Hi guys

I posted the start of this tattoo a year ago when it was still a work in progress, so here it is now!


Let me know what you all think :D

Bioshock Big Daddy [17 Dec 2011|10:45pm]

I've posted my other gaming tattoo here before so I thought I would share my new(er) edition. He is the second piece in what I've decided will end up being an entire leg of gaming tattoos.

Right after the line work was all finished...

Dragon Age Tattoo Ideas Needed [22 Sep 2011|12:02am]

I really want to get a Dragon Age themed tat. I want the Grey Warden motto, but I'd like something a bit more than just text. Any thoughts on something to go with it? Nothing really big- I don't want a sleeve or a whole back piece here. Also, I don't mind tying in DAII things with the Origins motto. The only ideas people have given me elsewear is the griffon, and frankly I don't like griffons. So, ideas would be most appreciated... And pics if someone else happened to do a DA tat.

Mass Effect [14 Apr 2011|12:23am]

Today I unexpectedly got my second video game related tattoo (I didn't think I'd have the money for it this soon, but the artist gave me a good deal). My first, which I also posted here almost a year ago, was of Navi from tLoZ: Ocarina of Time; {picture here}!

peace be with youCollapse )

More ink? So Soon? [25 Mar 2011|06:54pm]

Matt at Professional Tattoos in Canton, Ohio did another one for me. I'm a big fan of the PC bullet hell shooter Touhou Project, and fell in love with Suika Ibuki. This was the result. The pic was taken right after it was done, and it's on the back side of my upper arm. It looks like a strange position because I was actually lying down on my stomach with my arm flopped over a small armrest. She's just about healed now, with a couple little scabs left!

So, I know I'm new to this community and I really hate to do something like this and be 'that guy' but for something like this, I will and deal with the consequences. And jenfoldsfive, please feel free to kill this post if you don't think it's appropriate.

Such an intriguing introduction...Collapse )

Mario and Luigi tattoo [21 Feb 2011|09:57pm]

This was in honour of my awesome sister, the Luigi to my Mario (even though I am more of a Luigi fangirl...but I digress). I changed the initials on the hats to match our names, and I meant for it to symbolize how I will always be there to help her reach her dreams. Corny, I know, but we've been through a lot together, and I really treasure our bond. :)

Final Fantasy VII [18 Dec 2010|12:28pm]

Hello all! I stumbled upon this community not too long ago, and I wanted to share the tattoo that I received just two days ago.

This is the fourth tat, and it's quite frankly my favorite video game. There's a small story behind this game as well.

My grandpa purchased Final Fantasy VII when it was first released and laid it on the kitchen table for me to see when I came home from school. He said I couldn't play it until I scored at least ten points in the basketball game I had that following weekend. He always gave me a goal to attempt to reach before I could get my 'reward'. I was determined to play that game, so I scored ten points. I came home and played FFVII non-stop. It was the first game that actually turned me into a gamer.

My grandfather passed away three and a half years ago, and he was the one that pretty much turned me into a gamer just from FFVII.

I'll be posting some more pictures as it heals, but I wanted to give a back story =) D'Wan Ellington of Under the Gun in Terre Haute, IN used his artistry on the tattoo. It also helped he was a FF fan and a gamer nerd, too! This picture was taken with a cell phone. Once I get home and have time, I'll be taking better pictures with my camera. Hope you guys like it!!

The location of the tattoo is approximately three inches above the knee on the right thigh.

Mass Effect Tattoos [04 Nov 2010|02:37pm]

[ mood | impressed ]

First time here and I admit I lurk this community for a while. Until now.

Recently, I played ( And still I'm playing these days ) Mass Effect 2 and when I met Zaeed Massani and I saw his tattoo at the upper-right arm and I kind of liking it.

However, I never saw this design or style as a tattoo. Does anyone of you know what kind of style it is, or it's just a creation by the illustrator who thought it was cool ? Also, I don't know if I'll make the tattoo with exactly the same, maybe more personnalize.

Anyway, here is the only shot I can find at best about the tattoo I'm talking about.


And maybe with this video wehen we met for the first time the veteran ( at 0:47 we can see clearly the tattoo ).

Any help is helpful.

Chibiterasu Tattoo! [19 Oct 2010|02:01am]

Just got my newest tattoo addition on Thursday! I'm a big fan of the Okami series, and think that Chibiterasu is one of the most adorable things ever.
This was done by my friend Matt at Professional Tattoos in Canton, Ohio.

It looks pretty bad now since it's all scabby and gross, but this was what it looked like right after it was done!

This was originally started under lousy circumstances by someone that was under the influence of stuff, took forever, and we didn't have time to finish it. About 80% of the line work got done and it sat like that for about a year-and-a-half until I finally got it finished by my friend Beth at Zebra in Berkeley (also works at Frisco in San Francisco). It's less than perfect due to how it was started but it's a hell of a lot better now than it was before and I'm happy with it.

My second halfsleeve [24 Sep 2010|03:51am]

I made the jump, started up my second halfsleeve. So in addition to the 14 some characters I have on my left arm, I now have another 9 characters (and space for two more) on my right arm. Large image inside a cut.

I take my companion cube everywhereCollapse )

I'm using the Big Daddy to cover up my Calvin and Hobbes tattoo. It's my first cover up and I'm a little sad to see it go. Unfortunately, I didn't have the foresight for double video game halfsleeves 6 years ago.

So if you can't make them all out, I've got:
-Blathers (Animal Crossing)
-Max (Sam & Max)
-Companion Cube (Portal)
-Vivi (Final Fantasy IX)
-Amaterasu (Okami)
-Big Daddy (Bioshock)
-Luma (Super Mario Galaxy)
-Raz (Psychonauts)
-Spiritomb (Pokemon)

Dotted inbetween the designs are Tetris blocks and Dr. Mario pills.

Galaga starship [20 Sep 2010|08:20pm]

 Hey guys!

I just recently re-joined LJ to help meet people interested in gaming. Looks like I have found the right crowd.

Before i show my tattoo, I would like to ask for anyone's help with something I am working on. 

 I am looking for a few people that are willing to share their story about why they got inked with the particular video game character or symbol they did. i am trying to write an article and would love to be able to use at least your first name and the story behind your favorite video game related tattoo. 

If you want to help me please contact me.

Now..... My Tattoo (sorry for the bad quality, i really should take a new one)

sorry for the bad quality. I really should re-take a new one.
