I’ve been considering getting a new tattoo lately. I currently have one on my left wrist (Lord of the Rings related… I know, I know) that I’ve been hoping to get covered up. Naturally, I figured maybe I could go with a gamer tattoo for the cover up. It would only make sense. Or Toothless. Toothless is cool too.
If you ever wanted to get a unique gamer tattoo, let me tell you right now – anything Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog or Super Mario Bros. related is already out. Seriously. Put those out of your mind right now and look for something else if what you want to go for is unique. I had no idea until I started researching this article that those three games had a monopoly on the gaming tattoo market!
I will admit though, many of them are pretty well done. So without further ado, here are some pretty wicked gaming tattoos. I tried to stick mainly with tattoos on women… for obvious reasons!
1. Mario & Luigi
While this one is pretty cool, I feel like it being on the bottom of your feet would be a bad idea. Let’s forget that it’d hurt like hell, but I have no doubt that this is one place on your body where a tattoo would fade – and fast.
2. Super Mario Bros.
Pretty well done, a little too colorful for my tastes though. And… chest placement. Way too much for me.
3. Zelda – the Hylian Crest
Another super popular one amongst Zelda fans. If you’re not familiar with the Hylian Crest, you can read about it here.
4. Gears of War
I actually really dig this one, but it would unfortunately never cover up my current tattoo. Damn you, black ink!
Also another big favorite! A girl after my own heart. *le Swoon*
6. Zelda Triforce
This one is definitely more my style. Small, understated, perfect for the wrist. This chick really nailed it with this one, in my opinion.
7. Zelda Triforce (2)
8. Fallout Vault Boy
I don’t think you could ever really go wrong with the Fallout Vault Boy.
9. Skyrim – Fus Ro Dah!
Probably my favorite of the set. I think I’m seeing a pattern in myself with the love of Skyrim tattoos…
10. Zelda – Couples Tattoo
Apparently, couples tattoos among gaming couples are way more common than I thought! I suppose the upside to this one is that, if they ever break up, the tattoos are still easily explained.
