If you wanna see some awesome Stone Cold Steve Austin tattoos, gimme a "Hell Yeah!"

When I was a child, I used to sit on the living room floor and watch the WWF. I'd be glued to superstars like Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage as they fought in the ring. Then during commercial breaks I'd reenact all of their moves on my poor My Pet Monster, dropping elbow after elbow from the top rope (the arm of our sofa). 

Eventually I grew out of watching wrestling. Or at least that's what I thought. Then, in high school, I was over at a friend's place on a Monday night sneaking a few adult beverages. He was watching "Monday Night Raw," which seemed incredibly silly to me, but who I was I to complain? I was drinking his dad's beer on the sly, I didn't get to choose the channel. 

Then it happened. The sound of breaking glass. A thunderous pop from the crowd. That's when I saw him for the first time. Stone Cold Steve Austin, the Texas Rattlesnake, making his way to the ring. It's impossible to describe the way he moved without it sounding unintentionally condescending. To me, he appeared to look like a man in dire need of finding the restroom, but somehow it worked. It was menacing. By the time he mounted the second rope and called for a couple of beers I was hooked again. My childhood love of wrestling came back to life one it had been combined with my teenage passion for rebel rousing, and it did so through the body of work of one Mr. Stone Cold Steve Austin. I had been born again... I think that might be what the passage Austin 3:16 was all about, right? 

So crack yourself a couple of Steveweisers and check out this collection of Stone Cold tattoos for 3/16.
