This amazing Flick tattoo I saw at the Starbucks drive thru today! (Don’t worry, I asked if I could take a picture ☺️)

"Flick and Cj are business partners." - Nintendo

and they were business partners


JarretTheParrot

Oh my god they were business partners


thatweirdrabbit

YES! Thank you! I was waiting 2 hours for someone to do this!


JarretTheParrot

Hell yeah

TWO BROS CHILLING ON AN ISLAND 5 FEET APART BECAUSE THEY'RE PROBABLY GAY


PolymerPussies

Something is *fishy* about this business relationship and it's really *bugging* me.


LiberalMusicLover

Just like David and Patrick on *Schitt’s Creek…*

~~business~~ partners

Flick and their business partner


WangoBango

They can be both


txr23

Not according to official canon they can't :)


WangoBango

If you're referring to the "roommates" thing in the official handbook or guide or whatever, that is not a confirmation or definitive proof of anything. Honestly, that sounds like stereotypical sidestepping of a potentially polarizing topic. May as well just say "we can neither confirm, nor deny."


txr23

We can in fact confirm that they aren't gay because Nintendo as a company has a pretty long track record of avoiding heavy references to sexuality in their games. Selling their products to middle class America (and more recently China) is more important to their company than representation is. So until their internal philosophy changes Flick and CJ will never be anything more than friends who also happen to be business partners.


mama_llama

There are Nintendo games where you can be gay such as Fire Emblem Three Houses.


txr23

Fire Emblem is third party title. You can be gay in plenty of games on Nintendo (Stardew Valley also comes to mind), but you won't find any first party titles that make references to homosexuality.


anxiety_ftw

That Mii RPG game can have gay characters.


mightystu

I can’t believe people are downvoting the objective truth just because it conflicts with their head canon. Believe whatever you want but let’s not be delusional here.


txr23

The AC community is just really protective of their gay bug man and his fish slave boy 😂


WangoBango

I don't think you know what "objective" actually means. Unless you've seen something that Nintendo and/or the ACNH creators has put out that explicitly states they are not a romantic couple.


9BitHooligan

"Oh my God... they were business partners..."

My dumb ass somehow thought that Flick is female.


Bunchuba

I thought the exact same thing from when I first saw him haha


tekylasunrise

Started in March 2020. June 2020, is when I realized Flick was not a female.


HollowTree734

They really said that? I thought the game was hinting at what everyone thinks they are


soapysales

The New Horizons guide states that they are roommates. :/ Sometimes parents are the last to see the signs.


RegisPhone

i mean being roommates in a universe where there's absolutely no financial reason for it because it only costs $500 to get your own house and literally everyone will get approved for an interest-free no-deadline mortgage is basically a confirmation, isn't it?

MelynasTheSaphire

i just wanted to tell you that your comments made me laugh. sorry about the downvotes you’re getting


Every3Years

People take made up lore VERY seriously here


DoFlwrsExistAtNight

Yeah, i thought it was funny 🤷‍♀️


john_jdm

Sometimes you just have to accept the downvotes. Actually I never delete my own comments because of downvotes. Being in the negative doesn't mean no one liked your comment. It's too bad that reddit doesn't let you see both your up & down votes, or that they even count downvotes as a negative number in the first place. To me the worst comments are the ones that elicit no response at all (except for troll comments of course).


bromst_

you used to be able to see vote ratios on every post and comment. people freaked when they started hiding that but now it's been away so long it's a relic of the past. sometimes you'd see a comment at around 0 points, but with tooons of upvotes and downvotes, sometimes done on purpose just to keep the vote neutral. haha aaanyway, take a freshly baked cookie here for listening to one of grandma's old stories

fun fact: you don't have to fuck to be gay

I think it's really funny that everyone has decided Flick and CJ are gay, and Nintendo can't do anything about it at this point

This post is sending me 😂 I love it so much


Matthiasad

Flick has a very non-binary feel to them in my opinion


WangoBango

Doesn't he refer to himself as a guy? I feel like at some point he does. Or maybe CJ does?


newyearnewcakeday

None of the animals in New Horizons use pronouns. Not sure if Flick was in another game to check there but it’s impossible to know in NH


miladymondegreen

You can be transmasc and non-binary, like Elliot Page.


WangoBango

Yeah, but if he refers to himself as a he, wouldn't that mean he prefers male pronouns?


RoundCat

He pronouns enbys are valid! Likewise, femboys are also valid!


WangoBango

Yeah, they're all valid. I just tend to go with the pronouns the person in question uses themselves. Obviously, this would all be a lot easier if we weren't talking about a fictional character and could just ask them what they prefer.


NoxRose

I don't understand your downvotes. I absolutely agree with you.


