Eric Michael Morris offers a coda to the bro-love tattoo movement

Posted By on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 at 1:05 PM


Remember the deal I told you about several months back about the local musicians who, in a grand display of not-gay-at-all man love, were tattooing each others' names and faces and logos on themselves?

Well, it looks like Eric Michael Morris, guitarist in The See and Magic Hassle, has conceived a tattoo so over the top in its winking homoerotic bro-love as to forever bury the trend. On the small of the back, his tramp stamp, he recently got the tattoo you see above: the silhouette of Thick Syrup Records head honcho Travis McElroy with the words "Sick cock, bro" underneath.

I hung out with Morris for a little while on the Fourth and he reported that reactions have vacillated from what I suggested above, that this is the end, no one will ever top it, to "you are the world's biggest idiot."

"Both are true," he acknowledged.
