Garfield was the perfect cat for those who claim to loathe cats, plain and simple.
An exaggeration of all the qualities so often complained about where felines are concerned–perpetual resting b-tch face, selfishness, moodiness, and a penchant for mischief.
Garfield was a Sunday morning staple for those with a similar m.o. Deadpan and sarcastic, and always just a few steps ahead of his owner Jon and fellow roommate Odie the dog, Garfield exemplified the gently evil genius that is the hallmark of cats everywhere.
Maybe you’re a bachelor like Jon, and have a Garfield of your own on your hands. Or maybe you’re something of a Garfield yourself? Perhaps you too loathe simple creatures like Odie and enjoy a good round of laconic banter; maybe al you want in life is sleep and lasagna, and for everyone else to leave you alone. Your Garfield tattoo will certainly illicit a few chuckles from the similar-minded, but your nearest and dearest will likely shake their heads with a sigh and conclude that yep, that’s you alright.
Garfield may be the king of cartoon cats, but your tattoo puts your own spin on the feline’s world view. With a number of depictions and styles to choose from, it’s no exaggeration to say there’s a Garfield for every man.
Even if you prefer the Odies of the world (and who could blame you?), your tattoo will send a message that your fandom most certainly isn’t compromised by your own wit and keen eye for the absurdities that frequently accompany human life.
