Some moments, everyone knows. Other great moments, however, might go unnoticed to the everyday fan. True fans know the series like the back of their hand, and can most likely recount every single hilarious line of the show. Trying to narrow down the best one-liners and scenes from the show is near impossible, but it's safe to say if you would get a joke from The Office tattooed on your body, it must be pretty funny. Here are 10 tattoos inspired by The Office, which only true fans will understand.
10 Save Bandit
Dwight Shrute is many things, but he isn't always too bright. When nobody in the office gives his fire safety seminar the time of day, he decides to put their skills to the test by creating small fires in the office and locking doors.
What he thinks will be a great lesson, turns into a frantic mess. People start throwing things out of the office windows, and Oscar decides to climb into the air vents to get help.
In all of the chaos, Angela pleads to Oscar to save her cat, Bandit, which she was keeping in one of her desk drawers. She proceeds to throw Bandit into the ceiling only for him to come tumbling right back down. This tattoo captures the moment all too perfectly. One of the top three openers of the show for sure.
9 The Nard Dog
Andy Bernard, aka the Nard Dog, is special for many reasons. Nobody can forget his anger issues, singing abilities, and the many nicknames he loves to give out. Perhaps the best is the one he gives himself, Nard Dog.
Andy acts like a little puppy most of the time anyway. He's always lightly confused, hungry, or upset that things didn't go his way. No matter what though, you still love him simply for just being himself.
8 CPR Dwight
When Stanley has a heart attack during Dwight's fire safety plot, the members of the office have to partake in some CPR training.
While a sweet woman attempts to teach the workers the importance and details of how to perform chest compressions, Dwight decides once again to take the matter into his own hands. He proceeds to tear apart the CPR dummy and wear the face of it like a mask over his own. And while it is totally messed up and twisted, it is also one of the funniest moments of the show. A perfect moment to permanently mark on your body, definitely.
In the 7th season of The Office, we see Michael Scott attend his last Dundies Awards. It is truly a bittersweet moment and a real tearjerker. Although Michael may do some questionable things as a boss, and a person, seeing him go was hard for everyone.
The rest of the office members decided to pay him a sweet tribute for his last ever Dundies. They banded together and sang their own rendition of Rent's 'Season of Love'; 9,986,000 minutes. This is the amount of time Michael worked at Dunder Mifflin.
6 World's Best Boss
In the Pilot episode of the show, Michael Scott is seen holding his " World's Best Boss" mug, proudly stating that he got it from Spencer's Gifts.
It comes up in various episodes throughout the rest of the series, but it really just sets up the character of Michael Scott so well. He truly does believe he is the world's best boss, and we really can't disagree with him. He has his ups and downs, probably too many downs to count. But you got to love him anyway.
5 The Stapler
Watching Jim Halpert repeatedly play pranks on Dwight Schrute is one of the very best things about The Office. Dwight is just so weird, Jim can't get enough of it. It is really too easy to pull pranks on him.
One of Jim's best, was when he put Dwight's stapler in jello. This really is a staple joke of the show - see what we did there. Truly, this prank never gets old, and the "Dammit Jim" above the stapler is really just the icing on the cake.
4 Soft Pretzels
There's nobody quite like Stanley. He is sassy and quick-witted, but an overall quiet fellow. He keeps to himself most times, but the day we really get to see him shine is on soft pretzel day. This is the day that the office building which Dunder Mifflin is located in hosts a soft pretzel stand.
Pretzel day is a break from a job that Stanley claims he does not get paid near enough for. Pretzel day is a reason for him to actually go into work for the day and it gives him more motivation than anything else could. We are all Stanley, really.
3 That's What She Said
Michael loves to throw in the occasional (okay it's all the time) 'that's what she said' joke. However, half of the time he really doesn't understand the format of the joke. Other times he does get it, and he takes it way too far.
He always wants to say it at the most inappropriate times, but that's what makes it that much better. It's a classic joke all over the world, therefore the perfect tattoo.
2 A Little Stitious
One of Michael's best quotes. During his interview segments, we learn many many things about Michael Scott. Many of these things nobody asked to know.
However, in one of his more funny moments, Michael told the camera once that he wasn't superstitious. No, he wasn't superstitious, however, he was a little stitious. Which honestly...we get it, Michael.
1 Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica
As previously stated, Jim's jokes on Dwight really never get old. Another classic was the day Jim dressed up as Dwight and came into the office acting like him.
Of course, this threw Dwight off and had him throwing a temper tantrum. Jim stayed in character very well, and nobody can forget that classic line, "Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica."
It is a The Office signature, and what's even better is the bear is made up to look like Dwight. 10/10 tattoo.
