The Good, The Bad & The Ugly of Gamer Tattoos
Have you ever loved something so much that you wanted to remember it forever? Perhaps a loved one’s name or a symbol? What about a VIDEO GAME? I scoured the web and found a lot of video game tattoos ranging from god awfully bad to Just AMAZING. To start it off, we are going to start with the better ones.
Full Arm Tattoos
Too Much you may say? Personally I don’t think so. But these are well drawn, beautifully colored & shaded. Boy did they take some extreme dedication & Time & for that not only do we salute you buy they earned the number one spot.
Full Back Mario
Truly inventive artistic direction resulted in this monster tribute to Mario.
Stained Glass Zelda
This tattoo would make a beautiful stained glass window. Precious.
The Creative Mario Series!
Mario’s head on Master Chief’s body holding a pokeball? What the Duece. All of these tattoos show that Mario is, in fact, a vehicle for creative expression.
Cute is cool. I love this simple rendition of Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet & The Companion Cube/Birthday Cake from Portal.
3DS Augmented Reality Tattoo
This one might take the cake, because this guy got his AR Card inked on his arm, allowing him to bust out his Mii anywhere and freak people out with both Augmented Reality, and a really weird tattoo.
While these tats turned out pretty good, there is nothing quite as funny as a bad tattoo, and gamers have figured out to pull off some of the worst. Be warned, some of these are kind of bad.
I think if it had some shading to it & maybe was running down his are with the working a bit smaller he might get away with it.
Love Handle Holsters
Something tells me those guns might used to have been smaller.
If you’re “finishing him”, shouldn’t one of the guys be knocked unconscious or something? Not still fighting Epic Fail.
Overdone 1UP symbol + blood = crappy tattoo.
The one question that comes to mind when you see these tattoos: WHY?
Perhaps it comes as no surprise that there are tons of people out there who permanently marked their body to pay homage to their favorite games. We picked our most loved and hated, but there’s always room for debate, so feel free to comment with links to the other gems you’ve found.
