Amy's obscene tattoo

First appearance"A Fishful of Dollars" (1ACV06)

Amy showed her obscene tattoo to the rest of the Planet Express crew in Historic 20th Century Apartments in 3000 after making a remark about the low-definition TVs of the 20th century (1ACV06). We cannot see it clearly due to our primitive technology, but it appears to consist of two red figures, possibly Decapodians.

Additional Info


  • Amy's obscene tattoo exists as a prank on the audience by being deliberately blurred, poking fun at the dominant low-definition TVs on which the episode was likely viewed at the time it aired. However, subsequent years saw the rapid rise of plasma and LCD high-definition TVs, removing some of the humor from the joke for anyone watching on a high-definition TV. Though the argument could be made that the necessary viewing methods won't exist for 1,000 years.
  • Amy also has a talking tattoo (4ACV16) and a moving tattoo (6ACV04).


    Bender: Hey! Get a load of this pathetic 20th-century TV!
    Fry: What's wrong with it?
    Bender: Well, aside from causing eye cancer, these things had a lousy low-definition picture.
    Amy: That's true. On a TV like this, I bet you couldn't even make out my obscene tattoo.
    [Amy rolls her sleeve up to reveal her obscene tattoo, which appears blurred. Bender whistles and Leela chuckles.]
    Leela: That's cute!
