Surfing Reddit when you're a Reddit amateur is a lot like trying to figure out why your iPhone randomly shuts off in a Juggalo forum -- you rarely find what you're looking for, but you're likely to find something else worth sharing.

The Grumpy Cat (aka Tardar Sauce) is a Arizona-based internet celebrity whose career was launched when her owners launched a Tardar Sauce Tumblr page.

Since, the frowning cat's been the subject of countless memes, ridiculous television interviews, and side-by-sides with Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson.

And now he's been inked.

According to Reddit user trippindicular, the tattoo was spotted at a Black Metal Friday event at Deep Six, a tattoo parlor in Philadelphia. Tom Taylor is the artist responsible.
