Watch This Etymologist Give Himself A Tattoo Using Bed Bugs

Y’know, every once in a while I get asked to write something that makes me intrinsically want to say “NONONONONO” but I still have to write something positive about it.

So, um, isn’t nice of this entomologist to feed 1000 bed bugs using his own arm? He even got a cute little (itchy, swollen) bunny tattoo out of the deal.

Mind you, he’s totally cool with this and there’s even an interesting story about why they have this bed bug colony in the first place. But you’re just gonna have to watch the video because I’m running off to dunk myself in hot water and lots of soap.

Check out the video after the break.
