Obsessively Awesome or a Tat Too Far?

TMNT Krang Stomach Tattoo
TMNT Krang Stomach Tattoo

I got sent this picture on Facebook the other day as I was wasting away my Sunday with the hope of someone turning up at my door with a hot Roast dinner in hand to cure my hangover.

It made me laugh as it’s an awesome idea for a tattoo and in an absolutely perfect position but it got me thinking, just how far are my fellow tat fans prepared to go to show their love for their ultimate pop culture icons?

I didn’t have to look hard – appears there are a whole host of fellow nostalgia fans out there who will go pretty damn far in their quest to show their appreciation for all things old school. Here’s a few of my favourites.

Nintendo sleeve (plus Megatron!)
Nintendo sleeve (plus Megatron!)

This full sleeve is made up mostly of Nintendo characters with Megatron randomly chucked in (apparently he was there before the owner of said tattoo decided to go all out with a full sleeve.) Not being a Mario fan as a kid, I guess I always wanted Megatron to turn up at Bowsers castle and show Mario how you start a ruckus so this definitely floats my boat.

Muppets Tattoo
Muppets Tattoo

The awesomeness that is the Muppets band in tattoo form – the colours are awesome.

Star Wars Tattoo

This guy must have totally crossed the streams to get this sick Leg tattoo inspired by the Ghostbusters movie. The detail is unreal.

Labyrinth
Labyrinth Tat

This leg tattoo pays homage to one of my favourite 80’s movies, Labyrinth. I always thought I was a pretty major Labyrinth fan, now I just feel lame!

And it’s not just the boys getting in on the action..

Alice in Wonderland - A Tattoo story
Alice in Wonderland - A Tattoo story

Yes – this brave lady has just about the entire Alice in Wonderland story inked across the upper half of her body.  Now that’s dedication!

It really does look like his skin has been torn off reveling his inner Superhero. A tat too far me thinks although maximum respect for having the balls to pay tribute to Spidey in such a dramatic way!

Let us know if this has got you emptying your bank account and booking in for a full body Spider-man costume tattoo, we’ll definitely want to hear about it.

George Lucas wants our money again…
