Default Air-brushing (gone horribly wrong)

We’ve all seen it before, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Ex: When $300K worth of offshore excellence passes by with small town amusement park ride like murals airbrushed all over the boat.

Dear lord (you say to yourself) as you chuckle at the site.

Here are some examples:





I am very much familiar with the terms “to each their own” and “do what makes you happy”. But, what posses people to airbrush a half naked chick on the side of a boat? Or a laughable Pirate for that matter? The Pirate as displayed above make me giggle like a school girl every time I look. “Arrrrrrgh Matis, it takes 3 tickets to ride this pirate ship! And you must be taller than this here Parrot. Arrrrgh. Here’s your complimentary eye patch.

Maybe these guys had previous employment in the carnival scene (Carnies)?

Perhaps it I who needs to broaden my appreciation for the finer expressions of art

Anyhow, post some examples if you got’em.

LOve Muscle is a perfect example of how you can paint a half naked chick on the boat and it look good. Most people just don't have the ballz to do it. Puzzy's

Airbrushing is not for me. But I do actually appreciate it when it is hidden somewhat. Some guys will airbrush under a hatch so you only see it when it is open....I think that is cool. It's like a little surprise!

I wouldn't say gone horribly wrong. Obviously it's not for you and that's fine. There are probably corporate sponsorships involved.

In any case it's just paint or vinyl. It's not like its forever.
