Man I thought the gamer tattoos were going to be lame, but the Phantom Ganon one and the Okami ones were pretty great looking.

Hmm, I've never wanted a tattoo before but - UV*-reactive tattoo ink...

A friend of mine recently got a pinball button tattooed on each hip. She's planning on getting pinball flippers on the small of her back. Hawt.

Finally a lower back tattoo I can get behind.

I saw some black-light tattoos online recently. Those are kind of cool, because you can't see them in daylight.

After seeing a bunch of these, I don't think I could ever want a tattoo.

I've been thinking about getting an "M" tattooed on each ass cheek. It either spells MOM or WOW, depending on your point of view...

ObHanzismatter, for those who don't realize their ornate Asian "Bountiful Peace" tatoo actually says: "Kung Pao Chicken".

RavinDave, what an awesome blog. I liked the Finnish racist entry. What a dumbass.

Whoa, page 9 of the geek tattoo page has this excellent tron-like circuitry around a nice pair of breasts. NSFW of course.

The anatomy tattoos are awesome...for about a month. Then the regret would start in.

They should make a temporary tattoo (in colors) that lasts that long.

My first ever post. I tattooed Jim Acord's Radioactive Material's License number on the back of his neck at my tattoo parlor (PBS filmed the whole process). At that time, he was trying to achieve a sort of modern day alchemy status by utilizing radioactive material as his medium and incorporating it into his sculptures.

Jim had the privilege of being the only citizen in the entire world to own a RML number.

Here are a few pictures of his objective, his official government license, his finished tattoo and Jim receiving his first shipment of fuel assemblies.

More interesting links about Jim Acord here and here.

Funny, I was just at the shop talking with the artist about the tattoo work I'm starting on tomorrow.
A tomato pin cushion and a sewing machine on my shoulders.

Is that geeky? I don't even know anymore.

I saw his pic earlier and wonder if I know him because he looks really familiar. Any chance he dated a person with the last name Ferguson from Cortes Island? If so, he dated a friend's sister about a decade ago.

There's certainly a chance. I met him because he was helping out at the Soundwave music festival near Ucluelet on Vancouver Island this year. His name's Drew, if that helps.

Jon: Very likely the same guy. The name rings a bell.

I love coincidences :)

More gamer tattoos
40K Officio Assassinorium
40K Space Wolves
I can't seem to find my friend's Slaaneshi symbol or another guy with Space Wolves chapter insignia.
