Vice Staffers Get Some Cool Tattoos to Promote Freedom in RussiaS

Members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in prison for "hooliganism" for staging an anti-Putin protest. The sentence was clearly an outrage, and drew worldwide protests. The most meaningful reaction of all: that of Vice magazine staffers in Brooklyn. They got some tattoos—Russian tattoos. READ IT AND WEEP, PUTIN.

Here's the story complete with cool photos, for your admiration. Now, several Vice staffers have tattoos that say "hooligan" in Russian. So.

The tattoos about Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tibet, Western Sahara, Belarus, Burma, Chad, China, Cuba, Laos, Libya, and South Ossetia are going to take up a lot of space, but nobody said freedom fighting would be easy.
