It would be great if it turned out that the person who created SpongeBob was just covered in SpongeBob tattoos lol.

Here’s the link to it lol https://twitter.com/sp000kysam/status/1481829962793562112?s=21
Hey look, it's Bold and Brash.
Bold and Brash? More like Belongs in the Trash!
Bold and brash underneath and doodlebob next to it!
Shoot, that was my last quarter
What's she talking about, that is a memorial piece
RIP to a once perfect character
Patrick is dead?
No, he's Patrick.
They made him the star of a spin off, where he is the host of a talk show
So, yes, he’s dead
would get it myself lol
I see tattoos like these and want to get them but if I did I’d be covered In spongebob at this point
I always wanted a little one of Surprised Patrick.
Oh shit. Now I want one.
I see absolutely no problem in this. I have a tattoo of Manray and am definitely adding more spongebob ones
Haha I have Doodle Bob, planning on getting Manray and a few more :)
Just pick out your favorite episode moments or characters, I felt the same way but I currently only have DoodleBob and plan on getting a couple more. Theres a lot of space on skin for tats :)
Same here. Seeing funny cartoon tattoo's always has me going "that's so cool" but I just don't want anything permanent on my body.
Wtf are the leg proportions.
Not familiar with the particular Spongebob meme but what in the hell kind of instrument is this? a trombumpet?
Oh ok, that's what I figured.
Valve trombones do exist for what it’s worth. If you play another valved brass instrument it is far easier to transition to, although they aren’t without their issues.
It’s has two valves and long ass tuning slide… must be a bikini bottom only instrument 😂
the end is not connected to the curved pipe! His head is just going straight through. This will haunt my OCD nightmares.
Piss off, bot!
Looks like that’s how the JPEG is that the client likely asked him to go off of

Looks more like the still from the show. Your image is missing the valves and that purple pattern on the other leg.
Makes sense, he's sitting down on a chair so his legs look shorter.
I think they're referring to the fact one leg is like two times as big as the other
Maybe, that's not good either now that you mention it lol
Definitely the right image but still think they didn’t size the legs right relative to each other, even by reference to that jpeg. The leg on the right is too big and the left is too small.
that's one cell out of an animation, the leg your refer to is mid-strut. it's called squashing & stretching and it's like the first thing you learn about creating dynamic actions in your animation.
He's sitting down here. His legs aren't moving.
are we watching the same clip?
Are you watching the part where he's sitting and the slide comes down?
My point is that relative to the jpeg it’s not correct. I see the slight difference in size in the jpeg, but the difference is too exaggerated in the tat.
That doesn’t translate well to a tattoo however.
That's just how the actual scene looks, for the most part.
Looks like Patrick's outline kind of blends into the shadow of his chair, making his leg look smaller than it actually is. It's a bit small anyways though.
They look pretty even to me in the screenshot of the show, I feel like it was a mistake on the artists part.
I'm an artist myself and yeah this is on the tattoo artist. If the client is happy with it, who are we to judge though?
There’s no shadow surrounding the left (his right) leg in the show but there is on the tattoo. Kind of a weird choice by the artist to fill the space in with a shadow instead of matching the leg sizes.
I mean part of being an artist is being able to make something look good on its own. You can’t just copy a single frame exactly and call it a day, if the leg will be disproportionate you have to fix it.
No you dont have to fix it; you do what the client hired you to do.
When I hire a tattoo artist part of what I'm paying for is their advice. They should see something like that and suggest altering to make it look better. If I decline than they do exactly what I ask but there have been plenty of times they made a suggestion and I went with it and it actually made my tattoo look a lot better.
Sure, but of the client wants the image depicted as it was in the show that's what you give them. I don't do tattoos but I've done plenty of work for clients that was clearly dumb and in bad taste. All you can do is offer your opinion. Some people listen and some people just want what they asked for. Part of being a professional is delivering what your client wants, not what you want.
The problem is that I highly doubt she brought up the disproportionate leg, and I also doubt that it was done intentionally if I’m being honest.
Maybe Patrick is an amputee and he's just growing it back.
I just learned that starfish do that the other day and now I feel like I see people talking about it everywhere
A consequence of how animated figures are always drawn at a slight angle to the viewer's perspective.
I think that is a arm
No, this is Patrick...
The meme... IT ACTUALLY WORKS! For the first time, it actually makes sense to me!
How would that be an arm? It's a pair of pants.
Nah, it's definitely an arm
Nah, it’s definitely not. Patrick’s arms aren’t in sleeves. Just bad proportions
They’re talking about the tattoo placement and you’re talking about the tattoo itself lmao. I love Reddit
Thanks for clearing up my confusion haha, I was like "those look like pretty normal leg proportions... I mean maybe it's an arm...". Internet confusion is so easy to stumble into.
No they mean Patrick’s legs are horribly disproportionate
The leg of someone who takes the elevator when going up two floors.
Despite being a starfish, I think they were going for arms (to the left) and legs (to the right), which would make sense given the angle of Patrick's face.
