'The Expendables' Poster: Let Me Touch Up Your Tattoo

May 15, 2009

With a cast that includes Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, and other guys easily capable of murder, The Expendables is definitely the upcoming movie most being described on the internet as "fucking badass." Thus, for the above first poster for the film, they've wisely shown off the badass, Expendable-themed tattoo one of the characters presumably has.

But I'm just thinking, having seen far more intense scenes depicted in Russian prison tattoos, is this really enough? I'm just thinking we could tweak this to make it slightly more appropriately badass.

Here's what I'm thinking:

A rundown of the improvements:

  • No Fear (Dangerous Gear) logo.
  • A hundred-dollar bill (a Benjamin).
  • Smaller skulls within the larger, primary skull.
  • Steve McQueen as "Bullitt."
  • Cover of Guns N' Roses' 1987 album "Appetite for Destruction."
  • Crow now holding a mummy riding a skateboard in its beak, and has the entire tattoo poster as its own tattoo.
I couldn't find an image of a helicopter with nunchuks for blades, but that would probably also be a worthy addition.
