Normally something that's as easy to overlook as a vegan at Fashion Week, tattoos were at the crux of the plot line on last night's episode of Jersey Shore. The "meatballs" got temporary ones while Vinny completely redesigned his chest with the permanent variety. Also of note: The cast wore a lot of color, maybe because (can a show with no plot have spoilers?) Vinny came back to the house, rearing and ready to go to Karma and find someone random to have sex with, and everyone's spirits were high again. See those highlights, last night's pink trend, and more clothes worn in the latest episode in the slideshow.
The Situation, Pauly D, JWOWW, and Sammi
Pink, perhaps better known as Real Beverly Hills Housewife Lisa Vanderpump's favorite color, is the trend of the week. Well, unless you're Mike and it's more neon-salmon, if you want to get technical about it. OR if you're Ronnie ...
...who explored the big, wide world of purple, even when he didn't have to wear his bright purple T-shirt uniform to do whatever he does that somehow qualifies as work (waffle-press shirts?) at the Shore Store.
T-shirts That Are Actually for Sale
As a fashion business owner, the boss of the Shore Store and the cast's landlord has to be just thrilled with life right now. He's probably rolling in it, right? And this is why: He let MTV pair him up with some loud, drunk weirdos, tolerated them, and then made the most base-level graphic T-shirts with their names on it. He's the T-shirt equivalent of a food stamp president.
What does he think he's doing? Going to play golf? In a Hooter's parking lot?
Deena and Snooki
No, that's not last night's vomit encrusted on their arms, but rather a set of spray-on tattoos acquired on the boardwalk.
Snooki and Deena (not necessarily in that order)
Don't you love how New York people and models who want to be cool and get tattoos — but don't actually want to commit to a tattoo and are just doing it because they're cool — get the tiniest almost imperceptible star on their ankle or behind their ear or something, and Deena and/or Snooki just went all-out with temporary purple stars all over her arms? Is this finally a good-enough reason for the tiny "I can't commit to a tattoo" tattoo to be put to rest? You know, aside from the fact that the people who have those clearly didn't want them to begin with.
Snooki and Deena (not necessarily in that order)
You mean commenters probably want to make a joke about their rabbit faces being [insert adjective here] than their regular faces.
A lot more attractive than most of the girls they bring home, one can't help but notice.
Realizing the stripper is much more attractive than the girls he usually convinces to come home with him, Mike persuades this one to come back to the house. She's the best girl anyone's ever brought home because she had herself together enough (read: seemed kind of sober) to promptly and thoroughly ridicule Mike's nasty socks.
Based on his past references to Axe Body Spray, I assume that's what's being sprayed inside his pants (ugh, sorry) here. Now we know his grooming secrets, guys!
Pauly D. and his Birthday Sex
The floral print is kind of on-trend, and so fabulously not tattoolike, so that elevates her image-wise, despite her hooking up with Pauly D who seems perfectly happy with McDonald's — rather than holding out for the filet — when it comes to sleeping around.
She and the clever stipper have the same dress.
So after JWOWW ripped Deena's hair extensions out in that scene that was basically this show's equivalent of open-heart surgery in terms of feeling like you couldn't watch, did Deena replace the missing chunks with white My Little Pony hair?
Seeing Vinny's big tattoo reveal when the whole cast breaks into his house and forces him to return to the Shore makes one wonder if he really left so that he could get this tattoo in peace, as opposed to doing it when all the roommates are around giving him shit for it. However! While Ronnie admits he doesn't understand what the hell "Let Go Let God" means, and why Vinny got it so hugely tattooed across his breasts, Deena says she thinks Vinny looks "phenomenal." A lot can happen when someone leaves for like four days.
The "Free Vinny" tees were a nice touch. Not that it makes up for him sending drunk girls home at four in the morning with no shoes, but it's something.
