Chumlee from 'Pawn Stars'

I Paid to See a Samurai

FIGHT a Tiger

8/11/2011 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0810_chum_lee_tattoo_launch_EX_WM_v2"Pawn Stars" badass Chumlee tells TMZ, he has ALWAYS wanted to see a samurai versus a tiger in a fight to the death -- so he did what any person would do in that situation ... he paid a tattoo artist to ink the violent scene on his leg.

According to Chum, he's already sat through three lengthy sessions at Show Room Tattoo in Vegas -- and he's still got about ten more hours of inkwork to go.
It should be completed soon -- but Chum's not looking forward to more needle-to-skin contact ... telling us, "To those who say it doesn't hurt to get tattoos, stop lying! Every time I go it hurts worse!!"

I have no clue who this guy is but, he seems a little wimpy to me, tattoos don't hurt that bad geesh! Saying that I am a little saddened with humanity after reading these posts and wondering why all of these people think it is alright to insult someone just because they are a little heavy I guess everyone of these people must have a perfect body or something LOL

There are no tigers in Japan. There are no samurai in India.

That Chumlee is a fat, unintelligent, moron. All he does on the show is sit there with his eyes half closed breathing all hard. He is just so stupid about just about everything

Looks like he should probably have spent the money on a gym membership instead of a tattoo.

Yeah Chumlee isn't stupid, he is just in character in the show.

Real men don't wear flip flops. I'll bet we'd see a matching fanny pack if we had a full view of ol' Chumlee.

BTW, the tiger was the emblem of the Japanese Samurai. Although tigers were found in Korea and China, their hides were bought/sold in Japan. Japanese Tiger Art comes from the imagination and/or interpretation of what these strong beasts would look like in life to these artists. The Japanese Tiger is prevelant in Tattoo history.

So many haters on here. Chum seems like a cool guy. And no, not everyone can get a traditional Japanese tattoo the Japanese tattoo way.

That is mega, mega nasty. And I don't like the tats either. Isn't this guy ugly enough without that??? Amazing what some people will watch on tv.
