Joe Rogan Is Really Into This Hallucinating Thing

From MMAFightGirls

Joe Rogan has a new tattoo (well a few months old) which took over 5 sessions to complete, but it’s pretty amazing. Aaron Della Vedova from Guru Tattoo is the artist who did all of this amazing work. Apparently the sleeve tattoo depicts Joe’s DMT (Spirit Molecule) trip where he hallucinated and saw an Alien Thai Buddha made out of energy telling him not to give into astonishment. If you look at the molecule in the center of the tattoo it’s the DMT, Dimethyltryptamine, molecule.


I can’t imagine a bigger hippie move than tattooing your own psychedelic vision on your arm. He’s going to run out of body space if he keeps taking up real estate like this. What if he has another, even crazier trip the next time he goes DMT’ing, and one of those machine elves is like “I would love it if you tattooed our little adventure on your left arm, that would really make me happy.” Because he’s basically screwed at that point.

In other Roganews…

When you watch UFC 89 tomorrow night, you’re going to see a more hirsute version of Joe Rogan than you’re used to. That’s because he’s grown out an Evan Tanner tribute beard. When the idea was originally suggested on the UG forum a month ago, Joe replied “Fuck yeah, I’m down.” Feel free to show your support by not shaving tomorrow. And pour some out for the beloved inspiration…

I think its good looking work. All you people who say its stupid need to keep in mind that just because it may not suit you doesnt mean that your opinion is right. Maybee your fucking stupid and your opinons are "dumber than dogshit".

I like Joe, but getting a tattoo cause you tripped is fucking stupid.
And even worse, growing a stupid Evan tanner beard is dumber than dogshit, its dumber than going out in the desert and dying.

I didnt know there was a cave man division in the UFC. Thats cool,...UFC is breaking boundries!!.........Is Geico partnering with them to???

Bad move Bens: Your string of fairly logical arguments has been broken.
Joe's tattoo is of an extremely profound and life changing experience, the nature of which many, especially you, do not understand. To simply say its a "hippie move" and bring up some bullshit point of not enough space for all your trips is just plain lazy.
Put down your bottle of hateraide and how bout instead of sophomoric "vomit" bets on fights, why don't you grow a pair and the loser take a DMT trip....with Joe...and how bout live on the radio/youtube.

Tattoos are trite, boring and plain.

Look at me! Look at me!

Except the one you have. Yeah, yours is super cool."

If it means something important to you than why not. Stupid designs that aren't anything? I would agree there.

If your a moron and do not know...Joe's stand up is genius. Get out and support him locally.

that is a badass pic of evan

Supporting the beard is a +1 for Joe Rogan. Plus I never see famous people post on message boards -- so that's kinda cool.
Darrin- October 17, 2008 at 12:05 am
I've also been growing out an Evan Tanner tribute. Not nearly as impressive as Joe's.

wow athlete you musy be a fan on Melencia or wut? might be a jew asshole but all we were saying was nice tatt!

Joe's great. Saw his stand up act in Boston a few months ago. At the end of the act, he thanked the Boston born/trained fighters in the croud. Cote was sitting directly behind me for about 2 hrs. Didn't even look behind me until rogan said that. They stood and waived, and I had to laugh. I do hope Cote suprises people (who dosen't love an upset), but give him huge props for stepping in with Silva. You have to realize, everyone has someone elses number. No one thinks it is Cote, but you absolutely never know. Hoping for a good fight, as Silva is fresh out of challengers in his class for the moment.

Patrick- October 16, 2008 at 8:05 pm
That tat is tough, talk all the shit you want but at least it has SOME kind of meaning.
Beats some stupid tribal bullshit any day.
Clumsy- October 16, 2008 at 7:55 pm
Suck in that gut Joe...suck it in!

That is some crazy work. But I think Paul Booth would have done it MUCH better (he did some of my work). Google some of his work, its awesome.

Also, doesnt Joe's pec look like its lactating? Pretty odd looking.
