Skyrim Fan Takes An Arrow in the Knee


Skyrim's "arrow in the knee" meme makes the jump from the internet to some lady's leg.

You can tell your infuriating internet meme has made the big leagues when impressionable types start branding themselves with it. The leg you see to the right, complete with the cartoonish arrow, belongs to tattoo artist Nikkisny. The pic was originally found on website FunnyJunk, along with an amusingly combative essay from Nikkisny:

I have a lot of silly tattoos along with tattoos that mean a lot to me. I am a professional tattoo artist and plan on being heavily covered. So I do NOT need to hear people bitching about how I'll 'regret it later'. I WON'T. I DO NOT REGRET ANY OF MY TATTOOS! I only live once so I'm doing what makes me happy.. whether you approve or not!
For those of you who have no idea what this "arrow in the knee" business is about - presumably because you've just emerged, bleary-eyed, from your stasis pods - it's a reference to an oft-repeated sound bite from Bethesda's Skyrim [http://www.amazon.com/Elder-Scrolls-V-Skyrim-Pc/dp/B004HYIAPM]. For some reason, town guards - and by this I mean every town guard - will periodically inform the player that they too used to live a life of unfettered freedom and adventure, until their tomb-raiding career was cut tragically short by a crippling knee injury. Haha! You had to give up your dreams and settle for a life of endless drudgery because you were maimed! That's funny.

Damn it I was hoping some crazy fan literally shot himself in the knee. Since that appears to be the only thing that could possibly slow that meme down.

That title was misleading, but the outcome is still satisfying. I'll put this on the list of videogame related tattoos I want to get.

I used to love getting tattoos

Then I took an arrow to the knee.


WHY HAS SOMEONE NOT DONE THAT YET?

I got the meme when it started, I remembered a few guards saying it in Whiterun. Since the meme went crazy, I haven't heard a single guard mention it. This after making 4 new characters and getting them past level 20. Odd.

Dumb tatoo, but she can think the silly things are important to her. So be it.

I used to take arrows in the knee until I became a tattoo artist.

INCEPTION!

OT: Well, if she's never gonna regret it, then props to her. I don't like tattoos, but if I ever had to get one, I'd choose something symbolic that wasn't born from the internet and that will be meaningful for years to come. Not...MEMES.
I have a friend who has some Pikachu tattoos above her boobs. While that might be a geek's fantasy, I cannot help but wonder what her story gonna go like when she's narrating it to her grandchildren.

"Granny, what is that? Is that a tattoo of a raisin?"
"It's called a Pikachu. They became extinct one year after I got this..."

Well, you get the idea.

I've played about the same amount, yet literally I have never heard a guard say the "arrow to the knee" line. Not once. We should start a club or something.

OT: That's nifty. Now she should quit her day job so she can say "I used to be a tattoo artist, but then I took an arrow to the knee. See? It's right here!"

kind of a particularly annoying reference to skyrim. like if it had been some dragon word or badass symbol from the game, i would totally approve. but "arrow to the knee" started to annoy the hell out of me incredibly quickly

A: Lamest Meme ever. I guess everyone was looking around desparately because it had been 6 months since SPAAAAAAAACE with nothing really good/new on the horizon.

B: Is this really news worthy? A dumbass permanently scarred herself for something that is going to become tired and cliched in less than a year?

C: Yes, this is proof people are too stupid for their own good. I would say the only thing more brain dead would be to take an actual arrow in the knee, but hell, at least that would show a level of commitment. This is just going to be a passing fad, resulting in a cartoonish looking scar, that can never resemble what it is supposed to due to lack of depth and will become such an obscure reference that it will have to be explained every single time its viewed.

Congratulations, I have been slain by the arrow of unbounded ignorance that boasts a -50 to faith in humanity.

Props to her..though I don't think I'd ever do something like that.

I try to think like my character when I play, so the first time I heard that line, my thought was. You milk drinking pansy. I've been shot by dozens of arrows, and I'm still adventuring.

