Gamer Ink: Mario and Peach!

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

I’ve seen enough gamer tattoo’s pass through my inbox that when I see Mario or Zelda in the subject line I can pretty much guess what I’m going to see. Luckily here that isn’t the case. Mario’s even being nice offering that cute Koopa Troopa his shell back!

This isn’t standard clipart of the normal Mario poses, and has a very nice background that will lead very nicely into a full sleeve if they ever decide o keep it going. Nice work!



Gamer Ink: Lulu and Rikku (and a Rinoa Heartilly doll)

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

At first this looks like just a cool Final Fantasy X tattoo of Lulu, but it turns out there’s a cool backstory to the tattoo. Turns out the bearer of this tattoo lost a close friend when she passed away and the Lulu character always reminded him of her. It’s a great way to remember those we’ve lost and is one of the more common reasons for getting a tattoo.

Nice to know that not only does he have a great looking tattoo on his body but a great way to remember someone special. Thanks so much for sharing!

As a bonus, his daughter has a Rikku tattoo (and she’s wearing what appears to be a “I Heart Boobies” wristband which instantly makes her awesome)



Gamer Ink: Blue Slime

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

Perfectly pixelated and ready for action!

The Blue Slime enemy from Dragon Warrior is certainly one of the more iconic baddies from gaming history and to be quite honest I’m kinda surprised this is the first one we’ve seen here.

The “pixelated” look is always hit or miss since if the lines aren’t perfectly straight the whole effect is lost. But the artist here did a fine job, and everything looks spot on. Nice work!



Gamer Ink: Lemmings!

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

This tattoo was sent to us by Darlaa Sproklett and was inked by Charlie at Leading light Drammen in Norway.

Well now this is what I like to see. Homage to a classic game, and something a tad obscure and not another Triforce or Mario tattoo. Not that there’s anything wrong with them to get, but you can only feature so many that look so alike… ya know?

So yea, Lemmings. Just seeing this tattoo makes me want to find the game and play it again, just to listen to them scream as you send legions of them over cliffs… occasionally putting up a few blockers and them blowing them all up. Yea, suffice to say I never made it far into the game before committing Lemming genocide.

At this point we’ve got a pretty impressive catalog of gamer tats!!



Gamer Ink: The finished full sleeve!

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

A few weeks back we had some pics up of the half-finished full gamer sleeve tattoo. Now we’re back with the finished piece! The results are pretty kick-ass, wear it proud!

Tat includes, Paper Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Nel from Star Ocean, Ghoul from Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft series, the Dead 6 logo from C&C: Renegade, and a Poe from Zelda series (might not be seen in the pictures)



Laser-Etching Pac-Man Tattoo

by the hammer of Santos Gonzalez!

Not sure why anybody would want to shoot yourself with a Laser but the results aren’t half bad. You can check out a video of the laser in action after the jump.

Gamer Ink: The full sleeve!

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

I’m loving the mixture of all the different games here, it really covers the gamut and runs the full range of gaming. Retro, PC, console, you name it. That’s some nice work there. I’m always impressed by a tattoo when it just seems to be drawn on, it shows a real talent on the part of the tattooist.

Tat includes, Paper Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Nel from Star Ocean, Ghoul from Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft series, the Dead 6 logo from C&C: Renegade, and a Poe from Zelda series (might not be seen in the pictures)

Gamer Ink: Murloc Tat

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

murloctat2.jpgOh baby, these little bastards and that horrible murky moan haunted my dreams during some early questing in World of Warcraft. Hell, I remember heading back to a low-level area with these guys to just mow through them for fun. Serves ‘em right.

Although that murloc suit given away at Blizzcon WAS THE SHIT.



Gamer Ink: A body of work

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!


We got a serious video game tattoo fan here today folks! She’s got not 1,2,3 but 4 game related tattoos! I’ll let her do the explaining…

The first one is the heart from Kingdom Hearts II, then I got Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, my third one was the spiritual stones from Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and my newest is a mandragora from Final Fantasy XI

Gamer Ink: Geek Knuckles

by the hammer of Dan Zuccarelli!

Well goddamn, that’s a public place for a tattoo alright.

I dig the classic black and gray, and while the placement doesn’t work for me…. it’s not my ink so I don’t have to wear it. I like the take on the usual letters on the knuckles though, maybe his other hand says “nerd” or “geek!”
