Rhett McLaughlin shows off new tattoo

On Tuesday (11 January), as part of Good Mythical Morning’s sister series Good Mythical More, Rhett revealed he got a new tattoo. The inking is of the Voyager 1 space probe, which was launched alongside the Voyager 2 into space in 1977. According to NASA‘s website, both space crafts were launched to explore “where nothing from Earth has flown before.”

In the video, Rhett explained he connected to the story behind the Voyager 1 personally as he was born in 1977, the same year it launched. He also noted that when Voyager 1 made history as it reached interstellar space in 2012, that was also a poignant time for him as he left his faith. 

He later added he has plans to get other tattoos in the future: “So there it is the beginning of what will hopefully a large sleeve of tattoos.”
