Archives For ink

Since the young age of 2, I have been playing video games.  While I spent a good bit of my childhood dropping quarters at the local arcade, most of my gaming was done on Nintendo consoles like the NES.  So its pretty safe to say there is a special place in my heart for old Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros (which I still play almost daily 23 years later) and the Legend of Zelda.

While I may have a huge love for old Nintendo games and blog about it on occasion, there is one cool guy that prefers to wear his love for old Nintendo games on his sleeve.  He even went so far as to get a Nintendo tattoo sleeve!

This awesome Nintendo sleeve tattoo belongs to Johan Jonk Stenström.  It was inked by the obviously talented tattoo artist Mina at Hawk and Sparrows and the picture was taken by Lisa.

I don’t know if it is the quality of the tattoo artists where I live or the poor ability of people to pick/design a decent tattoo (maybe both), but the tattoos that I see people sporting around where I live really suck.  Well, most aren’t terrible but in comparison to tattoos like this Batman inspired tattoo below, they make you wonder why they even bothered to get one in the first place.

This amazing tattoo of Batman punching Joker was inked by Josh at City of Ink in Christchurch, New Zealand. The detail on this Batman tattoo is very impressive!  I would say Josh hit a home run when he inked this tattoo!  The guy who also had it inked on his side is clearly a pretty cool dude too!

However, I am curious if the tattoo is black and white or just the photo?

The Borderlands games are great and certainly worthy of making for some great tattoos, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time I have ever seen somebody take the box art from a game and turn it into a tattoo.  That seems to be exactly what one Borderlands fan has done with this amazing Psycho Bandit tattoo!

The clearly talented tattoo artist Dane Grannon is the guy that inked this amazing Borderlands tattoo inspired by the game’s box art.  I am blown away by how the coloring turned out on this Borderlands tattoo.  I think that is probably what makes it so great looking!

If gaming tattoos is what you like, I suggest also checking out the sexy NES controller and Super Mario Bros tattoo I posted a while back.

Good news everyone!  It is a Monday again!  Ok, that sounds more like bad news to me, but if every Monday came with pictures of fantastic Futurama tattoos like the one below, then Mondays might not suck so much!

I’m not sure who the obviously talented person is that inked this impressive full sleeve Futurama tattoo (if you know who did it, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve), but the arm belongs to Planet Express Employee Lounge forum member TheBjorkDork.  This person is definitely the ultimate Futurama fan!

I love the color in this tattoo!

I can understand people getting tattoos on areas of skin that aren’t that sensitive  like around the shoulders or something but just the thought of getting a tattoo on my feet makes me cringe.  Well, that is exactly where one Super Mario Bros fan got his tattoo!

Ben Hostetler is the person sporting this sweet Koopa Troopa tattoo on their foot.  The tattoo parlor that did this piece of gaming body art was the Atomic Tattoo branch in Tampa, Florida.

Apparently Ben fell in love with Super Mario Bros as a young kid (like myself) and instead of jumping on turtles, now spends his time rehabbing turtles he finds in chlorinated pools while working as a pool technician (not like myself).  Props to Ben on the awesome tattoo and helping out turtles instead of jumping on them!

Back in my early geek days (probably around 6th grade), HTML was the first language I learned.  I took some kids college course one summer so I could learn how to make websites.  Amazingly, I still use my HTML skills almost every day (mostly because of blogging) and I show off my love for the language with the
HTML HEAD tag hat from ThinkGeek
.  Anyway, apparently I am not the only one with a love for HTML because this girl apparently decided to have the closing head tag and the opening body tag tattooed on the back of her neck.  Talk about geeky!

One of my favorite games growing up was Duck Hunt on the NES.  I think perhaps that may have been where I first got my love for guns.  Well, I am not the only one who loves that NES classic but I am not sure I love it enough to tattoo a couple of 8-bit ducks to my chest.  The guy with this tattoo is Steve McHaggis and he is apparently thinking of getting the snickering dog tattooed on his ribs to complete the Duck Hunt theme and I think this is the best tattoo idea I have ever heard!  I bet the gamer girls go wild over this guy!  If you have any geeky tattoos, drop us a line and tell us about them at pcnerd37 [at] globalgeeknews.com

Considering how bad tattoos tend to look after a few years, I still don’t understand why people think its a good idea to get them but at least people that do, tend to get some pretty awesome ones.  In this particular case, this Star Wars fan got a bunch of Star Wars ships and such inked into her back.  I’d say more of them are pretty cool but seeing the Death Star in the shape of a heart just seems really strange.  The tie bomber and X-wing look great though!
