Fight Club

Literary Tattoos: Fight Club (1999) Fight Club Chuck Palahniuk

“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.”

- Tyler Durden in Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

    That tattoo is incredible. I absolutely love this. I love Fight Club, and getting that whole speech on your body is serious dedication.

    Wow, the last four lines of that look pretty terrible! Sloppy and unevenly spaced. Looks like the tattoo artist started to get tired. I’d be bummed but as long as you’re happy with it!
