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

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!
