This Grumpy Cat Darth Vader Tattoo is a Pop Culture Mashup

An unknown Reddit user recently posted a photograph of his new Grumpy Cat Darth Vader tattoo, proving that, yes, unimpressed cats and paternal sci-fi villains can indeed be combined.

The tattoo has garnered a ton of Internet attention, with its quirky nod to pop culture and its strange, contrasting subjects. Its permanent status, however, is a bit frightening. Hopefully its owner will always be a huge fan of Tard the Grumpy Cat and of Star Wars.

The Grumpy Cat Darth Vader tattoo demonstrates just how much the Internet has impacted our lives. Grumpy Cat is just what he sounds like; a cat that has a permanently disgruntled expression on its whiskery face. However, Grumpy Cat has affected people all over the world, leading to permanent tributes to the cat, like this tattoo. The Internet is definitely the most effective media source in contemporary society, but this tattoo proves that its reach extends beyond the computer screen and directly into reality.
