Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy has an extremely loyal fanbase. Everyone has their favorite character; weather the moronic Peter, the lecherous Quagmire, the menacing Stewie, or one of the dozens of other regular characters. For many fans it was a shock a few weeks ago when the Griffin's family dog, the boozy struggling writer Brian, was killed off. However, MacFarlane and company had no intentions of keeping Brian dead, bringing him back apparently for good in this past Sunday's Christmas episode.
One fan apparently should have waited in expressing his grief. An image showing the beloved character, martini in hand with the scroll "RIP" is now permanently tattooed to this fan's arm. While it is not unusual for fans of an iconic performer who has passed to get an image tattooed, if the world of comic books and cartoons have taught us anything, these character rarely stay dead.
