Sometimes over a beer (or five), dudes like to share their battle scars – and we think this guy probably takes the trophy with his story.

Yes, this guy got branded at the mighty hands of Zeus. He is sporting what is referred to as a Lichtenberg Figure, a marking made by the electrical discharge resulting from a lightning strike. Unfortunately for his street cred it looks like he just made the unfortunate decision to allow his hippie girlfriend to apply some flowery henna to his arm.

The patterns typically only last for a few hours or days. We’re thinking he should get into a tattoo parlor ASAP and make the temporary more permanent.

Who knows, it could be a new craze that has hipsters standing out in lightning storms waiting for a Lichtenberg Figure of their very own (and if we lose a few hipsters to the trend so be it.)
