Deadmau5 Livestreams Himself Getting Tattoo of a PUBG Esports Meme In a Very Painful Spot

EDM Music star and avid gamer Deadmau5 recently got a tattoo to mock PUBG esports right on the back of his hand – and livestreamed the whole thing.

Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, is famous for his many EDM hits, including Strobe and ‘Ghosts N Stuff’, but is also known to be a keen gamer.

He even occasionally streams on Amazon owned platform Twitch, where, in addition to making music live, he is also found playing a variety of games, most commonly PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).

But, on May 21st, he took his camera out with him to do a rare ‘In Real Life’ (IRL) stream – of him getting a very… interesting tattoo.

Despite being voted Esports Game of the Year at the SXSW awards, Deadmau5 clearly disagrees, tattooing the words ‘ESPORTS READY’ (we presume sarcastically) next to the infamous PUBG ‘frying pan’.

And Deadmau5 didn’t make it easy on himself, getting the tattoo directly on the back of his hand – a notoriously painful spot to get inked.

Considering some of his other tattoos, it is not so surprising that he would ink what is essentially a gaming meme on such a prominent spot on his body.

He also has tats about Nyan Cat and Space Invaders, making his PUBG ‘Esports Ready’ one just the latest in a line of his gaming related body art.

You can watch Deadmau5 stream PUBG and other games on his personal Twitch Channel, and watch the full gruelling 40 plus minute ordeal as he gets a very painful PUBG tattoo below.