Whiterun Guard: My cousins are out there hunting dragons and what do I get? .. Guard duty.
What's better is when you hear a guard say that particular line immediately after he or she was helping you take one down.

On Topic: It's not a bad tattoo, even outside of the Skyrim joke. Least it looks nice, ya' know. Hopefully (though doubtfully) this will close the book on the "arrow to the knee" repeaters. We get it guys, you played Skyrim. Just like everyone else.

The funniest run in with this meme I've had was when surfing a particular site [www.escapistmagazine.com] I visit and like a lot (!) I got a 404 error. Needless to say I was not expecting it and I lost my shit. Curse you web managers!

That's a very ugly looking tattoo.

There is one thing I don't understand about this meme. People play Skyrim for hundreds of hours and they can't memorize that it's "in the knee" not "to the knee"? Seriously? There are people in this topic that made that stupid mistake.

I don't know why, but I find it interesting that a woman was the first to do it. It was bound to happen though.

Though I use to think it wouldn't happen, until I took an arrow to the knee.

You have been here longer than I have. Have you not noticed that The Escapist is a gaming/technology news and entertainment site?

This is called and entertainment news piece. It fits here because it deals with something gaming related and is entertaining because it is funny.

It isn't going to look straight, her leg of course curves slightly, so the arrow shaft will look slightly curved.

If you are talking about the line work in general, it is barely noticeable, and I think it is in a sense more realistic, because the shaft of a medieval arrow isn't going to be exactly smooth and perfect.

Well actually I'm more interested in her other tattoos (She has a lot of bare skin there, where are these tattoos she speaks so fondly of?) and mabye even her face, not her knee and some arrow on it. Other than that it doesn't look remotely close to the artwork of Skyrim, which is a pity really because their artwork is pretty awesome and would provide excellent tattoo material.
What??? No FUS RO DAH Tattoo yet? Shame on you internet!!!

Well at least she won't have to worry about ever commiting to a man(or woman, i don't judge) who has a decent sense of humor ever again.

"Wont'regret it" Sure. Come back and tell me that in 50 years when that arrow's down at your ankel.

Any more remarks i feel i should make... Neh. Nothing beyond the fact that i wish this stupid meme would just shoot both its own knees with crossbow bolts and retire before anyone else takes another step into the ridiculous.

Fine by me. She could tattoo a giant horrendous portrait of Carrot Top on her ass and I wouldn't call her an idiot, all it matters to in the end is her.

And what's the bigger meme these days? Arrow to the knee, or acting jaded about memes? Just like any other joke, it's going to get worn out when repeatedly abused. Imagine that one friend you have that makes a decent joke, thinks it's hilarious to repeat it but then just goes too far a few too many times and takes just a little too long to realize it. Multiply that by a few million and there we have the Internet. You also have to consider a lot of folks aren't around as often as others, discovered it later than others, so it's all very subjective in the end.

I like that one. Head it uttered by one of the Riften guards (at the north gate), shortly before I killed him and his friend for not letting my in the posh gate. It must have been the dramatic pause inbetween the two words the second time he say "curved swords".

Though not funny enough to stop me racking up a 15000+ gold bounty in Riften.

I wonder who actually thought this phrase deserved being a meme in the first place. It's not like it can even be applied to different situations like that old favourite, "I never asked for this"...

I have no problems with the tattoo myself though. She could have done much worse.

While you all might call it "tattooing a jaded meme", I call it "long-term planning for when the joke becomes retro". Should be just a year or two.

So it's either trolling, or parroting.

I think people have a right to get pissy about seeing memes everywhere. It's spam, pure and simple. A person can get a warning on this site for low content posts, but posting something as worthless as an arrow to the knee joke is fine. That makes no sense.

A good point. I don't think a lot of people get that the endless repetition, and the fact that self-described cynics seem to take the meme personally, is part of the joke.
So it's either trolling, or parroting.

I think people have a right to get pissy about seeing memes everywhere.
That they do, and I have a right to laugh at them.