RoundCat

Eh, Talk anything gender nonconformity in a non lgbt sub, and your guaranteed a few. I'm just glad most of the Animal Crossing community is cool with it. :)


CottonCandyLollipops

They can unfortunately, I can totally see them never adding Brewster but adding a pink curvy lizard into the game as his wife (Sally seashell, it's like bug hunt except for diving) so the game sells more in China or something :/


ZiggyPalffyLA

I really hope they don’t pull a Disney and shoehorn a female love interest for one of them into a sequel like Disney did with Poe and Finn 🙄


sleppy123

See I do just becouse it would shut the community up.


polocapfree

Right like who cares


Phil8show

The west is real good at covering up Nintendos "agenda". Its happened a LOT in many past games. Just let us have lgbtq+ animals, America! Gawsh


uncommonpanda

FYI. Homosexual marriage is still technically illegal in Japan. Homosexuality is primarily accepted as a fetish by the Japanese public, but not as a way of life. If you want to get angry, send a letter to Miyamoto.


Phil8show

I'm not sure what made you think i was mad at anyone. Figured the GAWSH would have given away my facetiousness. All im saying is that there are usually tons of lgbtq characters in Nintendo games and when they come over here they get edited out. That's all.


uncommonpanda

What do you think is going on? All of a sudden the US Government swoops in puts a gun to Nintendo's head and tells them to take out whatever they don't like? For crying out loud! NINTENDO is responsible for EVERY release of a video game they produce, whether is us NTSC, NTSC-U, or PAL. You are straight up making false accusation.


WangoBango

Isn't birdo canonically trans?


Phil8show

I do believe so, that's one of the few ones that's in the English versions too. There's probably more they kept in too that I'm forgetting or in many other games i never got to play.


eponinesflowers

You should cross post this on r/starbucks! I work at Starbucks and we love seeing cute posts like this☺️


kittykatflamingo

Good idea!! Will do (:


penelbell

"Partners" amirite


bromst_

I worked at Starbucks for 5 years and am an avid pun fan, feeling pretty silly that I didn't make that "partners" connection till I read this comment :T


Omni-Fry

Wtf are some of the comments on this post lmfao. It's a wholesome tattoo


kittykatflamingo

I know. Some people need therapy 😂


WanderingWilllow1029

Was this in the Milwaukee area in wisconsin by chance!? If so I would like to credit the artist I think this is done by Shannon Parcell at honey wraith tattoo!


kittykatflamingo

No this isn’t in Milwaukee. Maybe he has a tattoo twin!


WanderingWilllow1029

[tattoo](https://www.instagram.com/p/CFj4k2cFzSR/?utm_medium=copy_link) You sure about that?


kittykatflamingo

Maybe they got it done in Milwaukee? All I know is that I am 100% not in Milwaukee lol.


WanderingWilllow1029

Probably traveled for it then because the tattoo above it is the same tattoo on both pics! So fun!


kittykatflamingo

Yea it is definitely the same person in both pictures without a doubt!


Concept_Check

So strange! Because I know the person with this was living in Milwaukee and working at the Starbucks there! Must’ve moved or something. Hah!


PegasusWrangler

Or OP does live in Milwaukee and is trying to deflect and be stealthy


kittykatflamingo

I don’t live in Milwaukee 😂😭


PegasusWrangler

Thats what someone who lives in Milwaukee would say

Mhmmmm


Happy_Cubone1234

I hope his partner got a matching CJ tattoo.

Flick is my favorite. I love his look and his geekery.

Tazia_Rae

Milwaukee right??? I saw their tattoo in the drive-they there six months ago and so wanted to ask for a pic but was too nervous to! (:


kittykatflamingo

No not Milwaukee!


Baguette_Lady

oh yes *business partners* definitely nothing else…


deadjessmeow

I love it!!! Go back and tell him he got a lot of upvotes!!


kittykatflamingo

I will!!


starbitobservatory

Here before the "tHeY'rE jUsT bUsInEsS pArTnErS" people show up


vagina_candle

I mean technically there is more evidence pointing to that than what most people here are implying. And I'm saying this as a long time card carrying homo of the "flaming" variety.


oakteaphone

This isn't about evidence, this is about shipping. You do not get in the way of shippers. I agree with you though. You'd expect to see "pArTnErS" maybe show up at the same place at the same time.


mmarkklar

I think it's more than just shipping. Nintendo tends to be very popular among LGBT people yet the company itself is standoffish at best when it comes to actual LGBT representation and at worst is doing things like not including same sex relationship options in Mii life simulator game Tomodachi Life. I think the Flick/CJ shipping is a larger phenomenon caused by LGBT fans desperate for representation in their favorite games looking for any sign of it at all and celebrating and promoting it when they find it.


oakteaphone

>Nintendo tends to be very popular among LGBT people yet the company itself is standoffish at best when it comes to actual LGBT representation and at worst is doing things like not including same sex relationship options in Mii life simulator game Tomodachi Life. Is Nintendo especially popular amongst LGBT communities, or is Nintendo just popular in general, which includes LGBT people? Lol I can understand wanting to see representation, but forcing it in just makes the problem worse, doesn't it? It doesn't tell Nintendo "We want representation!". It tells Nintendo "We don't need representation, we'll just pretend it's there even if you ignore that we exist".


