There are a ton of gamers that absolutely love the Silent Hill games (and movies) but I have to admit I’m just not one of them. Its not that I don’t think they are good because I am sure they are or the franchise would have died out years ago, its just that I have never been a huge fan of survival horror games. I don’t get scared as easily as most people so anything horror related just doesn’t have much appeal to me since it doesn’t really get that reaction out of me. That said, I have a feeling this Silent Hill tattoo might just give me nightmares.
Unfortunately, I don’t know who inked this absolutely amazing Silent Hill full back tattoo to give them the credit they definitely deserve (if you know who did or who the person is in this picture, let me know so I can give them credit) but they are one heck of a talented tattoo artist! Without a doubt, this is one of the best looking tattoos I have ever seen if not the best.
As cool as this is, I can’t help but wonder if it was really such a good idea. I mean, if i was in bed with this person and saw something that scary staring back at me, it would be an instant boner killer. I’m sure there are some guys that would be into something like that but I’d venture to say they are in the minority.
Around a half dozen years ago or so, I was at a local sci-fi convention (which I attend almost every year) when I saw an extremely well done pair of Star Trek tattoos on a women that was walking around the convention. On one side of her back she had Spock and the other she had Captain Picard. That was the first time in my life that I ever really liked a tattoo because until then, I didn’t know they could look so nice. I guess the tattoo artists where I live just suck but ever since then, I have enjoyed seeing pictures of really well done, geeky tattoos.
Speaking of well done Star Trek tattoos, I came across this very impressive Star Trek tattoo while browsing the Star Trek section on Reddit the other day and I thought I should share it.
I’m not sure who this person is or who the artist was that did the work (if you know who they are, let me know in the comments below so I can give them credit), but I am impressed! It is not every day you see a giant Star Trek tattoo on somebody’s back featuring Spock, Kirk, Picard and Data.
As much as I love Star Trek, this would never be something I would do. However, if I lost my mind and decided to do something like this, I would probably go with the cast of DS9 on my back since that is my favorite Star Trek.
I suspect you would have a rather difficult time finding another gaming franchise that people love more than Legend of Zelda. I have been playing the many Legend of Zelda games my entire life and I still enjoy playing them occasionally. As much as I love the gameplay, it is the music that has made me fall in love with the games. Well, while I love the games, some people have a bit more dedication than I do.
This very impressive Legend of Zelda inspired tattoo was created by Alie K. at Archive tattoos Toronto, ON. I’d say she did a great job with it! I am very impressed by how it turned out and I love the use of color.
I love the Legend of Zelda games as much as any Nintendo fanboy but there are limits as to what I will do to show my love for the game. I draw the line at the Legend of Zelda hat and shirt that I like to wear as well as the Twilight Princess wallet that I carry with me. However, there are people that are perhaps a bit more dedicated to the franchise than I am and will go to crazy lengths like permanently inking their body to demonstrate their passion. While I have seen many cool Legend of Zelda tattoos, I don’t think I have ever come across any quite like this.
DeviantART user JMan31337 if the guy that is sporting this awesome Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield, Hylian Sword and Triforce tattoo across his back. This tattoo took 9 hours of work to create and I think it turned out quite well!
While I may not have the courage to endure that kind of pain to show off my love for the Legend of Zelda games, I solute this guy for doing it.
