Ever wanted to cover yourself in Calvin and Hobbes tattoos? Well, they might have something to say about that.

“Van Gogh would’ve sold more than one painting if he’d put tigers in them.” —Hobbes

And while a basic piece of flash might be fun, something tells me Hobbes would’ve felt similarly about tattoos, especially a Calvin and Hobbes tattoo. So bare that in mind as you pick your next piece of ink. Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes is a treasure-trove of adorable visuals and unusually insightful comments on everything from the evolutionary relevance of a sense of humor to special underwear.
