I Want a Videogame Tattoo Part 3


A few months back I was contemplating getting inked with a videogame tattoo. The three specific franchises I looked at were the Zelda, Mario and Resident Evil franchises — as they were the first to spark and ignite my gaming obsession– but unfortunately the thought of needling my epidermis with a symbol from aforementioned games didn’t turn my crank, nah’mean? Because while having a Triforce, mushroom or decaying zombie displayed on my body sounds enticing, I don’t know if it’d be a great fit for me. (Although I am more opt to the idea of receiving a tattoo from the Zelda series as opposed to the others.) 

Sooo, I am back in contemplating mode and am thinking about other games that mean a super-duper lot to  yours truly.

Like Earthbound.

Sadly, this isn't my photo.

Siiiiigh….I remember when I first laid eyes upon Earthbound. It was so sexy with its huge box. My parents and I had just returned from a vacation– during which my aunt had been watching the house–and as a welcome home present she bought me the beastly RPG and left it on our kitchen counter. Let me tell you, it was love at first sight…it was so beautiful…until my mom burned the box, that is.

Anyway, I have fond memories of discussing this game for hours with my aunt, watching her play and having her assist me with my save file. It was one of the first games to introduce me to zombies and probably the first Teen game I ever played.

But what about getting a tattoo of something from Earthbound?

Ah, Mr. Saturn. Arguably one of the cutest lil’ dudes ever, if not only because of their, uh, language. It was always big and swirly.

OMFG! This is where I got the saying “Kay-o” from! <3333Oh, Pokey. You rat bastard. Cool tat, but HELL NAW.

The crew! Hahaha...he has Poo tatted on him. >D #Immature

I like the pixelated look on this one!

Cute, but I still like the pixelated look more. Fact: I named my dog Bowser.

AWWWWW!!! It's Tessie!! <3Dedication: this person has it.

Granted, I don’t want to steal someone’s exact tattoo but none of these triggered any mind-blowing ideas. That being said, Mr. Saturn would be cute but ummm…yeah. I dunno. TOUGH DECISION IS TOUGH!!!
I shall continue my search!

    I plan on getting a Resident Evil tattoo myself as it is the first series to introduce me to survival horror and ignite my obsession with zombies. Since I personally feel a decaying zombie is tasteless I an opting for an umbrella corporation logo instead. Haven’t decided where though. Just figured I’d comment about it since you originally were thinking of resident evil.

      Oh sweet! I think that logo would be a great idea. I saw someone who had gotten the Biohazard symbol on the inside of their wrist and it looked freakin’ sweet.

    In my opinion you should just get on tattoo from all of the different games on you. At least that’s my plan.

    • Britt

      Make it a sleeve? ;D

  • dmann

    What about a zombified mushroom with a Triforce on the head of it?

    Then you have all of the above…

    • Britt

      Genius. Dude, you are full of good ideas. LOL!

  • I suppose it depends on whether you’re going for the look of the tattoo, or the personality of it.

    A Triforce or something of that nature could be artful. Just generally speaking an artful tattoo and good looking body is a good combination.

    A pixelated tattoo doesn’t really strike me as artful (though I’m not exactly known for my artistic eye). At the very least it’s not as graceful. However, it could still carry a lot of personality. So, if you can rock it, it would work.

    Just my two cents.

    • Britt

      True, true. There is so much to think about!

    I had the guide for earthbound in my finger tips once, if only I had used the jedi mind trick to TAKE IT! XD!