I wish the arrow wasn't so cartoonish...nobody would know its a skyrim reference if they saw that tattoo.

I used to think the arrow in the knee meme was funny but then bethesda studios actually shot me in the knee with an arrow and asked me how i liked it now... EIther way, the title here is misleading.

I've been so desensitized by the meme that when guards say it... meh. I now kill any guard that regurgitates it.

Really dumbass move. You want something on your body that means something to you, not a dumb joke that wasn't funny in the first place. Almost like getting the Cake is a Lie on your back. Now if she wanted videogame ink, why not something she used to play all the time as kid.

I'm sorry, but did I miss something? How did something an NPC said become this "hilarious"? I didn't even know something could be so incredibly unfunny.

Wow... some people's sense for humor must be dead for a long time to find this meme funny at all.

She can talk all she wants, but she will regret it in less than a month.

Thing is, this meme isn't funny. It's just an obnoxious reference to a game. There are funny memes that are still worth bringing up. That's why the instant backlash because using it in another context feels contrived.

And I don't know why I'm intellectualizing the whole affair.

I love all the people that are bitching over this tattoo and have since said she will regret it. I'm quite positive she knows her interests better than we do considering we don't actually know anything about her.

Love how people on the internet always seem to know what's best for people and situations they know nothing about.

We are aware that taking an arrow in the knee would likely cut arteries or veins or damage you in some way much like being shot would do and thus you would die?

This meme makes no sense if all that encounter it inevitably die.

That's not true, a person could easily survive an arrow to the knee. Now if they could still walk afterwards is a different story.

That's like people saying you could survive a bullet to the knee or the foot or the leg or the left side of the chest and be fine... and the military proved that one wrong with a lot of documents and doctors.

I don't think you know much about how veins work.

Well, if she's planning on completely covering herself in tattoos, then she can definitely afford to put some silly memes onto her skin. She's a professional tattoo artist, so she is clearly devoted to her tattoos. Under her circumstances, I find this perfectly reasonable. I hope that she finds success in her tattoo business and gets a small laugh whenever she looks at her knee.

"Funny" is a matter of perspective. One person's funny is another's insufferable. Besides, in my opinion the funniest thing about the arrow in the knee meme is the fact that it makes so many people so incredibly indignant.

But that's just my opinion.

So, you think no one has taken a shot to the knee and survived? Depending on how you tend to the wound afterwards greatly influences if you die or not. A bullet is a little different because chances are that the bullet would go straight through your knee. An arrow is more likely to stop midway ( depend on the distance and kind of arrow you use ). Even then a person could get their entire leg cut off and still survive depending on the circumstance. The most important thing to do in a situation like that is to stop the bleeding, with just an arrow to the knee it's not very hard to do . Of course you would bleed out given time, but once you stop ( or at least slow down ) , your survival rate increases .

Taking a shot to the knee , foot or leg is easily treatable ( and yes you will die if it's not tended to )but it doesn't mean instant death. A shot to the chest is a little more complicated because you could pierce a vital organ.

To be honest, if I were to ever get a tatoo, it would probably be one like Carpe Diem, (Seize the Day) NOT an internet meme. I don't even get why it's so popular.

And just for the Hell of it, I used to think this joke was funny, then I took common sense to the face.

Yeah because this screams security with oneself.

Stupid tattoo, most likely odd woman.

People don't get tattoos because they are insecure about their appearance and different tattoos mean different things to different people. Just because you wouldn't get a tattoo it doesn't mean that people who do are 'idiots.

Hrm. I think you got me wrong there. Not only do I have ink. I have designed ink for other people. I do not assume people with tattoos are idiots. I said that this woman is proof that people in general are too stupid for their own good by defacing herself with a moronic meme that will loose relevance in less than 5 years, does not look good, and will fail to convey the message it was intended to make.

