Now, that’s one hell of a peninsula.

yeah, as has been explained, not da Yoop… but I have heard of a great story about a U.P. tat from a friend of a friend. This person was a homesick yooper living in Seattle who decided to get a tattoo of the U.P. So she printed out a simple outline of the peninsula and in the middle wrote “906” (the single area code of the U.P.) She gave it to this Washington bred artist and he completes the job in a sitting, putting it on a back shoulder blade. At the end, he sets up the mirror for her to see the work… And can you see where this is going?… He had tattoed it upside down!
The whole family is gorgeous!
I believe we should given the Upper Penninsula to Canada to make up in part for the grief we cause them.
what should we give the Natives for all the grief we cause them, then?
This family rocks!
I normally cringe at the photos here, but this makes me wish I had been adopted by them. 🙂
That is not even CLOSE to looking like the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! CHECK a map for proof!!!
What’s more awkward is the idea that this is a map of a peninsula. Look at a map fool. I think the tattoo idea is pretty awesome
I love it. Ill be forcing my family into this soon.
Loving the girls leg strewn over her dads shoulder.
Yeah, she’s pretty hot.
Since Grandma died and they had to sell the cabin on the lake, they had to pay an ink artist to turn the tatts into eagles.
They are adorable.
This family never gets lost any more while out boating on the lake!
That’s lake michigamme, with a map of Cardinal Pt Road. I live on the lake. It’s not supposed to be the upper peninsula, or lake superior, or anything else. Just an outline of the lake and where their camp is
I was going to say, I live in Michigan and that looks nothing like the upper peninsula or lake superior haha! Good to know what lake it is though.
THANK YOU! One look at that and you can tell it’s not the UP, eh! I wouldn’t have known it was a lake though. (I’m a troll :/ )
I have been staring at this for several minutes trying to decide if it was a really (really) poor representation of the U.P. or if the caption was wrong. Thank you for having an easy answer.
Thats where the idea of LOST (We have to get back to the Island) came from.
I actually love this. The family that tattoos together, stays together.
I found the tattoo idead a bit weird but I can’t look at the picture without having the feeling that these people are nice, cute and cool… wish I could spend a weekend at U.P with them!
I know two of these People!
I was shocked to see them!
I actually know these people. The tattoo is of a lake they have a cabin on.
I actually think this is pretty cool. A little awkwardly posed, but I like the idea.
It’s Lake Michigamme, fools.
This is a picture that demands a backstory!
There *is* a backstory! And a hip story, and a foot story and a shoulder story…
Ha ha, you’re funny
lol, u got that right brah
Is that a peninsula in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
Awkward? Check. Good-looking family? Check.
I am so confused by this
I’m guessing it should say it’s a tattoo of LAKE SUPERIOR not the U.P.!!! After taking a good look, that’s what it looks like…
Not close to what Lake Superior looks like.
What shape is it??
What Peninsula is that supposed to be?? It’s not the Upper Peninsula (Michigan)
That looks nothing like the U.P.
I can’t quite tell what that is but it doesn’t look much like the UP of Michigan
It’s lake Michigamme in the U.P.
