Fad? Probably. Practical? Not really. Funny? ABSOLUTELY! I’m talking about the “Fingerstache” craze. The fingerstache trend involves getting a stylized moustache tattooed on ones index finger. The finger is then placed between the nose and the lips simulating a moustache. According to my findings this all started in a place where I spent some great years of my life…Columbus, Ohio! The irony! Apparently a local tattoo artist began tattooing moustaches as a joke. When photos and stories hit the net and landed on sites like Something Awful the weird, little tattoos got a big buzz. Now there are entire websites and social networking communities devoted to fingerstaches. Like planking and Silly Bandz all fads will come to an end…but for now, get your stache on so we can get our laugh on.
So what would make one tattoo a moustache on their finger? It sure makes for a good laugh, but a damn permanent one. It’ll be intersesting when these people grow old and their grandchildren ask “Grandma/Grandpa, what’s that on your finger?”