Bluuwolf

Shippers are such obnoxious people when they go around enforcing their ship as canon


leafyrebecca

I legit try to imagine CJ and Flick meeting in High School. How does the redneck, bass boating, sunglasses on the back of his neck guy and the emo/goth artist guy fall in love?


goldkear

I think they're gone. With the waning popularity of the game, most of the shitty people left.


squishybuggles

Love this so much! Flick is a legend.


DoneTomorrow

i like the idea that you actually didn't ask them for the picture and they just stand at the drive thru like that, positioning the tattoo at everyone like "hey, hey, recognise this? hey, look"


stonedsour

Okay I love this. Flick is a gay icon


kittykatflamingo

Right?!


piano_043

I love that tattoo but honestly I’d regret it if I got an animal crossing tattoo lol


krissin

Is there a video game related tattoo you WOULD get? Just curious. I've considered it, not necessarily AC. Guess it's not much different than getting a band tattoo, or movie, or TV show.


aliienellie

this is my favorite thing


YungMorningstar

That’s so dope, holy shit


kittykatflamingo

I know! I freaked out!!!


modsuperstar

I can't say I much liked Flick before this post, but now I'm clued in that the world seems to be shipping Flick & CJ and I'm here for it. Pretty sure that revelation has made the chat explode 😂


ZiggyPalffyLA

You like CJ more than Flick? That’s a first lol


modsuperstar

Flick don't pay 15,000 bells for sturgeons. CJ is the resident sugar daddy on my island 😂

CJ's way cuter

Cool

I originally thought Flick was a lesbian, but either way he's remained my favorite NPC haha


Twist_Ending03

Yeah I thought he was a gay gal the first time I saw him too. Turns how he's male and his "business partner" is CJ. Lmao.


Fizzysodaaaa

Thats so awesome! I highkey want one like his with flick and cherry❤️🖤

Camppidame

No, he isn’t, people just assume he is.


EarthDust00

2 male characters *exist* Everyone ever "Z0MG GUIZ SUCH GAY ICONS!"


Camppidame

Honestly I could care less if somebody is gay or not, but when they squeeze it in everywhere, and especially games directed towards children, I don’t like it. What does sexuality have to do with anything? It’s so annoying.


prettylittlelau

I love this so much! Flick is my favorite, I wish I could have him as a villager 😭


themaskedcoco

Yeah! Love it! Imma wear rainbow next time he comes


samurottinhell

This could be my personal bias, but I really appreciate the agrias butterfly being there too, as they’re the bi flag’s colors. What a cute piece!

I want and need this.

I already regret looking at it.


fortress-of-yarn

To everyone saying they need this tattoo, you can be inspired but DO NOT try to get an exact copy. Tattoos are art and should be treated like that, it’s frowned upon to get replicas of other tattoos and any artist that agrees to do so is not an artist you should want to work with.

No idea? It’s not canon but neither is Flick/CJ boyfriends. I genuinely feel like Flick could be nb

LadyFiend19

vagina_candle

Did you also ask if you could post the picture to an online forum with literally hundreds of thousands of members? Several other people have mentioned the city where they think they saw this too, so this has turned into a bit of a soft-doxxing.


aceparote

I’m kinda with you on this. Awesome tattoo and they’ve probably shared it themselves in their own social media circles, but idk, it feels almost disrespectful to post a picture of someone else’s tattoo without getting their permission to do so. Tattoos can be very personal, I know I wouldn’t want people posting pictures of mine without my consent. No harm though, OP! Great content for this sub, and I agree that they’re not recognizable, aside from people who’ve seen this person irl. Since people in this sub are the only ones seeing this picture, I think the barista is safe from any doxxing lol


cookie0_0

dude lol you can’t even see their picture or anything related to their body. they are working a public position in the drive through. i don’t think they are making any attempt to conceal who they are to the internet. i’m sure this person gets tons of AC fans comments in real life and is probably even a part of this sub. shut up


kittykatflamingo

This picture wasn’t taken in Milwaukee like a few people have guessed. I just saw the tattoo and loved it and was like omg!! Can I take a picture?! and they said sure and then posed. I cropped out their name tag and face.


vagina_candle

But again, did you specifically ask for consent from the employee to post a picture of them on an internet forum with hundreds of thousands of members, **AND cross post it to a forum of their employer?** If the answer is no, you're still in the wrong regardless of any rationalization you come up with.


kittykatflamingo

I posted it on here because I thought it was super cool tattoo. I cross posted because a different Starbucks employee said I should it because they thought their community would like it. This person literally has a bomb ass cute piece of art on their arm and I thought other ac fans would like it as much as I did. I have never meant any ill will.


pusheenforchange

Yeah. But you posted their arm. Do you even understand how identifying it is to have an arm? And work at a Starbucks? Now you've narrowed it down to only tens of thousands of people around the globe. AND you allowed random internet strangers to make wildly speculative guesses about the persons location based on no information? HOW DARE YOU.


kittykatflamingo
