After U.S. Sen. and Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz gave a speech at GraceWorks Church in Chattanooga yesterday morning, he revealed that the primary reason for his visit was actually to get some “sick tats” at Standard Ink Tattoo Company on Frazier Ave.

Cruz was fulfilling a suggestion he made last year, as reported by The Washington Post, that the words “Growth” and “Opportunity” should be tattooed on every Republican politician.

Apparently inspired by Robert Mitchum’s character in the film The Night of the Hunter, Cruz had the two words tattooed across his knuckles in a 3-D font resembling the one used by Metallica on its Master of Puppets album cover.

“This is some sweet-ass ink,” said Cruz while sitting in the tattoo parlor chair. “If I have enough time today, I’m going to get another tat, of Calvin pissing on a copy of the Affordable Care Act, on my caboose.”
