Despite the general consenus in Tyrone Cottee’s extended family that he is a lost cause, he has still gone ahead with a tattoo that suggests otherwise.
“FAITH FAMILY RESPECT” across his shoulders.
The 37-year-old, who now works at one of the last remaining Blockbuster video stores in Australia, recently got the tattoo and his 4th holiday to Pattaya, during a boozy trip with his dodgy mates that look like drug dealers.
Tyrone’s uncle, Peter (66) says it was a very interesting choice of tattoo for the ‘young fella’ considering he doesn’t show much respect for his family, and his family have no faith in him.
“Yeah, I’ve seen some shocking tattoos in my time,” he says
“…but this one takes the cake. The bloke literally stole money from the middle compartment of his gran’s car last Christmas while she was at church,”
“Where does the faith come from? There’s no respect… and the family, I mean, we are quite hesitant about being involved in Tyrone’s life motto.”
Tyrone clarified why his family don’t have much faith in him in March this year, when he told his two younger cousins that they “Weren’t Around When The Pingers Were Good”
“Man, those were good times,” he inappropriately announced over an Easter lunch.
“I’d be so pinged up for days on end. We’d be blaring Moby and Darude. Those were the good old days,”
While he says his warehouse rave days are pretty much behind him, Tyrone can’t help but have the odd pinger here and there, just to see what its like for the young fellas nowadays.
