So you survived the great Northeast earthquake of 2011, now what? You’re going to want people to know you were there when it all went down. How about a tattoo?

That might sound a bit too permanent, but that’s exactly what Jonathan Berg of Brooklyn got on his torso the day after the quake. Tattoo artist Joe Khay of Citizen Ink in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn originally advertised the tattoo he designed as a joke on Facebook, but people actually ended up taking him up on the offer.

In Berg’s defense, he justifies it as a humorous response to the intense reaction of most people to the minor tremors that shook New York.
