just thought id start a thread to see if there's anyone else out there who is dedicated enough to get a geeky tattoo? And on that note what do you think the coolest game tattoos are , I personally think faiths from mirrors edge are cooooooooool :)

I know someone who has the logo from the game Black & White tattooed on the top of his arm.

Unless you know what the logo looks like you would not know what it was, so it's not like it's a Doom tattoo or anything.

I have a "Legend of Zelda" tattoo. It's fairly large, on my right arm. It's pretty sweet.

If I did have one, even though im 19, my parents would screw.

Better not get a tattoo then, not unless you want a younger sibling. But on subject, the thought has crossed my mind to get a gaming related tattoo. Problem is trying to explain the tattoo to someone who doesn't know anything about gaming.

I already have a tattoo on my back, a cross with wings. But a gaming related tattoo would make them say how stupid it is and how much of a sad person I am.

I've been considering getting the Crimson Omen somewhere. Might do it later on in life.

No way I'd go that far. Wearing T-shirts with video game related stuff on them is as far as I go.

i dont think i'll ever get a tattoo directly linked to a game, but when im older i want to get some sort of military tattoo. Which i say you could link to games like cod4 or 5 i dunno its upto you.

That being said, i already have 2 tattoos. ;)

I'm getting a gigantic tattoo of an altered Tyrael from diablo 2.
The price is outrageous so i'll have to wait awhile to get it.

Presumably one another? Not sure if another tatt thread is needed though as I've seen a few gaming tatts posted on the other one.

Not to be a party pooper but pictures of the tats would be cool.I have a dragon Tattoo that took 10 hours.I love it its a one of a kind.I got it with 17 but had it planned since 14 I am obsessed with dragons which is why I want another one on my other shoulder.Gaming tattoo's im not sure off because a tattoo is forever so its always dangerous with a tattoo you are not sure to love when your 30 or 60 or older.

not to be rude, but how the hell did that dragon take 10 hours? that is NOT 10 hours work, that's about 2 hours or so. if that took 10 hours, whoever did it is slooooow.

here's the Zelda tatt i mentioned.

Was honestly thinking the same thing myself. My entire upper back took about 4.5 hours but it's not coloured. I'm guessing it was the shading (it looks faded from the pic now but I can see different shades of green)? Even then, 10 hours seems awfully long. I'd have guessed from the size and shading, maybe 4 hours tops? Not bad though.

Thankfully she was young and fairly attractive, so it was pretty intriguing instead of utterly repulsive.

if i were to ever get one, i would only get the gears of war logo, that would be epic :D
don't think i'd ever get one though.

If I was to get a gaming tattoo i'd get the Doom logo or an imp :D I have a biomechanical sleeve as it is, so I would be very tempted.

my friends got a whole sleeve of oddworld. I don't think ive ever liked a game enough to get a tattoo if it, might get a watchmen related tat though

I used to work with a guy who had this little pencil-thin mustache tatooed on his upper lip...seemed a bit odd, but guess it's easier than tryin' to trim a real one

I have the shirt with that on it actually.

I plan on getting a gaming tattoo or two, or more eventually, just haven't decided what and where yet. I already have four
1) from a comic book
2) from a movie
and 3 & 4 are from a web series.
So why not a video game? ^_^

it needs some outlines, the skull needs a lil bit shadow and in the complete tattoo must be more flow (more different reds)

I'd have guessed from the size and shading, maybe 4 hours tops? Not bad though.

I know I'm a few pages behind on this, but anyhow... The colors/shading doesn't make a difference. That's still really slow. I have a sleeve (all black) from my wrist to my elbow and there's some really detailed parts in it, and there's different levels of shading with different densities and that entire piece took 4.5 hrs.

Regarding tattoos of games. I have quite a few tattoos and I don't think I could ever have a game-related tattoo. They don't hold up with the times and there's something about them that's just so un-appealing.
