Our Lady Of Rude Kustoms

I love articles of clothing that are the Japanese equivalent of Western kanji tattoos that supposedly mean “Strong Warrior” but actually say “Wednesday.” Here, a slightly mannish Our Lady has been pressed into service to perform the miracle of deciphering, “First to live young to die no risk no life,” as well as relocating the entire city of Oakland to southern California. Gotta admit, though, the look is realy kool.