Tattoos arent a sign of idiocy. What some people do with them is. If you need proof look no further than http://ugliesttattoos.failblog.org/

Further proof that most tattoo lovers are nothing but freaks who are desperate for attention. I mean, if the tattoo was any good, I could at least appreciate the art, but holy hell, that is one ugly drawn arrow and entry wound.

She's a tattoo artist ... You do realize to practice regularly they have to perform on themselves because it's a liability to do it on other. Besides, by the sounds of things she's just doing it for a bit of fun. It also appear to be done in a cartoonish manner on purpose, perhaps she didn't want to ink a pictorial of a gaping wound on her leg so she took a more stylized version?

I get that you have to practice to improve your art, use pigskin or just plain paper for that. Also, I saw that it was supposed to be a lighthearted, cartoonish arrow, but it's still ugly (in my opinion, all rights reserved).

Personally when I see this, I don't have some stupid meme pop into my head, I just remember the game Skyrim and that's what I'm assuming she's likely thinking as well. Gaming can be a strong passion for some people, if one has a collection of tattoo's on their body displaying their passions who are we to judge. I'm certain no one would be bitching if they had a triforce inked on their body somewhere (Ok a lie but it would be far less bitching)

Also, A friend of mine is a tattoo artist, the reason they have to experiment on themselves isn't so much that they have to make the stencil, it's how you etch it into the skin and how you deal with the curves of the human body and the texture of the skin. he explained it further but I don't quite remember all of it.

This thread is about a Skyrim fan, who is also a tattoo artist who took a drawn arrow to the knee. I don't care much for her reasons, whether it's passion or plain sillyness. I threw my two cents into the hat, and with all respect to you, your tattoo artist friend and the topic person, I really don't like tattoos.
I appreciate the art when it's well done, and can even admire it, but not on flesh. Creeps me out. :)

And yeah, at one point you have to bite the bullet and experiment on a real person. All the more reason for me to not even attempt it.

It's all good, I have no desire for tattoo's myself but, like you I just wanted to convey what I thought. I'm pretty sure both of us aren't keen for an argument because we both understand where each others coming from so I'll just wish you a good day and a tip of my hat. Cya :D

To get such a meaningless tattoo is just stupid, and to coat your body with tats? Well either you are Yakuza, or you hate your body otherwise why deface it with a load of poorly done and usually meaningless artwork? Did Monet or the Masters ever use flesh as a canvas? No, they didn't. I rest my case.

Your case is pretty much wrong and did not prove a thing. Just because YOU don't think tattoos are worth it doesn't mean it's worthless to someone else. But coming from you, if it doesn't agree with your point of view then its wrong.

Though I guess this is going to go on deaf ears once again and your just going to say "everyone who disagrees with me is immature and/or is moron and will never be able to work in the office.

(Btw, how many people actually do work in a office? Perhaps that's not their cup of tea)

You still haven't admitted that mature means "for adults" by the way.

And if I'm 'pretty much wrong' please find me the Water Lillies done on a mans chest...

Many people work in an office. That's the real world and it's alarming to see you are even asking such a question.

*Sigh* Working at the office doesn't = real world. There are also tons of people who work other places as well. Not just the office. I guess to you, those jobs don't count right? Also whats counts as a office job? What is your job by the way? Do you work at a office, and if you don't then I guess you are not doing a great job in this world of yours.

Also, how does it mean your "right" if a old artist never use flesh as a canvas. Artist normally like to show off their work. It can't be shown off if its made on the flesh, it wouldn't make sense. Also who the hell cares if someone likes to cover their body with tattoos. What if they like having it and enjoy it. Though I guess you can't think outside of your close-minded brain.

By the way, this picture sums up you perfectly.

It kind of does at most environments prior to the office are usually ignorant bubbles, such as education, where you can get away with being odd and people aren't allow to state so as "it's mean" or some other juvenille retort.

Most people work in an office...The majority who don't are looking at a future where they will be replaced by robots. Oh wait, this isn't the 1950's and that's become a reality.

