Perhaps my all time favorite series of video games is the God of War franchise. I have been playing the original through again lately and I wear a really cool God of War hat everywhere I go to show just how much I love the games inspired by ancient Greek mythology. Well, judging by this tattoo, there might be an even bigger God of War fan than me!
This incredible and very realistic Kratos tattoo was inked by Australian tattoo artist Benjamin Laukis. If I was ever in Australia and decided to get a tattoo, I would have this guy give me a God of War tattoo just like this!
Even though I have no desire to ever get a tattoo, I have to admit I am very jealous of whoever got this tattoo. It is very well done and would definitely strike fear in anybody’s enemies!
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!
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 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!
