I’ve been looking for someone like you
    Someone with a head like yours and a torso too
    Birds sing, and YOU’RE GONNA PAY

  10. BarK says:

    Uh, Alex, you do remember this is a cartoon? One you’re drawing? You can change it, you know. You can have Penny’s tattoos removed by laser surgery, time travel or even elfin magic if you want.

    Please, by this time, I really don’t think anyone expects you to be consistent. I mean, how many times have you changed Herman Beckett’s appearance so far?

  11. MrGBH says:

    I wonder just how far down that line of stars goes?

  12. Jeff Weiner says:


  13. DCHorror says:

    @MrGBH Like a landing strip?

  14. IndigoRei says:

    Ok! now I wanna know what her middle name is.

  15. Thor says:

    Whatever it is, it begins with a “7″.

  16. LaughingTarget says:

    That’s a Z. Zoe, Zelda, Zebra, Zidane, Zephyr. I can’t think of any more.

  17. LaughingTarget says:

    Thought of one more. Penny “Ziploc” O’Brien.

  18. Calvin says:

    Alex, you’re regretting this after only an hour? Well, I certainly recommend that you do not get any tattoos of your own.

    Also, shirts cover up most of the tattoo’s. That can cut down on how often you have to redraw them.

  19. Alex says:

    It was mostly a joke. :P

  20. Person says:

    I wonder what Penny’s real favorite song is. P:

    Sorry if it’s already been said in the comments. DERP

  21. MrGBH says:

    It could just be Z.

  22. Missa says:

    Nice touch on the Dead Kennedy’s logo one Kate’s coat ;) didn’t catch it at first- wasn’t until I zoomed in on Penny’s “Z” tattoo…

  23. TIki says:

    Two tats after prom? Whoa.

  24. Zombie-man says:

    I think that Penny’s stomach looks kind of weird, it looks really similar with ot without her shirt. You should pay more atention to those detail in the anatomy.

    Besides that, is a good strip as ussual. It got me kind of exited about seeing Penny with tattoos now!