Artits look for challenges, hence Cubism and other styles of art. They rarely do their work to show off...
This isn't about caring who covers their body in ink, it's about asking why, a question you seem to be terrified of asking. You like things for reasons and it is those reasons that I am interested about; it's called analysing something. How is asking "why" being close-minded? I say not asking that question is being willfully ignorant.
Until you learn you can't argue with a dictionary, I really don't care what your opinion of me is.

You are close minded because you can't even just let someone enjoy it. Why do they need a reason? Perhaps they enjoy getting tattoos like she said before, but no you have to go on saying that their is something wrong with her. People like to do things because they ENJOY it. Why do I play video games? Cause I like to. I don't need a good reason for it. People get tattoos because they like it. My cousin is planning on getting a 3rd one. Why? because he likes tattoos.

Plus, we are talking about different types of mature, which again you refuse to listen to. Yes, mature means adult. But what about behavior? Tons of movies are rated R (To be view by adults), or MA and can be very immature. How? By the jokes, how they tell the story, or how the character themselves act. Just because somethings is suppose to be view by adults doesn't mean its mature itself.

Again, all you do is just pick out a few things within the post to fit your need. I'm sure if you did this in the office world or by the matter ANY kind of job you will most likely get fired for it.

Real world /= Office Job.

Not every single person is gonna get a comfy office job. A lot more are going to be waitress, repair man, lawyer, judge, doctor, etc. There tons of jobs out there so saying "everyone is gonna have a office job" is naive.

OT: I don't see what the big deal is. If she enjoys the tattoo then let her enjoy it. I personal don't think its that great, but hey if she likes it then good for her.

Being close minded has nothing to do with letting someone enjoy something; it's to do with reasoning and justification. I ask a simple question and you are unable, or unwilling, to answer it. That does not make me close-minded.
You do not ask "why?" and refuse to for some reason. To get a tattoo which will date horribly quickly shows possibly lack of foresight, and then with the addition of more tattoos, well, if she liked how she looked why would she want to change it so radically? This is the "why" you are not asking and refuse to look at.
Why do you like video games? "CUZ I LIK 2!". No, that's you not thinking about the "why" again. I like games because of the challenge they provide and the escapism. You are not an animal and do not run on impulse yet that is how you are portraying yourself.
I am talking about the word mature. That is the only thing that matters, not your own meaningless idea of the word. You are not in any way qualified to go head-to-head with the dictionary. Made for adults = mature. FACT. Get over it.
I'm doing fine in the office world thanks. How am I just picking parts? I'm addressing everything you say.
The real world isn't just the office, but it is part of the real world. I didn't say everyone is going to have an office job. And lawyers spend most of their time in offices. And do you really think that doctors, lawyers and judges are in the same quantity as office workers??
Ironic you mention naviety.
You aren't thinking about this at all. Ask why is she getting the tattoo and then if it is a good idea or not, not that as long as it makes the person happy it's fine, because then you open up a very morally dubious door. Sorry to say, but life and morallity is a lot more complex then in the cartoons you watch.

You are such a moron its not even fun. I like games because its fun. Maybe you need some deep meaning for everything you do but a lot of people don't. Also getting a tattoo is not even hurting anyone. So I don't see the huge problem with someone just liking it.

Though I'm done talking about you in this subject.Life is FULL of regrets. There no way we can go through life over thinking ever little thing. Also the reason I bring up the office thing is because you seem to brag about it so much and that's the only thing.

It seem your the one who needs help in the world. Always judging people for what they like or what they do. Since you also didn't even ask why she like getting tattoo. Just

"I'm defacing my body to make myself happy"
Yeah because this screams security with oneself.

Stupid tattoo, most likely odd woman.
So good job with acting mature there and "trying" to understand why she was getting a tattoo like you said you were doing. Good day "kid". I hope you learn in life not to judge people for what they like or do all the time. But sadly you probably won't.

