Pokémon Balls Subdermal Implants

This image has been going around the Internet for a few days, but thanks to Anime News Network, we now know who acquired these Pokémon balls subdermal implants. His name is Alex Finch, and he is a hardcore fan:

Finch spoke with ANN and stated that he has been a fan of the Pokémon videogame and anime franchise since he was in third or fourth grade, and that he chose to get six Poké Ball tattoos in reference to the number of Poké Balls which can be carried in the original videogames. He also noted that the tattoos shown are "just the beginning" as he plans to get additional tattoos of videogame, cartoon, and anime icons on the rest of the arm, including more Poké Balls.

Saw this months ago on Modblog. I'm conflicted. The Pokemon fan in me thinks it's awesome, but I also think this dude is a tool for actually doing this.

When I first saw this, I thought "What an awesome tattoo!" and thennn I saw the implants along with it. It's just not giving the effect he was probably going for.

I don't know if he has anything on his face, but it's definitely possible for him to get a normal office job. I worked with a guy that had his arms covered in tattoos, but he always wore long sleeves (usually a long sleeve shirt and a jacket) and most the people at work wouldn't have guessed. I'm not sure how the bumps would play into that, but if it was loose enough - I'm guessing it wouldn't be a problem

"'s definitely possible for him to get a normal office job."

Only if he figures out a way to hide that huge labret!

"Wow....even more balls he'll never get to use."

"I choose you Pikachu!" then the pokeball bursts open, leaving his arm all mangled.

Shame this is real life and not the cartoon.