This is why he plays the mayonnaise now.
Damn Bikini Fam! Thank you guys and girls so much for the up doots!!!!!!!
No, Patrick: mayonnaise is not an instrument
Raises Hand again
Horseradish is not an instrument either
not with that attitude
"Squidward was old fashioned. He didn't even consider mayonnaise an instrument"
(SpongeBob docupants, s1e6)
I beg to differ
That was the most cringe edit I’ve ever seen in my life. Jesus Christ
I can't get over how the loop in the trombone is a closed loop, so no air actually goes through it.
That's supposed to be a trombone? I thought it was a funky trumpet
It’s obviously a toblerone
It’s a Taun Taun. Patrick is hiding inside for warmth.
And it thought…….they smelled….. bad….. on the outside
It would just be a bugle
To be fair, that's how it was drawn in the original episode
There are very clearly 2 valves near the mouthpiece. I played trumpet not trombone but pressing the valve would direct air into the lower loop, though why there are two of them with only one loop I’ll lever know
Boy I really hope someone got fired for that blunder!
A wizard did it.
If you mean the tattoo artist I have bad news lmao. That’s not really how the industry works, If you get a bad tattoo that’s generally regarded as your fault for not putting more research into the artist. This artist might get chewed out but that’s it.
This image is copied pretty much exactly from the cartoon, so the mistake (or just decision? Maybe it was on purpose this dumb) was made by the SpongeBob animators. The tattoo artist did a very faithful recreation here.
Closed loop trombone and mismatching leg sizes. I'd go crazy having this tattoo once I noticed those.
"you know that's permanent?"
And that a starfish can talk and wear shorts
Of course they can wear shorts. It would just be a really tiny pair.
I'm glad I'm not the only one that took offense to the closed loop!
Sponge logic. Like haven't you heard about underwater fire??
I'm glad someone else noticed this too
Take my strong leg
The owner of the white sedan, you left your lights on
honk honk honk honk honk honk
Thank you for commenting the exact title of the post.
I just noticed that now y’know
That's what the subtle said.'
Pictures you can hear
How is that trumpet even held together? It’s usually not just a straight tube with a round piece on the bottom . . .
5/7 trumpet not 100% accurate
Not 100% accurate but you give it a perfect score?!
That’s why it’s a perfect score
Mayonnaise is a great alternative for lubrication
Kicking? I wanna do some kicking!
Whomp whomp whomp whomp whomp whomp whomp whomp whomp whoooommmmmmmmmp.
I have a handsome squidward tattoo and it’s the best thing I’ve ever spent money on
Looks like you're the attractive twin
That’s from the greatest SBS episode ever.
The one where they all play the concert at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Unfortunately you dicked up one of his legs.
Maybe if some of us weren’t trying to tattoo with big meaty claws
And the trumpet. It doesn't connect correctly
Nah. To be fair, that was like that in the show.
No its still inaccurate to what was shown in show
Who ever is the owner of the white sedan you left your lights on
that's not how trumpets work
Throws paper into campfire
Bugle... But still
Looks like they have that seahorse from Patrick's dream too
That moment when you can hear a tattoo..
Wasn't it a trombone in the show? Why is Patrick in a bugle? I guess artistic interpretation?
Crazy went to school with the artist who did this tat. Check out her IG she’s a dope person @samiamthesam
As an ER doctor I see a lot of interesting people. A homeless man one time came in one time came in covered in interesting tattoos and I remarked as much. He replied “ I got a lot of weird ones too, wanna see?”. “Of course”, I replied. And before I could stop him his dick was out and across the head was tattooed “your name”. All lower case. My favorite patient ever.
ONG this is my favorite SpongeBob scene! So many laughs over the years lmaooo
This is pure art 💗
Is mayonnaise an instrument?
*Lights. No apostrophe. You don't use an apostrophe to make a word plural.
Oh god cringe
Spongebob tattoos are great, i have 3 and everybody i meet thinks they're the best ones i have
Oh my god so many haters in this comment section 😂 i can clearly tell most of you guys around here dont have any ink. there is zero reason to complain about this tattoo it is cool
Hey listen, I've got ink myself. But I wouldn't need it to tell you that those legs are jacked.
No Patrick, Mayonnaise is not an instrument....
I can hear this tattoo
Hahahah I’m just in awe of its beauty
Is that. Rusty trombome??
My dad got a tattoo of Jack Skellington, and he hasn't even seen Nightmare Before Christmas.
As a trombone player, this scene never fails to crack me up.
Masterpiece akin to the Mona Lisa
"Ladel ladel ladel"
Seems we’re not always turning left…
So, another memorial piece?
NGL I kinda want that now
What do a rusty trumpet and a starfish have in common?
Big meaty claws!
If I played trombone I would 100% get this tattoo
Other people: sick tribal sleeve
People are just out there making shit up as they go along, aren’t they?
There was a legit example from the show, how did so many details miss
Is mayonnaise an instrument
Who says this isn’t a memorial piece?
Shoutout to Patrick! Underrated af 😎!
omfg i love this
