A few hours ago, while reviewing the OC Weekly's coverage of the Big 4 metal festival in Indio, Calif., we came across this picture of a female metal fan with a sweet-ass Slayer tattoo in the middle of her abdomen. Why does God creates such beautiful things, and then keeps them a thousand miles away from Rocks Off, we will never know.
The Big 4, featuring sets by Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax, was probably the metal show of 2011. It looked like a lot of fun, and coming a few weeks after Coachella, it seems to have washed away the douchester muck off the grounds with pure metal terror.
Anyhow, looking at the Slayer girl made us imagine what it would be like to date her, and how every disagreement would inevitably lead to a Slayer pun as she once again emasculated us in front of our friends for not being as metal as she is. We can change if that's what will make you happy, ma'am.
