Autistic Man Gets A Tattoo At Last After Being Rejected By Every Tattoo Shop

Published 5 years ago

Tattoos are permanent pieces of art and it’s completely normal to take your time deciding what will be inked onto your body. Buzz, a 23-year-old autistic man, was determined to get a tattoo of his favorite character tattooed on his arm. Sadly, he ran into a little problem – no tattoo parlor wanted to do it.

Buzz’s mom, Sandi, told KTVU that he wanted a tattoo for a long time and she promised he could get one when he was older. The mother wanted to surprise her son on his 23rd birthday but no local tattoo parlor agreed to do it – they set the prices incredibly high or just straight-out refused.

However, one tattoo shop, Northwest Inkorporated , finally agreed to tattoo Buzz. Pat Masga, an artist at the salon, said Buzz arrive with a huge smile and from the first moment he knew that this tattoo was “getting done”. “Whether it took me five hours or five sessions, I was willing to do it. He sat like a champ, didn’t complain or quit, and we did it!” said the artist.

Buzz got a tattoo of his favorite character – Tommy, from the classic children’s TV series Rugrats. Over 400k people showed their support on Facebook and Buzz looked like he couldn’t be happier.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
