25 Real People With Insane Clown Posse-Themed Tattoos
It's Juggalo week on Sound of the City, which is like Shark Week, but with less teeth.

Pretty much the only other press dude to bother with this summer's Juggalo fest was Onion writer Nathan Rabin, who noted that this year's Gathering was a rare place in America where "neck tattoos of the Insane Clown Posse's hatchet-man logo became sources of intense pride rather than obstacles to securing even the sketchiest employment." True story. But even more remarkable than all the visible hatchetmen were all the inches of skin real-estate devoted to Insane Clown Posse's Joker's Cards, a series of six concept-album characters purportedly based on six evil aspects of human nature. (Ah, just go here.)
The series was supposed to be complete at six, so many Juggalos laid out their body art accordingly. But at this year's Gathering, the clown rapper dudes announced that they'd be releasing a second deck of Joker's Cards. Good news for Buzzfeed; bad news for hardcore tattooed Juggaludes. 25 such folks are below. I mostly left the captions in your head.
The special "Juggalo Princess" status comes with diamonds, bows, and a crown.

You realize that Kottonmouth Kings logo is forever.