Edit: By the way, it seem you have a security problem yourself since all you seem to do is judge people. I wonder why, is it to make yourself feel better?
Why do you find games fun though? What scares you so much you don't, and won't, ask 'why'?
Are you really saying it's a flaw for wanting to understand the mentality and reasoning behind someone and their thoughts?

Life isn't full of regrets...It only is if you don't think about what you are doing and refuse to learn from your mistakes. Would I do things differently? Sure. But I've learnt from the past so I don't regret it. Makes me wonder what on earth you are talking about. I have never bragged about the office but simply brought it to your attention as it's generally an unavoidable inevetability.

I'm not judging; I'm asking why. What's wrong with that?

How is that comment immature? It makes sense, so then what makes it immature? You simply sound terrified of being judged yourself and being seen for who you are, hence why you don't want anyone, not even yourself, to question your actions.

It's nothing to do with making myself feel better. I simply like to understand things and hate liars.

Last post. Just to tell you that I am not afraid of anything. I just don't think that we need to go so deep thinking of why people like things. Why do I like games? Just because their fun to me. Do I need another reason? Hell no, maybe you doc but I do not.

What part of that don't you understand? Not everyone has a deep meaning of why they do things. I play games cause they are fun to play. I mean do you do this with food as well? Question everyone who has a favorite. Anyways don't bother replying cause I will not answer. As I said before, you don't read the post or ignore it anyways.

Why won't you ask why? No wonder you think life is full of regret if you have such a shallow stance on self-reflection. Plus, it's another trait that will certainly not help you in the working world as it shows a lack of foresight in analysing anything & everything.

Everyone has a deep meaning for why they do things because people are not implusive; this is what seperates humans from other animals. You play games because if offers you something which knitting, or painting etc does not. It is odd that you will not ask yourself what qualities makes gaming fun for yourself; it shows you truly do not know yourself.
You like different foods for different reasons. I'm sure that if you enjoy a curry it'll be for different reasons that you may enjoy chocolate.
I read your posts and reply to them whereas you never ever answer my posts by indirectly mention my points but never answer them fully. All you are showing is someone who doesn't know themselves, whilst enjoys immature cartoons, and then you have the audacity to question why I then think you may have problems in an office.

Always wanted to get a tattoo and I will finally be getting mine in 1-2 months. But this is just ridiculous, a tattoo should have meaning or atleast look well done. This is just a badly arrow entry wound on your knee.

I would never get a tattoo of a meme. Meme's get old pretty fast hell the "arrow to the knee" jokes have already been done to death in my opinion. And that would be something you would have to live with for your rest of your life.

He seems happy with it so good for him, but I would NEVER get a tattoo like that.

God, if I see someone with this tattoo on the streets I'm going to shoot a real arrow in their knee. It's not a joke, I will seriously do it, I already have a bow and I know how to use it.

Congratulations, you got a permanent tattoo of a joke that will be old in three months. Why not get one of a lolcat while you're at it?

Mommy, why is there an arrow in your knee? *Mom* Never mind sweet heart, never mind...

On that note -
I used to think the cake was a lie, then I took an arrow to the knee and passed out. Then the philosoraptor came to me in a dream, and told me otherwise.

OT, this is one of the goofiest things I've seen online in a long while...

That's just weird.
The meme has only just been made and a tattoo is there for life. Someone just seems desperate for some attention.

I wonder if there're people who get tattoos of all those crude Paint faces used in meme comics, or the 'Yo dawg' one and the like.

I can't say I care in any possible way about what other people do to their bodies but a random meme is a pretty stupid idea for a tattoo.

OT: It's interesting I guess. I never really understood memes or why people repeat them ad nauseum, and especially why you would want to permanently place them on your skin. I am not against tattoos in general, but I think you should get one that has a timeless quality. This will be forgotten by the time the TES 6 comes out.

Recently, a guard in Whiterun made the "arrow to the knee" remark as I walked by. I immediately equipped my bow and some arrows, and shot him in the knee. It was totally worth the forty Septim fine.

I think that tattoo looks pretty good actually, plus it'll earn her major Internet Points in like three years.
