Gaming Tattoos?

Postby TheGamesShed » Tue Jun 19, 2012 10:44 am

Hello all,

We have recently featured 2 of our twitter followers who have wicked Retro gaming tattoos. We would love to make this a regular feature on http://www.thegamesshed.com including possible advertising of tattoo parlours specialising in this kind of thing.

Do you have any Retro or Modern gaming tattoos? We would love to hear from you.

Email us - info@thegamesshed.com or tweet us @gamesshed

If I have big enough arms one day I want to do a God of War armpiece done. However I'm also debating wether to just have the Omega logo and some greek writing, maybe some chains... I don't really know where and the details yet. But the idea is around since I first discovered God of War years ago so its not just some random idea that popped in my head.
Unlike the idea of a tattoo depicting a PS2 controller (since its the console I have the most affection for/memories of) - I relatively quickly dismissed that again.

I do know a guy from a tech forum who has an awesome Super Mario armpiece. Other gaming tattoos I came across or found in google are either silly, not well done, or plain unfitting. like the Pacman piece on some dudes ass.

I've wanted a transformer tat for some time of Cerebrous(sp?) (he is the one that builds fortress maximus) in "rebirth".
I identified that he was a moody git when I was quite young and he became my favourite but the wife is dead against it and I have to listen to her unfortunately. :roll:

I am considering a Lancaster bomber whilst we're on the subject of tats though...

I got Jin's mark from the God of Fighting in Tekken done when I was 16-17. I had wanted it ever since I played Tekken 3. I also have the One Ring from Lord of the Rings on my other arm for ultimate geeknessness haha

I have 2 at the moment, but planning on a full leg sleeve filled with video game and cartoon characters.

I have Pikachu (Which could do with a touch up)

And Sonic:

Here's a better pic just after it was finished!

Wahay, someone actually posted pics! Love the Sonic one :)

I don't have any tattoos. But if I ever do it will be small and meaningful. And game related of course.

Bad picture of me but it's the clearest one I have with my arm in view, I'll try to take a better one sometime.

Yeah sure, I'll send you an email!

The sleeve will be a long process as I haven't figured out where I want everything and how it'll fit in yet!
